Precautions for Connecting the Camera to the Computer
•When connecting the camera to the computer with an interface cable, make sure to connect
the cable directly to the computer’s USB port. The connection may not operate correctly if
you attach the camera to the computer via a USB hub.
•The connection may not operate correctly if you are using other USB devices, excluding
USB mice or keyboards, at the same time as the camera. If this occurs, disconnect the other
devices from the computer and try reconnecting the camera.
•Do not connect two or more cameras at the same time to the same computer. The
connections may not operate correctly.
•Do not allow the computer to go into sleep (standby) mode while a camera is connected
via the USB interface cable. If this does happen, do not disconnect the interface cable. Try
to awaken the computer with the camera in the connected state. Some computers will not
awaken properly if you disconnect the camera while they are in sleep (standby) mode. Please
refer to your computer manual for instructions regarding the sleep (standby) mode.
•Do not disconnect the camera from the computer if CameraWindow is displayed on the
screen.

IMPORTANT
•You are recommended to use an AC adapter (sold separately) when connecting
to a computer. Ensure that you use fully charged batteries if you cannot use an
AC adapter.
• See the Camera User Guide for procedures on connecting the camera to the
computer.

About RAW Images
RAW images contain the data captured by the camera’s image sensor without modification. Since
they contain raw data that differs from the usual JPEG images by not having any image adjustment or

process.

Supported Image Types
The following is a list of image types supported by ImageBrowser.
JPEG
Most cameras use this image type. It compresses at very high ratios, taking advantage
of the characteristics of the human eye. However, because it is an irreversible
compression method (part of the data is lost during compression), if you process and
save an image repeatedly using this method, the image may become rougher.
Exif JPEG is an image type that adds information such as shooting data to a JPEG
image.
RAW
Y
P
O
C
This is a proprietary image type provided by Canon. It allows the output of the image
pixels from a digital camera without any deterioration in the quality of the image.
Some cameras might not support this image type.
PICT
This is the standard image type for Macintosh. This image type is supported by most
Macintosh software.
TIFF
This is a relatively popular image type. It is widely supported by non-Macintosh
programs (such as Windows).
BMP (Windows Bitmap)
This image type comes standard with Windows. Most Windows programs support it.
AVI (.AVI)
Standard Windows movie type. The movie icon appears in ImageBrowser’s Browser
Area.
MOV (.MOV)
Movie type. The movie icon appears in ImageBrowser’s Browser Area.
