will close, and the mirror will go back down.

• Set the power switch to <0N>. You can start shooting again.

Stop the cleaning.

• Set the power switch to <OFF>. ► The camera will turn off, the shutter

During the sensor cleaning, never do any of the following that would turn off the power. If the power is cut off, the shutter will close and it may damage the shutter curtains and image sensor.

• Opening the CF card slot cover.

• Opening the battery compartment cover.

Do not insert the blower tip inside the camera beyond the lens mount. If the power goes out, the shutter will close and the shutter curtains and image sensor may be damaged.

Use a blower not attached with a brush. A brush can scratch the sensor. Never use canned air or gas to clean the sensor. The blowing force can damage the sensor or the spray gas can freeze on the sensor. When the battery is exhausted, the beeper will sound and the <>^Z1> icon will blink on the LCD panel. Set the power switch to <OFF>, replace the battery, and start over.

You cannot clean the sensor if Battery Grip BG-E3 (optional) is attached to the camera and size-AA batteries supply the power. Use AC Adapter Kit ACK700 (optional) or use a battery having sufficient power.

You can set the auto power-off time for the camera to turn off automatically after a set time of idle operation. If you do not want the camera to turn off automatically, set this to [Off]. If the camera turns off automatically, just press the shutter button halfway to turn it on again.
