Approximate Number of Shots That Can Be Taken, Battery Charge Indicator

Charging the Battery


Approximate Number of Shots That Can Be Taken

* The number of shots that can be taken is based on the Camera & Imaging Products 

Association (CIPA) measurement standard.

Under some shooting conditions, the number of shots that can be taken may be less 
than mentioned above.

Battery Charge Indicator

An icon or message will appear on the screen indicating the battery’s charge state.

Charge the battery on the day, or the day before, it will be used.
Charged batteries continue to discharge naturally even if they are not used.

How to store the battery for long periods.
Deplete and remove the battery from the camera. Attach the terminal cover and 
store the battery. Storing a battery for long periods of time (about a year) without 
depleting it may shorten its life span or affect its performance.

The battery charger can also be used when abroad.
The charger can be used in regions that have 100 – 240 V (50/60 Hz) AC power. 
If the plug does not fit the outlet, use a commercially available plug adapter. Do 
not use electrical transformers for foreign travel as they will cause damage.

The battery may develop a bulge.
This is a normal characteristic of the battery and does not indicate a problem. 
However, if the battery bulges to the point where it will no longer fit into the 
camera, please contact a Canon Customer Support Help Desk.

If the battery is quickly depleted even after charging, it has reached the 
end of its life span.
Purchase a new battery.
