attempted to choose an initial image that was after the inal image, or vice-versa.

Exceeded selection limit


More than 998 images were selected for Print List (= 137) or Photobook Set-up 
(= 139). Choose 998 images or less.


Print List (= 137) or Photobook Set-up (= 139) settings could not be saved 
correctly. Reduce the number of selected images and try again.

(= 79), Favorites (= 83), Print List (= 137), or Photobook Set-up

Naming error!


The folder could not be created or images could not be recorded, because the 
highest supported folder number (999) for storing images on the card has been 
reached and the highest supported image number (9999) for images in folders 
has been reached. On the [

] tab, change [File Numbering] to [Auto Reset] 

(= 122), or format the memory card (= 121).

This error may occur if the lens is held while it is moving, or when the camera is 
used in dusty or sandy locations.

case, contact a Canon Customer Support Help Desk.

case, write down the error number (Exx) and contact a Canon Customer Support 
Help Desk.
