3. Insert the batteries, noting correct polarity
(+ and -).
4. Close the battery cover firmly.
Different battery types and surrounding temperatures may affect the battery
Avoid using batteries in extremely cold environments as low temperatures can shorten
the battery life and reduce camera performance. This low temperature will also
influence Alkaline battery performance, therefore Ni-MH rechargeable batteries are
If you are using the new rechargeable batteries or rechargeable batteries that have not
been used for an extended period of time (batteries that pass the expiry date are
exceptions) might affect the number of pictures that can be taken. Therefore, to
maximize their performance and lifetime, we recommend that you fully charge the
batteries and discharge them for at least one complete cycle before use.
If you will not be using the batteries for an extended period of time, remove them from
the camera to prevent leakage or corrosion.
Never use batteries of different types (together) or mix old and new batteries.
Never use manganese batteries.
