depleting it 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 electrical transformers for foreign travel as they will cause damage.
• The battery may develop a bulge.
This is a normal characteristic of the battery and does not indicate a problem.
However, if the battery bulges to the point where it will no longer fit into the
camera, please contact a Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
• If the battery is quickly depleted even after charging,
it has reached the end of its life span. Purchase a new battery.

Formatting Memory Cards
Before you use a new memory card or one that has been formatted in other
devices, you should format the card with this camera.
Formatting (initializing) a memory card erases all data on the memory card.
As you cannot retrieve the erased data, exercise adequate caution before
formatting the memory card.
Before formatting an Eye-Fi card, be sure to install the software contained on
the card to a computer.
Display the menu.
∆ Press the n button.
Choose [Format].

to choose [OK], then press the m button.
The memory card will be formatted.
When formatting ends, [Memory card
formatting complete] will appear on the screen.
∆ Press the m button.
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 erased. 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.
The total capacity of the memory card displayed in the formatting screen
may be less than indicated on the memory card.

∆ Since the shot is being taken while the
shutter sound plays, be careful not to move
the camera.
Does the length of the shutter sound change?
C

the length of the shutter sound may change.
• If the camera or subject moves while the shutter sound is playing, the recorded
image may be blurry.
If you shoot without pressing the shutter button halfway, the image may not
be in focus.

Taking Pictures (Smart Auto)
Under certain conditions, the icon that appears may not match the actual
scene. Especially when there is an orange or blue colored background (a
wall for example), [
] or the “Including Blue Skies” icons may appear and
it may not be possible to shoot with the appropriate color. If this happens, try
shooting in G mode (p. 70).
What if...
• What if white and gray frames appear when you point the camera toward
a subject?
When faces are detected, a white frame appears on the face of the main
subject, while gray frames appear on other detected faces. The frames will
follow the subjects within a certain range. If the main subject moves, however,
the gray frames will disappear.
• What if a blue frame appears when you press the shutter button halfway?
A blue frame appears when a moving subject is detected; the focus and
exposure will continuously adjust (Servo AF).
• What if the indicator blinks orange and
blinks on the screen?
Attach the camera to a tripod so that the camera does not move and blur the image.
• What if the camera does not play any sounds?
Pressing the l button while turning on the camera power will turn off all
sounds except for warning sounds. To turn the sounds on, press the n
button, choose the 3 tab, and then choose [Mute]. Press the qr buttons to
choose [Off].
• What if the indicator blinks orange, and [Raise the flash] appears on the screen?
Try raising the flash manually to shoot. The flash will automatically fire when
shooting.
• What if the image comes out dark even if the flash fired when shooting?
The subject is too far away for the flash to reach. Move the zoom lever toward j
and hold it until the lens stops moving. The camera will be at its maximum wide
angle setting and you can shoot within the effective flash range of approximately 75
cm – 3.5 m (2.5 – 11.5 ft.). Move the zoom lever toward i and hold it until the lens
stops moving. The camera will be at its maximum telephoto setting and you can
shoot within the effective flash range of approximately 1.0 – 2.0 m (3.3 – 6.6 ft.).
• What if the camera beeps once when the shutter button is pressed halfway?
Your subject may be too close. Move the zoom lever toward j and hold it until
the lens stops moving. The camera will be at its maximum wide angle setting
and you will be able to focus on subjects that are about 5 cm (2.0 in.) or more
away from the end of the lens. Move the zoom lever toward i and hold it until
the lens stops moving. The camera will be at its maximum telephoto setting and
you will be able to focus on subjects that are about 1 m (3.3 ft.) or more away
from the end of the lens.

• What if the lamp lights when the shutter button is pressed halfway?
To reduce red-eye and to assist in focusing, the lamp may light when shooting
in dark areas.
• What if the h icon blinks when you try to shoot?
The flash is charging. You can shoot when recharging ends.
What if two gray lines appear on the screen?
The area between the two gray lines will be recorded in a movie. Movies can be shot simply
by pressing the movie button, no matter what position the mode dial is in (p. 31).

Before using an Eye-Fi card, be sure to check whether Eye-Fi card use is
authorized in the country or territory of use (p. 16).
When you put a prepared Eye-Fi card into the camera, you can automatically
transfer your images wirelessly to a computer, or upload them to a web
service.
Image transfer is a function of the Eye-Fi card. For details on how to setup
and use the card, and concerning problems transferring images, please refer
to the Eye-Fi card user guide, or contact the manufacturer.
Please keep the following things in mind when using an Eye-Fi card.
• Even if you set [Eye-Fi trans.] to [Disable] (p. 158), the Eye-Fi card may
transmit radio waves. Be sure to remove the Eye-Fi card from the camera
before entering areas that prevent unauthorized transmission of radio waves,
such as hospitals and airplanes.
• If you have trouble transferring images, check the card or computer settings.
For details, refer to the user guide supplied with the card.
• Depending on the connection status of the wireless network, it may take time
to transfer images, or image transfer may be interrupted.
• Due to its transfer function, the Eye-Fi card may become hot.
• Battery consumption will be quicker than in normal use.
• Camera operations will be slower than in normal use. This may be resolved

Image is dark even though the flash fired (p. 26).
• Increase the ISO speed (p. 74).
• Shoot within an appropriate distance for flash photography (p. 71).
• Adjust the flash exposure compensation or the flash output (pp. 95, 96).
Image taken using the flash is too bright (overexposed).
• Shoot within an appropriate distance for flash photography (p. 71).
• Set the flash to ! (p. 64).
• Adjust the flash exposure compensation or the flash output (pp. 95, 96).
White dots appear on the image when shooting with the flash.
• Light from the flash has reflected off dust particles or other objects in the air.
Image appears rough or grainy.
• Shoot with the ISO speed on a lower setting (p. 74).
• Depending on the Shooting mode, when shooting in a high ISO speed the image may
appear rough or grainy (p. 55).
Eyes appear red (p. 94).
• Set the [Red-Eye Lamp] to [On] (p. 150). When shooting with the flash, the lamp (on the
front of the camera) lights (p. 42), 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.

Troubleshooting
Recording images to the memory card takes a long time, or continuous
shooting slows down.
• Perform a low-level format of the memory card in the camera (p. 51).
You cannot make settings for shooting functions or in the FUNC. menu.
• The items in which settings can be made differ depending on the shooting mode
(pp. 166 – 169).
Cannot operate buttons.
• When the mode dial is set to 9, some buttons cannot be used (p. 29).
Shooting movies
Correct shooting time does not display, or stops.
• Format the memory card in the camera, or use a memory card capable of recording at
high speeds. Even when the shooting time does not display properly, the recorded
video will be the length that it was actually shot (pp. 32, 103).

Memory card error (p. 51)
• If the same message appears even when a formatted memory card is installed in the
correct direction, contact a Canon Customer Support Help Desk (p. 17).
Insufficient space on card
• There is not enough free space on the memory card to shoot (pp. 24, 29, 31, 53, 69,
81, 101) or edit images (pp. 130 – 134). Erase the images (pp. 28, 30, 123) to open
space for new images, or insert an empty memory card (pp. 16, 18).
Change the battery pack. (pp. 16, 18)
No Image.

• Incompatible images cannot be magnified (p. 116), tagged as favorites (p. 127),
rotated (p. 129), edited (pp. 130 – 134), registered to the start-up screen (p. 145),
categorized (p. 125), or added to a print list (pp. 138, 140).
• Images manipulated on a computer, that have had their file name changed, or have
been taken with a different camera may not be magnified, tagged as favorites, rotated,
edited, registered to the start-up screen, categorized, or added to a print list.
• Movies cannot be magnified (p. 116), edited (pp. 130 – 134), added to a print list
(p. 138), or registered to the start-up screen (p. 145).
Invalid selection range
• When choosing the selection range (pp. 121, 124, 127), you tried to choose a starting
image that was after the last image or you tried to choose an ending image that was
before the starting image.
Exceeded selection limit
Y
P
O
• You chose more than 998 images in print settings. Choose less than 998 images
(p. 140).

images (approx. 1000) stored on the memory card. Use a commercially available USB
card reader to transfer the images. Insert the memory card into the printer’s card slot
to print.
Naming error!
• The folder or image could not be created because there is an image with the same file
name as the folder or image that the camera is attempting to create, or the highest
possible file number has already been reached. In the 3 menu, change [File
Numbering] to [Auto Reset] (p. 146) or format the memory card (pp. 22, 51).

• This error can occur if you hold the lens while it is in motion or when using it in a
location with excessive dust or sand in the air.
• If this error message continues to appear, contact a Canon Customer Support Help
Desk as there may be a problem with the lens.
A camera error was detected (Error number)
• If an error code appears directly after taking a picture, the shot may not have been
recorded. Check the image in Playback mode.
• If this error code reappears, note the Error number (Exx) and contact your Canon
Customer Support Help Desk as there may be a problem with the camera.

When shooting, the camera detects if it is held vertically or horizontally, and adjusts
settings accordingly for the best shot. It also detects orientation during playback, so you
can hold the camera in either orientation and it will automatically rotate images for correct
viewing.

Handling Precautions
• This camera is a high-precision electronic device. Do not drop it or subject
it to strong impacts.
• Never place the camera close to magnets, motors or other devices that
generate strong electromagnetic fields. Exposure to strong magnetic fields
may cause malfunctions or corrupt image data.
• If water droplets have fallen onto, or dirt is stuck on the camera or screen,
wipe with a dry soft cloth or eyeglass wiper. Do not rub or apply force.
• Never use cleaners containing organic solvents to wipe the camera or
screen.
• 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,
condensation may form on the internal or external surfaces of the camera.
To avoid condensation, put the camera in an airtight, resealable plastic bag
and let it adjust to temperature changes slowly before removing it from the
bag.
• If condensation has formed, stop using the camera immediately.
Continued use may damage the camera. Remove the battery and memory
card, and wait until the moisture has completely evaporated before
resuming use.
