Handling Precautions
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 the rear of the European Warranty System (EWS) Booklet.
Please Read6
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. 90).
Language Setting
Please see the Basic Guide (p. 3) to change the language setting.
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.
Equipment refers to the camera, battery, battery charger (sold separately) and compact power adapter (sold separately).
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.
Safety Precautions7
Warnings
Equipment
Do not look directly into the sun or at bright light sources through the camera's viewfinder.
Doing so can damage your eyesight.
Store this equipment out of the reach of children and infants.
Accidental damage by a child could result in serious injury.
• Wrist strap: Placement of the strap around the child’s neck could result in asphyxiation.
• Memory card: It may be swallowed accidentally. 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-voltage electrical 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 batteries or unplug the power code 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.8
Battery
Do not place the batteries near a heat source or expose it to direct flame or heat.
The batteries should not be immersed in water or sea water.
Do not attempt to disassemble, alter or apply heat to the batteries.
Avoid dropping or subjecting the batteries to severe impacts that could damage the casing.
Use only recommended batteries and accessories.
Use of batteries 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 battery charger and compact power adapter from both the camera and 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 battery charger while it is charging.
Continued use over a long period may cause the units to overheat and distort, resulting in fire.
When recharging the Canon AA-size NiMH batteries, use only a specified battery charger.
The compact power adapter is designed for exclusive use with this equipment. Do not use it with other products.
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.9
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.
Exercise due caution when screwing on the separately sold wide converter, tele-converter, close-up lens and conversion lens adapter.
If they loosen, fall off and shatter, the glass shards may cause injury.
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. Or, do not use the equipment if the cable or plug is damaged, or if the plug is not fully inserted into the power outlet.
Do not use in locations with poor ventilation.
The above-mentioned can cause leakage, overheating or explosion, resulting in fire, burns or other injuries. High temperatures may also cause deformation of the casing.10
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.
If the batteries are left inside the camera, damage caused by leakage may occur.
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-up could damage the flash.
Do not touch the surface of the flash after taking several pictures in rapid succession.
Doing so could result in burns.
Equipment11
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 between hot and cold temperatures, 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 between hot and cold temperatures 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 batteries or compact power adapter from the camera and wait until the moisture evaporates completely before resuming use.12
