(Blinking red)
“Change the battery pack.”
Nearly depleted.
Depleted. Recharge the battery.
Using the battery and charger effectively
• Charge the battery on the day, or the day before, it will be used.
Charged batteries continue to discharge naturally even if they are not used.
Attach the cover to a charged battery so that
the
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 devices, such as electrical transformers for foreign travel, because they
will cause malfunctions.
• 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.

Formatting Memory Cards
Before you use a new memory card or one that has been used in other
devices, you should format the card with this camera. Formatting (initializing)
a memory card erases all data on the memory card. As you cannot retrieve
the erased data, exercise adequate caution before formatting the memory
card.

● Press the n button.
Select [Format].
● Press the qr buttons to select the 3 tab.
● Press the op buttons or turn the  dial
to select [Format], then press the m
button.
Format the memory card.
● Press the qr buttons or turn the  dial
to select [OK], then press the m button.
The memory card will be formatted.
When formatting has finished, the menu
screen will reappear.
Formatting or erasing data on a memory card merely changes the file
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.
22
Pressing the Shutter Button
The shutter button has two stops. To take images that are in focus, be sure
to first press the shutter button lightly (halfway) to focus, then take the shot.
Press halfway (lightly to the first
stop).
The camera focuses and automatically
selects the necessary settings for
shooting, such as the brightness.
When the camera focuses, it will beep
twice and the indicator will light green.
Press fully (to the second stop).
The camera plays the shutter sound and
takes the shot.
● Since the shot is being taken while the
shutter sound plays, be careful not to
move the camera.
Does the length of the shutter sound change?
• Since the time required to shoot differs according to the scene you want to take,
the length of the shutter sound may change.
• If the camera or subject moves while the shutter sound is playing, the recorded
image may be blurry.
If you just press the shutter button fully without pausing halfway, the
image may not be in focus.
23
A Taking Pictures
Since the camera can determine the subject and shooting conditions, you
can let it automatically select the best settings for the scene and just shoot.
The camera can also detect and focus on faces, setting the color and
brightness to optimal levels.
Turn on the camera.
● Press the power button.
The start-up sound will play, and the
startup screen will appear.
● Pressing the power button again will turn
the camera off.
Select the A mode.
● Set the mode switch to A.
● When you point the camera toward the
subject, the camera will make a slight
noise as it determines the scene.
The camera focuses on the subject it
judges to be the main subject, and
displays the icon for the determined scene
in the upper right of the screen.
When faces are detected, a white frame

Information Displayed on the Screen
Display in Dark Conditions during Shooting
The display automatically brightens when shooting in dark conditions,
allowing you to check the composition (Night Display function). However, the
brightness of the image on the screen, and the brightness of the actual
image recorded may be different. Screen noise may appear and the
movement of the subject may appear somewhat jagged on the screen. This
has no effect on the recorded image.
Overexposure Warning during Playback
In “Detailed Information Display” (p. 45), overexposed areas of the image
flash on the screen.
Histogram during Playback
High
Low
Dark
Bright
● The graph that appears in “Detailed
Information Display” (p. 45) is called the
histogram. The histogram shows the
distribution and amount of brightness of
an image. When the graph approaches
the right side, the image is bright, but
when it approaches the left side, the
image is dark, and in this way you can
judge the exposure.

name as the folder that the camera is attempting to create, or the highest
possible file number has already been reached (p. 129). In the 3 menu, change
[File Numbering] to [Auto Reset] (p. 128) or format the memory card (p. 22).
Communication error
• Images could not be transferred to the computer or printed due to the large

Handling Precautions
Equipment
• 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 or motors that generate strong
electromagnetic fields. Exposure to strong magnetic fields may cause
malfunctions or corrupt image data.
• If water droplets have fallen or dirt is stuck on the camera or LCD monitor,
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
LCD monitor.
• Use a commercially available blower brush to remove dust from the lens.
For stubborn dirt contact the closest 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.
Memory Cards
• A memory card is a high-precision electronic device. Do not bend, apply
force or subject it to strong impacts. Doing so may corrupt image data
recorded on the memory card.
• Do not spill liquids on the memory card. Do not touch the memory card’s
terminals with your hands or metallic objects.
• Do not store memory cards near a TV, speakers or other devices that
generate magnetic fields or static electricity. Doing so may corrupt image
data recorded on the memory card.
• Do not store memory cards in hot, humid or dusty locations.
