Preliminary Notes and Legal 


Take and review some test shots initially to make sure the images 
were recorded correctly. Please note that Canon Inc., its subsidiaries 

and afiliates, and its distributors are not liable for any consequential 
damages arising from any malfunction of a camera or accessory, 
including memory cards, that result in the failure of an image to be 
recorded or to be recorded in a way that is machine readable.


Images recorded by the camera shall be for personal use. Refrain 
from unauthorized recording that infringes on copyright law, and note 
that even for personal use, photography may contravene copyright 
or other legal rights at some performances or exhibitions, or in some 
commercial settings.


The camera warranty is valid only in the area of purchase. In case of 
camera problems while abroad, return to the area of purchase before 
contacting a Canon Customer Support Help Desk.


Although the LCD monitor is produced under extremely high-precision 
manufacturing conditions and more than 99.99% of the pixels meet 

design speciications, in rare cases some pixels may be defective or 
may appear as red or black dots. This is not a malfunction. In addition, 
this does not affect recorded images.


The LCD monitor may be covered with a thin plastic ilm for protection 

against scratches during shipment. If covered, remove the ilm before 
using the camera.


When the camera is used over an extended period, it may become 
warm. This does not indicate damage.
