Handling Precautions
Please Read
Test Shots
Before you try to photograph important subjects, we highly
recommend that you shoot several trial images to confirm that the
camera is operating and being operated correctly.
Please note that Canon Inc., its subsidiaries and affiliates, and its
distributors are not liable for any consequential damages arising
from any malfunction of a camera or accessory, including memory
cards, that results in the failure of an image to be recorded or to be
recorded in a way that is machine readable.
Warning Against Copyright Infringement
Please note that Canon digital cameras are intended for personal
use and should never be used in a manner that infringes upon or
contravenes international or domestic copyright laws and
regulations. Please be advised that in certain cases the copying of
images from performances, exhibitions, or commercial properties
by means of a camera or other device may contravene copyright or
other legal rights even if the image was shot for personal use.
Warranty Limitations

If your camera is used for prolonged periods, the camera body
may become warm. Please be aware of this and take care when
operating the camera for an extended period.
About the LCD Monitor
The LCD monitor is produced with extremely high-precision
manufacturing techniques. More than 99.99% of the pixels
operate to specification. Less than 0.01% of the pixels may
occasionally misfire or appear as red or black dots. This has no
effect on the recorded image and does not constitute a
malfunction.
Video Format
Please set the camera's video signal format to the one used in your
region before using it with a TV monitor (p. 97).
Language Setting
Please see the Basic Guide (p. 11) to change the language setting.
Safety Precautions
Before using the camera, please ensure that you read the safety
precautions described below and in the "Safety Precautions"
section of the Basic Camera User Guide. Always ensure that the
camera is operated correctly.
The safety precautions noted on the following pages are intended
to instruct you in the safe and correct operation of the camera and
its accessories to prevent injuries or damage to yourself, other
persons and equipment. Be sure you fully understand them before
reading the rest of the manual.

Histogram Function
The histogram is a graph that allows you to check the brightness
of the image. The greater the bias toward the left in the graph, the
darker the image. The greater the bias toward the right, the
brighter the image.
If the image is too dark, adjust the exposure compensation to a
positive value. Similarly, adjust the exposure compensation to a
negative value if the image is too bright (p. 48).

The nature of CCD image sensors is such that noise in the
recorded image increases at long shutter speeds. This
camera, however, applies special processing to images shot
at shutter speeds slower than 1.3 seconds to eliminate the
noise, thereby producing high-quality images. A certain
amount of processing time, however, may be required before
the next image can be shot.
Use the LCD monitor to confirm that the image was
recorded at the desired brightness.
Please note that camera shake becomes a factor at low
shutter speeds. Shoot with the camera attached to a tripod.

Even if the Auto Rotate function is set to [On], the
orientation of images downloaded to a computer will

When the camera is held vertically to shoot, the Intelligent
Orientation sensor judges the upper end to be "up" and the
lower end to be "down". It then regulates the optimal white
balance, exposure and focus for vertical photography. This
function operates regardless of the on/off status of the Auto
Rotate function.

Battery Handling
Battery Charge
The following icon and message will display.
Change the battery pack
Battery charge is low.
Recharge it as soon as
possible it will be used for an
extended period.
Battery charge is insufficient to
operate the camera. Replace
the battery immediately.
Battery Handling Precautions
Downloaded From camera-usermanual.com Canon Manuals
Appendix
Keep the battery terminals clean at all times.
Dirty terminals may cause poor contact between the battery and
camera. Polish the terminals with a soft cotton swab before
charging or using the battery.
At low temperatures, battery performance may be reduced
and the low battery icon ( ) may appear earlier than usual.
Under these conditions, revive the battery by warming it in a
pocket immediately before use.
However, ensure that there are no metallic items in the
pocket that could cause a short circuit, such as a key ring,
etc.
The battery may be short circuiting.
Do not allow any metal objects
Fig. B
Fig. A
such as key rings to touch the
( ) and ( ) terminals (Fig. A).
To carry the battery or store it
during periods of disuse, always
replace the terminal cover (Fig.
B).
These conditions can damage the
battery.
115
You may be able to check the charge state depending upon how
the terminal cover is attached (Fig. C, D).
Fig. D
Fig. C
Charged Battery
Attach it so the

Spent Battery
Attach it the
opposite way to
Fig. C.
You are recommended to use it in the camera until it is
completely discharged and to store it in an indoor location
with low relative humidity and between the temperatures of
0 – 30 °C (32 – 86 °F).
Storing a fully charged battery for long periods of time (about one
year) may shorten its life cycle or affect its performance. If you do
not use the battery for long periods of time, charge it fully and
discharge it fully in the camera about once a year before
returning it to storage.
Charging the Battery
Use the supplied camera station and compact power adapter
or Battery Charger CB-2LV/CB-2LVE (sold separately) to
recharge Battery Pack NB-4L.
Since this is a lithium-ion battery, you need not completely
discharge it before recharging.
It takes approximately 1 hour 30 minutes to fully charge the
battery from a depleted state (based on Canon’s testing
standards).
• Charging it within a temperature range of 5 – 40 °C (41 – 104
°F) is recommended.
• Charge times may vary according to the ambient temperature
and the battery's charge state.
You are advised to charge the battery on the day of use, or
one day before, to ensure a full charge.
Even charged batteries continue to discharge naturally.
If the performance of the battery diminishes substantially
even when it is fully charged, its life has been exceeded and
it should be replaced.

Cautions When Handling
Downloaded From camera-usermanual.com Canon Manuals
Appendix
Memory cards are high-precision electronic devices. Do not
bend them, apply force to them, or subject them to shocks
or vibration.
Do not attempt to disassemble or alter the memory card.
Do not allow dirt, water or foreign objects to contact the
terminals on the back of the card. Do not touch the
terminals with your hands or metal objects.
Do not peel away the original label on the memory card or
cover it with another label or sticker.
When writing on the memory card, do not use a pencil or
ball-point pen. Only use a soft point pen (e.g. felt-tip pen).
Do not use or store memory cards in the following
locations.
• Locations subject to dust or sand
• Locations subject to high humidity and high temperatures
Since some or all of the data recorded on the memory card
may be corrupted or erased by electrical noise, static
electricity, or camera or card malfunction, making a backup
copy of important data is recommended.
117
Formatting
Please note that formatting (initializing) an memory card
erases all data, including protected images.
You are recommended to use memory cards that have been
formatted in your camera.
• The card supplied with the camera may be used without further
formatting.
• When the camera is malfunctioning, a corrupted memory card
might be the cause. Reformatting the memory card may solve
the problem.
• When a non-Canon brand memory card is malfunctioning,
reformatting it may solve the problem.
• Memory cards formatted in other cameras, computers, or
peripheral devices may not operate correctly in this camera.
When that happens, reformat the memory card with this
camera.
If formatting in the camera does not work properly, turn the
camera off and re-insert the memory card. Then turn the
camera back on and format again.
Data on a card is not completely erased even when the card
is formatted or images are erased because these processes
merely change the file management data. Please note this
fact when transferring ownership or disposing of cards.
Take care to destroy the card when disposing of it to prevent
the leakage of personal data.

Using an Externally Mounted Flash
(Sold Separately)
High-Power Flash HF-DC1
This flash is used to supplement the camera's built-in flash when
the subject is too far away for proper illumination. Use the following
procedures to affix the camera and High-Power Flash to the
supporting bracket.
Please read the instructions accompanying the flash along with this
explanation.
Tripod
Sockets
Bracket
(Comes with the flash)
The flash charge time will lengthen as the battery charge
gets weaker. Always set the power/mode switch to [OFF]
when you finish using the flash.
Be careful not to touch the flash window or sensor
windows with your fingers while the flash is in use.
The flash may fire if another flash is being used in close
proximity.
The High-Power Flash may not fire outdoors in daylight or
when there are no reflective items.
For continuous shooting, although the flash fires for the
first shot, it does not fire for subsequent shots.
Fasten the attachment screws securely so that they do not
loosen. Failure to do so may lead to the dropping of the
camera and flash resulting in damage to both.
Downloaded From camera-usermanual.com Canon Manuals
120
Before attaching the bracket to the flash, check that the
lithium battery (CR123A or DL123) is installed.
To illuminate the subjects properly, install the flash so that it
is up against the side of the camera and parallel with the
camera’s front panel.
A tripod can be used even when the flash is attached.
Batteries
Charge becomes Severely Limited
If the battery usage time has considerably diminished, wipe the
battery terminals well with a dry cloth. The terminals may be dirty
from fingerprints.
Usage in Cold Temperatures
Get a spare generic lithium battery (CR123A or DL123). You are
recommended to place the spare battery in your pocket to warm it
up before switching it for the battery in the flash.
Non-Use over Extended Periods
Leaving batteries in the High-Power Flash could allow the battery
fluid to leak, damaging the product. Remove the batteries from the
High-Power Flash and store them in a cool, dry place.
