SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Camera notes:
Do not store or use the camera in the following types of 
locations:
•  In the rain, very humid and dusty places.
•  In a place where the camera can be exposed directly to the 
sunlight or subject to high temperature, e.g. Inside a closed 
car in summer.
•  In a place where the camera is subject to a high magnetic 
field, e.g. near motors, transformers or magnets. 
Do not place the camera on a wet surface or places where 
dripping water or sand may come in contact with the camera, 
which may cause irrepairable faults.
If the camera will not be used for a long period of time, we 
suggest you remove the battery and the memory card from 
the camera and keep them in dry environment. 
If you carry the camera suddenly from a cold location to a 
warm place, moisture may condense inside the camera. We 
suggest you wait for a while before turing on the camera. 
No compensation for loss of recordings. Loss of recordings 
cannot be compensated for if a malfunction of your camera 
or recording media, etc, makes the playback of recordings not 
possible.
Battery notes:
Incorrect use of the batteries may cause them to leak, become 
hot, ignite or burst. Always observe the precautions given below.
•  Do not expose the batteries to water, and take  particular 
care to keep the terminals dry.
•  Do not heat the batteries or throw them into a fire.
•  Do not attempt to deform, disassemble or modify the 
batteries. 
Keep the batteries out of reach of babies and small children.
In cold locations, battery performance deteriorates and the 
time for which they can be used shortens markedly. 
Memory card notes:
When using a new  memory card, or a memory card  has been 
initialized by a PC, be sure to format the card with your digital 
camera before using it.
To edit image data, copy the image data to the PC’s hard disk 
first.
Do not change or delete the folder names or file names in the 
memory card from your PC, as this may make it impossible 
to recognize or misinterpret the original folder or file in your 
camera.
The photos taken by this camera are stored in the auto-
generated folder in SD card. Please do not store photos that 
are not taken by this model of camera, as this may make it 
impossible to recognize the picture when the camera is in 
playback mode. Please do not expose the camera to harsh 
environments such as moisture or extreme temperatures, 
which may shorten the life of your camera or damage the 
batteries.
