About Formatting

 

The supplied memory card has already been formatted.

C

 

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.

The total capacity of the memory card displayed in the [Format] 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]. When stopping low level formatting, the data will be erased but the memory card can be used without problem.

Handling Precautions

Equipment

This camera is a high-precisionelectronic 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 Yfrom cold to hot temperatures, condensation may form on the internal or external surfaces of the camera. To avoid condensation,Pput the camera in an airtight, resealable plastic bag and let it adjust to temperature changes slowly before removing it from theObag.

When condensation has formed, stop using the camera immediately. ContinuedCuse may damage the camera. Remove the batteries and memory card, and wait until the moisture has completely evaporated before resuming use.Memory Cards

Memory cards are high-precisionelectronic devices. Do not bend, apply force or subject to strong impact. Doing so may corrupt image data recorded on the memory card.

Do not spill liquids on the memory card. Do not touch the memory card's terminals with your hands or metallic objects.

Do not store memory cards near a TV, speakers or other devices that generate magnetism or static electricity. Doing so may corrupt image data recorded on the memory card.

Do not store memory cards in hot, humid or dusty locations.
