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

Handling the Memory Card SD Memory Card Write Protect Tab Write Protect Tab Slide the switch Writing/Erasing Possible Cautions When Handling Memory cards are high-precision electronic devices. Do not bend them, apply force to them, or subject them to shocks or vibration.
• When the camera is malfunctioning, a corrupted memory card might be the cause. Reformatting the memory card may solve the problem. • When a non-Canon brand 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.
Using an AC Adapter Kit (Sold Separately) It is best to power the camera with AC Adapter Kit ACK-DC10 (sold separately) when you are using it for long periods of time or connecting it to a computer. Turn the camera power off before connecting or disconnecting the AC adapter.
Using an Externally Mounted Flash High-Power Flash HF-DC1 This flash is used to supplement the camera's built-in flash when the subject is too far away for proper illumination. Use the following procedures to affix the camera and High-Power Flash to the supporting bracket.
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.
Never use synthetic cleansers on the camera body or lens. If dirt remains, contact the closest Canon Customer Support Help Desk as listed on the customer support list supplied with your camera.
