• Use only recommended batteries.
• Do not place the battery near or in direct flame.
• Do not let the battery come into contact with water (e.g. sea water) or other
liquids.
• Do not attempt to disassemble, alter or apply heat to the battery.
• Avoid dropping or subjecting the battery to severe impacts.
This 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
contacts these substances, immediately flush with water and seek medical assistance.
If the battery charger becomes wet, unplug it from the outlet and consult your camera
distributor or the closest Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
• Use only the specified battery charger to charge the battery.
• Unplug the power cord periodically and 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 charger
terminals or plug.
This could result in fire or electrical shock.
Other Warnings
• Do not play the supplied CD-ROM(s) in any CD player that does not support
data CD-ROMs.
Playing the CD-ROM(s) in an audio CD player (music player) could damage the speakers.
It is also possible to suffer hearing loss from listening with headphones to the loud sounds
of a CD-ROM played on a music CD player.
Caution
• Be careful not to bang the camera or subject it to strong impacts or shocks
when hanging it by the strap.
• Be careful not to bump or push strongly on the lens.
This could damage the camera or lead to injury.
• Avoid using, placing or storing the camera in the following places.
- Places subject to strong 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, resulting in
electrical shock, fire, burns or other injuries. High temperatures may also cause
deformation of the casing.

Safety Precautions
• 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.
Caution
• Do not aim the camera at bright light sources (the sun, etc.).
Doing so may cause malfunctions or 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.
This may cause the camera 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.
• Unplug the battery charger from the power outlet after recharging is complete,
or when you are not using it.
• Do not place anything, such as cloth on top of the battery charger while it is
charging.
Leaving the unit plugged in for a long period of time may cause it to overheat and distort,
resulting in fire.
• Remove and store the battery when you are not using the camera.
If the battery is left inside the camera, damage caused by leakage may occur.
• Before you discard battery, cover the terminals with tape or other insulators.
Contacting other metal materials in waste containers may lead to fire or explosions.
• Do not place the battery near pets.
Pets biting the battery could cause leakage, overheating or explosion, resulting in fire or
injuries.
• Do not sit down with the camera in your pocket.
Doing so may cause malfunctions or damage the LCD monitor.
• When putting the camera in your bag, ensure that hard objects do not come into
contact with the LCD monitor.

Attach the cover to a charged battery so that
the S mark is visible.
• How to store the battery for long periods:
Deplete and remove the battery from the camera. Attach the terminal cover
and store the battery. Storing a battery for long periods of time (about a year)
without depleting it may shorten its life span or affect its performance.
• The battery charger can also be used when abroad.
The charger can be used in regions that have 100 – 240 V (50/60 Hz) AC power.
If the plug does not fit the outlet, use a commercially available plug adapter. Do
not use electrical transformers for foreign travel as they will cause damage.
• The battery may develop a bulge.
This is a normal characteristic of the battery and does not indicate a problem.
However, if the battery bulges to the point where it will no longer fit into the
camera, please contact a Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
• If the battery is quickly depleted even after charging, it has reached the
end of its life span.
Purchase a new battery.

management information on the card and does not ensure its contents
are completely erased. Be careful when transferring or disposing of a
memory card. When disposing of a memory card, take precautions such
as physically destroying the card to prevent personal information leaks.
The total capacity of the memory card displayed in the formatting screen
may be less than indicated on the memory card.

What if...
• What if white and gray frames appear when you point the camera toward
a subject?
When faces are detected, a white frame appears on the face of the main
subject, while gray frames appear on other detected faces. The frames will
follow the subjects within a certain range (p. 78).
• What if the indicator blinks orange and
blinks on the screen?
Attach the camera to a tripod so that the camera does not move and blur the
image.
• What if the camera does not play any sounds?
Pressing the l button while turning on the camera power will turn off all
sounds except for warning sounds. To turn the sounds on, press the n
button, choose the 3 tab, and then choose [Mute]. Press the qr buttons to
choose [Off].
• What if the image comes out dark even if the flash fired when shooting?
The subject is too far away for the flash to reach. Move the zoom lever toward
j and hold it until the lens stops moving. The camera will be at its maximum
wide angle setting and you can shoot within the effective flash range of
approximately 30 cm – 4.0 m (12 in. – 13 ft.).
Move the zoom lever toward i and hold it until the lens stops moving. The
camera will be at its maximum telephoto setting and you can shoot within the
effective flash range of approximately 50 cm – 2.0 m (1.6 – 6.6 ft.).
• What if the camera beeps once when the shutter button is pressed
halfway?
Your subject may be too close. Move the zoom lever toward j and hold it until
the lens stops moving. The camera will be at its maximum wide angle setting
and you will be able to focus on subjects that are approximately 3 cm (1.2 in.)
or more away from the end of the lens.
Move the zoom lever toward i and hold it until the lens stops moving. The
camera will be at its maximum telephoto setting and you will be able to focus
on subjects that are about 50 cm (1.6 ft.) or more away from the end of the
lens.
• What if the lamp lights when the shutter button is pressed halfway?
To reduce red-eye and to assist in focusing, the lamp may light when shooting
in dark areas.
• What if the h icon blinks when you try to shoot?
The flash is charging. You can shoot when recharging ends.

in the correct direction, contact your Canon Customer Support Help Desk
(p. 17).
Insufficient space on card
• There is not enough free space on the memory card to shoot (pp. 24, 53, 63, 77)
or edit images (pp. 103 – 105). Erase the images (pp. 29, 101) to open space for
new images, or insert an empty memory card (p. 17).
Change the battery pack. (p. 17)
No Image.
• There are no images recorded on the memory card that can be displayed.
Protected! (p. 100)

Exceeded selection limit
• You chose more than 998 images in print settings. Choose less than 998
images (p. 110).
• Print settings could not be saved correctly. Reduce the number of selected
images and try again (p. 110).
Communication error
• Images could not be transferred to the computer or printed due to the large
amount of images (approx. 1000) stored on the memory card. Use a
commercially available USB card reader to transfer the images. Insert the
memory card into the printer’s card slot to print.
Naming error!
• The folder or image could not be created because there is an image with the
same file name as the folder or image that the camera is attempting to create, or
the highest possible file number has already been reached. In the 3 menu,
change [File Numbering] to [Auto Reset] (p. 114) or format the memory card
(p. 51).
Lens Error
• This error can occur if you hold the lens while it is in motion or when using it in a
location with excessive dust or sand in the air.
• If this error message continues to appear, contact your Canon Customer
Support Help Desk as there may be a problem with the lens.
A camera error was detected (Error number)
• If an error code appears directly after taking a picture, the shot may not have
been recorded. Check the image in Playback mode.

Handling Precautions
• This camera is a high-precision electronic device. Do not drop it or subject
it to strong impacts.
• Never place the camera close to magnets, motors or other devices that
generate strong electromagnetic fields. Exposure to strong magnetic
fields may cause malfunctions or corrupt image data.
• If water droplets have fallen onto, or dirt is stuck on the camera or screen,
wipe with a dry soft cloth or eyeglass wiper. Do not rub or apply force.
• Never use cleaners containing organic solvents to wipe the camera or
screen.
• Use a commercially available blower brush to remove dust from the lens.
For stubborn dirt contact a Canon Customer Support Help Desk as listed
in your Warranty System Booklet.
• When you move the camera rapidly from cold to hot temperatures,
condensation may form on the internal or external surfaces of the camera.
To avoid condensation, put the camera in an airtight, resealable plastic
bag and let it adjust to temperature changes slowly before removing it
from the bag.
• If condensation has formed, stop using the camera immediately.
Continued use may damage the camera. Remove the battery and
memory card, and wait until the moisture has completely evaporated
before resuming use.
