  • The data above reflects standard Canon testing conditions.The actual figures will vary according to the shooting conditions and settings.

  • Movie data is excluded.

  • At low temperatures, the battery pack performance may diminish and the low battery icon appear very rapidly. In these circumstances, the performance can be improved by warming the battery pack in a pocket before use.

<Test Conditions>

Shooting: Normal temperature (23 oC, 73 oF), alternating wide angle end and telephoto end shots at 20-second intervals with flash fired once every four shots and camera power turned off and on every eighth shot. CF card used.

Playback: Normal temperature (23 oC, 73 oF), continuous playback at one image per 3 seconds. CF card used.
