• Be sure to also check the guides included with any separately sold accessories you
use.
Warning
Denotes the possibility of serious injury or death.
• Do not trigger the flash in close proximity to people’s eyes.
Exposure to the intense light produced by the flash could damage eyesight. In particular,
remain at least one meter (39 inches) away from infants when using the flash.
• Store this equipment out of the reach of children and infants.
Strap: Putting the strap around a child’s neck could result in asphyxiation.
•
•
•
•
Use only recommended power sources.
Do not attempt to disassemble, alter or apply heat to the product.
Avoid dropping or subjecting the product to severe impacts.
To avoid the risk of injury, do not touch the interior of the product if it has been
dropped or otherwise damaged.
• Stop using the product immediately if it emits smoke, a strange smell, or
otherwise behaves abnormally.
• Do not use organic solvents such as alcohol, benzine, or thinner to clean the
product.
• Do not let the product come into contact with water (e.g. sea water) or other
liquids.
• Do not allow liquids or foreign objects to enter the camera.
This could result in electrical shock or fire.
If liquids or foreign objects come into contact with the camera interior, immediately turn
the camera off and remove the battery.
If the battery charger becomes wet, unplug it from the outlet and consult your camera
distributor or a Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
• Do not look through the viewfinder at bright light sources (such as the sun on a
clear day).
This could damage your eyesight.
10
Safety Precautions
• Use only the recommended battery.
• Do not place the battery near or in direct flame.
• Unplug the power cord periodically, and using a dry cloth, 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 terminals
or plug.
The battery may explode or leak, resulting in electrical shock or fire. This could cause
injury and damage the surroundings. In the event that a battery leaks and the battery
electrolyte contacts eyes, mouth, skin or clothing, immediately flush with water.
• Turn the camera off in places where camera use is prohibited.
The electromagnetic waves emitted by the camera may interfere with the operation of
electronic instruments and other devices. Exercise adequate caution when using the
camera in places where use of electronic devices is restricted, such as inside airplanes
and medical facilities.
• Do not play the supplied CD-ROM(s) in any CD player that does not support data
CD-ROMs.
It is possible to suffer hearing loss from listening with headphones to the loud sounds of
a CD-ROM played on an audio CD player (music player). Additionally, this could damage
the speakers.
Caution
Denotes the possibility of injury.
• When holding the camera by the strap, be careful not to bang it, subject it to
strong impacts or shocks, or let it get caught on other objects.
• Be careful not to bump or push strongly on the lens.
This could lead to injury or damage the camera.
• 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.
• Avoid using, placing or storing the product 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 cause deformation of the camera or battery charger casing.
• Viewing images on the camera screen for prolonged periods may cause
discomfort.
11
Safety Precautions
Caution
Denotes the possibility of damage to the equipment.
• Do not aim the camera at bright light sources (such as the sun on a clear day).
Doing so may 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 product 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.
• 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 the battery, cover the terminals with tape or other insulators.
Contacting other metal materials may lead to fire or explosions.
• Unplug the battery charger from the power outlet after charging 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.
• Do not place the battery near pets.
Pets biting the battery could cause leakage, overheating or explosion, resulting in fire or
damage.
• Do not sit down with the camera in your pocket.
Doing so may cause malfunctions or damage the screen.
• When putting the camera in your bag, ensure that hard objects do not come into
contact with the screen.
• Do not attach any hard objects to the camera.
Doing so may cause malfunctions or damage the screen.
12
Preliminary Notes and Legal
Information
• Take and review some test shots initially to make sure the images were
recorded 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.
• Images recorded by the camera are intended for personal use. Refrain
from unauthorized recording that infringes on copyright law, and note that
even for personal use, photography may contravene copyright or other
legal rights at some performances or exhibitions, or in some commercial
settings.
• For information on your camera's warranty, please refer to the Warranty
information provided with your camera. For Canon Customer Support,
please refer to the warranty information for contact information.
• Although the LCD monitor is produced under extremely high-precision
manufacturing conditions and more than 99.99% of the pixels meet design
specifications, in rare cases some pixels may be defective or may appear
as red or black dots. This does not indicate camera damage or affect
recorded images.
• The LCD monitor may be covered with a thin plastic film for protection
against scratches during shipment. If covered, remove the film before
using the camera.
• When the camera is used over an extended period, it may become warm.
This does not indicate damage.

Using Face ID
If you register a person ahead of time, the camera will detect that person’s
face, and prioritize focus, brightness, and color for that person when shooting.
In A mode, the camera can detect babies and children based on
registered birthdays and optimize settings for them when shooting.
This function is also useful when searching for a specific registered person
among a large number of images (p. 135).
Personal Information
• Information such as images of a face (face info) registered with Face ID,
and personal information (name, birthday) will be saved on the camera.
Additionally, when registered people are detected, their names will be
recorded in still images. When using the Face ID function, be careful when
sharing the camera or images with others, and when posting images online
where many others can view them.
• When disposing of a camera or transferring it to another person after using
Face ID, be sure to erase all information (registered faces, names, and
birthdays) from the camera (p. 74).

as the main subject, and optimize focus, brightness, and color for that person
when shooting.
X When you point the camera toward a subject,
the names of up to 3 registered people will be
displayed when they are detected.
z Shoot.
X Displayed names will be recorded in still
images. Even if people are detected, but their
names are not displayed, the names (up to 5
people) will be recorded in the image.
• People other than those registered may be mistakenly detected as
the registered person if they share similar facial features.
• Registered people may not be correctly detected if the captured image or scene
differs drastically from the registered face information.
• If a registered face is not detected, or not easily detected, overwrite registered
information with new face info. Registering face info right before shooting will
allow for easier detection of registered faces.
• If a person is mistakenly detected as another person and you continue shooting,
you can edit or erase the name recorded in the image during playback (p. 138).
• Because faces of babies and children change quickly as they grow, you should
update their face info regularly (p. 72).

Tips on Using Included Accessories
Effective Battery and Charger Use
• Charge the battery on (or immediately before) the day of use
Charged batteries gradually lose their charge, even when they are not used.
IXUS 240 HS
You can easily check the charge state of the battery by
attaching the cover so that S is visible on a charged battery,
and attaching it so that S is not visible on an uncharged
battery.
• Long-term battery storage
After using up all remaining battery power, remove the battery from the camera.
Store the battery with the cover attached. Storing a partially charged battery over
extended periods (about a year) may shorten its life or affect performance.
• Using the battery charger abroad
The charger can be used in areas with 100 – 240 V AC power (50/60 Hz). For
power outlets in a different format, use a commercially available adapter for the
plug. Never use an electrical transformer designed for traveling, which may
damage the battery.

Using an Eye-Fi Card
Before using an Eye-Fi card, always confirm that local use is permitted (p. 3).
Inserting a prepared Eye-Fi card enables automatic wireless transfer of
images to a computer or uploading to a photo-sharing website.
Images are transferred by the Eye-Fi card. Refer to the card’s user manual or
contact the manufacturer for instructions on preparing and using cards or
resolving transfer problems.
• When using an Eye-Fi card, keep the following points in mind.
• Cards may continue to transmit radio waves even when [Eye-Fi
trans.] is set to [Disable] (p. 193). Remove the Eye-Fi card before
entering hospitals, aircraft, or other areas where transmission is
prohibited.
• When troubleshooting image transfer issues, check the card and
computer settings. For details, refer to the card’s user manual.
• Poor Eye-Fi connections may cause image transfer to take a long
time, and transfer may be interrupted in some cases.
• Eye-Fi cards may become hot, due to their transfer functions.
• Battery power will be consumed faster than in normal use.
• Camera operation may become sluggish. To resolve this, try setting
[Eye-Fi trans.] to [Disable].
• Eye-fi transmission is not possible when the camera is connected to
a wireless LAN.

If you think there is a problem with the camera, first check the following. If the
items below do not solve your problem, contact a Canon Customer Support
Help Desk.
Power
Nothing happens when the ON/OFF button is pressed.
• Confirm that you are using the correct type of battery, and that there is sufficient charge
(p. 205).
• Confirm that the battery is inserted facing the correct way (pp. 18, 20).
IXUS 510 HS
• Confirm that the memory card cover and battery cover are fully closed (pp. 18, 19).
IXUS 240 HS
• Confirm that the memory card/battery cover is fully closed (p. 20).
The battery is depleted quickly.
• Battery performance decreases at low temperatures. Try warming the battery a little by
putting it in your pocket, for example, with the terminal cover on.
• If these measures do not help and the battery is still depleted soon after charging, it has
reached the end of its life. Purchase a new battery.
The lens is not retracted.
IXUS 510 HS
• Do not open the memory card cover or battery cover while the camera is on. Close the
cover, turn the camera on, and then turn it off again (pp. 18, 19).
IXUS 240 HS
• Do not open the memory card/battery cover while the camera is on. Close the cover,
turn the camera on, and then turn it off again (p. 20).
The battery is swollen.
• Battery swelling is normal and does not pose any safety concerns. However, if battery
swelling prevents the battery from fitting in the camera, contact a Canon Customer
Support Help Desk.

Troubleshooting
Shots look grainy.
• Lower the ISO speed (p. 108).
• High ISO speeds in some shooting modes may cause grainy images (p. 86).
Subjects are affected by red-eye (p. 76).
• Set [Red-Eye Lamp] to [On] (p. 81) to activate the red-eye reduction lamp (p. 4) in flash
shots. Note that while the red-eye reduction lamp is on (for about one second), it is not
possible to shoot, because the lamp is counteracting red-eye. For best results, have
subjects look at the red-eye reduction lamp. Also try increasing the lighting in indoor
scenes and shooting at closer range.
• Edit images using red-eye correction (p. 155).

Playback is not possible.
• Image or movie playback may not be possible if a computer is used to rename files or
alter the folder structure. Refer to the ImageBrowser EX User Guide for details on folder
structure and file names.
Playback stops, or audio skips.
• Switch to a memory card that you have performed low-level formatting on with the
camera (p. 162).
• There may be brief interruptions when playing movies copied to memory cards that
have slow read speeds.
• When movies are played on a computer, frames may be dropped and audio may skip
if computer performance is inadequate.
Touch-Screen
Having difficulty choosing items or buttons by touch.
• Operations may be easier if you press a little harder or use the stylus attached to the
strap, because the touch-screen panel works by detecting pressure (p. 14).

correct, restart the printer and complete the setting on the camera again.
Ink absorber full
• Contact a Canon Customer Support Help Desk to request assistance with ink absorber
replacement.
202
Handling Precautions
• The camera is a high-precision electronic device. Avoid dropping it or
subjecting it to strong impact.
• Never bring the camera near magnets, motors, or other devices that
generate strong electromagnetic fields, which may cause malfunction or
erase image data.
• If water droplets or dirt adheres to the camera or screen, wipe with a dry
soft cloth, such as an eyeglass cloth. Do not rub hard or apply force.
• Never use cleaners containing organic solvents to clean the camera or
screen.
• Use a blower brush to remove dust from the lens. If cleaning is difficult,
contact a Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
• To prevent condensation from forming on the camera after sudden
temperature changes (when the camera is transferred from cold to warm
environments), put the camera in an airtight, resealable plastic bag and let
it gradually adjust to the temperature before removing it from the bag.
• If condensation does form on the camera, stop using it immediately.
Continuing to use the camera in this state may damage it. Remove the
battery and memory card, and wait until the moisture has evaporated
before resuming use.
