●● Be sure to also check the guides included with any separately sold
accessories you use.
Warning
Denotes the possibility of serious injury or death.
●● Do not trigger the flash in close proximity to people’s eyes.
Exposure to the intense light produced by the flash could damage
eyesight. In particular, remain at least 1 meter (3.3 feet) away from infants
when using the flash.
●● Store this equipment out of the reach of children and infants.
A strap wound around a child’s neck may result in asphyxiation.
If your product uses a power cord, mistakenly winding the cord around a
child’s neck may result in asphyxiation.
●● Use only recommended power sources.
●● Do not disassemble, alter, or apply heat to the product.
●● Do not peel off the label, if the battery pack has one.

●● Avoid dropping or subjecting the product to severe impacts.
●● Do not touch the interior of the product if it is broken, such as when
dropped.
●● Stop using the product immediately if it emits smoke or a strange
smell, or otherwise behaves abnormally.
●● Do not use organic solvents such as alcohol, benzine, or thinner to
clean the product.
●● Avoid contact with liquid, and do not allow liquid or foreign objects
inside.
12
This could result in electrical shock or fire.
If the product gets wet, or if liquid or foreign objects get inside, remove the
battery pack/batteries or unplug immediately.
●● Do not look through the viewfinder (if your model has one) at intense
light sources, such as the sun on a clear day or an intense artificial
light source.
This could damage your eyesight.
●● Do not allow the camera to maintain contact with skin for extended
periods.
Even if the camera does not feel hot, this may cause low-temperature
burns, manifested in redness of the skin or blistering. Use a tripod in hot
places, or if you have poor circulation or insensitive skin.
Caution
●● When carrying the product by the strap, be careful not to bang it,
subject it to strong impacts or shocks, or let it get caught on other
objects.
●● Use only the recommended battery pack/batteries.
●● Be careful not to bump or push strongly on the lens.
This could lead to injury or damage the camera.
●● If the product uses a battery charger, note the following precautions.
-- Remove the plug 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 insert or remove the plug 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 plug is damaged or not fully inserted in the outlet.
-- Do not allow dust or metal objects (such as pins or keys) to contact
the terminals or plug.
-- Do not cut, damage, alter, or place heavy items on the power cord, if
your product uses one.
This could result in electrical shock or fire.
●● 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 product in places where use of electronic devices
is restricted, such as inside airplanes and medical facilities.

●● Do not touch the product during thunderstorms if it is plugged in.
This could result in electrical shock or fire. Immediately stop using the
product and distance yourself from it.
●● Do not place the battery pack/batteries near or in direct flame.

electrical shock, fire, or injuries. If leaking battery electrolyte comes into
contact with eyes, mouth, skin, or clothing, immediately flush with water.
Before Use
●● Be careful not to subject the screen to strong impacts.
If the screen cracks, injury may result from the broken fragments.

using cards or resolving transfer problems.
●● When using an Eye-Fi card, keep the following points in mind.
-- Cards may continue to transmit radio waves even when [EyeFi trans.] is set to [Disable] (= 118). Remove the Eye-Fi
card before 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.

Confirm that the battery pack is charged (= 16).
Confirm that the battery pack is inserted facing the correct way (= 17).
Confirm that the memory card/battery cover is fully closed (= 17).
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.
●● 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.
●● Dirty battery terminals reduce battery performance. Try cleaning the terminals
with a cotton swab and reinserting the battery pack a few times.
●● 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.
The lens is not retracted.
●● Do not open the memory card/battery cover while the camera is on. Close the

●● Lower the ISO speed (= 60).
Subjects are affected by red-eye (= 43).
●● Set [Red-Eye Lamp] to [On] (= 46) 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.
●● Edit images using red-eye correction (= 91).

●● The camera is a high-precision electronic device. Avoid dropping it or
subjecting it to strong impact.
Before Use
Basic Guide
Advanced Guide
●● 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.
