Formatting Memory Cards
Before you use a new memory card or one that has been formatted in other
devices, you should format the card with this camera. Formatting (initializing) a
memory card erases all data on the memory card. As you cannot retrieve the
erased data, exercise adequate caution before formatting the memory card.
Before formatting an Eye-Fi card (p. 179), be sure to install the software
contained on the card to a computer.
Display the menu.
 Press the n button.
Choose [Format].
 Move the zoom lever to choose the 3 tab.
 Press the op buttons to choose [Format],
then press the m button.
Choose [OK].
 Press the qr buttons to choose [OK], then
press the m button.
Format the memory card.
 Press the op buttons to choose [OK],
then press the m button.
 The memory card will be formatted.
22
Pressing the Shutter Button
Complete formatting.
 When formatting ends, [Memory card
formatting complete] will appear on the
screen.
 Press the m button.
Formatting or erasing data on a memory card merely changes the file
management information on the card and does not ensure its contents are
completely erased. Be careful when transferring or disposing of a memory
card. When disposing of a memory card, take precautions such as
physically destroying the card to prevent personal information leaks.
• The total capacity of the memory card displayed in the formatting screen
may be less than indicated on the memory card.
• Perform a low-level format (p. 167) of the memory card when the camera
does not operate properly, the recording/reading speed of a memory card
has dropped, when continuous shooting speed slows down, or when
movie recording stops suddenly.
Pressing the Shutter Button
To take images that are in focus, be sure to first press the shutter button
lightly (halfway) to focus, then press fully to shoot.
Press halfway (Press lightly to focus).
 Press lightly until the camera beeps twice
and AF frames appear where the camera

Press fully (Press fully to shoot).
 The camera plays the shutter sound and
takes the shot.
 Since the shot is being taken while the
shutter sound plays, be careful not to move
the camera.
23
Taking Pictures (Smart Auto)
Does the length of the shutter sound change?
• Since the time required to shoot differs depending on the scene you want to
take, the length of the shutter sound may change.
• If the camera or subject moves while the shutter sound is playing, the recorded
image may be blurry.
If you shoot without pressing the shutter button halfway, the image may not
be in focus.
Taking Pictures (Smart Auto)

let it automatically select the best settings for the scene and just shoot. The
camera can also detect and focus on faces, setting the color and brightness
to optimal levels.

Taking Pictures (Smart Auto)
What if...
• What if the color and brightness of the images do not turn out as
expected?
The scene icon (p. 187) that appears on the screen may not match the actual
scene. If this happens, try shooting in G mode (p. 83).
• What if white and gray frames appear when you point the camera toward
a subject?
A white frame appears on the face or subject that the camera detected as the
main subject, while gray frames appear on other detected faces. The frames will
follow the subjects within a certain range.
If the subject moves, however, the gray frames will disappear, leaving only the
white frame.
• What if a frame does not appear on the subject you want to shoot?
The subject may not be detected, and frames may appear on the background.
If this happens, try shooting in G mode (p. 83).
• What if a blue frame appears when you press the shutter button halfway?
A blue frame appears when a moving subject is detected; the focus and
exposure will continuously adjust (Servo AF).
• What if a flashing
appears?
Attach the camera to a tripod so that the camera does not move and blur the image.
• What if the camera does not play any sounds?
Pressing the p button while turning on the camera power will turn off all sounds.
To turn the sounds on, press the n button to choose [Mute] from the 3
tab, then press the qr buttons to choose [Off].
• What if the image comes out dark even if the flash fired when shooting?
The subject is too far away for the flash to reach. The effective flash range is
approximately 30 cm – 4.0 m (12 in. – 13 ft.) from the end of the lens at
maximum wide angle (j), and approximately 50 cm – 2.0 m (1.6 – 6.6 ft.) from
the end of the lens at maximum telephoto (i).
• What if the camera beeps once when the shutter button is pressed
halfway?
Your subject may be too close. When the camera is at maximum wide angle
(j), move about 3 cm (1.2 in.) or more away from your subject and shoot.
Move about 50 cm (1.6 ft.) or more away when the camera is at maximum
telephoto (i).
• What if the lamp lights when the shutter button is pressed halfway?
To reduce red-eye and to assist in focusing, the lamp may light when shooting
in dark areas.
• What if the h icon blinks when you try to shoot?
The flash is charging. You can shoot when recharging ends.

Using an Eye-Fi Card
Before using an Eye-Fi card, be sure to check whether Eye-Fi card use is
authorized in the country or territory of use (p. 16).
When you put a prepared Eye-Fi card into the camera, you can automatically
transfer your images wirelessly to a computer, or upload them to a web
service.
Image transfer is a function of the Eye-Fi card. For details on how to setup
and use the card, and concerning problems transferring images, please refer
to the Eye-Fi card user guide, or contact the manufacturer.
Please keep the following things in mind when using an Eye-Fi card.
• Even if you set [Eye-Fi trans.] to [Disable] (p. 180), the Eye-Fi card may transmit
radio waves. Be sure to remove the Eye-Fi card from the camera before
entering areas that prevent unauthorized transmission of radio waves, such as
hospitals and airplanes.
• If you have trouble transferring images, check the card or computer settings.
For details, refer to the user guide supplied with the card.
• Depending on the connection status of the wireless network, it may take time to
transfer images, or image transfer may be interrupted.
• Due to its transfer function, the Eye-Fi card may become hot.
• Battery consumption will be quicker than in normal use.
• Camera operations will be slower than in normal use. This may be resolved by
setting [Eye-Fi trans.] to [Disable].

List of Messages That Appear on the Screen
Invalid selection range
• When choosing the selection range (pp. 136, 139, 144, 162), you tried to choose a
starting image that was after the last image or you tried to choose an ending image that
was before the starting image.
Exceeded selection limit

(p. 161).

My Category (p. 142) or Print Settings (p. 159).
Communication error
• Images could not be transferred to the computer or printed due to the large amount of
images (approx. 1000) stored on the memory card. Use a commercially available USB
card reader to transfer the images. Insert the memory card into the printer’s card slot to
print.
Naming error!
• The folder or image could not be created because there is an image with the same file
name as the folder or image that the camera is attempting to create, or the highest
possible file number has already been reached. In the 3 menu, change [File
Numbering] to [Auto Reset] (p. 169) or format the memory card (p. 22).

with excessive dust or sand in the air.
• If this error message continues to appear, contact a Canon Customer Support Help
Desk as there may be a problem with the lens.
A camera error was detected (Error number)
• If an error code appears directly after taking a picture, the shot may not have been
recorded. Check the image in Playback mode.
• If this error code reappears, note the Error number (Exx) and contact a Canon
Customer Support Help Desk as there may be a problem with the camera.
File Error
• Photos from other cameras or images that have been altered using computer software
may not be printable.
Print error

Handling Precautions
• This camera is a high-precision electronic device. Do not drop it or subject
it to strong impacts.
• Never place the camera close to magnets, motors or other devices that
generate strong electromagnetic fields. Exposure to strong magnetic fields
may cause malfunctions or corrupt image data.
• If water droplets or dirt become stuck on the camera or screen, wipe with
a dry soft cloth or eyeglass wiper. Do not rub or apply force.
• Never use cleaners containing organic solvents to wipe the camera or
screen.
• Use a commercially available blower brush to remove dust from the lens.
For stubborn dirt contact a Canon Customer Support Help Desk as listed
in your Warranty System Booklet.
• When you move the camera rapidly from cold to hot temperatures,
condensation may form on the internal or external surfaces of the camera.
To avoid condensation, put the camera in an airtight, resealable plastic bag
and let it adjust to temperature changes slowly before removing it from the
bag.
• If condensation has formed on the camera, stop using it immediately, as
continued use may damage the camera. Remove the battery and memory
card, and wait until the moisture has completely evaporated before
resuming use.
