• In the next few pages, the term “equipment” refers primarily to
the camera, its power supply accessories and the separately
sold compact power adapter.
7
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

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 a 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

the sun or strong light sources. There is a risk of damage to
eyesight.
CAUTIONS
• 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. Exposure to intense
sunlight and heat may cause the batteries to leak, overheat or
explode, resulting in fire, burns or other injuries. High
temperatures may also cause deformation of the casing.
Ensure that there is good ventilation when using the compact
power adapter to charge the battery pack or power the camera.
• Do not store the equipment in humid or dusty areas.
Storage in such areas could lead to fire, electrical shock or
other damage.
• Be careful not to bang the camera or subject it to strong
impacts or shocks that could lead to injury or damage the
equipment when wearing or holding it by the strap.
• Be careful not to cover the flash with your fingers or

smoke or noise. In addition, do not touch the surface of the
flash after taking several pictures in rapid succession. Either
action could result in burns.
11
• Do not operate the flash with dirt, dust or other items stuck
to its lens. The resulting heat build-up could damage the flash.
• 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.
12
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
and batteries or power cord (if connected) from the camera and
wait until the moisture evaporates completely before resuming
use.
Extended Storage
When not using the camera for extended periods of time, remove
the batteries from the camera or battery charger and store the
equipment in a safe place. Storing the camera for extended
periods with batteries installed will run down the batteries and
may damage the camera.
However, the date, time and other camera settings may reset to
default settings if the batteries have been removed for more than
three weeks.

Preparing the Camera
Installing the Batteries
The camera uses four AA-size alkaline batteries supplied
with the camera. You may also use separately sold nickel
metal hydride (NiMH) batteries.

4 Close the battery cover.
20
• We recommend that you use the separately sold AC
Adapter Kit ACK600 to power the camera during long
usage sessions (p. 184).
• The separately sold battery charger kit lets you use
rechargeable NiMH batteries to power the camera (p. 182).
• For important information, see Battery Performance (p. 202).
• For information about the Battery and Charger Kit and
AA-size rechargeable NiMH batteries, see the System
Map (separate from this guide).
Proper Battery Handling
• 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 Rechargeable Batteries (p. 182).
• Never use manganese or lithium batteries, as these battery
types may overheat in the camera.
• 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.
• 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 AA-size NiMH Battery Kit (a fourpiece set).
• While it is possible to use AA-size nickel-cadmium batteries,
performance is unreliable and their use is not recommended.
• Never mix unused and partially used batteries. Always load
four fresh (or fully recharged) batteries at the same time.
21
Preparing the Camera, Basic Functions
When the indicator next to the viewfinder blinks green, do
not turn off the power or open the battery cover. The
camera is writing, reading, erasing or transmitting an
image to or from the CF card.
• Be careful to load the batteries with their positive (+) and
negative (-) ends in the right direction.
• Never mix batteries of different types or from different
manufacturers. All four batteries should be identical.
• 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
reduced usage time.
• 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.
• 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.
Please note that the date, time and other camera settings may
reset to their default settings if the batteries have been
removed for more than three weeks.
WARNING
Never use damaged batteries or batteries whose outer seal is
completely or partially missing or peeled off, as there is risk

transmitting an image to or from the card. Do not
perform the following, for image data may be lost or
corrupted:
- Do not shake the camera.
- Do not turn off the power or open the CF card slot
cover.
• Be aware that use of CF cards whose contents have
been edited with another camera or with another
company’s software may cause the camera to operate
incorrectly.
• You are recommended to use CF cards that have been
formatted in your camera (p. 138). The card supplied
with the camera may be used without further formatting.
For more information on CF cards, see CF Cards and
Estimated Capacities (Recordable Images) (p. 203).
About CF Cards...
• CF 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 a CF card.
• Moving a CF card rapidly between temperature extremes will
cause condensation to form in the card and lead to a
malfunction. To avoid condensation, 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, store it at room
temperature until the water droplets have evaporated naturally.
• Do not use or store CF cards in the following locations.
- Locations subject to dust or sand
- Locations subject to high humidity and high temperatures

About the Histogram
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 to 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. 99).

Viewfinder
About the Autofocus Function
This camera employs AiAF (artificial intelligence
autofocus) technology which uses a broad metering field
to calculate the focal distance with high precision. It
delivers a crisp focus even when the photographic subject
is slightly off-center.
Image Seen in Viewfinder vs. Recorded Image
Usually the recorded image is wider than the image seen
in the viewfinder. Confirm the actual image size with the
LCD monitor.
The image recorded may differ from the image seen in the
viewfinder due to the distance between the viewfinder and
lens (especially with close-ups). If you use the viewfinder to
take close-up shots, portions of the close-up subject may not
appear in the recorded image. For this reason it is better to
use the LCD monitor when taking close-up shots.

Preparing the Camera, Basic Functions
Pressing fully releases the shutter.
• You will hear the shutter sound when
the shot is complete. Do not move the
camera until you hear this sound.
• The upper indicator blinks green while
the image is recording onto the CF
card.
45
• If the orange or yellow indicator blinks while you press
halfway, you can still press fully to take the shot.
• Images are first saved into the camera’s internal
memory before being recorded onto the CF card,
allowing the next images to be taken immediately as
long as sufficient space is available in the internal
memory.
• The beep and shutter sound can be set on/off in the Set
up menu (p. 172).
• Even when the shutter sound is set to [ ,
,
(On)]
(p. 157) and [Mute] is set to [On], no sound will be
heard.
• There is no shutter sound in movie mode.
• Shots cannot be taken while the flash is charging.
AF-Assist Beam
• The AF-assist beam will sometimes emit when the
shutter button is pressed halfway to assist focusing in
certain conditions, i.e. dark conditions.
• The AF-assist beam can be turned off (p. 168).
For example, if animals are your subject, turn off the
beam when shooting in the dark to avoid startling them.
However, please keep in mind the following facts.
- Turning the AF-assist beam off may make it more
difficult for the camera to focus in a dark place.
- The red-eye reduction lamp may emit when you press
the shutter button halfway even if the AF-assist beam
is turned off.
In order to prevent any lamp from emitting before the
flash fires, set both the red-eye reduction function and
the AF-assist beam to [Off] in the Shooting menu.

• Red-Eye Reduction
When shooting with the red-eye reduction function, the
subjects must look right at the red-eye reduction lamp
for this mode to be effective. Try asking them to look
directly at the lamp. Even better results can be obtained
by shooting with the lens set to a wide angle, increasing
the lighting in indoor settings or approaching closer to
the subject.
• Some settings are not available with certain shooting
modes. Please refer to Functions Available in Each
Shooting Mode (p. 212).
• 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.
• When shooting with the flash, the distance between the
camera and the subject should be at least 45 cm (1.5 ft.)
for normal shooting and 25 cm (10 in.) for Macro shooting.
• The fastest shutter speed for flash synchronization is
1/500 second. The camera automatically resets the
shutter speed to 1/500 second if a faster speed is
selected.

you must stitch the images together with your computer.
To create the panorama with your computer, use the
PhotoStitch software that came with your camera.
Framing a Subject
The PhotoStitch program detects the overlapping portions
of adjoining images and merges them. When shooting, try
to include a distinctive item (landmark) in the overlapping
portions.
72
Shooting
• 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.
• Do not include moving items in the overlap.
• Do not try to stitch images that include both distant and
close items. Objects may appear warped or doubled up.
• Make the brightness in each image consistent. The final
image will appear unnatural if the difference in brightness is too great.
• For good results, pan (swivel) the camera to take
successive shots.
• To shoot close-ups, slide the camera over the subject,
keeping it parallel as you move.

Advanced technique for the macro mode
Shooting
Macro mode can make unique images when used with the
zoom function. For example, shooting a flower at maximum
wide angle in Macro mode allows the camera to bring both
the flower and the background into focus. However, shooting
at maximum telephoto can throw the background out of
focus to make the flower stand out.
Macro with the wide angle zoom
Macro with the telephoto zoom
• Some settings are not available with certain shooting
modes. Please refer to Functions Available in Each
Shooting Mode (p. 212).
• Always use the LCD monitor to compose images in macro
mode. Shooting with the viewfinder is possible, though
images composed with the optical viewfinder may be offcenter (p. 42).
• When the lens is zoomed out to the wide angle end, the
recordable area is 56 × 42 mm (2.2 in. × 1.6 in.)*1, and
at telephoto end, it is 87 × 65 mm (3.4 in. × 2.6 in.)*2.
When the zoom is set between the telephoto end and
the wide-angle end, the distance from lens to subject is
the same as when the zoom is set to the telephoto end.
• The exposure may not be optimal when the flash is used
in macro mode.

The correct exposure has been set if the shutter speed and
aperture value show in white.
• If the aperture value shows in red, the image is under
exposed (insufficient light) or overexposed (too much
light). Adjust the shutter speed using the left and right
buttons until the aperture value display turns to white.
• 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.

ISO speed
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.

• Higher ISO speeds increase the image noise. To take
clean images, use as low an ISO speed as possible.

Appendix
Using the Battery Kits (Sold Separately)
Using Rechargeable Batteries
(Battery and Charger Kit CBK100)
Included are the battery charger and four rechargeable
AA-size NiMH (nickel metal hydride) batteries. Charge
batteries as shown below.
Indicator
To a power
outlet
• The indicator blinks while charging, then remains lit when
charging is finished.
• This charger can be used only to charge Canon AA-size
NiMH batteries. Please do not attempt to charge any
other type of batteries with this charger.
• Never mix new batteries together with batteries that
have been used in other devices.
• When recharging batteries from the camera, always
recharge all four of them at the same time.
• All batteries you place in the charger should be at
approximately the same charge state, and should have
been purchased at the same time. Don’t mix batteries
with different purchase dates or different charge states.
• Do 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.
• Do not recharge batteries in enclosed areas that tend to
retain heat.
182
183
Appendix
• Repeatedly 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.
• Wipe 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)
• You 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.
• 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.
• If 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 (fourpiece set).
• Leaving 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.
• It takes approximately 220 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).
• Charging time varies according to ambient temperature
and to the batteries’ initial charge state.
Using the AC Adapter Kit ACK600
This separately sold adapter kit allows you to operate the
camera continuously without worrying about having to
stop and replace the batteries. Use of the kit is
recommended when you are planning long sessions with
the camera, and whenever you connect the camera to a
computer.
Be sure that the camera is turned off before connecting or
disconnecting the compact power adapter.

Appendix
Please unplug the adapter from the power outlet when you
have finished using the camera.
Please do not attempt to use any AC adapter other than
AC Adapter Kit ACK600 with your camera. Use of a
different adapter may result in damage to the camera or
to the adapter.
185
Using the Lenses and Lens Adapter (Sold Separately)
The camera supports use of the separately sold Wide
Converter WC-DC52A, Tele-converter TC-DC52 and
Close-up Lens 250D (52 mm). In order to attach any of
these lenses, you also need to use the separately sold
Conversion Lens Adapter LA-DC52D.
• When attaching the wide converter, tele-converter
or close-up lens, 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.
• Never look into the sun or into strong light through
the wide converter, tele-converter or the close-up
lens, as this can result in blindness or impairment
of vision.
• If you use the flash when shooting with the wide
converter, the outer area of the recorded image
(especially lower right corner) will come out relatively
dark.
• When 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.
• When using the wide converter, please set the camera
to the wide angle end.
• The wide converter blocks part of the view through the
viewfinder.
186
Wide Converter WC-DC52
Use this converter for taking wide-angle shots. The wide
converter changes the focal length of the camera body’s
lens by a factor of 0.7 (The thread diameter is 52 mm.).
Tele-converter TC-DC52A
This 52 mm-threaded diameter magnifying conversion
lens is for taking telephoto shots. The lens changes the
focal length of the camera body’s lens by a factor of
1.75x.
Appendix
Close-Up Lens 250D (52 mm)
This lens makes it easy to take macro shots. With the
camera set to Macro mode, you can use this option to
shoot subjects that are 8 to 11 cm (3.1 to 4.3 in.) away
from the front of the lens (telephoto end).
