Preventing Malfunctions
Camera
Avoid Strong Magnetic Fields
z
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
z
When moving the equipment rapidly from cold to hot 
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.
If condensation forms on the camera, remove the memory card and 
batteries, and set the camera aside in room temperature to allow the 
condensation to naturally evaporate before using the camera again.
Battery
z
This camera uses AA-size alkaline batteries or Canon AA-size 
NiMH batteries (sold separately).
While it is possible to use AA-size nickel-cadmium batteries, 
performance is unreliable and their use is not recommended.
z
Since the performance of alkaline batteries may differ 
according to brand, the operating time of the batteries you 
purchase may not be as long as the batteries that came with 
the camera.
z
When using the camera under low temperature conditions or 
over long periods, you are recommend to use of Canon 
AA-size NiMH batteries (sold separately).
Camera operating time may shorten at low temperatures when 
alkaline batteries are used. Also due to their specifications, alkaline 
batteries may expire faster than NiMH batteries.
