substances to clean or maintain the equipment. The use of these substances may
lead to fire.
z
Remove the power cord on a regular periodic basis and wipe away the dust and
dirt that collects on the plug, the exterior of the power outlet and the surrounding
area. In dusty, humid or greasy environments, the dust that collects around the plug
over long periods of time may become saturated with humidity and short-circuit,
leading to fire.
z
Do not cut, damage, alter or place heavy items on the power cord. Any of these
actions may cause an electrical short circuit, which may lead to fire or electrical shock.
z
Do not handle the power cord if your hands are wet. Handling it with wet hands may
lead to electrical shock. When unplugging the cable, ensure that you hold the solid
portion of the plug. Pulling on the flexible portion of the cable may damage or expose
the wire and insulation, creating the potential for fires or electrical shocks.
z
Use only recommended power accessories. Use of power sources not expressly
recommended for this equipment may lead to overheating, distortion of the equipment,
fire, electrical shock or other hazards.
z
Do not place the batteries near a heat source or expose them to direct flame or
heat. Neither should you immerse it in water. Such exposure may damage the battery
and lead to the leakage of corrosive liquids, fire, electrical shock, explosion or serious
injury.
z
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,
including the eyes and mouth, or clothing that comes into contact with the inner
contents of a battery.
z
Avoid dropping or subjecting the batteries to severe impacts that could damage
the casings. It could lead to leakage and injury.
6
z
Do not short-circuit the battery terminals with metallic objects, such as key
holders. It could lead to overheating, burns and other injuries.
z
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.
z
Use only recommended batteries and accessories. Use of batteries not expressly
recommended for this equipment may cause explosions or leaks, resulting in fire, injury
and damage to the surroundings.
z
Use the specified battery charger to charge Battery Pack NB-2LH. Use of other
chargers may lead to overheating, distortion of the equipment, fire or electrical shock.
z
Disconnect the battery charger and compact power adapter from both the camera
and the power outlet after recharging and when they are not in use to avoid fire
and other hazards. Continuous use over a long period may cause a unit to overheat
and distort, resulting in fire.
z
The camera terminal of the battery charger and separately sold compact power
adapter are designed for exclusive use with your camera. Do not use it with other
products or batteries. There is a risk of fire and other hazards.
Keep the camera terminal of the battery charger clean, and do not place any
metallic objects on it. There is a risk of fire and other hazards.
z Exercise due caution when screwing on the separately sold wide converter, teleconverter and conversion lens adapter. If they come loose, they may fall from the
lens adapter, posing risk of injury from shattered glass.
z
Caution about magnetic fields
Keep objects that are sensitive to magnetic fields (such as credit cards) away from the
speaker of the camera (p. 12). Such items may lose data or stop working.
Cautions
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. Ensure that there is good ventilation when using the battery
charger to charge the batteries.
z Do not store the equipment in humid or dusty areas. Storage in such areas could
lead to fire, electrical shock or other damage.
z
7
z
Be careful not to bang the camera or subject it to strong impacts or shocks that
could lead to injury or damage the equipment when wearing or holding it by
the strap.

warm. Please take care when operating the camera for an extended period as your
hands may experience a burning sensation.
Preventing Malfunctions
„Avoid Strong Magnetic Fields
Never place the camera in close proximity to electric motors or other
equipment generating strong electromagnetic fields. Exposure to strong
magnetic fields may cause malfunctions or corrupt image and audio 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 an airtight, resealable
plastic bag and letting it adjust to temperature changes slowly before
removing it from the bag.
8
„If Condensation Forms Inside the Camera
Stop using the camera immediately if you detect condensation. Continued
use may damage the equipment.
Remove the memory card and batteries or compact power adapter 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 from the camera or battery charger and store the equipment in a
safe place.
The date/time settings may be lost after approximately three weeks if you
remove the main battery.

Image Seen in Viewfinder vs. Recorded Image
Please note that the actual image may differ from the image seen in the
optical viewfinder due to the physical separation between the viewfinder
and lens. This is called the parallax phenomenon and is more noticeable
the closer the subject is to the lens. In some cases, portions of images
shot up close that appear in the viewfinder will not appear in the recorded
image. Please use the LCD monitor to shoot images up close.
LCD Monitor Brightness
Changing the brightness of the LCD monitor
The brightness of the LCD monitor can be changed in the following two
ways.
z Changing Settings Using the Set up Menu (p. 29)
z Changing Settings Using the DISP. Button (Quick-bright LCD Function)
Pressing the DISP. button for at least 1 second switches the brightness to
the highest setting*.
z Pressing it again for at least 1 second restores it to the original setting.
z If you set the brightness to the highest setting using this method and turn
the camera power off, the brightness setting will revert to the value set in
the Set up menu.
* If the brightness setting is already at the maximum in the [Setup] menu,
you cannot modify the brightness.
Night Display
When shooting in dark conditions, the camera automatically brightens the
LCD monitor to suit the brightness of the subject*, making it easier to frame
the subject.
* Noise will appear, and the movements of the subject will appear irregular in
the LCD monitor. The brightness of the image displayed in the monitor, and
the brightness of the actual image recorded will be different (this function
cannot be disabled).

Histogram Function
The histogram is a graph that allows you to judge the brightness of the
image while shooting. In P, Tv, Av and M modes, the greater the bias
toward the left in the graph, the darker the image. The greater the bias
toward the right, the brighter the image.
If the image is too dark, adjust the exposure compensation to a positive
value (p. 69), set a low shutter speed, or set a low aperture value.
Similarly, adjust the exposure compensation to a negative value, set a fast
shutter speed, or set a large aperture value if the image is too bright.
Brightness of shot images can be judged in playback mode.

Low Level Format
You should select the Low Level Format option if you suspect the
read/write speed of a memory card has dropped. A low level format
may require 2 to 3 minutes with some memory cards.
If the camera does not work properly, the inserted memory card may
be malfunctioning. 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. 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.

Setting the Shutter Speed
When you set the shutter speed in the shutter speed-priority AE mode, the
camera automatically selects an aperture value to match the brightness.
Faster shutter speeds allow you to catch an instantaneous image of a
moving subject, while slower speeds create a flowing effect and allow you
to shoot without a flash in dark areas.
z If the image would be underexposed (too dark) or overexposed (too bright)
and the correct exposure cannot be obtained, with the shutter button pressed
halfway, the aperture value display on the LCD monitor turns red. Turn the
multi control dial to adjust the shutter speed and display the aperture in white
characters on the display.
On the Shooting menu, set [Safety Shift] to [On]. The shutter speed is
adjusted automatically to give pictures the correct exposure (p. 52).
Pressing the
button, places the camera in exposure correction mode
(p. 69). Each time you press the button, you change modes. However, this is
different under Manual focus (p. 64).
z The nature of CCD image sensors is such that noise in the recorded image
increases at slow shutter speeds. This camera, however, applies special
processing to images shot at shutter speeds slower than 1.3 seconds to
50
eliminate the noise, thereby producing high-quality images. Nevertheless, a
certain amount of processing time may be required before the next image
can be shot.

Setting the Aperture
When you set the aperture in the aperture-priority AE mode, the camera
automatically selects a shutter speed to match the brightness.
Selecting a lower aperture value (opening the aperture) allows you to blur
the background and create a beautiful portrait.
A higher aperture value (closing it) brings the entire range from
foreground to background into focus. The larger the aperture value, the
greater the range of the image brought into clear focus.
z If the image would be underexposed (too dark) or overexposed (too bright)
and the correct exposure cannot be obtained, with the shutter button pressed
halfway, the shutter speed display on the LCD monitor turns red. Turn the
multi control dial to adjust the aperture and display the shutter speed in white

Shooting in a My Colors Mode
Mode Dial
A My Colors mode easily changes the colors in an image when it is shot,
allowing you to alter the balance between red, green and blue, transform
pale or tanned skin or change a color specified in the LCD monitor into a
different color. Since they work with both stills and movies, these modes
let you enjoy producing various image or movie effects.
However, depending on the shooting conditions, the images may appear
rough or you may not get the expected color. Before you try to photograph
important subjects, we highly recommend that you shoot trial images and
check the results. Moreover, the camera will record both the My Colors
image and the original unaltered image if you set [Save Original] (p. 54)
to [On].

Vivid Red
Use this option to emphasize red tints. It makes red subjects, such as
flowers or cars, more vivid.
Color Accent
Use this option to have only the color specified in the LCD monitor
remain and to transform all others to black and white.
Color Swap
Use this option to transform a color specified in the LCD monitor into
another. The specified color can only be swapped into one other color,
multiple colors cannot be chosen.
Custom Color
Use this option to freely adjust the color balance between red, green, blue
and skin tones*. It can be used to make subtle adjustments, such as making
blue colors more vivid or face colors brighter.
* The skin colors of non-human subjects may also be altered.
You may not obtain the expected results depending on the skin color.

Battery Handling
Battery Status Indications
The following icons or messages indicate the battery status on the LCD
monitor.
Battery charge is low. Recharge it as soon as possible if it will be
used for an extended period.
Change the battery pack
Battery charge is insufficient to operate the camera. Replace the
battery immediately.
Battery Performance (p. 139)
Battery Handling Precaution
‹
‹
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.
z Do not shake or place the battery charger upside down once the camera
battery is in it, as this may cause the battery to fall, damaging it.
z Although the battery pack's maximum operating range is 0 to 40 °C (32 to
104 °F), the optimal range is 10 to 30 °C (50 to 86 °F). At cold temperatures,
such as those experienced when skiing, performance will temporarily
decline, reducing the usable time before recharging. Under these conditions,
revive the battery by warming it in a pocket immediately before use.
However, ensure that there are no metallic items in the pocket that could
cause a short circuit, such as a key ring, etc.
125
11
Appendix
‹
This is a rechargeable lithium ion battery pack so there is no need to
completely use or discharge it before recharging. It can be recharged
at any time.
It takes approximately 90 minutes to bring a fully discharged battery
pack to full charge (based on Canon's testing standard). 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.
The use of the separately sold AC Adapter Kit ACK-DC20 is
recommended to power the camera during long usage
sessions (p. 128).
z Do not cover the battery charger with anything, such as a tablecloth, cushion
or blanket, when it is charging. Heat will build up internally and possibly lead
to fire.
z Do not charge Battery other than Battery Pack NB-2LH/NB-2L (sold
separately) with the supplied battery charger.
z The battery pack continues to discharge a small amount when left in the
camera (even with the power turned off) or battery charger. This shortens the
battery life. Remove the battery pack when the camera is not in use.
z Do not allow any metal objects such as keyrings to touch the
and
terminals (Fig. A), as this can damage the battery pack. To carry the battery
pack, or store it during periods of disuse, always replace the terminal cover
(Fig. B). When using Battery Pack NB-2LH, you can distinguish between a
discharged battery pack and fully charged battery pack by changing the
direction of the battery cover (Fig. C and D). Recharge the battery fully
before using it again.

Battery
Used Battery
Insert the battery
pack so the blue
area is visible.
Attach in the
opposite way of
Fig. C.
z Even charged battery packs continue to discharge naturally. You are advised
to charge the battery on the day of use, or one day before, to ensure a full
charge.
z Since storing a fully charged battery pack for long periods of time (about 1
year) can shorten its lifecycle or affect performance, store the battery in an
indoor location with low relative humidity and between the temperatures of 0
to 30 °C (32 to 86 °F). If you do not use the battery pack for long periods of
time, charge it fully and discharge it fully in the camera at least once a year
before returning it to storage.
z The camera consumes the battery charge when the power is on even when a
function is not being used. To conserve the battery charge, be particularly
attentive in turning the camera off.
z If the usable time of a battery pack diminishes substantially even when fully
charged, it should be replaced.
126
Handling the Memory Card
Write Protect Tab
The SD memory card has a write-protect tab. Sliding the tab downward
prevents recording of data and protects existing data (e.g. images). When
recording to, erasing from or formatting the memory card, slide the tab upward.
Ensure that the memory card is correctly oriented before inserting it in the
camera. It may damage the camera if inserted backward by mistake.
Cautions When Handling
Memory cards are high-precision electronic devices. Do not bend them,
apply force to them, or subject them to shocks or vibration.
‹ Do not attempt to disassemble or alter the memory card.
‹ Do not allow dirt, water or foreign objects to contact the terminals on the back
of the card. Do not touch the terminals with your hands or metal objects.
‹ Do not peel away the original label on the memory card or cover it with
another label or sticker.
‹ When writing on the memory card, use a soft point pen (e.g. felt-tip pen).
Using a sharp point pen (e.g. ball-point pen) or pencil may damage the
memory card or corrupt the recorded data.
‹ Since some or all of the data recorded on the memory card may be corrupted
or erased by electrical noise, static electricity, camera or card malfunction,
making a backup copy of important data is recommended.
‹ Moving a memory card rapidly between temperature extremes will cause
condensation to form in the card and lead to a malfunction. To avoid
condensation, place the memory card in a sealed plastic bag before moving
it into a different temperature zone and allow it to adjust slowly to the new
temperature.
‹ If condensation forms on the memory card, store it at room temperature until
the water droplets have evaporated naturally.
‹ 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 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 In outdoor settings in the daylight, the flash may not detect illumination
from the camera's built-in flash and may not fire.
z The flash may fire if another flash is being used in close proximity.
z The flash may not fire if there are no reflective items in its metering field.
z For continuous shooting, although the flash fires for the first shot, it
does not fire for subsequent shots.
z If the battery usage time has considerably diminished, wipe the battery
terminals well with a dry cloth as the terminals may be soiled with oil
from one's skin or other dirt.
z If the battery is used in cold regions (0 °C /32 °F or lower), you are
recommended to carry a spare lithium battery (CR123A or DL123).
Keep the spare battery warm in your pocket until immediately before
using it, and exchange it frequently with the battery in the flash.
z Leaving it in the flash could lead to the battery leaking and damaging
the flash. Remove the battery from the flash and store it in a dry and
cool location if you will not use it for extended periods.
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.

Photo Tips and Information
Regarding the AF Frame (p. 60)
AiAF* has a wide range of measuring for accurate focusing. AiAF focuses
on the object even if it is not exactly in the center of the frame.
* "Ai" stands for "Artificial intelligence" and "AF" stands for "Auto Focus."
Advanced Techniques for the Macro Mode (Basic)
Macro mode can make unique images when used with the zoom function.
For example, shooting a flower at maximum wide angle in Macro mode
allows the camera to bring both the flower and the background into focus.
However, shooting at maximum telephoto can throw the background out of
focus to make the flower stand out.

Tip for Using the Self-timer (p. 36)
Normally, the camera shakes a little when you press the shutter button.
Setting the self-timer to
delays the shutter release for 2 seconds and
allows the camera to stop shaking, thus preventing a blurred image.
Even better results can be obtained by placing the camera on a stable
surface or by using a tripod to shoot.
144
Exposure Compensation (p. 69)
This camera automatically adjusts the exposure to shoot images with the
optimal brightness. However, recorded images may sometimes be
brighter or darker than the actual image depending on the shooting
conditions. If this happens, adjust the exposure compensation manually.
zUnderexposure
The whole recorded image is dark, which makes
white elements of the image appear gray. Shooting
bright subjects or in backlit conditions may cause the
image to be underexposed. Adjust the exposure
compensation towards the (+) end.
zOptimal Exposure
zOverexposure
11
Appendix
The whole recorded image is bright, which makes black
elements of the image appear gray. Shooting dark subjects
or in dark places may cause the image to be overexposed.
Adjust the exposure compensation towards the (-) end.
ISO Speed (p. 74)
The ISO speed is the numeric representation of the camera's sensitivity to
light. The higher the ISO speed, the higher the sensitivity. A high ISO speed
allows you to shoot images in dark indoor or outdoor conditions without a flash
and also helps prevent blurred images due to camera shake. This is
convenient when shooting images in places where flash photography is
prohibited. The ISO speed setting makes full use of the available light,
resulting in images that convey the feel of the place they were shot.
