Precautions
This digital camera is designed to perform optimally when used with genuine Canon
brand digital camera accessories (“Canon Brand Accessories”).
You may use non Canon Brand Accessories with this Digital Camera. However,
Canon makes no warranties concerning, and is not responsible for damages
resulting from, use of non Canon Brand Accessories.
Camera Body Temperature
If your camera is used for prolonged periods, the camera body may become warm. Please be aware
of this and take care when operating the camera for an extended period.
About the LCD Monitor
The LCD monitor is produced with extremely high-precision manufacturing techniques. More than
99.99% of the pixels operate to specification. Less than 0.01% of the pixels may occasionally misfire
or appear as red or black dots. This has no effect on the recorded image and does not constitute a
malfunction.
Video Format
Please set the camera’s video signal format to the one used in your region before using it with a TV
monitor (p. 154).
Language Setting
Please see page 23 to change the language setting.
Please read through the “ Read This First” section (p. 4) before using your camera.
Charging the Date/Time Battery
• The camera has a built-in rechargeable lithium battery that maintains the date, time and other
camera settings. This battery recharges when the main battery pack is inserted into the camera.
When you first purchase the camera, place a charged battery pack in it or use the AC adapter
kit (sold separately) for at least 4 hours to charge the date/time battery. It will charge even when
the camera power is set to Off.
• If the Set Date/Time menu appears when the camera power is turned on, it means that the
date/time battery charge is depleted. Recharge it as described above.

precautions described below. Always ensure that the camera is operated correctly.
• The safety precautions noted on the following pages are intended to instruct you in
the safe and correct operation of the camera and its accessories to prevent injuries or
damage to yourself, other persons and equipment.
• In the next few pages, the term “equipment” refers primarily to the camera, its
power supply accessories and an optional compact power adapter.
4
Warnings
• Do not aim the camera directly into the sun or at other intense light sources which
could damage your eyesight.
• 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.
• Store this equipment out of the reach of children and infants. Accidental damage to
the camera or batteries by a child could result in serious injury. In addition, placement
of the strap around the child’s neck could result in asphyxiation.
• Do not attempt to disassemble or alter any part of the equipment that is not expressly
described in this guide. Disassembly or alteration may result in high-voltage electrical
shock. Internal inspections, alterations and repairs should be conducted by qualified
service personnel authorized by your camera distributor or a Canon Customer Support

• Be careful not to cover the flash with your fingers when shooting. In addition, do not
touch the surface of the flash after taking several pictures in rapid succession. Either
action could result in burns.
• If your camera is used for prolonged periods, the camera body may become warm.
Please take care when operating the camera for an extended period as your hands
may experience a burning sensation.
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

• This is a lithium ion battery pack so there is no need to completely use or
discharge it before recharging. It can be recharged at any time.
• It takes approximately 80 minutes to bring a fully discharged battery pack to full
charge (based on Canon’s testing standard). Charge it within a temperature range
of 5 to 40º C (32 to 104º F).
• Charging times will vary according to the surrounding humidity and battery pack
charge state.
• You may hear a noise during charging. This is not a malfunction.

Preparing the Camera, Basic Functions
Recharge Battery Pack NB-2L (supplied) with Battery Charger CB-2LT or CB-2LTE before you use the
camera for the first time and subsequently when the “Charge the battery pack” message is displayed.
Charging the Battery Pack (continued)
Battery Pack Handling Precautions
• Keep the battery pack and camera terminals (
) clean at all times. Dirty
terminals may cause a poor contact between the battery pack and camera. Polish
the terminals with a tissue or a dry cloth before charging or using the battery pack.
• Do not cover the battery charger with anything, such as a tablecloth, cushion or
blanket, when it is charging. Heat will build up internally and possibly lead to fire.
• Do not charge batteries other than Battery Pack NB-2L with the supplied battery
charger.
• The battery pack continues to discharge a small amount when left in the camera
(even with the power turned off) or battery charger. This shortens the battery life.
Remove the battery pack when the camera is not in use.
• Do not allow any metal objects such as keyrings to touch the “+” and “-”
terminals (Fig. A), as this can damage the battery pack. To carry the battery pack,
or store it during periods of disuse, always replace the terminal cover (Fig. B) or
place it in the supplied case and store it in a cool, dry place. Recharge it fully
before using it again.
Fig.A

Fig.B
Even charged battery packs continue to discharge naturally. You are advised to
charge the battery on the day of use, or one day before, to ensure a full charge.
Since storing a fully charged battery pack for long periods of time (about 1 year)
can shorten its lifecycle or affect performance, you are recommended to use the
battery pack in the camera until it is completely discharged and to store it at
normal temperature (23° C/ 73° F or less). If you do not use the battery pack for
long periods of time, charge it fully and discharge it fully in the camera at least
once a year before returning it to storage.
The camera consumes the battery charge when the power is on even when a
function is not being used. To conserve the battery charge, be particularly
attentive in turning the camera off.
Although the battery pack’s maximum operating range is 0 to 40º C (32 to 104º F),
the optimal range is 10 to 30º C (50 to 86º F). At cold temperatures, such as those
experienced when skiing, performance will temporarily decline, reducing the
usable time before recharging.

CF Card Handling Precautions
• CF cards are high-precision electronic devices. Do not bend, force, or subject
them to shocks or vibration.
• Do not attempt to disassemble or alter a CF card.
• 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.
• Place the CF card in the supplied case for storage.
• 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 replaying.
Using the Soft Case (Optional)
Use the soft case SC-PS900 (optional) for storing the camera, batteries and
CF card.
• Soft case appearance may differ in some regions.

• Charging the Date/Time Battery
• The camera has a built-in rechargeable lithium battery that maintains the
date, time and other camera settings. This battery recharges when the main
battery pack is inserted into the camera. When you first purchase the camera,
place a charged battery pack in it or use the AC Adapter Kit ACK700 (sold
separately) for at least 4 hours to charge the date/time battery. It will charge
even when the camera power is set to Off.
• If the Set Date/Time menu appears when the camera power is turned on, it
means that the date/time battery charge is depleted. Recharge it as described
above.

About the Histogram
The histogram is a graph that allows you to judge the brightness of the recorded
image. The greater the bias toward the left in the graph, the darker the image. The
greater the bias toward to the right, the brighter the image. If the image is dark,
adjust the exposure compensation to a positive number. Similarly, adjust the
exposure compensation to a negative number if the image is bright (p. 79).

Notice Concerning Shooting
When using this camera to shoot scenes containing extremely bright subjects, a
vertical, red bar of light may appear on the LCD monitor. This is a normal
occurrence in devices containing CCDs and does not constitute a malfunction.
This red bar of light will not be recorded when shooting still photos, but it will
be recorded when shooting movies.
31
Using the Viewfinder to Shoot
Setting the LCD monitor to Off (p.28) and using the optical viewfinder can help
conserve power while shooting.
• The viewfinder has a field of vision of
approximately 82% of the actual shooting
image.

○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○
Image Seen in Viewfinder vs. Recorded Image
Please note that the actual image may differ from the image seen in the optical
viewfinder due to the physical separation between the viewfinder and lens. This is
called the parallax phenomenon and is more noticeable the closer the subject is to
the lens. In some cases, portions of images shot up close that appear in the
viewfinder will not appear in the recorded image. You are recommended to use the
LCD monitor to shoot images up close.
Shooting with an Off-Center AF Frame Selected
You should always use the LCD monitor to compose images when you have selected
an off-center AF frame. When setting the AF frame to the desired position to shoot
an image, please use the LCD monitor (See Selecting an AF Frame, p. 74).

Initial Shooting
Mode
Changing the File Format
The recording file format can be switched to the RAW format before shooting the
image.
With the standard JPEG file format, the camera processes images after capturing
them to produce optimal results. The JPEG format compresses images so that more
can be stored on a single CF card. However, the compression is irreversible,
meaning that the original image data cannot be recovered after processing. In
contrast, the RAW format records the image data as captured by the camera’s CCD
without further processing. RAW images are compressed, but the compression is
reversible* so that a high-quality image can be obtained from the decompressed
file without any loss of image quality. In addition, although a RAW file is larger than
an equivalent JPEG file, it is still only approximately one-quarter the size* of an
uncompressed RGB TIFF format file, making it relatively compact.
With standard uncompressed file formats, such as RGB TIFF, images are processed
in the camera and require further processing by retouching software to adjust the
image parameters, which reduces image quality. With the RAW format, however,
the original data can be used in special software** to adjust the image parameters
(white balance, contrast, sharpness and saturation) making it possible to maintain
the image quality while making changes. The resolution (2272 x 1704) and
compression settings cannot be adjusted for these images.
* As measured by Canon’s testing standard.
** The bundled software can be used to open or adjust the parameters of images recorded in the RAW file
format. Please consult the Software Starter Guide for details.

• The flash fires twice. A pre-flash will fire and will be followed by the main flash.
The pre-flash is used by the camera to obtain the subject’s exposure data so that
the main flash can be set to the optimal intensity for the shot.
• 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.
• The flash may take up to approximately 10 seconds to charge in some cases.
Actual times will vary according to usage and the battery charge.
• The flash fires with automatic adjustments when [Flash Adjust] is set to [Auto] in

• The flash setting is saved when the camera is turned off in the , ,

• When shooting with [Slow Synchro] set to [On], we recommend the use of a
tripod to prevent camera shake.
• When shooting with the flash, light may reflect off dust particles or insects in the
air and appear as white dots or white asterisks on the image. This occurs more
frequently in the following conditions:
– When shooting at the wide-angle end.
– When shooting with a high aperture value in the aperture-priority AE mode.
This is a phenomenon that occurs with digital cameras and does not constitute a
malfunction.

Setting the Shutter Speed
When you set the shutter speed in the shutter speed-priority 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.

• 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.

Setting the Aperture
When you set the aperture in the aperture-priority AE mode, the camera

aperture value (opening the aperture) allows you to fade the background and

the greater the range of the image brought into clear focus.

About Printing
This camera supports direct printing. By connecting the camera to an optional
printer or Bubble Jet printer (sold separately) that supports the direct print function,
you can send the images from the CF card directly to the printer using the camera
buttons. Or, you can specify the images on your CF card you want to print and
how many copies you want (DPOF* Print Settings), and then take the CF card to a
participating photo lab to have them printed out later.
