• If the <
> switch is set to <
> and nothing is displayed on the LCD panel, the
battery is probably installed incorrectly. Install the battery correctly and check the
battery level.
• Even if the conditions described in 3 and 4 apply, a proper exposure will be
obtained as long as the shutter releases to take a picture.
• The table shows the number of 24-exposure
rolls based on Canon’s tests with a new battery
and an EF 50mm f/1.4 USM lens. Figures in
parentheses are the number of 36-exposure
rolls.
• Pressing the shutter button halfway and activating the autofocus will still consume
battery power even if no pictures are taken.
• Since field conditions may differ, the actual number of rolls may be less than the
figures in the table.
• Pressing the shutter button halfway for prolonged periods or frequent playing with
the autofocus without taking any pictures will lower the number of rolls that can be
taken.
