Test Shots
Before you try to photograph important subjects, we highly recommend that
you shoot several trial images to confirm that the camera is operating and
being operated correctly.
Please note that Canon Inc., its subsidiaries and affiliates, and its
distributors are not liable for any consequential damages arising from any
malfunction of a camera or accessory, including memory cards, that results
in the failure of an image to be recorded or to be recorded in a way that is
machine readable.
Warning Against Copyright Infringement
Please note that Canon digital cameras are intended for personal use and
should never be used in a manner that infringes upon or contravenes
international or domestic copyright laws and regulations. Please be advised
that in certain cases the copying of images from performances, exhibitions,
or commercial properties by means of a camera or other device may
contravene copyright or other legal rights even if the image was shot for
personal use.
Warranty Limitations
For information on your camera’s warranty, please refer to the Canon
European Warranty System (EWS) Booklet supplied with your camera.

manufacturing techniques. More than 99.99% of the pixels operate to
specification. Less than 0.01% of the pixels may occasionally misfire or
appear as red or black dots. This has no effect on the recorded image and
does not constitute a malfunction.

pointing in the right direction and if it is not, then set the Auto
Rotate function to [Off].
z Even if the Auto Rotate function is set to [On], the orientation
of images downloaded to a computer will depend upon the
software used to download the images.
When the camera is held vertically to shoot, the Intelligent
Orientation sensor judges the upper end to be “up” and the
lower end to be “down”. It then regulates the optimal white
balance, exposure and focus for vertical photography. This
function operates regardless of the on/off status of the Auto
Rotate function.

remove the battery from the camera or battery charger and
store the equipment in a safe place.
The battery can run down.
Appendix
z Avoid using, placing or storing the equipment in places
subject to strong sunlight or high temperatures, such as the
dashboard or trunk (boot) of a car.
z 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 if not fully
plugged into the outlet.
z Do not use in locations with poor ventilation.
The above-mentioned can cause leakage, overheating or explosion,
resulting in fire, burns or other injuries. High temperatures may also
cause deformation of the casing.
198
z Do not connect compact power adapters or battery chargers to
devices such as electrical transformers for foreign travel
because it may lead to malfunctions, excessive heat
generation, fire, electric shock or injury.
Flash
z Do not operate the flash with dirt, dust or other items stuck to
the surface of the flash.
z Be careful not to cover the flash with your fingers or clothing
when shooting.
The flash may be damaged and emit smoke or noise. The resulting
heat build-up could damage the flash.
z Do not touch the surface of the flash after taking several
pictures in rapid succession.
Doing so could result in burns.
Handling Precautions
The Camera
z To prevent malfunction and damage from electromagnetic
waves, never place the camera near motors or equipment
which generate strong magnetic fields.
Exposure to strong magnetic fields may cause malfunctions or
corrupt image data.
z To prevent condensation when moving the camera from a cold
location to a hot location, seal the camera inside a vinyl bag and
remove the camera after acclimatizing it to the ambient
temperature.
In the event that condensation in the camera occurs, remove the
memory card and battery and leave the camera idle at normal
temperature until the moisture naturally evaporates.
The 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.
199
z At low temperatures, battery performance may be reduced and
the remaining battery charge icon
(blinks red) may appear
earlier than usual.
Under these conditions, revive the battery by warming it in a pocket
immediately before use.
z However, ensure that there are no metallic items in the pocket
that could cause a short circuit, such as a key ring, etc.
The battery may be short circuiting.
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 (Fig. B).
These conditions can damage the
battery.

Appendix
Fig. C
Charged Battery
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.
200
z Since this is a lithium-ion battery, you need not discharge 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 1 hour 30 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.
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.
The Memory Card
z The write protect tab on SD and SDHC memory cards.
Write Protect Tab
Slide the switch up.
Writing/Erasing Possible
Slide the switch down.
(You can protect the
images and other data
on the memory card.)
Writing/Erasing Impossible
z Memory cards are high-precision electronic devices. Do not
bend them, apply force to them, or subject them to shocks or
vibration.
z Do not attempt to disassemble or alter the memory card.
z Do not allow dirt, water or foreign objects to contact the
terminals on the back of the memory card. Do not touch the
terminals with your hands or metal objects.
z Do not peel away the original label on the memory card or
cover it with another label or sticker.
201
z When writing on the memory card, do not use a pencil or ballpoint pen. Only use a soft point pen (e.g. felt-tip pen).
z Do not use or store memory cards in the following locations.
• Locations subject to dust or sand
• Locations subject to high humidity and high temperatures
z Since some or all of the data recorded on the memory card
may be corrupted or erased by electrical noise, static
electricity, camera or memory card malfunction, making a
backup copy of important data is recommended.
z Please note that formatting (initializing) a memory card erases
all data, including protected images.
z If formatting in the camera does not work properly, turn the
camera off and re-insert the memory card. Then turn the
camera back on and format again.
z Be careful when transferring or disposing of a memory card.
Formatting or erasing the data on a memory card merely
changes the file management information on the memory card
and does not ensure that its contents are completely deleted.
When disposing of a memory card, take precautions, such as
physically destroying the memory card, to prevent personal
information leaks.
Appendix
z You are recommended to use memory cards that have been
formatted in your camera.
• The memory card supplied with the camera may be used without
further formatting.
• When the camera is malfunctioning, a corrupted memory card
might be the cause. Reformatting the memory card may solve the
problem.
• When a non-Canon brand memory card is malfunctioning,
reformatting it may solve the problem.
• Memory cards formatted in other cameras, computers, or
peripheral devices may not operate correctly in this camera. When
that happens, reformat the memory card with this camera.
202
Using an AC Adapter Kit (Sold Separately)

Sockets
z The flash charge time will lengthen as the battery charge
gets weaker. Always set the power/mode switch to [OFF]
when you finish using the flash.
z Be careful not to touch the flash window or sensor windows
with your fingers while the flash is in use.
z The flash may fire if another flash is being used in close
proximity.
z The High-Power Flash may not fire outdoors in daylight or
when there are no reflective items.
z For continuous shooting, although the flash fires for the first
shot, it does not fire for subsequent shots.
z Fasten the attachment screws securely so that they do not
loosen. Failure to do so may lead to the dropping of the
camera and flash resulting in damage to both.
Appendix
Bracket

204
z Before attaching the bracket to the flash, check that the
lithium battery (CR123A or DL123) is installed.
z To illuminate the subjects properly, install the flash so that it
is up against the side of the camera and parallel with the
camera’s front panel.
z A tripod can be used even when the flash is attached.
Batteries
• Charge becomes Severely Limited
If the battery usage time has considerably diminished, wipe the
battery terminals well with a dry cloth. The terminals may be dirty
from fingerprints.
• Usage in Cold Temperatures
Get a spare generic lithium battery (CR123A or DL123). You are
recommended to place the spare battery in your pocket to warm it up
before switching it for the battery in the flash.
• Non-Use over Extended Periods
Leaving batteries in the High-Power Flash could allow the battery
fluid to leak, damaging the product. Remove the batteries from the
High-Power Flash and store them in a cool, dry place.
