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
This camera’s warranty is only effective in the country of sale. If a problem arises
while the camera is in use abroad, please convey it back to the country of sale
before proceeding with a warranty claim to a Canon Customer Support Help
Desk.
For Canon Customer Support contacts, please see the customer support
list supplied with your camera.
Camera Body Temperature
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.
Language Setting
Please see Setting the Display Language (p. 13) to change the language setting.

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. 107).

Battery Handling
Battery Charge
z The following icon and message will display.
Icons
Message
Sufficient battery charge.
Recharge the battery soon for extended use.
(blinking red) Low battery charge. Recharge the battery.
Change the
batteries
Battery is fully depleted and the camera can no
longer operate. Charge the battery immediately.
Battery Handling Precautions
z 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.
z 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.
z 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.
z Do not allow any metal objects 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.

Attach it the opposite
way to Fig. C.
z You are recommended to use it in the camera until it is
depleted 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 in the camera about once a year before returning it to
storage.
Charging the Battery
z Since this is a lithium-ion battery, you need not discharge it
before recharging.
z It takes approximately 2 hours 5 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.
z 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.
z If the performance of the battery diminishes substantially even
when it is fully charged, its life has been exceeded and it
should be replaced.

data on the card)
Writing/Erasing Impossible
Cautions When Handling
z Memory cards are high-precision electronic devices. Do not
bend them, apply force to them, or subject them to shocks or
vibration.
z Do not attempt to disassemble or alter the memory card.
z 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.
z Do not peel away the original label on the memory card or
cover it with another label or sticker.
z When writing on the memory card, do not use a pencil or ballpoint pen. Only use a soft point pen (e.g. felt-tip pen).
z 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
z Since some or all of the data recorded on the memory card
may be corrupted or erased by electrical noise, static
electricity, camera or card malfunction, making a backup copy
of important data is recommended.
Appendix
209
Formatting
z Please note that formatting (initializing) an memory card
erases all data, including protected images.
z 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.
z 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.
z Be careful when transferring or disposing of a memory card.
Formatting or erasing the data on a memory card merely
changes the file management information on the card and does
not ensure that its contents are completely deleted.
When disposing of a memory card, take precautions, such as
physically destroying the card, to prevent personal information
leaks.
