• In the next few pages, the term “equipment” refers primarily to the camera and its power
• Do not aim the camera directly into the sun or at other intense light sources that could
injure 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 injure 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 batteries by a child could result in serious injury. In addition, placement of the wrist strap around a child’s neck could result in asphyxiation.
• Be particularly careful to keep the button batteries (CR2025 lithium) used in the camera
out of the reach of children. Seek medical assistance immediately if a child swallows a battery.
• 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.
• 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 a Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
• Stop operating the equipment immediately if it should emit smoke or noxious fumes.
Failure to do so may result in fire or electrical shock. Set the camera’s main switch to the Off position and remove the camera battery or unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet immediately. Confirm that smoke or fume emissions cease. 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. Set the camera’s main switch to the Off position and remove the camera battery or unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet immediately. Please consult your camera distributor of the closest Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
• Prevent the equipment from contact with, or immersion in, water and other liquids. Do not

Do not use substances containing alcohol, benzene, thinners...
• 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.
• Do not cut, damage, alter or place heavy items on the power adapter cord. Any of these
actions may cause an electrical short circuit, which may lead to fire or electrical shock. Replace a broken or damaged power adapter cord.
• Do not handle the power cord if your hands are wet. Handling it with wet hands may lead
to electrical shock. When unplugging the cord, ensure that you hold the rigid portion of the plug. Pulling the flexible portion of the cord may damage or expose the wire and insulation, creating the potential for fires or electrical shocks.
• Use of power sources not expressly recommended for this equipment may lead to
overheating, distortion of the equipment, fire, electrical shock or other hazards. Use only the recommended power accessories.
• Power down the computer and unplug the power cord before attempting to connect the
interface cable, to avoid the risk of electrical shock.
• Do not place the batteries near a heat source or expose them to direct flame or heat.
Neither should you immerse them in water. Such exposure may damage the batteries 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 batteries. 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 batteries to severe impacts that could damage the
casings. This could lead to leakage and injury.
• Do not short-circuit the battery terminals with metallic objects, such as key holders. This
could lead to overheating, burns and other injuries. Use the supplied battery case 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 batteries in specialized waste facilities if available in your area.
• Use of batteries not expressly recommended for this equipment may cause explosions or
leaks, resulting in fire, injury and damage to the surroundings. Use only recommended batteries and accessories.
• Use only the recommended compact power adapter to charge the Battery Pack BP-511
rechargeable batteries. Use of chargers not expressly recommended may result in overheating, distortion, fire or electrical shock.
• Disconnect the compact power adapter from both the camera and electrical outlet after
recharging and when the camera is not in use to avoid fires and other hazards.
• The camera terminal of the compact power cord is designed for exclusive use with the
