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 o 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 for long periods of time (about a year) without 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-Ficard, be sure to install the software contained on the card to a computer.

Display the menu.

Press thenbutton.

Choose [Format].

Press theqrbuttons to choose the3 tab.

Press theopbuttons or turn thedialto choose [Format], then press them button.

A confirmation screen will appear.

Press the opbuttons or turn thedialto choose [OK], then press them 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.

22

Pressing the Shutter Button

To take images that are in focus, be sure to first press the shutter button lightly (halfway) to focus, then press fully to shoot.

Press halfway (lightly to focus).

Press lightly until the camera beeps twice and AF frames appear where the camera focused.

Press fully (all the way to shoot).

The camera plays the shutter sound and takes the shot.

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?

Since the time required to shoot differs according to the scene you want to take, 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.

23

Taking Pictures (Smart Auto)

Since the camera can determine the subject and shooting conditions, you can let it automatically select the best settings for the scene and just shoot. The camera can also detect and focus on faces, setting the color and brightness to optimal levels.

Turn on the camera.

Press the ON/OFF button.

The start-upscreen will appear.

Choose A mode.

Set the mode switch toA.

When you point the camera toward the subject, the camera will make a slight noise as it determines the scene.

The icon for the determined scene will appear in the upper right of the screen. The camera will focus on detected faces and display frames on them.

Black bars will appear on the left and right sides of the screen. These areas cannot be recorded when shooting.

Shoot using the focus lock or AF lock (pp. 81,86).

157

Troubleshooting

Even when you press the shutter button halfway, the AF frame does not appear, and the camera does not focus.

If you center on the light and dark contrasting area of the subject and push the shutter button halfway, or repeatedly push the shutter button halfway, the frame will appear and the camera will focus.

Subject is too dark.

Set the flash to h (p. 71).

Adjust the brightness with exposure compensation (p. 71).

Adjust the image with i-Contrast(pp. 92,131).

Use the AE lock, or spot metering to shoot (pp. 87,88).

Subject is too bright (overexposed).

Set the flash to ! (p. 64).

Adjust the brightness with exposure compensation (p. 71).

Use the AE lock, or spot metering to shoot (pp. 87,88).

Reduce the light illuminating the subject.

Image is dark even though the flash fired (p. 26).

Increase the ISO speed (p. 75).

Shoot within an appropriate distance for flash photography (p. 71).

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).

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. 75).

Depending on the Shooting mode, when shooting in a high ISO speed the image may appear rough or grainy (pp. 56,75).

Eyes appear red (p. 93).

Set the [Red-EyeLamp] to [On](p. 148). 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 reducingred-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.

Recording images to the memory card takes a long time, or continuous shooting slows down.

Perform alow-levelformat 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. 164 167).

158

Troubleshooting

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. 30,102).

appeared on the screen and shooting ended automatically.

The camera’s internal memory was insufficient. Try one of the following:

Perform a low-levelformat of the memory card in the camera(p. 51).

Change the image quality setting (p. 102).

Use a memory card capable of recording at high speeds (p. 102).

Zoom does not operate (p. 101).

Subject appears distorted.

The subject may appear distorted if it passes quickly in front of the camera while shooting. This is not a malfunction.

Playback

Cannot play back images or movies.

If the file name or folder structure is changed on a computer, you may not be able to play back images or movies. Refer to the Software Guide for information regarding folder structure or file names.

Playback stops, or audio cuts out.

Use a memory card that has been formatted on this camera (pp. 22,51).

If you copy a movie to a memory card that reads slowly, playback may interrupt momentarily.

Depending on its capabilities, when playing movies, the computer may drop frames or the audio may cut out.

Computer

Cannot transfer images to a computer.

It may be possible to solve the problem when the camera is connected to the computer via cable by reducing the transfer speed.

Press and hold down the n button, then press and hold theo andm buttons simultaneously. Choose [B] when it appears on the screen, then press them button.

Eye-FiCard

Cannot send images (p. 155).

159

List of Messages That Appear on the Screen

If error messages appear on the screen, try one of the following solutions.

No memory card

The memory card is not installed in the correct direction. Install the memory card in the correct direction (p. 17).

Memory card locked

The SD memory card, SDHC memory card or SDXC memory card’s write protect tab is set to “LOCK”. Unlock the write protect tab (pp. 16,17).

Cannot record!

You attempted to shoot an image without the a memory card, or with a memory card installed incorrectly. Install the memory card in the correct direction to shoot (p. 17).

Memory card error (p. 51)

If the same message appears even when a formatted memory card is installed in the correct direction, contact your Canon Customer Support Help Desk (p. 17).

Insufficient space on card

There is not enough free space on the memory card to shoot (pp. 24,53,69,83) or edit images(pp. 128 132). Erase the images(pp. 28,121) to open space for new images, or insert an empty memory card(p. 17).

Change the battery pack. (p. 17)

No Image.

There are no images recorded on the memory card that can be displayed.

List of Messages That Appear on the Screen

Invalid selection range

When choosing the selection range (pp. 119,122,125,140), 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

You chose more than 998 images in print settings. Choose less than 998 images (p. 139).

Print settings could not be saved correctly. Reduce the number of selected images and try again (p. 139).

You chose 501 or more images in Protect (p. 118), Erase(p. 121), My Category(p. 123), Favorites(p. 125) and Print Settings (DPOF)(p. 140).

Communication error

Images could not be transferred to the computer or printed due to the large amount of images (approx. 1,000) 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 3menu, change [File Numbering] to [Auto Reset](p. 144) or format the memory card(pp. 22,51).

Lens Error

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.

Handling Precautions

This camera is a high-precisionelectronic 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 in your Warranty System Booklet.

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.
