Test Shots
Before you try to photograph important subjects, we highly recommend that you
shoot several trial images to confirm that the camera is operating and being
operated 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.
Warning Against Copyright Infringement
Please note that Canon digital cameras are intended for personal use and should
never be used in a manner that infringes upon or contravenes international or
domestic copyright laws and regulations. Please be advised that in certain cases
the copying of images from performances, exhibitions, or commercial properties
by means of a camera or other device may contravene copyright or other legal
rights even if the image was shot for personal use.
Warranty Limitations
For information on your camera’s warranty, please refer to the Canon European
Warranty System (EWS) Booklet supplied with your camera.

extended period.
About the LCD Monitor
The LCD monitor is produced with extremely high-precision manufacturing
techniques. More than 99.99% of the pixels operate to specification. Less than
0.01% of the pixels may occasionally misfire or appear as red or black dots.
This has no effect on the recorded image and does not constitute a malfunction.

The nature of CCDs 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 eliminate the noise, thereby
producing high-quality images. (However, a certain amount of
processing time may be required before the next image can be
shot.)

The aperture adjusts the amount of light entering through the lens.
When you set the aperture value, 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 the aperture) brings the entire range from foreground to
background into focus. The larger the aperture value, the greater the

Battery Handling
Battery Charge
The following icon and message will display.
Battery charge is low. If
using the camera for an
extended period, replace the
batteries as soon as possible.
Change the batteries
Batteries are fully depleted and
the camera can no longer
operate. Replace the batteries
immediately.
Battery Handling Precautions
z This camera uses AA-size alkaline batteries or Canon AA-size
NiMH batteries (sold separately).
While it is possible to use AA-size nickel-cadmium batteries,
performance is unreliable and their use is not recommended.
z Since the performance of alkaline batteries may differ
according to brand, the operating time of the batteries you
purchase may not be as long as the batteries that came with
the camera.
z When using the camera under low temperature conditions or
over long periods, you are recommend to use of Canon AAsize NiMH batteries (sold separately).
Camera operating time may shorten at low temperatures when
alkaline batteries are used. Also due to their specifications, alkaline
batteries may expire faster than NiMH batteries.
z Never mix unused and partially used batteries.
The partially used batteries may leak.
z Do not install the batteries with their terminals (
and
)
reversed.
z Do not mix batteries of different types or from different
manufacturers.
Appendix
183
z Before installing the batteries, wipe the battery terminals well
with a dry cloth.
If the battery terminals are soiled with oil from one’s skin or other dirt,
the number of recordable images may be considerably diminished, or
the amount of time the camera can be used may be reduced.
z At low temperatures, battery performance may be reduced and
the low battery icon ( ) may appear earlier than usual.
Under these conditions, restore the battery performance by warming it
in a pocket immediately before use.
z Do not put the batteries into a pocket together with metallic
items such as a key ring.
The batteries may be short circuited.
z When not using the camera for long periods, remove the
batteries from the camera and store them separately.
If the batteries are left inside the camera, the camera may become
damaged from battery leakage.
WARNING
Never use damaged batteries or batteries whose outer seal is
completely or partially missing or peeled off, as there is risk that such
batteries may leak, overheat, or burst. Always check the seals on
store-bought batteries before loading them, as some batteries may
come with defective seals. Do not use batteries with defective seals.
Never use batteries that look like this.
Batteries with all or part of the seal (electrical insulation
sheath) peeled off.
The positive electrode (plus terminal) is flat.
The negative terminal is correctly formed (protruding from
the metal base), but the seal does not extend up over the
edge of the metal base.

terminals with your hands or metal objects.
z Do not peel away the original label on the memory card or
cover it with another label or sticker.
z When writing on the memory card, do not use a pencil or ballpoint pen. Only use a soft point pen (e.g. felt-tip pen).
z 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 Since some or all of the data recorded on the memory card
may be corrupted or erased by electrical noise, static
electricity, camera or memory card malfunction, making a
backup copy of important data is recommended.
Appendix
185
Formatting
z Please note that formatting (initializing) an memory card
erases all data, including protected images.
z You are recommended to use memory cards that have been
formatted in your camera.
• The memory card supplied with the camera may be used without
further formatting.
• When the camera is malfunctioning, a corrupted memory card might
be the cause. 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.
z 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.
z Be careful when transferring or disposing of a memory card.
Formatting or erasing the data on a memory card merely
changes the file management information on the memory card
and does not ensure that its contents are completely deleted.
When disposing of a memory card, take precautions, such as
physically destroying the memory card, to prevent personal
information leaks.

• After inserting the batteries, plug the charger (CB-5AH) into an outlet,
or attach the power cord to the charger (CB-5AHE, not shown) and
plug the other end into an outlet.
• Do not insert and charge additional batteries once charging has
begun.
• The charge indicator blinks while charging, then remains lit when
charging is finished.
z The CB-5AH/CB-5AHE battery charger can only be used to
charge Canon AA-size NiMH batteries NB-3AH and NB2AH. Please do not attempt to charge other type of battery.
z Do not mix batteries with different purchase dates or
different charge states. When recharging batteries, always
recharge both of them at the same time.
z Do not attempt to recharge fully charged batteries, as doing
so may reduce or impair battery performance. Also, do not
charge batteries for more than 24 consecutive hours.
z Do not recharge batteries in enclosed areas that tend to
retain heat.
z Do not recharge the batteries until the LCD monitor displays
the “Change the batteries” message. Repeatedly recharging
batteries before they become fully depleted may cause
batteries to lose capacity.
Appendix
187
z Wipe the battery terminals well with a dry cloth in the
following situations, as the terminals may be soiled with oil
from one’s skin or other dirt:
- If the battery usage time has considerably diminished
- If the number of recordable images has considerably
diminished
- When charging the batteries (insert and remove the
batteries two or three times before charging)
- When charging completes in a space of a few minutes
(the battery charger indicator remains lit)
z You may not be able to fully charge the batteries due to their
specifications right after purchase or after long periods of
nonuse. If this happens, after fully charging them, use the
batteries until their charge is depleted. After doing this
several times, battery performance will be restored.
z If you store batteries for a long period of time (about 1 year),
it is recommended that you fully deplete the batteries in the
camera and to then store them at room temperature (0 to
30°C/32 to 90°F) in low humidity. Storing them in a fully
charged condition can shorten their lifespan or degrade their
performance.
Again, if you do not use batteries for more than 1 year, fully
charge them once a year and deplete them in the camera
before storing them.
z If the battery usage time has become considerably low
despite wiping the terminals and charging them until the
battery charger indicator remains lit, this may indicate that
the batteries have reached the end of their lifespan. Replace
them with new batteries. If you are purchasing new batteries,
look for Canon AA-size NiMH batteries.
z Leaving batteries in the camera or charger may result in
damage from battery leakage. When not in use, remove the
batteries from the camera or charger and store them in a
cool, dry location.
188
Appendix
z It takes approximately 4 hours 40 minutes for the charger to
fully recharge the batteries after they have been depleted.
When two batteries are placed on each side of the charger,
recharging will take approximately two hours (as determined
by testing at Canon facilities).
Charge batteries in an environment where the temperature is
in the range of 0 to 35°C (32 to 95°F).
z The charging time varies according to the ambient
temperature and to the battery charge state.
z The battery charger may emit noise while charging. This is
not a malfunction.
z Battery/Charger Kit CBK4-200 can also be used.
Using the AC Adapter Kit ACK800
