Attaching the Strap

Pass the end of the strap through the strap mount from the bottom, then pass it through the strap buckle as shown. Pull the strap to take up any slack and make sure the strap will not loosen from the buckle.

Using the Cable Protector

When connecting the camera to a computer, use the included interface cable or a Canon cable.

When connecting an interface cable, also use the included cable protector. Using the cable protector helps prevent accidental disconnection and terminal damage.

Using the included interface cable and a Canon HDMI cable (sold separately)

    • (1) Cable protector
    • (2) Clamp
    • (3) Included interface cable
    • (4) HDMI cable (sold separately)

Using an optional Canon interface cable

When using an optional Canon interface cable, pass the cable through the clamp (5) as shown before attaching the clamp to the cable protector.


  • Using the camera when the interface cable is connected without the cable protector may damage the digital terminal.
  • Make sure the interface cable is securely connected to the digital terminal.


  • HDMI Cable HTC-100 is recommended when connecting the camera to a television. Also consider using the cable protector when connecting an HDMI cable.
