Preliminary Notes and Legal Information
• Take and review some test shots initially to make sure the images were
recorded 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 result in the failure of an image to be recorded or to be
recorded in a way that is machine readable.
• Images recorded by the camera are intended for personal use. Refrain
from unauthorized recording that infringes on copyright law, and note that
even for personal use, photography may contravene copyright or other
legal rights at some performances or exhibitions, or in some commercial
settings.
• The camera warranty is valid only in the area of purchase. In case of
camera problems while abroad, return to the area of purchase before
contacting a Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
• Although the LCD monitor is produced under extremely high-precision
manufacturing conditions and more than 99.99% of the pixels meet
design specifications, in rare cases some pixels may be defective or may
appear as red or black dots. This does not indicate camera damage or
affect recorded images.
• The LCD monitor may be covered with a thin plastic film for protection
against scratches during shipment. If covered, remove the film before
using the camera.
• When the camera is used over an extended period, it may become warm.
This does not indicate damage.

• Do not allow liquids or foreign objects to enter the camera.
This could result in electrical shock or fire.
If liquids or foreign objects come into contact with the camera interior,
immediately turn the camera off and remove the battery pack/batteries.
If the battery charger (for cameras that use one) becomes wet, unplug
it from the outlet and consult your camera retailer or a Canon Customer
Support Help Desk.
• Do not look through the viewfinder (if your model has one) at bright
light sources, such as the sun on a clear day.
This could damage your eyesight.
• Use only the recommended battery pack/batteries.
• Do not place the battery pack/batteries near or in direct flame.
• If your camera uses a battery charger, note the following
precautions.
-Unplug the power cord periodically, and using a dry cloth, wipe
away any dust and dirt that has collected on the plug, the exterior
of the power outlet, and the surrounding area.
-Do not handle the power cord with wet hands.
-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 not fully plugged into the
outlet.
-Do not allow dirt or metal objects (such as pins or keys) to contact
the terminals or plug.
The battery pack/batteries may explode or leak, resulting in electrical shock
or fire. This could cause injury and damage the surroundings. In the event
that a battery pack leaks and the battery electrolyte contacts eyes, mouth,
skin or clothing, immediately flush with water.
• Turn the camera off in places where camera use is prohibited.
The electromagnetic waves emitted by the camera may interfere with the
operation of electronic instruments and other devices. Exercise adequate
caution when using the camera in places where use of electronic devices is
restricted, such as inside airplanes and medical facilities.
Cover
Caution
Denotes the possibility of injury.
• When holding the camera by the strap, be careful not to bang it,
subject it to strong impacts or shocks, or let it get caught on other
objects.
• Be careful not to bump or push strongly on the lens.
This could lead to injury or damage the camera.
• Be careful not to subject the screen to strong impacts.
If the screen cracks, injury may result from the broken fragments.
• When using the flash, be careful not to cover it with your fingers or
clothing.
This could result in burns or damage to the flash.
• Avoid using, placing or storing the product in the following places:
-Places subject to direct sunlight
-Places subject to temperatures above 40 °C (104 °F)
-Humid or dusty areas
These could cause leakage, overheating or an explosion of the battery
pack/batteries, resulting in electrical shock, fire, burns or other injuries.
High temperatures may deform the product.
• The slideshow transition effects may cause discomfort when viewed
for prolonged periods.
• When using optional lenses, lens filters, or filter adapters (if
applicable), be sure to attach these accessories firmly.
If the lens becomes loose and falls off, it may crack, and the shards of glass
may lead to cuts.

• On cameras that raise and lower the flash automatically, make sure
your finger is out of the way when the flash is lowered, to avoid
pinching it.
This could result in injury.

Caution
Denotes the possibility of damage to the equipment.
• Do not aim the camera at bright light sources (such as the sun on a
clear day).
Doing so may damage the image sensor.
• When using the camera on a beach or at a windy location, be careful
not to allow dust or sand to enter the camera.
• On cameras that raise and lower the flash automatically, do not push
the flash down or pry it open.
This may cause the product to malfunction.
• In regular use, small amounts of smoke may be emitted from the
flash.
This is due to the high intensity of the flash burning dust and foreign
materials stuck to the front of the unit. Please use a cotton swab to remove
dirt, dust or other foreign matter from the flash to prevent heat build-up and
damage to the unit.
• Remove and store the battery pack/batteries when you are not using
the camera.
If the battery pack or batteries are left inside the camera, damage caused
by leakage may occur.
• Before you discard the battery pack/batteries, cover the terminals
with tape or other insulators.
Contacting other metal materials may lead to fire or explosions.
• If your camera is used with a battery charger, keep the charger
unplugged when not in use. When charging the battery pack, do not
leave it covered with a cloth or put other objects on it.
Leaving the unit plugged in for a long period of time may cause it to
overheat and distort, resulting in fire.
• If your camera uses multiple batteries, do not use batteries that have
different levels of charge together, do not use old and new batteries
together, and do not insert the batteries with the + and – terminals
reversed.
This may cause the product to malfunction.
• Do not sit down with the camera in your pocket.
Doing so may cause malfunctions or damage the screen.
• When putting the camera in your bag, ensure that hard objects do
not come into contact with the screen. Also close the screen (so that
it faces the camera body), if your camera has a screen that closes.
• Do not attach any hard objects to the camera.
Doing so may cause malfunctions or damage the screen.

3 Insert the battery pack.
• To protect the battery pack and keep it in optimal condition, do not
charge it continuously for more than 24 hours.
• For battery chargers that use a power cord, do not attach the
charger or cord to other objects. Doing so could result in malfunction
or damage to the product.
• For details on charging time and the number of shots and recording time
possible with a fully charged battery pack, see “Number of Shots/Recording
Time, Playback Time” (= 129).
• Charged battery packs gradually lose their charge, even when they are not
used. Charge the battery pack on (or immediately before) the day of use.
• The charger can be used in areas with 100 – 240 V AC power (50/60 Hz). For
power outlets in a different format, use a commercially available adapter for
the plug. Never use an electrical transformer designed for traveling, which may
damage the battery pack.

entering hospitals, aircraft, or other areas where transmission is
prohibited.
-When troubleshooting image transfer issues, check the card and
computer settings. For details, refer to the card’s user manual.
-Poor Eye-Fi connections may cause image transfer to take a long
time, and transfer may be interrupted in some cases.
-Eye-Fi cards may become hot, due to their transfer functions.
-Battery power will be consumed faster than in normal use.
-Camera operation may become sluggish. To resolve this, try

Troubleshooting
If you think there is a problem with the camera, first check the following.
If the items below do not solve your problem, contact a Canon Customer
Support Help Desk.
Power
Nothing happens when the power button is pressed.
• Confirm that the battery pack is charged (= 12).
• Confirm that the battery pack is inserted facing the correct way (= 13).
• Confirm that the memory card/battery cover is fully closed (= 13).
• Dirty battery terminals reduce battery performance. Try cleaning the terminals with a
cotton swab and reinserting the battery pack a few times.
The battery pack runs out of power quickly.
Cover
Strange display on the screen under low light (= 23).
Strange display on the screen when shooting.
Before Use
Note that the following display problems are not recorded in still images but are
recorded in movies.
• The screen may darken under bright light.
Common Camera
Operations
• The screen may flicker under fluorescent or LED lighting.
• Purplish banding may appear on the screen if you compose a shot that includes a
bright light source.
No date stamp is added to images.
• Configure the [Date Stamp
] setting (= 14). Note that date stamps are not
added to images automatically, merely because you have configured the [Date/Time]
setting (= 35).
• Date stamps are not added in shooting modes (= 126) in which this setting cannot
be configured (= 35).
• Battery performance decreases at low temperatures. Try warming the battery pack a
little by putting it in your pocket, for example, ensuring that the terminals do not touch
any metal objects.
[h] flashes on the screen when the shutter button is pressed, and
shooting is not possible (= 30).
• If these measures do not help and the battery pack still runs out of power soon after
charging, it has reached the end of its life. Purchase a new battery pack.
[
• Set [IS Mode] to [Continuous] (= 64).
The lens is not retracted.
• Raise the flash and set the flash mode to [h] (= 62).
• Do not open the memory card/battery cover while the camera is on. Close the cover,
turn the camera on, and then turn it off again (= 13).
The battery pack is swollen.
] is displayed when the shutter button is pressed halfway (= 30).
• Increase the ISO speed (= 53).
• Mount the camera on a tripod or take other measures to keep it still. In this case, you
should set [IS Mode] to [Off] (= 64).
• Battery swelling is normal and does not pose any safety concerns. However, if
battery swelling prevents the battery pack from fitting in the camera, contact a Canon
Customer Support Help Desk.
Shots are out of focus.
Display on a TV
• Make sure subjects are within focusing range (= 130).
Camera images look distorted or not displayed on a TV (= 98).
Shooting
• Press the shutter button halfway to focus on subjects before pressing it all the way
down to shoot (= 22).

Cover
No AF frames are displayed and the camera does not focus when the
shutter button is pressed halfway.
Subjects are affected by red-eye (= 37).
• To have AF frames displayed and the camera focus correctly, try composing the
shot with higher-contrast subject areas centered before you press the shutter button
halfway. Otherwise, try pressing the shutter button halfway repeatedly.
• Set [Red-Eye Lamp] to [On] (= 40) to activate the red-eye reduction lamp
(= 4) in flash shots. Note that while the red-eye reduction lamp is on (for about
one second), it is not possible to shoot, because the lamp is counteracting red-eye.
For best results, have subjects look at the red-eye reduction lamp. Also try increasing
the lighting in indoor scenes and shooting at closer range.
Subjects in shots look too dark.
• Edit images using red-eye correction (= 84).
• Raise the flash and set the flash mode to [h] (= 62).
• Adjust brightness by using exposure compensation (= 52).
Recording to the memory card takes too long, or continuous shooting
is slower.
• Adjust contrast by using i-Contrast (= 54, 84).
• Use the camera to perform low-level formatting of the memory card (= 92).
• Use AE lock or spot metering (= 52, 53).
Shooting settings or FUNC. menu settings are not available.
Subjects look too bright, highlights are washed-out.
• Lower the flash and set the flash mode to [!] (= 28).
• Adjust brightness by using exposure compensation (= 52).
• Use AE lock or spot metering (= 52, 53).
• Reduce the lighting on subjects.
Shots look too dark despite the flash firing (= 30).
• Shoot within flash range (= 129).
• Adjust brightness by using flash exposure compensation or changing the flash output
level (= 63, 68).
• Increase the ISO speed (= 53).
Subjects in flash shots look too bright, highlights are washed-out.
• Shoot within flash range (= 129).
• Lower the flash and set the flash mode to [!] (= 28).
• Available setting items vary by shooting mode. Refer to “Functions Available in Each
Shooting Mode”, “FUNC. Menu”, and “Shooting Tab Menu” (= 120 – 126).
Shooting Movies
The elapsed time shown is incorrect, or recording is interrupted.
• Use the camera to format the memory card, or switch to a card that supports highspeed recording. Note that even if the elapsed time display is incorrect, the length of
movies on the memory card corresponds to the actual recording time (= 91, 129).
[
] is displayed and shooting stops automatically.
The camera’s internal memory buffer filled up as the camera could not record to the
memory card quickly enough. Try one of the following measures.
• Use the camera to perform low-level formatting of the memory card (= 92).
• Lower the image quality (= 37).
• Switch to a memory card that supports high-speed recording (= 129).
• Adjust brightness by using flash exposure compensation or changing the flash output
level (= 63, 68).
Zooming is not possible.
White dots or similar image artifacts appear in flash shots.

Invalid selection range
• When specifying a range for image selection (= 76, 79, 108), you attempted to
choose an initial image that was after the final image, or vice-versa.
Exceeded selection limit
• More than 998 images were selected for Print List (= 107) or Photobook Set-up

Communication error
• An excessive amount of images (approx. 1,000) on the memory card prevented printing
or image transfer to a computer. To transfer the images, use a commercially available
USB card reader. To print, insert the memory card directly into the printer card slot.
Naming error!
• The folder could not be created or images could not be recorded, because the highest
supported folder number (999) for storing images on the card has been reached and
the highest supported image number (9999) for images in folders has been reached.

Handling Precautions
• The camera is a high-precision electronic device. Avoid dropping it or
subjecting it to strong impact.
• Never bring the camera near magnets, motors, or other devices that
generate strong electromagnetic fields, which may cause malfunction or
erase image data.
• If water droplets or dirt adheres to the camera or screen, wipe with a dry
soft cloth, such as an eyeglass cloth. Do not rub hard or apply force.
• Never use cleaners containing organic solvents to clean the camera or
screen.
• Use a blower brush to remove dust from the lens. If cleaning is difficult,
contact a Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
• To prevent condensation from forming on the camera after sudden
temperature changes (when the camera is transferred from cold to warm
environments), put the camera in an airtight, resealable plastic bag and
let it gradually adjust to the temperature before removing it from the bag.
• If condensation does form on the camera, stop using it immediately.
Continuing to use the camera in this state may damage it. Remove
the battery pack and memory card, and wait until the moisture has
evaporated before resuming use.
• Before long-term battery storage, use up the battery pack’s remaining
charge, remove it from the camera, and store it in a plastic bag or similar
container. Storing a partially charged battery pack over extended periods
(about a year) may shorten its life or affect performance.

•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
(= 36), more images can be shot because the data size per image will be smaller
than with 4:3 images. However, since [ ] 16:9 images have a setting of 1920 x 1080
pixels, their data size will be larger than 4:3 images.

•The values in the table are measured according to Canon standards and may change
depending on the subject, memory card and camera settings.
•Recording will automatically stop when the clip file size reaches 4 GB, or when the
