Using the battery and charger effectively
• Charge the battery on the day, or the day before, it will be used.
Charged batteries continue to discharge naturally even if they are not used.
Attach the cover to a charged battery
so that the S mark is visible.
• How to store the battery for long periods.
Deplete and remove the battery from the camera. Attach the terminal cover and
store the battery. Storing a battery without depleting it for long periods of time
(about one year) may shorten its life span or affect its performance.
• The battery charger can also be used when abroad.
The charger can be used in regions that have 100 – 240 V (50/60 Hz) AC
power. If the plug does not fit the outlet, use a commercially available plug
adapter. Do not use devices such as electrical transformers for foreign travel
because they will cause malfunctions.
• If the battery is quickly depleted even after charging, it has reached the end of its
life span.
Purchase a new battery.

allowing you to check the composition (Night Display function). However, the
brightness of the image on the screen, and the brightness of the actual
image recorded may be different. Noise may appear and the movement of
the subject on the screen may appear somewhat jagged. This has no effect
on the recorded image.

Formatting Memory Cards
About formatting
• The supplied memory card has already been formatted.
• When the [Memory card error] message appears, or when the camera does not
work correctly, formatting the memory card may solve the problem. Copy the
images from the memory card to a computer or other device before formatting.
• Formatting or erasing data on a memory card merely changes the file
management information on the card and does not ensure its contents
are completely deleted. Be careful when transferring or disposing of a
memory card. When disposing of a memory card, take precautions such
as physically destroying the card to prevent personal information leaks.
• When audio (p. 135) is recorded to the memory card, _ will display in
the right hand corner of the screen in Step 2. Formatting the card will
delete audio as well.
Y
P
O
• The total capacity of the memory card displayed in the formatting screen
may be less than indicated on the memory card.
• Low level formatting may take longer than standard formatting, since all
recorded data are erased.
• You can stop a low level format of a memory card by selecting [Stop].
You can still use a memory card without problem when formatting is
halted, but its data will be erased.

Eyes appear red (p. 92).
• Set the [Red-Eye Lamp] to [On] (p. 142). When shooting with the flash, the lamp
(on the front of the camera) lights (p. 40), and for approximately 1 second while
the camera is reducing red-eye, it is not possible to shoot. It is more effective if
the subject is looking directly at the lamp. Even better results can be obtained by
increasing the lighting in indoor settings or approaching closer to the subject.

Handling Precautions
Equipment
• This camera is a high-precision electronic device. Do not drop it or subject
it to strong impact.
• Never place the camera close to magnets or motors that generate strong
electromagnetic fields. Exposure to strong magnetic fields may cause
malfunctions or corrupt image data.
• If water droplets have fallen or dirt is stuck on the camera or LCD monitor,
wipe with a dry soft cloth or eyeglass wiper. Do not rub or apply force.
• Never use cleaners including organic solvents to wipe the camera or LCD
monitor.
• Use a commercially available blower brush to remove dust from the lens.
For stubborn dirt contact the closest Canon Customer Support Help Desk
as listed on the customer support leaflet supplied with your camera.
• When you move the camera rapidly from cold to hot temperatures,
