●● 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.
11
●● Avoid contact with liquid, and do not allow liquid or foreign objects
inside.
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.
●● 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 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.
●● 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.
●● Use only the recommended battery pack/batteries.
●● Do not place the battery pack/batteries near or in direct flame.
This may cause the battery pack/batteries to explode or leak, resulting in
electrical shock, fire, or injuries. If leaking battery electrolyte comes into
contact with eyes, mouth, skin, or clothing, immediately flush with water.
●● 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.

avoid pinching your fingers with the lowering flash.
This could result in injury.
Caution
Denotes the possibility of property damage.
●● Do not aim the camera at intense light sources, such as the sun on a
clear day or an intense artificial light source.
Doing so may damage the image sensor or other internal components.
●● Unplug any battery charger used with the product when not in use. Do
not cover with a cloth or other objects when in use.
Leaving the unit plugged in for a long period of time may cause it to

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.
Specifications
Camera Specifications
Camera Effective
Pixels (Max.)
Lens Focal
Length
●● Never use cleaners containing organic solvents to clean the camera
or screen.
LCD Monitor
●● Use a blower brush to remove dust from the lens. If cleaning is difficult,
contact a Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
File Format
●● 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.
Data Type
●● 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.
