|I have been using this camera for over a year now and absolutely love it! As a very active photographer and an eBay seller. I own a Canon PowerShot A540 digital camera. It is easy to use and I love it. It takes great pictures and was worth the $150 that I paid for it. Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera is a very good camera which I take to almost every place I go. This is my first purchase of any digital camera and after some research on this site and others, and relying on the Canon brand name.|

This reflects standard shooting criteria established by Canon. Actual results may vary according to the subject and shooting conditions. Even if continuous shooting suddenly stops, the memory card may not be full.
* (Drive Mode)
PowerShot A540 PowerShot A530 The following movie modes are available. For information on the recording pixels and frame rate in each mode, refer to "Recording Pixels and Frame Rates" (p. 42). The recording time will differ according to the memory card used (p. 125).
Standard You can select the recording pixels and frame rate*1 and record until the memory card is full (when a super high-speed memory card is used, such as the recommended SDC-512MSH). The digital zoom can be used while shooting in this mode (p. 33). Maximum Size: 1 GB/movie*2 Fast Frame Rate (PowerShot A540 only) Use this mode to record fast moving subjects, such as in sports photography. Maximum Clip Length: 1 minute Compact Since the recording pixels are few and also the capacity is low, this mode is convenient for sending movies as e-mail attachments or when the memory card capacity is low. Maximum Clip Length: 3 minutes Color Accent, Color Swap You can have only the specified color remain and change all others into black and white, or change a specified color into a different color (p. 60, 61). As with the Standard mode, you can select the recording pixels and frame rate*1 and record until the memory card is full (when a super high-speed memory card is used, such as the recommended SDC-512MSH). Maximum Size: 1 GB/movie*2

The memory card supplied with the camera may be used without further formatting. Be careful of the following while recording. - Do not touch the microphone. - Do not press any buttons other than the shutter button. The sound that buttons make will be recorded in the movie. - The camera will automatically adjust the exposure and white balance to suit the shooting conditions during recording. Please note, however, that the sounds made by the camera automatically adjusting the exposure may also be recorded. The focus and optical zoom settings remain fixed for subsequent frames at the values selected for the first frame.

The white balance setting cannot be adjusted when or is selected for My Colors, or when or is selected for Movie Shooting.
Using the Custom White Balance
You can set a custom white balance to obtain the optimal setting for the shooting conditions by having the camera evaluate an object, such as a piece of white paper or cloth, or a photo-quality gray card that you wish to establish as the standard white color. In particular, take a custom white balance reading for the following situations that are difficult for the (Auto) setting to detect correctly.

Use a memory card formatted in your camera (p. 30).
Batteries consumed quickly.
Batteries are not the right type. Battery capacity drops due to low ambient temperatures. Battery terminals are dirty. Use only unused AA-size alkaline batteries or Canon AA-size NiMH batteries (Basic Guide p. 1). If shooting in a cold location, warm the batteries such as by placing them in your pocket before using them. Wipe the terminals well with a dry cloth before use. Reload the batteries several times. Their charging performance should return to normal after fully recharging and fully depleting them over several times. Replace both batteries with new ones.
If using Canon AA-size NiMH batteries
As the batteries have not been used for over a year, their recharging capacity has decreased. Battery life has been exceeded.
Charge becomes Severely Limited If the battery usage time has considerably diminished, wipe the battery terminals well with a dry cloth. The terminals may be dirty from fingerprints. Usage in Cold Temperatures (Less than 0C/32F) Get a spare generic lithium battery (CR123A or DL123). You are recommended to place the spare battery in your pocket to warm it up before switching it for the battery in the flash. Non-Use over Extended Periods Leaving batteries in the High-Power Flash could allow the battery fluid to leak, damaging the product. Remove the batteries from the High-Power Flash and store them in a cool, dry place. Appendix
Replacing the Date Battery
If the Date/Time menu appears when the camera power is turned on, the date battery charge is low and the date and time settings have been lost. Please purchase a lithium coin battery (CR1220) and replace it as follows. Please note that the first date battery may appear to expire relatively quickly after you purchase the camera. This is because it is installed in the camera at the point of manufacture, not when you make the purchase. Be particularly careful to keep the date batteries out of the reach of children. Seek medical assistance immediately if a child swallows a battery since corrosive battery fluids can damage the stomach or intestinal walls.
Confirm that the camera is turned off. Slide the memory card slot / battery cover lock and open the cover. Hook your nail onto the date battery holder and lightly pull it up.
Remove the battery holder in the direction indicated by the arrow.
Remove the battery by pulling it up in the direction indicated by the arrow.
Insert a new battery with the () side facing up. Replace the battery holder and close the memory card slot/battery cover. When the Date/Time menu appears, set the date and time (Basic Guide p. 3).
After purchasing the camera and turning on the power for the first time, although the Date/Time menu will appear, you do not need to replace the date battery.
If you ever dispose of your camera, first remove the date battery for recycling according to the recycling system of your country.
Camera Care and Maintenance
Never use thinners, benzine, synthetic cleansers or water to clean the camera. These substances may distort or damage the equipment.
Gently wipe dirt off the camera body with a soft cloth or eyeglass lens wiper.
First use a lens blower brush to remove dust and dirt, then remove any remaining dirt by wiping the lens lightly with a soft cloth. Never use synthetic cleansers on the camera body or lens. If dirt remains, contact the closest Canon Customer Support Help Desk as listed on the separate Canon Customer Support leaflet.
Viewfinder and LCD Monitor

*1 This digital camera supports Exif 2.2 (also called Exif Print). Exif Print is a standard for enhancing the communication between digital cameras and printers. By connecting to an Exif Print-compliant printer, the cameras image data at the time of shooting is used and optimized, yielding extremely high quality prints.

The actual figures will vary according to the shooting conditions and settings. Movie data is excluded. At low temperatures, the battery performance may diminish and the low battery icon may appear very rapidly. In these circumstances, the performance can be improved by warming the battery in a pocket before use. Test Conditions Shooting: Normal temperature (23C 2C/73F 3.6F), normal relative humidity (50% 20%), alternating wide angle end and telephoto end shots at 30 second intervals with the flash fired once every two shots and the camera power turned off after every tenth shot. Power is left off for a sufficient amount of time*, then the power is turned back on and the testing procedure is repeated.
