a battery for long periods of time (about a year) without
its life span or affect its performance.
The battery charger can also be used when abroad.
The charger can be used in regions that have 100 - 240 V (50/6g Hz) AC power.
If the plug does not fit the outlet, use a commercially available plug adapter. Do
not use electrical transformers for foreign travel as they will cause damage.
The battery may develop a bulge.
This is a normal characteristic of the battery and does not indicate a problem.
However, if the battery bulges to the point where it will no longer fit into the
camera, please contact a Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
If the battery is quickly depleted even after charging, it has reached the end of
its life span. Purchase a new battery.

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.

The scene icon (p. 187) that appears on the screen may not match the actual
scene, if this happens, try shooting in p 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 p mode (p. 83).

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 ([]),

The values in the table are measured according to Canon standards and may change
depending on the subject, memory card and camera settings.
The values in the table are based on 4:3 aspect ratio. If the aspect ratio is changed
(p. 90), more images can be shot because the data size per image will be smaller than
with 4:3 images. However, since M2 16:9 images have a setting of 1920 x 1080 pixels,
their data size will be larger than 4:3 images.

Lowering the ISO speed results in sharper images, but there may be an
increased chance of image blurring in certain shooting conditions.
Raising the ISO speed results in a faster shutter speed, reducing image blurring
and letting the flash reach greater distances to the subject. The images,
however, will appear coarse.

The camera can detect areas in the scene, such as faces or backgrounds,
that are too bright or dark and automatically
