Handling and Safety Precautions continued....2/7
Safety Precautions
• Before using the camera, please ensure that you have read and understood the safety precautions described below. Always ensure that the camera is operated correctly.
• The safety precautions noted on the following pages are intended to instruct you in the safe
and correct operation of the camera and its accessories to prevent injuries or damage to
yourself, other persons and equipment.
• In the next few pages, the term “equipment” refers primarily to the camera and its power
supply accessories.
Warnings
• Stop operating the equipment immediately if it should emit smoke or noxious fumes. Failure to
do so may result in fire or electrical shock. Immediately shut off the camera’s power switch,
remove the camera battery and unplug the power adapter cord from the power socket.
Confirm that smoke or fume emissions cease. Please consult your camera distributor or the
closest Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
• Stop operating the equipment if it is dropped or the casing is damaged. Failure to do so may
result in fire or electrical shock. Immediately shut off the camera’s power switch, remove the
camera battery and unplug the power adapter cord from the power socket. Please consult your
camera distributor or the closest Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
10
Handling and Safety Precautions continued....3/7
• Prevent the equipment from contact with, or immersion in, water and other liquids. Do not
allow liquids to enter the interior. The camera has not been waterproofed. If the exterior comes
into contact with liquid or salt air, wipe it dry with a soft, absorbent cloth. In the event that
water or other foreign substances enter the interior, immediately shut off the camera’s power
switch, remove the camera battery and unplug the power adapter cord from the power socket.
Continued use of the equipment may result in fire or electrical shock. Please consult your
camera distributor or the closest Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
• To avoid the risk of high-voltage electrical shock, do not touch the flash portion of the camera if
it has been damaged. In addition, never touch internal portions of the equipment that become
exposed as a result of damage. There is a risk of high-voltage electrical shock. Please take the
first opportunity to consult your camera distributor or the closest Canon Customer Support Help
Desk.
• Do not attempt to disassemble or alter any part of the equipment that is not expressly prescribed in this guide. Disassembly or alteration may result in high-voltage electrical shock.
Internal inspections, alterations and repairs should be conducted by qualified service personnel
authorized by your camera distributor or the closest Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
• Do not use substances containing alcohol, benzene or thinners or other flammable substances
on the equipment. The use of these substances may lead to fire or electrical shock.
• Do not cut, damage, alter or place heavy items on the power adapter cord. Any of these actions
may cause an electrical short circuit, which may lead to fire or electrical shock. Replace a broken
or damaged power adapter cord.
11
Handling and Safety Precautions continued....4/7
• Do not handle the power adapter cord if your hands are wet or moist. Handling the power
adapter cord with wet hands may lead to electrical shock. When unplugging the cord, ensure
that you hold the rigid portion of the plug. Pulling on the flexible portion of the cord may
damage or expose the wire and insulation, creating the potential for fires or electrical shocks.
• Store this equipment out of the reach of children and infants. Accidental damage to the
equipment by a child could result in serious injury.
• Use of power sources not expressly recommended for this equipment may lead to overheating,
distortion of the equipment, fire, electrical shock or other hazards. Use only the recommended
compact power adapter and accessories.
• Power down the computer and unplug the power adapter cord before attempting to connect
the interface cable to avoid the risk of electrical shock.
• Be particularly careful to keep the button-sized (CR2016 lithium) batteries used in the camera
out of the reach of children. Seek medical assistance immediately if a child swallows a battery.
• Do not place the batteries near a heat source or expose them to direct flame or heat. Neither
should you immerse them in water. Such exposure may damage the batteries and lead to the
leakage of corrosive liquids, fire, electrical shock, explosion and serious injury.
• Do not attempt to disassemble, alter or apply heat to the batteries. There is serious risk of injury
due to an explosion. Immediately flush with water any area of the body or clothing that comes
into contact with the inner contents of a battery.
12
Handling and Safety Precautions continued....5/7
• Avoid dropping or subjecting the battery to severe impacts that could damage the casing. It
could lead to leakage and injury.
• Do not short-circuit the battery terminals with metallic objects, such as key holders. It could lead
to overheating, burns and other injuries. Use the supplied battery case when transporting or
storing batteries.
• Before you discard a battery, cover the terminals with tape or other insulators to prevent direct
contact with other objects. Contact with the metallic components of other materials in waste
containers may lead to fire or explosions. Discard the batteries in specialized waste facilities if
they are available in your area.
• Use of batteries not expressly recommended for this equipment may cause them to explode or leak,
resulting in fire, injury and damage to the surroundings. Use only recommended batteries and
accessories.
• Use only the recommended compact power adapter to recharge the rechargeable batteries. Use
of chargers not expressly recommended may result in overheating, distortion, fire or electrical
shock.
• Disconnect the compact power adapter from both the camera and power socket after recharging and when the camera is not in use to avoid fires and other hazards.
• The camera terminal of the compact power adapter cord is designed for exclusive use with
PowerShot cameras. Do not use the compact power adapter with other products or batteries
There is a risk of fire and other hazards.
13
Handling and Safety Precautions continued....6/7
• Do not trigger the flash in close proximity to human or animal eyes. Exposure to the intense
light produced by the flash may injure eyesight. In particular, remain at least one meter (39
inches) away from infants when using the flash.
• Do not aim the camera directly into the sun or at other intense light sources that could injure
your eyesight.
Caution
• 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. Exposure to intense sunlight and
heat may cause the batteries to leak, overheat or explode, resulting in fire, burns or other
injuries. High temperatures may also cause deformation of the casing.
• Be sure to use the compact power adapter in a well ventilated area when recharging batteries
or performing other recommended procedures.
• Do not store the equipment in humid or dusty areas. Storage in these areas could lead to fire,
electrical shock or other damage.
• Be careful when wearing or holding the camera by the strap not to bang or subject it to strong
impacts or shocks that could lead to injury or damage the equipment.
• Be careful not to cover the flash with your fingers when shooting. In addition, do not touch the
surface of the flash after taking several pictures in rapid succession. Either action could result in
burns.
14
Handling and Safety Precautions continued....7/7
Preventing Malfunctions
Avoid Strong Magnetic Fields
Never place the camera in close proximity to electric motors or other equipment generating strong
electric fields. Exposure to strong magnetic fields may cause malfunctions or corrupt image data.
Avoid Condensation Related Problems
Moving the equipment rapidly between hot and cold temperatures may cause condensation (water
droplets) to form on its external and internal surfaces. You can avoid this by placing the equipment in
a plastic bag and letting the contents adjust to temperature changes slowly before removing it from
the bag.
If Condensation Forms Inside the Camera
Stop using the camera immediately if you detect condensation. Continued use may damage the
equipment. Remove the CF card, batteries and power adapter cord from the camera and wait until
the moisture evaporates completely before resuming use.
Extended Storage
When not using the camera for extended periods of time, remove the batteries (except the buttonsized CR2016 lithium battery) and store the equipment in a safe place. Storing the camera for
extended periods with the batteries installed will run down the battery and may damage the camera.

Viewfinder
Viewfinder Frame Marks
The camera is equipped with an optical
viewfinder for image composition.
The camera focuses on the area encompassed
by the square brackets in the viewfinder’s
center. When composing images, aim the
camera so that the photographic subject is in
the middle of the viewfinder.
• In Macro mode (photographic subject 950 cm from the lens), the actual area
shot by the lens is slightly lower than the
area shown in the viewfinder. The closer
the camera is to the photographic
subject, the larger the difference
between these areas.
• When taking shots in Macro mode,
be sure to confirm the image composition and focus in the LCD panel.
22
• Pressing the shutter button halfway locks
the focus until the button is released.
This allows you to focus on a particular
object while freely changing the image
composition. A moment after depressing
the shutter button halfway, two beeps
will sound and a green or red indicator
will light, indicating a focus lock. You are
now free to reorient the camera knowing that your target subject is in focus.

landscape, and stitch it together later with a
computer. This mode displays the previous

Shooting Hints
• It is convenient to use the Stitch Assist
mode to quickly confirm as you shoot
that successive images overlap.
• When shooting images for 2x2 matrices,
ensure that each frame overlaps its
neighbor to prevent a gap appearing in
the middle of the merged image. Two
images that are askew or mismatched
from right to left (or top to bottom) will
result in such a gap.
• Shoot all images with the same focus
setting. Two images shot with substantially different focal distances — one
focused on the foreground, for example,
and another on the background — may
produce unsatisfactory results. Be
particularly careful with interior shots.
• When shooting a horizontal series of
scenery shots, hold the camera as level
(horizontal) as possible. Tilting the
camera up or down may prevent the
images from being successfully merged.
• Shooting images with a moving object in
the overlapped portion may produce
poor results.
• When shooting close-ups of documents
and magazines, avoid shooting segments
from different angles. Hold the camera
as close to parallel as possible.
• The difference in brightness of an image
shot with a flash and one without can
sometimes be too great to permit a
successful merge. If you intend to merge
images later with PhotoStitch, it is
recommended that you shoot without
the flash in relatively bright places.
