• Do not place the battery near a heat source or expose it to direct flame or heat.

The battery should not be immersed

in water or sea water.

Do not attempt to disassemble,

alter or apply heat to the battery.

Avoid dropping

or subjecting the battery to severe impacts that could damage the casing.

Use only recommended

battery and accessories.

Use of battery not expressly recommended for this equipment may cause explosions or leaks, resulting in fire, injury and damage to the surroundings.

In the event that a battery leaks and the eyes, mouth, skin or clothing contact these substances, immediately flush with water and seek medical assistance.

Disconnect the battery

charger and compact power adapter from both the camera and the power outlet after recharging or

when they are not in use to avoid fire and other hazards.

Do not place anything, such as tablecloths,

carpets, bedding or cushions, on top of the battery charger while it is charging.

Leaving the units plugged in for a long period of time may cause them to overheat and distort, resulting in fire.

• Use only the specified battery charger to charge the battery.

• The battery charger and 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 overheating and distortion which could result in fire or electrical shock.

• 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.

Do not trigger the flash in close proximity

to human or animal eyes. Exposure to the intense light produced by the flash may damage eyesight.

In particular, remain at least one meter (39 inches) away from infants when using the flash.

Keep objects that are sensitive

to magnetic fields

(such as

credit cards) away from the speaker of the camera.

Such items may lose data or stop working.

Be careful not to bang the camera or subject it to strong impacts or shocks when wearing

or holding it by the strap.

Be careful not to bump or strongly push the end of the lens.

The above-mentioned could lead to injury or damage the equipment.

Do not store the equipment in humid or dusty areas.

Do not allow metal objects (such as pins or keys) or dirt to contact the charger terminals or plug.

Such conditions could lead to fire, electrical shock or other damage.

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.

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 if not fully plugged into the outlet.

Do not use in locations with poor ventilation.

The above-mentioned can cause leakage, overheating or explosion, resulting in fire, bums or other injuries. High temperatures may also cause deformation of the casing.

When not using the camera for extended periods of time,

remove the battery from the camera or battery charger and

store the equipment in a safe place.

The battery can run down.

Appendix

• Do not connect compact power adapters or battery chargers to devices such as electrical transformers

for foreign travel

because it may lead to malfunctions, excessive heat generation,

fire, electric shock or injury.

Was ....

Do not operate the flash with dirt, dust or other items stuck to

the surface of the flash,

Be careful not to cover the flash with your fingers or clothing

when shooting.

The flash may be damaged and emit smoke or noise. The resulting heat build-up could damage the flash.

• Do not touch the surface of the flash after taking several pictures in rapid succession.

Doing so could result in burns.

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 data.

• When moving the equipment rapidly from cold to a hot place, you

can avoid condensation by placing the equipment in an airtight, resealable plastic bag and letting it adjust to temperature changes

slowly before removing it from the bag.

Moving the equipment rapidly from a cold to a hot place may cause condensation (water droplets) to form on its extemat and internal surfaces.

Stop using the camera immediately.

Continued use may damage the equipment.

Remove the memory card and battery or compact power adapter from the camera and wait until the moisture evaporates completely before resuming use.

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.

At low temperatures,

battery performance

may be reduced and

the low battery icon ([]) may appear earlier than usual.

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.

The battery may be short circuiting.

Do not allow any metal objects such as key rings to touch the ((_) and

((_) terminals (Fig. A). To carry the battery or store it during periods of disuse, always replace the terminal cover (Fig. B).

These conditions can damage the battery.

• You are recommended to use it in the camera until it is depleted and to store it in an indoor location with low relative humidity and between the temperatures of 0 - 30 °C (32 - 86

°F).

Storing a fully charged battery for long periods of time (about one year) may shorten its life cycle or affect its performance.

If you do not use the battery for long periods of time, charge it fully and discharge it in the camera about once a year before returning it to storage.

Since this is a lithium-ion battery,

you need not discharge

it

before recharging.

It takes approximately

2 hours 5 minutes to fully charge the

battery from

a depleted state (based on Carton's testing standards).

• .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.

You are advised to charge the battery on the day of use, or one

day before, to ensure a full charge.

• Even charged batteries continue to discharge naturally.

• If the performance of the battery diminishes

substantially

even when it is fully

charged,

its life has been exceeded and it

should be replaced.

• 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, do not use a pencil or ball-

point pen. Only use a soft point pen (e.g. felt-tip pen).

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

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.

Appendix

1209

• Please note that formatting (initializing) an memory card erases all data, including protected images.

You are recommended

to use memory cards that have been formatted in your camera.

The 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.

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.

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 card and does not ensure that its contents are completely deleted.

When disposing of a memory card, take precautions, such as physically destroying the card, to prevent personal information leaks.
