Handling Precautions

Please Read

Test Shots

Before you try to photograph important subjects, we highly recommend that you shoot several trial images to confirm that the camera is operating and being operated correctly.

Please note that Canon Inc., its subsidiaries and affiliates, and its distributors are not liable for any consequential damages arising from any malfunction of a camera or accessory, including memory cards, that results in the failure of an image to be recorded or to be recorded in a way that is machine readable.

Warning Against Copyright Infringement

Please note that Canon digital cameras are intended for personal use and should never be used in a manner that infringes upon or contravenes international or domestic copyright laws and regulations. Please be advised that in certain cases the copying of images from performances, exhibitions, or commercial properties by means of a camera or other device may contravene copyright or other legal rights even if the image was shot for personal use.

Warranty Limitations

For information on your camera's warranty, please refer to the Canon European Warranty System (EWS) Booklet supplied with your camera.

For Canon Customer Support contacts, please see rear of the European Warranty System (EWS) Booklet.

5

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-precisionmanufacturing 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. 97).

Language Setting

Please see the Basic Guide (p. 11) to change the language setting.

Safety Precautions

Before using the camera, please ensure that you read the safety precautions described below and in the "Safety Precautions" section of the Basic Camera User Guide. 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. Be sure you fully understand them before reading the rest of the manual.

Equipment refers to the camera, camera station, compact power adapter or separately sold battery charger.

Battery refers to the battery pack.

Warnings

Equipment

Do not aim the camera directly into the sun or at other intense light sources that could damage your eyesight.

Store this equipment out of the reach of children and infants.

Wrist strap: Placement of the strap around the child's neck could result in asphyxiation.

Memory card: Dangerous if accidentally swallowed. If this occurs, contact a doctor immediately.

Do not attempt to disassemble or alter any part of the equipment that is not expressly described in this guide.

To avoid the risk of high-voltageelectrical shock, do not touch the flash portion of the camera if it has been damaged.

Stop operating the equipment immediately if it emits smoke or noxious fumes.

Do not allow the equipment to come into contact with, or become immersed in, water or other liquids. If the exterior comes into contact with liquids or salt air, wipe it dry with a soft, absorbent cloth.

Continued use of the equipment may result in fire or electrical shock. Immediately turn the camera power off and remove the camera battery or unplug the power cord from the power outlet. Please consult your camera distributor or the closest Canon Customer Support Help Desk.

Do not use substances containing alcohol, benzine, thinners or other flammable substances to clean or maintain the equipment.

Do not cut, damage, alter or place heavy items on the power cord. Use only recommended power accessories.

Remove the power cord on a regular periodic basis and wipe away the dust and dirt that collects on the plug, the exterior of the power outlet and the surrounding area.

Do not handle the power cord if your hands are wet.

Continued use of the equipment may result in fire or electrical shock.

7

Battery

Do not place the battery near a heat source or expose it to direct flame or heat.

The battery should not be immersed in water or sea water.

Do not attempt to disassemble, alter or apply heat to the battery.

Avoid dropping or subjecting the battery to severe impacts that could damage the casing.

Use only recommended battery and accessories.

Use of battery not expressly recommended for this equipment may cause explosions or leaks, resulting in fire, injury and damage to the surroundings. In the event that a battery leaks and the eyes, mouth, skin or clothing contact these substances, immediately flush with water and seek medical assistance.

Disconnect the compact power adapter from both the camera station and the power outlet, or disconnect the battery charger from the power outlet after recharging or when not in use to avoid fire and other hazards.

Do not place anything, such as tablecloths, carpets, bedding or cushions, on top of the equipment while it is charging.

Continued use over a long period may cause the units to overheat and distort, resulting in fire.

Use only the specified compact power adapter and battery charger to charge the battery.

The compact power adapter and battery charger are designed for exclusive use with your camera. Do not use it with other products or batteries.

There is a risk of overheating and distortion which could result in fire or electrical shock.

Before you discard a battery, cover the terminals with tape or other insulators to prevent direct contact with other objects.

Contact with the metallic components of other materials in waste containers may lead to fire or explosions.

8

Others

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.

Keep objects that are sensitive to magnetic fields (such as credit cards) away from the speaker of the camera.

Such items may lose data or stop working.

Cautions

Equipment

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.

Do not store the equipment in humid or dusty areas.

Do not allow metal objects (such as pins or keys) or dirt to contact the charger terminals or plug.

Such conditions could lead to fire, electrical shock or other damage.

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.

Do not use the equipment in a manner that exceeds the rated capacity of the electrical outlet or wiring accessories. Do not use if the power cord or plug are damaged, or if not fully plugged into the outlet.

Do not use in locations with poor ventilation.

The above-mentionedcan cause leakage, overheating or explosion, resulting in fire, burns or other injuries. High temperatures may also cause deformation of the casing.

When not using the camera for extended periods of time, remove the battery from the camera or battery charger and store the equipment in a safe place.

The battery can run down.

9

Equipment

Do not connect compact power adapters or battery chargers to devices such as electrical transformers for foreign travel because it may lead to malfunctions, excessive heat generation, fire, electric shock or injury.

Flash

Do not operate the flash with dirt, dust or other items stuck to the surface of the flash.

Be careful not to cover the flash with your fingers or clothing when shooting.

The flash may be damaged and emit smoke or noise. The resulting heat build-upcould damage the flash.

Do not touch the surface of the flash after taking several pictures in rapid succession.

Doing so could result in burns.

10

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

When moving the equipment rapidly from a cold place to a hot place, you can avoid condensation by placing the equipment in an airtight, resealable plastic bag and letting it adjust to temperature changes slowly before removing it from the bag.

Moving the equipment rapidly from a cold place to a hot place may cause condensation (water droplets) to form on its external and internal surfaces.

If Condensation Forms Inside the Camera

Stop using the camera immediately.

Continued use may damage the equipment. Remove the memory card and battery or compact power adapter from the camera and wait until the moisture evaporates completely before resuming use.

Histogram Function

The histogram is a graph that allows you to check the brightness of the image. The greater the bias toward the left in the graph, the darker the image. The greater the bias toward 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. 48).

The following movie modes are available.

For information on the recording pixels and frame rate in each mode, refer to Changing Recording Pixels and Frame Rates (p. 41).

Standard

You can select the recording pixels and frame rate and record until the memory card is full (when a super high-speedmemory card is used, such as the recommendedSDC-512MSH).The digital zoom can be used while shooting in this mode.(p. 33)

• Maximum Size: 4 GB*/movie

Fast Frame Rate

Use this mode to record fast moving subjects, such as in sports photography.

• Maximum Clip Length: 1 minute

Compact

Since there are few recording pixels and also the data size is small, this mode is convenient for sending movies as e-mailattachments or when the memory card capacity is low.

• Maximum Clip Length: 3 minutes

Color Accent Color Swap

You can have only the specified color remain and change all others into black and white, or change a specified color into a different color (p. 56,58). As with the Standard mode, you can also select the recording pixels and frame rate and record until the memory card is full (when a superhigh-speedmemory card is used, such as the recommendedSDC-512MSH).

Maximum Size: 4 GB*/movie

The recording time will vary according to the capacity of the memory card you use (p. 129).

*Recording will stop after one hour of continuous recording even if the recorded data volume has not reached 4 GB.

You are recommended to use a memory card that has been formatted in your camera to shoot movies (p. 29). The card supplied with the camera may be used without further formatting.

Be careful of the following while recording.

-Try not to touch the microphone.

-Do not press any buttons other than the shutter button. The sound that buttons make will be recorded in the movie.

-The camera will automatically adjust the exposure and white balance to suit the shooting conditions during recording. Please note, however, that the sounds made by the camera automatically adjusting the exposure may also be recorded.

The focus and optical zoom settings remain fixed for subsequent frames at the values selected for the first frame. Do not aim the camera toward the sun to shoot.

The nature of CCD image sensors is such that noise in the recorded image increases at long 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-qualityimages. A certain amount of processing time, however, may be required before the next image can be shot.

Use the LCD monitor to confirm that the image was recorded at the desired brightness.

Please note that camera shake becomes a factor at low shutter speeds. Shoot with the camera attached to a tripod. Use of the flash may result in an over-exposedimage. If this occurs, shoot with the flash set to .

Even if the Auto Rotate function is set to [On], the orientation of images downloaded to a computer will depend upon the software used to download the images.

When the camera is held vertically to shoot, the Intelligent Orientation sensor judges the upper end to be "up" and the lower end to be "down".

Battery Handling

Battery Charge

The following icon and message will display.

Battery charge is low. Recharge it as soon as possible it will be used for an extended period.

Change the battery pack

Battery charge is insufficient to operate the camera. Replace the battery immediately.

Battery Handling Precautions

Keep the battery terminals clean at all times.

Dirty terminals may cause poor contact between the battery and camera. Polish the terminals with a soft cotton swab before charging or using the battery.

At low temperatures, battery performance may be reduced and the low battery icon () may appear earlier than usual.

Under these conditions, revive the battery by warming it in a pocket immediately before use.

However, ensure that there are no metallic items in the pocket that could cause a short circuit, such as a key ring, etc.

The battery may be short circuiting.

Do not allow any metal objects

Fig. C.

You are recommended to use it in the camera until it is completely discharged and to store it in an indoor location with low relative humidity and between the temperatures of 0 – 30 °C (32 – 86 °F).

Storing a fully charged battery for long periods of time (about one year) may shorten its life cycle or affect its performance. If you do not use the battery for long periods of time, charge it fully and discharge it fully in the camera about once a year before returning it to storage.

Charging the Battery

Use the supplied camera station and compact power adapter or Battery Charger CB-2LV/CB-2LVE(sold separately) to recharge Battery PackNB-4L.

Since this is a lithium-ionbattery, you need not completely discharge it before recharging.

It takes approximately 1 hour 30 minutes to fully charge the battery from a depleted state (based on Canon’s testing standards).

Charging it within a temperature range of 5 – 40 °C (41 – 104 °F) is recommended.

Charge times may vary according to the ambient temperature and the battery's charge state.

You are advised to charge the battery on the day of use, or one day before, to ensure a full charge.

Even charged batteries continue to discharge naturally.

If the performance of the battery diminishes substantially even when it is fully charged, its life has been exceeded and it should be replaced.

Cautions When Handling

Memory cards are high-precisionelectronic devices. Do not bend them, apply force to them, or subject them to shocks or vibration.

Do not attempt to disassemble or alter the memory card.

Do not allow dirt, water or foreign objects to contact the terminals on the back of the card. Do not touch the terminals with your hands or metal objects.

Do not peel away the original label on the memory card or cover it with another label or sticker.

When writing on the memory card, do not use a pencil or ball-pointpen. Only use a soft point pen (e.g.felt-tippen).

Do not use or store memory cards in the following locations.

• Locations subject to dust or sand

 

• Locations subject to high humidity and high temperatures

 

Since some or all of the data recorded on the memory card

copy of important data is recommended.

 

117

Formatting

Please note that formatting (initializing) an memory card erases all data, including protected images.

You are recommended to use memory cards that have been formatted in your camera.

The card supplied with the camera may be used without further formatting.

When the camera is malfunctioning, a corrupted memory card might be the cause. Reformatting the memory card may solve the problem.

When a non-Canonbrand memory card is malfunctioning, reformatting it may solve the problem.

Memory cards formatted in other cameras, computers, or peripheral devices may not operate correctly in this camera. When that happens, reformat the memory card with this camera.

If formatting in the camera does not work properly, turn the camera off and re-insertthe memory card. Then turn the camera back on and format again.

Data on a card is not completely erased even when the card is formatted or images are erased because these processes merely change the file management data. Please note this fact when transferring ownership or disposing of cards. Take care to destroy the card when disposing of it to prevent the leakage of personal data.

The charge indicator will light orange while the battery is charging. It will change to green when the charge is complete.

After charging, unplug the battery charger and immediately remove the battery.

To protect the battery and prolong its life, do not charge it for longer than 24 hours continuously.

It takes approximately 1 hour 30 minutes to fully charge the battery from a depleted state (based on Canon’s testing standards).

Charging it within a temperature range of 5 – 40 °C (41 – 104 °F) is recommended.

Charge times may vary according to the ambient temperature and the battery's charge state.

Using an Externally Mounted Flash

(Sold Separately)

High-PowerFlashHF-DC1

This flash is used to supplement the camera's built-inflash when the subject is too far away for proper illumination. Use the following procedures to affix the camera andHigh-PowerFlash to the supporting bracket.

Please read the instructions accompanying the flash along with this explanation.

Tripod

Sockets

Bracket

(Comes with the flash)

The flash charge time will lengthen as the battery charge gets weaker. Always set the power/mode switch to [OFF] when you finish using the flash.

Be careful not to touch the flash window or sensor windows with your fingers while the flash is in use.

The flash may fire if another flash is being used in close proximity.

The High-PowerFlash may not fire outdoors in daylight or when there are no reflective items.

For continuous shooting, although the flash fires for the first shot, it does not fire for subsequent shots.

Fasten the attachment screws securely so that they do not loosen. Failure to do so may lead to the dropping of the camera and flash resulting in damage to both.

120

Before attaching the bracket to the flash, check that the lithium battery (CR123A or DL123) is installed.

To illuminate the subjects properly, install the flash so that it is up against the side of the camera and parallel with the camera’s front panel.

A tripod can be used even when the flash is attached.

Batteries

Charge becomes Severely Limited

If the battery usage time has considerably diminished, wipe the battery terminals well with a dry cloth. The terminals may be dirty from fingerprints.

Usage in Cold Temperatures

Get a spare generic lithium battery (CR123A or DL123). You are recommended to place the spare battery in your pocket to warm it up before switching it for the battery in the flash.

Non-Useover Extended Periods

Leaving batteries in the High-PowerFlash could allow the battery fluid to leak, damaging the product. Remove the batteries from theHigh-PowerFlash and store them in a cool, dry place.

Appendix

The actual figures will vary according to the shooting conditions and settings.

Movie data is excluded.

At low temperatures, the battery performance may diminish and the low battery icon may appear very rapidly. In these circumstances, the performance can be improved by warming the battery in a pocket before use.

Test Conditions

Shooting: Normal temperature (23 °C ± 2 °C/73 °F ± 3.6 °F), normal relative humidity (50% ± 20%), alternating wide angle end and telephoto end shots at 30 second intervals with the flash fired once every two shots and the camera power turned off after every tenth shot. Power is left off for a sufficient amount of time*, then the power is turned back on and the testing procedure is repeated.

A Canon-brandmemory card is used.

*Until the battery returns to normal temperature

Playback: Normal temperature (23 °C ± 2 °C/73 °F ± 3.6 °F), normal relative humidity (50% ± 20%), continuous playback at 3 seconds per image.

See Battery Handling Precautions(p. 115).
