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. 141).
Charging the Date/Time Battery
 The camera has a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion 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 for at least 4 hours to charge the date/time battery. It will charge even when the camera power is turned off.
 If the 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.2

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, its subsidiaries and affiliates, and its distributors are not liable for any consequential damages arising from any malfunction of a camera or accessory, including SD memory cards, that results in the failure of an image to be recorded or to be recorded in a format 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 this booklet or the European Warranty System (EWS) Booklet.7
Safety Precautions
 Before using the camera, please ensure that you read and understand the safety 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 and its power supply accessories, such as the battery charger and separately sold compact power adapter. See the System Map for power supply accessory details.
Warnings
• Do not aim the camera directly into the sun or at other intense light sources that 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 battery pack 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 Help Desk.
Storing SD cards
Store the SD memory card out of the reach of children and infants.
It may be swallowed accidentally. If this occurs, consult a doctor immediately.8
 To avoid the risk of high-voltage electrical shock, do not touch the flash portion of the camera if it has been damaged. Similarly, never touch internal portions of the equipment that become exposed as a result of damage. There is a risk of high-voltage electrical shock. Please take the first opportunity to consult your camera distributor or the closest Canon
Customer Support Help Desk.
 Stop operating the equipment immediately if it emits smoke or noxious fumes. Failure to do so may result in fire or electrical shock. Immediately turn the camera power off, remove the battery pack or unplug the battery charger from the power outlet. Confirm that smoke or fume emissions have ceased. Please consult your camera distributor or the closest Canon
Customer Support Help Desk.
 Stop operating the equipment if it is dropped or the casing is damaged.
Failure to do so may result in fire or electrical shock. Immediately turn the camera power off, remove the battery pack or unplug the power cable from the power outlet. Please consult your camera distributor or the closest Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
 Do not allow the equipment to come into contact with, or become immersed in, water or other liquids. Do not allow liquids to enter the interior. The camera has not been waterproofed. If the exterior comes into contact with liquids or salt air, wipe it dry with a soft, absorbent cloth. If water or other foreign substances enter the interior, immediately turn the camera power off and remove the camera battery pack or unplug the power cord from the power outlet. Continued use of the equipment may result in fire or electrical shock. Please consult your camera distributor or the closest Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
 Do not use substances containing alcohol, benzene, thinners or other flammable substances to clean or maintain the equipment. The use of these substances may lead to fire.
 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. In dusty, humid or greasy environments, the dust that collects around the plug over long periods of time may become saturated with humidity and short-circuit, leading to fire.9
 Do not cut, damage, alter or place heavy items on the power cord.
Any of these actions may cause an electrical short circuit, which may lead to fire or electrical shock.
 Do not handle the power cord if your hands are wet. Handling it with wet hands may lead to electrical shock. When unplugging the cable, ensure that you hold the solid portion of the plug. Pulling on the flexible portion of the cable may damage or exposure the wire and insulation, creating the potential for fires or electrical shocks.
 Use only recommended power accessories. Use of power sources not expressly recommended for this equipment may lead to overheating, distortion of the equipment, fire, electrical shock or other hazards.
 Do not place the battery pack near a heat source or expose it to direct flame or heat. Neither should you immerse it in water. Such exposure may damage the battery pack and lead to the leakage of corrosive liquids, fire, electrical shock, explosion or serious injury.
 Do not attempt to disassemble, alter or apply heat to the battery pack.
There is serious risk of injury due to an explosion. Immediately flush with water any area of the body - including the eyes and mouth, or clothing - that comes into contact with the inner contents of a battery. If the eyes or mouth contact these substances, immediately flush with water and seek medical assistance.
 Avoid dropping or subjecting the battery pack to severe impacts that could damage the casings. It could lead to leakage and injury.
 Do not short-circuit the battery terminals with metallic objects, such as key holders. It could lead to overheating, burns and other injuries. Use the supplied terminal cover to transport or store the battery pack.
 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. Discard the battery pack in specialized waste facilities if available in your area.
 Use only recommended battery pack and accessories. Use of battery pack not expressly recommended for this equipment may cause explosions or leaks, resulting in fire, injury and damage to the surroundings.10
 Use the specified battery charger to charge Battery Pack NB-4L. Use of other chargers may lead to overheating, distortion of the equipment, fire or electrical shock.
 Disconnect the battery charger and compact power adapter from both the camera and the power outlet after recharging and when they are not in use to avoid fire and other hazards. Continuous use over a long period may cause a unit to overheat and distort, resulting in fire.
 The battery charger and compact power adapter are designed for exclusive use with your camera. Do not use it with other products or batteries. There is a risk of fire and other hazards.
Caution about magnetic fields
Keep objects that are sensitive to magnetic fields (such as credit cards) away from the speaker of the camera (p.14, 17). Such items may lose data or stop working.11
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 battery charger to charge the battery pack.
 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 clothing when shooting. The flash may be damaged and emit 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.
 Do not operate the flash with dirt, dust or other items stuck to its lens.
The resulting heat build-up could damage the flash.
 Ensure that the battery charger is plugged into a power outlet of the specified rating, not over the specified rating. The plug of the battery charger varies according to region.
 Do not use the battery charger or compact power adapter if the plug or cable is damaged, or if the plug is not fully inserted into the power outlet.
 Do not allow metal objects (such as pins or keys) or dirt to contact the charger terminals or plug.
 If your camera is used for prolonged periods, the camera body may become warm. Please take care when operating the camera for extended periods 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 SD card and battery pack or compact power adapter 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 battery pack from the camera or battery charger and store the equipment in a safe place. Storing the camera for extended periods with a battery pack installed will run down the battery pack. However the date, time and other camera settings may reset to default settings if the battery pack has been removed for more than three weeks. 13
