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
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.
5
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 (p. 94).
Language Setting
Please see the Basic Guide (p. 4) to change the language setting.

z Do not handle the power cord if your hands are wet.
Continued use of the equipment may result in fire or electrical
shock.
7
Battery
z Do not place the battery near a heat source or expose it to
direct flame or heat.
z The battery should not be immersed in water or sea water.
z Do not attempt to disassemble, alter or apply heat to the
battery.
z Avoid dropping or subjecting the battery to severe impacts
that could damage the casing.
z Use only recommended battery and accessories.
Use of battery not expressly recommended for this equipment
may cause explosions or leaks, resulting in fire, injury and
damage to the surroundings. In the event that a battery leaks and
the eyes, mouth, skin or clothing contact these substances,
immediately flush with water and seek medical assistance.
z Disconnect the battery charger and compact power adapter
from both the camera and the power outlet after recharging
or when they are not in use to avoid fire and other hazards.
z Do not place anything, such as tablecloths, carpets,
bedding or cushions, on top of the battery charger while it
is charging.
Continued use over a long period may cause the units to overheat
and distort, resulting in fire.
z Use only the specified battery charger to charge the battery.
z The battery charger and compact power adapter are
designed for exclusive use with your camera. Do not use it
with other products or batteries.
There is a risk of overheating and distortion which could result in
fire or electrical shock.
z Before you discard a battery, cover the terminals with tape
or other insulators to prevent direct contact with other
objects.
Contact with the metallic components of other materials in waste
containers may lead to fire or explosions.
8
Others
z Do not trigger the flash in close proximity to human or
animal eyes. Exposure to the intense light produced by the
flash may damage eyesight.
In particular, remain at least one meter (39 inches) away from
infants when using the flash.
z Keep objects that are sensitive to magnetic fields (such as
credit cards) away from the speaker of the camera.
Such items may lose data or stop working.
Cautions
Equipment
z Be careful not to bang the camera or subject it to strong
impacts or shocks that could lead to injury or damage the
equipment when wearing or holding it by the strap.
z Do not store the equipment in humid or dusty areas.
z Do not allow metal objects (such as pins or keys) or dirt to
contact the charger terminals or plug.
Such conditions could lead to fire, electrical shock or other
damage.
z Avoid using, placing or storing the equipment in places
subject to strong sunlight or high temperatures, such as the
dashboard or trunk (boot) of a car.
z Do not use the equipment in a manner that exceeds the
rated capacity of the electrical outlet or wiring accessories.
Do not use if the power cord or plug are damaged, or if not
fully plugged into the outlet.
z Do not use in locations with poor ventilation.
The above-mentioned can cause leakage, overheating or
explosion, resulting in fire, burns or other injuries. High
temperatures may also cause deformation of the casing.
z When not using the camera for extended periods of time,
remove the battery from the camera or battery charger and
store the equipment in a safe place.
The battery can run down.
9
Equipment
z Do not connect compact power adapters or battery
chargers to devices such as electrical transformers for
foreign travel because it may lead to malfunctions,
excessive heat generation, fire, electric shock or injury.
Flash
z Do not operate the flash with dirt, dust or other items stuck
to the surface of the flash.
z Be careful not to cover the flash with your fingers or
clothing when shooting.
The flash may be damaged and emit smoke or noise. The
resulting heat build-up could damage the flash.
z Do not touch the surface of the flash after taking several
pictures in rapid succession.
Doing so could result in burns.
10
Preventing Malfunctions
Avoid Strong Magnetic Fields
z Never place the camera in close proximity to electric motors
or other equipment generating strong electromagnetic
fields.
Exposure to strong magnetic fields may cause malfunctions or
corrupt image data.
Avoid Condensation Related Problems
z When moving the equipment rapidly between hot and cold
temperatures, you can avoid condensation by placing the
equipment in an airtight, resealable plastic bag and letting it
adjust to temperature changes slowly before removing it
from the bag.
Moving the equipment rapidly between hot and cold temperatures
may cause condensation (water droplets) to form on its external
and internal surfaces.
If Condensation Forms Inside the Camera
z Stop using the camera immediately.
Continued use may damage the equipment. Remove the memory
card and battery or compact power adapter from the camera and
wait until the moisture evaporates completely before resuming

The histogram is a graph that allows you to judge 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. 54).

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
Appendix
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
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.
111
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
is visible
Spent Battery
Attach it the
opposite way to
Fig. C.
z 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
z Since this is a lithium-ion battery, you need not completely
discharge it before recharging.
z It takes approximately 2 hours 5 minutes to fully charge the
battery from a fully discharged 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.

Cautions When Handling
Appendix
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
ball-point 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, or camera or card malfunction, making a backup
copy of important data is recommended.
113
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.
114
Using an AC Adapter Kit (Sold Separately)
It is best to power the camera with AC Adapter Kit ACK-DC30 (sold
separately) when you are using it for long periods of time or
connecting it to a computer.
Turn the camera power off before connecting or
disconnecting the AC adapter.

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)
z 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.
z Be careful not to touch the flash window or sensor
windows with your fingers while the flash is in use.
z The flash may fire if another flash is being used in close
proximity.
z The High-Power Flash may not fire outdoors in daylight or
when there are no reflective items.
z For continuous shooting, although the flash fires for the
first shot, it does not fire for subsequent shots.
z 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.
116
z Before attaching the bracket to the flash, check that the
lithium battery (CR123A or DL123) is installed.
z 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.
z A tripod can be used even when the flash is attached.
Batteries
zCharge 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.
zUsage in Cold Temperatures (Less than 0°C/32°F)
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.
zNon-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.
