A certain amount of processing time, however, may be required before the next image can be shot.

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 from cold to hot 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.

If condensation forms on the camera, remove the memory card and battery, and set the camera aside in room temperature to allow the condensation to naturally evaporate before using the camera again.

Battery

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 (blinks red) may appear earlier than usual.

Under these conditions, restore the battery performance by warming it in a pocket immediately before use.

z

Do not put the battery into a pocket together with metallic items such as a key ring.

The battery may be short circuiting.

211 z

Do not allow any metal objects 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

z

You are recommended to use it in the camera until it is depleted 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 in the camera about once a year before returning it to storage.

z

Since this is a lithium-ion battery, you need not deplete it before recharging.

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

It takes approximately 2 hours 5 minutes to fully charge the battery from a depleted 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.

212 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.

At low temperatures, the battery performance may diminish and the low battery icon (blinks red) may appear very rapidly. In these circumstances, the performance can be improved by warming the battery in a pocket before use.

Test Conditions

Shooting: Normal temperature (23 °C ±2 °C/73 °F ±3.6 °F), normal relative humidity (50% ±20%), alternating wide angle end and telephoto end shots at 30 second intervals with the flash fired once every two shots and the camera power turned off after every tenth shot. Power is left off for a sufficient amount of time*, then the power is turned back on and the testing procedure is repeated.

• A Canon-brand memory card is used.

* Until the battery returns to normal temperature

Playback: Normal temperature (23 °C ±2 °C/73 °F ±3.6 °F), normal relative humidity (50% ±20%), continuous playback at 3 seconds per image.
