Indicator
16 Preparing the Camera
Connect the DC plug of the compact
power adapter to the camera’s DC IN
terminal.
• The indicator beside the viewfinder will flash
orange while the battery pack is charging and
change to steady orange when it is
approximately 90% charged, which is adequate
for use. If it is charged for approximately 2 more
hours, it will become fully charged and the
indicator will switch to green.
• After charging the battery, remove it from the camera if the camera will not be used.
• If the main dial is set to any position other than
while charging, the battery
pack will stop charging and the household electrical current will power the
camera.
• This is a lithium ion battery pack so there is no need to completely use or
discharge it before recharging. It can be charged at any charge state.
• It takes approximately 80 minutes to bring a fully discharged battery pack to a
charge state of approximately 90% (adequate charge for use). It takes
approximately 2 more hours to charge it fully (based on standard Canon testing
criteria). Charge it within a temperature range of 5 to 40º C (41 to 104º F).
• Charging times will vary according to the surrounding humidity and battery pack
charge state.
• Battery Pack BP-512 (optional) can also be used in this camera.
Battery Pack Handling Precautions
• Keep the battery pack and camera terminals (
) clean at all times. Dirty
terminals may cause a poor contact between the battery pack and camera. Polish the
terminals with a tissue or a dry cloth before charging or using the battery pack.
• Do not cover the compact power adapter with anything, such as a tablecloth, cushion
or blanket, when it is charging. Heat will build up internally and possibly lead to fire.
• Do not charge batteries other than Battery Pack BP-511 or Battery Pack BP-512 with
the supplied equipment. It could damage the camera.
• The battery pack continues to discharge a small amount when left in the camera even
with the power turned off. This shortens the battery life. Remove it from the camera,
attach the supplied terminal adapter and store it at room temperature (30ºC/86ºF
or less) in a dry place. Charge it before use.
• Even charged battery packs continue to discharge naturally. You are advised to charge
the battery on the day of use, or one day before, to ensure a full charge. Since storing a
fully charged battery pack for long periods of time (about 1 year) can shorten its
lifecycle or affect performance, you are recommended to use the battery pack in the
camera until the LB symbol displays and to store it at room temperature (30º C/86º F or
less). If you do not use the battery pack for long periods of time, charge it fully and
discharge it fully in the camera at least once a year before returning it to storage.
• The camera consumes the battery charge when the power is on even when a function
is not being used. To conserve the battery charge, be particularly attentive in turning the
power off.
• Although the battery pack’s maximum operating range is 0 to 40º C (32 to 104º F), the
optimal range is 10 to 30º C (50 to 86º F). At cold temperatures, such as those
experienced on ski hills, performance will temporarily decline, reducing the usable time
before recharging.
• If the usable time of a battery pack diminishes substantially even when fully charged, it
should be replaced.
Preparing the Camera 17
Installing the Battery Pack
Install Battery Pack BP-511 (supplied) into the camera as follows. Use a household
power source to power the camera for extended periods (p. 20).

3 Insert the battery pack as shown.
4 Close the battery cover.
Terminals
• Charge the battery pack before using it the first time (p. 16).
• The flashing green indicator signals that the CF card is being written to, read, or
erased, or that data is being sent to the computer. Never open the battery cover or
remove the battery while it is flashing.
• Remove the battery pack when the camera is not in use.
Battery Status Symbols
• The following icons indicate the battery status. These icons will not appear while
the camera is plugged into a household power source.

CF Card Handling Precautions
• CF cards are high-precision electronic devices. Do not bend, force, or subject
them to shocks or vibration.
• Do not attempt to disassemble or alter a CF card.
• Moving a CF card rapidly between temperature extremes may cause condensation
to form in the card, leading to potential malfunctions. To avoid condensation
formation, place the CF card in a sealed plastic bag before moving it into a
different temperature zone and allow it to adjust slowly to the new temperature. If
condensation forms on the CF card, put it aside until the water droplets have
evaporated completely.
• Place the CF card in the supplied case for storage.
• Do not use or store CF cards in the following types of locations.
- Locations subject to dust or sand
- Locations subject to high humidity and high temperatures
Microdrives are a recording medium with a hard disk. Their merits are a large
capacity and a low price per megabite of capacity. However, they are relatively
more susceptible to vibrations and shocks than CF cards, which use durable flash
memories. Please be careful, therefore, not to subject the camera to vibrations or
shocks when using a microdrive, especially while recording or replaying.

• Compose images so that the autofocus
crosshairs in the center of the viewfinder is
aimed directly at the subject.
• You can adjust the viewfinder with the diopter
adjustment lever to adapt to your vision so that
the subject appears in crisp focus.
• The viewfinder has a field of vision of
approximately 84%.
The Parallax Phenomenon
Please note that the actual image may differ from the image seen in the optical
viewfinder due to the physical separation between the viewfinder and lens. This is
called the parallax phenomenon and is more noticeable the closer the subject is to
the lens. In some cases, portions of images shot up close that appear in the
viewfinder will not appear in the recorded image. You are recommended to use
the LCD monitor to shoot images up close.
Shooting with an Off-Center AF Frame Selected
You should always use the LCD monitor to compose images when you have
selected an off-center AF frame (p. 68).

• The fastest shutter speed for flash synchronization is 1/250 second. The camera
automatically resets the shutter speed to 1/250 second if a faster speed is selected.
• The flash may take up to approximately 10 seconds to charge in some cases.
Actual times will vary according to usage and the battery charge.
• The flash intensity is automatically adjusted except in the mode.
• In the mode, the flash fires at full intensity.
• The flash setting is saved when the camera is turned off in the , ,
and
shooting modes.
• The flash will fire twice. A pre-flash will fire and will be followed by the main flash.
The pre-flash is used by the camera to obtain the subject’s exposure data so that
the main flash can be set to the optimal intensity for the shot.
About the Red-Eye Reduction Function
• Light reflecting back from eyes can make them appear red when the flash is used
in dark areas. Under these conditions, use the red-eye reduction mode. For this
mode to be effective, the subject must be looking right at the red-eye reduction
lamp. Try asking them to look directly at the lamp. Even better results can be
obtained by shooting with the lens set to the wide angle, increasing the lighting in
indoor settings or approaching closer to the subject.

Shooting - Selecting Particular Effects 59
Changing the File Format
The recording file format can be switched to the RAW format. With the standard
JPEG file format, the camera processes images after capturing them to produce
optimal results. This format compresses images so that more can be stored on a
single CF card. However, the compression is irreversible, meaning that the original
image data cannot be recovered after processing. In contrast, the RAW format
records the image data as captured by the camera’s CCD without further
processing. RAW images are compressed, but the compression is reversible* so that
a high-quality image can be obtained from the decompressed file without any loss
of image quality. In addition, although a RAW file is larger than an equivalent JPEG
file, it is still only approximately one-quarter the size** of an uncompressed RGB
TIFF format file, making it relatively compact.
With standard uncompressed file formats, such as RGB TIFF, images are processed
in the camera and require further processing by retouching software to adjust the
image parameters, which reduces image quality. With the RAW format, however,
the original data can be used in special software* to adjust the image parameters
(white balance, contrast, sharpness and saturation) making it possible to maintain
the image quality while making changes. The resolution (2272 x 1704) and
compression settings cannot be adjusted for these images.
* The bundled software can be used to open or adjust the parameters of images recorded in the RAW file format.
Please consult the Software Starter Guide for details.

Setting the Shutter Speed
When you set the shutter speed in the shutter speed-priority AE mode, the camera
automatically selects an aperture setting to match the brightness. Faster shutter
speeds allow you to catch an instantaneous image of a moving subject while slower
speeds create a flowing effect and allow you to shoot without a flash in dark areas.

• If the aperture value is flashing in the display panel or shown in
red in the LCD monitor, the image is under- or overexposed
(insufficient light). Adjust the shutter speed using the
or
arrow on the omni selector until the flashing stops or the
aperture value display turns to white.
• The nature of CCD image sensors is such that noise in the recorded image
increases at slow 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. Nevertheless, a certain amount of
processing time may be required before the next image can be shot.
• The aperture presets to F8.0 when the shutter speed is set to 1/1000 second.
• Please note that camera shake becomes a factor at low shutter speeds. If the
camera shake warning appears in the center of the LCD monitor, secure the
camera to a tripod to shoot.
Shutter Speed Display
The shutter speeds from 1000 to 4 in the display are actually the denominator of a
fraction of a second. For example, 160 indicates a speed of 1/160 second. For
slower speeds, quote marks indicate the decimal place, so that 0"3 indicates 0.3
second and 2" indicates 2 seconds.

Setting the Aperture
When you set the aperture in the aperture-priority AE mode, the camera
automatically selects a shutter speed to match the brightness. Selecting a lower
aperture value (opening the aperture) allows you to fade the background and
create a beautiful portrait. A higher aperture value (closing it) brings the entire
range from foreground to background into focus. The larger the aperture value,

Replacing the Date Battery
If the Set Date / Time menu appears when you turn on the camera power, the
date battery charge is low and the date and time settings have been lost. Please
replace the battery with a generic CR2016 lithium coin battery with the following
procedures.
Please note that the first date battery may appear to expire relatively quickly after you
purchase the camera. This is because it is installed in the camera at the point of
manufacture, not when you make the purchase.
• Be particularly careful to keep the date batteries out of the reach of children. Seek
medical assistance immediately if a child swallows a battery since corrosive battery
fluids could damage the stomach or intestinal wall.
