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 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

press the m button.
X The memory card will be formatted.
X 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.

A Taking Pictures
• The image comes out dark even if the flash fired when shooting?
The subject is too far away for the flash to reach. Shoot within the effective flash
range of approximately 30 cm – 4.2 m (12 in. – 14 ft.) at maximum wide angle,
and approximately 30 cm – 2.4 m (12 in. – 7.9 ft.) at maximum telephoto.
• The indicator blinks orange and the camera beeps once when the shutter

Power Saving Function (Auto Power Down)
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. 43), 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. 43) 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.
Power Saving Function (Auto Power Down)
To save battery power, the camera shuts down automatically when it is not
operated for a certain time.
Power Saving during Shooting
The monitor will turn off approximately 1 minute after the camera is last
operated. After about 2 more minutes, the lens will retract and the power will
turn off. When the monitor has turned off but the lens has not retracted yet,
pressing the shutter button halfway (p. 21) turns on the monitor and shooting
can continue.
Power Saving during Playback

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 Canon 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.
