 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 result in
the failure of an image to be recorded or to be recorded in a way that is machine readable.
 The user’s unauthorized photographing or recording (video and/or sound) of people or copyrighted
materials may invade the privacy of such people and/or may violate others’ legal rights, including copyright
and other intellectual property rights. Note that restrictions may apply even when such photographing or
recording is intended solely for personal use.
 For information on camera warranty or Customer Support, please refer to the warranty information
provided with your camera User Manual Kit.
 Although the screen 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.
 When the camera is used over an extended period, it may become warm. This does not indicate damage.
