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 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.
If Condensation Forms Inside the Camera
Stop using the camera immediately if you detect
condensation. Continued use may damage the
equipment. Remove the CF card, batteries or
compact power adapter from the camera and wait
until the moisture evaporates completely before
resuming use.

(Recordable Images) (p. 151).
zYou are recommended to use CF cards that
have been formatted in your camera (p. 18).
The card supplied with the camera may be
used without further formatting.
Proper Battery Handling
z Use AA-size alkaline or Canon AA-size NiMH batteries
(sold separately) only. For information on handling the
AA-size rechargeable NiMH batteries, see Using the
Power Kits (Sold Separately) (p. 140).
z Never use manganese or lithium batteries, as these
battery types may overheat in the camera.
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 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. If you are using the camera in cold areas
or for a long time, we recommend using Canon’s AA-size
NiMH Battery Kit (a four-piece set).
1. Preparing the Camera
15
z While it is possible to use AA-size nickel-cadmium
batteries, performance is unreliable and their use is not
recommended.
z Never mix unused and partially used batteries.
Always load four fresh (or fully recharged) batteries
at the same time.
z Be careful to load the batteries with their positive (+)
and negative (-) ends in the right direction.
z Never mix batteries of different types or from
different manufacturers. All four batteries should be
identical.
z Before inserting the batteries, wipe the battery terminals
well with a dry cloth. Oil from one's skin or other dirt may
cause a considerable reduction in the number of
recordable images or reduce usage time.
z Battery performance deteriorates at low temperatures
(especially with alkaline batteries). If you are using the
camera in cold areas and batteries are running down
faster than they should, you may be able to restore
performance by placing batteries in an inner pocket to
warm them up prior to use. But be careful that you don’t
put the batteries into a pocket together with a metal key
chain or other metallic objects, as these objects may
cause batteries to short-circuit.
16
1. Preparing the Camera
z If you do not plan to use the camera for a long time,
remove the batteries from the camera and store them in
a safe place. Batteries may leak and damage the camera
if left installed during prolonged periods of non-use.
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.
Battery Status Indications
The following icons or messages indicate the battery
status on the LCD monitor (or viewfinder).
Change the
batteries
Batteries are beginning to run low. Replace or
recharge the batteries if you wish to continue
using the camera.
Batteries are fully depleted and the camera
can no longer operate. You should replace the
batteries immediately.
CF Card Handling Precautions
z CF cards are high-precision electronic devices. Do
not bend, force, or subject them to shocks or
vibration.
z Do not attempt to disassemble or alter a CF card.
z Moving a CF card rapidly between temperature
extremes may cause condensation to form in the
card, leading to potential malfunctions. To avoid
condensation formation, place the CF 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
CF card, put it aside until the water droplets have
evaporated completely.
z Place the CF card in the supplied case for storage.
z Do not use or store CF cards in the following types
of locations.
- Locations subject to dust or sand
- Locations subject to high humidity and high
temperatures
Microdrives are a recording medium with a hard
disk. Their merits are a large capacity and a low
price per megabyte of capacity. However, they can
be more susceptible to vibrations and shocks than
CF cards, which use durable flash memories.
Please be careful, therefore, not to subject the
camera to vibrations or shocks when using a
microdrive, especially while recording or playing
back.

Formatting a CF Card
You should always format a new CF card or one from
which you wish to erase all images and other data.
a
c
b
Please note that formatting (initializing) a CF
card erases all data, including protected
images and other file types. Please check the
contents of the CF card before formatting it.

5. Useful Shooting Functions
You can achieve a better blurring effect of the
background by making sure the upper half of your
subject fills the entire LCD monitor (or viewfinder).
You can enhance the blurring effect of the
background even more by setting the lens to its
telephoto end setting.
The camera shake warning icon
may appear on
the LCD monitor (or viewfinder) since slower shutter
speeds are frequently used in this mode. If this
happens, affix the camera to a tripod.
The shutter speed slows down. Even if you use the
flash, tell your subjects not to move for a few
moments.
If the Night Scene mode is used to shoot mid-day
shots, the same effects as with the
mode can
be obtained.
The slow synchro option automatically turns on.
Noise in the image may be more apparent with dark
subjects.
Always use a tripod to prevent camera shake.
Shooting Panoramic Images (Stitch Assist)
Use this mode to shoot a series of overlapping
frames for merging (stitching) into a large
panoramic image using a computer.
Please use the bundled PhotoStitch program
to merge the images on a computer.
Framing a Subject
PhotoStitch detects the overlapping portions of
adjoining images and merges them. When
composing shots, try to include a distinctive item
(landmark, etc) in the overlapping portions.
Š Compose each frame so that it overlaps 30 to
50% of the adjoining image. Try to keep the
vertical misalignment to within 10% of the
image height.
Š Do not include moving items in the overlap.
Š Do not try to stitch images that include both
distant and close subjects. Objects may
appear warped or doubled up.
Š Make the brightness in each image consistent.
The final image will appear unnatural if the
difference in brightness is too great.
Š For good results, pan (swivel) the camera to
take successive shots.
5. Useful Shooting Functions

Š To shoot close-ups, slide the camera over the
subject, keeping it parallel as you move.

z The maximum movie recordable time in one

maximum recording capacity is 1 GB. These
figures will vary according to the type of CF
cards and their capacity.
When recording time reaches 1 hour, when the
CF card is about to become full or when the file
size is about to reach 1 GB, the remaining
shooting time displayed on the lower right
corner of the LCD monitor (or viewfinder) will
blink red and recording will stop automatically
approximately 10 seconds later.
z Recording times and recording capacities may
vary according to your camera usage (shooting
conditions, exterior conditions, etc.) and the
capacity of your CF card. When the camera's
internal available memory is low, the ! mark
appears in the lower right corner of the LCD
monitor (or viewfinder), indicating that shooting
will automatically end soon, regardless of the
remaining shooting time and recording capacity.
54
5. Useful Shooting Functions
If the ! mark frequently appears, try the following
methods to solve the problem.
- Format the CF card before recording (p. 18).
- Avoid using the zoom during shooting.
- Set the resolution to
(320 x 240) or set the
frame rate to
(15 fps).
- Use a high speed CF card (such as the CF512MSH CF card).
zThe recording time may not display properly
during shooting or filming may stop
unexpectedly with the following types of CF
cards.
- Slow recording cards
- Cards formatted on a different camera or a
computer
- Cards which have had images recorded and
erased repeatedly
Although the recording time may not display
properly during shooting, the movie will be
recorded correctly on the CF card. Recording
time will display properly if you format the CF
card in this camera (excluding slow recording
CF cards).
zBe careful not to touch the microphone while
shooting.
zIf the indicator blinks after a shot, this
indicates that the movie is being written to the
CF card. You cannot shoot again until it stops
blinking.
zWhen the camera's internal temperature
rises,
appears in red on the lower left
corner of the LCD monitor (or viewfinder). If
the temperature continues to rise, shooting
ends automatically to protect the CF card or
micro drive from overheating, the
[Overheated! Shutting down.] message
appears and the camera powers off. If this
happens, store the camera for approximately
30 minutes and wait until it has completely
cooled down before resuming use. The CF
card or micro drive may heat up but this does
not constitute a malfunction. However, for still
image shooting, there is no need to wait 30
minutes before resuming use.

Setting the Shutter Speed
When you set the shutter speed in the shutter speedpriority 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 Adjust the shutter speed using the W or X arrow
when the image is underexposed (insufficient light)
or overexposed (too much light) and the correct
exposure cannot be obtained.
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 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.
z The aperture value and shutter speed change
according to the zoom state as follows.
Wide Angle End*1
Telephoto End*2
Aperture value
f/2.8 – f/5.0
f/5.6 – f/8.0
f/3.1 – f/5.6

z The fastest shutter speed for flash synchronization
is 1/250 second. The camera automatically resets
the shutter speed to 1/250 second if a faster speed
is selected.

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 fade 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 Adjust the aperture value using the W or X arrow
when the image is underexposed (insufficient light)
or overexposed (too much light) and the correct
exposure cannot be obtained.
z Some aperture values cannot be selected
depending on the zoom position.
z In this mode, the maximum shutter speed with
synchronized flash is 1/250 second. The aperture
value setting may therefore be changed
automatically to match the synchronized flash
speed even if its value was set previously.

Manually Setting the Shutter
Speed and Aperture
You can manually set the shutter speed and aperture
to achieve a particular effect. This is convenient for
shooting fireworks and other images where it is
difficult to set the correct exposure automatically.
Selecting an AF Frame

matches the selected shutter speed and aperture
value. When you select a fast shutter speed or
shoot a subject in a dark place and set the flash to
(Flash On (red-eye reduction) or (flash On)
the image will always be bright.
z When you press the shutter button halfway, the
difference between the standard exposure* and the
selected exposure appears on the LCD monitor (or
viewfinder). If the difference is more than 2 stops,
"-2" or "+2" appears on the LCD monitor (or

Using Conversion Lenses (Sold Separately)
Conversion Lens Adapter LA-DC52E and Lens Hood
LH-DC20 are included in the separately sold Lens
Adapter/Hood Kit LAH-DC10.
The camera supports use of the separately sold
Wide Converter WC-DC52A and Tele-converter TCDC52B. In order to attach any of these lenses, you
also need to use the separately sold Conversion
Lens Adapter LA-DC52E (included with LAH-DC10).
When shooting in backlit conditions without the flash
and at the wide angle end, the use of the lens hood is
recommended to prevent external light from entering
the lens.
Warning
z When attaching the wide converter or teleconverter, be sure to screw it on securely. If they
come loose, they may fall from the lens adapter,
posing risk of injury from shattered glass.
z Never look into the sun or into strong light
through the wide converter or tele-converter as
this can result in blindness or impairment of
vision.
zIf you use the built-in flash when shooting with
the wide converter, the outer area of the
recorded image (especially the bottom part of
the image) will come out relatively dark.
zWhen using the wide converter, please set
the camera to the wide angle end.
zWhen using the tele-converter, please set the
focal length to the telephoto end. At other
zoom settings, the image will appear as if its
corners have been cut off.

Using the Power Kits (Sold Separately)
Using Rechargeable Batteries
(Battery and Charger Kit CBK4-200)
Included are the battery charger and four
rechargeable AA-size NiMH (nickel metal hydride)
batteries. Charge batteries as shown below.
Charge Indicator
zThe charge indicator blinks while charging,
then remains lit when charging is finished.
zThis charger can be used only to charge
Canon AA-size NiMH batteries NB-2AH.
Please do not attempt to charge NB-2AH
batteries in any other type of charger.
zNever mix new batteries together with
batteries that have been used in other devices.
zWhen recharging batteries from the camera,
always recharge all four of them at the same
time.
140
Appendix
zAll batteries you place in the charger should
be at approximately the same charge state,
and should have been purchased at the same
time. Do not mix batteries with different
purchase dates or different charge states.
zDo 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.
zDo not recharge batteries in enclosed areas
that tend to retain heat.
zRepeatedly recharging batteries before they
become fully depleted may cause batteries to
lose capacity. Do not recharge the batteries
until the LCD monitor displays the "Change
the batteries" message.
zWipe 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 matter of a
few minutes (the battery charger indicator
remains lit)
zYou may not be able to fully charge the
batteries due to their specifications right after
purchase or after long periods of non-use. If
this happens, use the batteries until their
charge is depleted before charging them
again. After doing this several times, battery
performance will be restored.
zSince storing fully charged batteries for long
periods of time (about 1 year) can shorten
their lifecycle or affect performance, you are
recommended to use the batteries in the
camera until they are completely discharged
and to store them at normal temperature
(23 °C/73 °F) or less. If you do not use the
batteries for long periods of time, charge them
fully and discharge them fully in the camera at
least once a year before returning them to
storage.
zIf battery usage time is considerably low
despite their terminals being wiped and the
battery charger's indicator remaining lit, it is
possible that the batteries have reached the
end of their lifespan. Switch to different,
unused batteries. If you are purchasing new
batteries, look for Canon's AA-size NiMH
batteries NB4-200 (a NB-2AH four-battery
set).
zLeaving batteries in the camera or charger
may damage it causing battery leakage.
Remove batteries from the camera or charger
and store in a dry cool location when not in
use.
Appendix
141
Š It takes approximately 250 minutes for the
charger to fully recharge the batteries (as
determined by testing at Canon facilities).
Please do not charge batteries in areas where
the temperature is outside the range of 0 to
35 °C (32 to 95 °F).
Š Charging time varies according to ambient
temperature and to the batteries' initial charge
state.
Š The battery charger may emit noise while
charging. This is not a malfunction.
Š Battery/Charger Kit CBK100 can also be used.
Use Canon AA-size batteries NB-1AH with the
charger included in the CBK100 kit.

Appendix
Compact Power Adapter
You should use the separately sold Compact Power
Adapter CA-PS700 when using the camera for long
periods of continuous use or for connecting to a
computer or printer.
2 Open the terminal cover and connect
the DC plug of the compact power
adapter to the camera's DC IN
terminal.
1 Attach the power cord to the

Replacing the Date Battery
If the Set Date/Time menu appears when you
turn on the camera power, the date battery
charge is low and the date and time settings
have been lost. Please replace the battery with
a commercially available lithium coin battery
(CR1220) with the following procedures.
1 Turn off the power
2
Please note that the first date battery may appear
to expire relatively quickly after you purchase the
camera. This is because it is installed in the camera
at the point of manufacture, not when you make the
purchase.
Warning
Be particularly careful to keep the date batteries out
of the reach of children. Seek medical assistance
immediately if a child swallows a battery since
corrosive battery fluids could damage the stomach
or intestinal wall.

Photo Tips and Information
ISO Speed (p. 81)
Tip for Using the Self-timer (p. 49)
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.
Normally, the camera shakes a little when you press
the shutter button.
Setting the self-timer to
delays the shutter release
for two 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.
ISO 50 equivalent
ISO 400 equivalent.
Histogram Function (p. 24)
The histogram is a graph that allows you to judge the
brightness of the shot image. 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. Similarly, adjust
the exposure compensation to a negative value if the
image is too bright (p. 78).

Managing Image Files (p. 110)
About File and Folder Numbers
Images are assigned file numbers from 0001 to
9900, and folders are assigned folder numbers from
100 to 998 (Folder numbers cannot contain 99 in the
last two digits).

Folder File Capacity
Each folder usually contains up to 100 images.
However, since images shot in Continuous mode and
Stitch Assist mode are always saved into the same
folder, a folder may contain more than 100 images.
The number of images may also exceed 100 if a
folder contains images copied from a computer or
images shot with other cameras.
Please note, however, that the images in folders
containing 2001 or more images cannot be played
back in this camera.
How to Adjust the Exposure (p. 78)
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 (p. 78).
Underexposure
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.
Optimal Exposure
Appendix
155
Overexposure
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.
