Using Lens Filters (Sold Separately)

Attaching a lens filter to the camera protects the lens and allows you to shoot with various effects. To attach a lens filter, you will need Filter Adapter FA-DC67A (sold separately).
  • We recommend the use of genuine Canon filters (67 mm dia.).
  • When not using auto focus to shoot, set the manual focus option [Safety MF] to [On].
  • If you use the built-in flash with the filter adapter attached, portions of the image may appear darker.
  • When using the filter adapter, be sure to use only one filter at a time. Attaching multiple filters, or accessories such as a heavy lens, may cause the attachments to fall off and become damaged.
  • Do not grip the filter adapter tightly.
  • Remove the filter adapter when not using a filter.

1. Make sure the camera is off.

2. Align the notches on the camera and the filter adapter and turn the adapter in the direction of the arrow until locked.
