CARE AND STORAGE
Read this section in its entirety to get the best results from your camera. With proper care, your
camera will provide years of service.
CAMERA CARE
• Do not subject the camera to shock or impact.
• Turn off the camera when transporting.
• This camera is neither waterproof nor splashproof. Inserting or removing batteries or the memory
card, or operating the camera with wet hands may damage the camera.
• When at the beach or near water, take care not to expose the camera to water or sand. Water,
sand, dust, or salt can damage the camera.
• Do not leave the camera under direct sunlight. Do not point the lens directly at the sun; the CCD
may be damaged.
• Keep the camera away from electromagnetic fields from devices such as magnets or motors.
CLEANING
• If the camera or the outside of the lens is dirty, gently wipe it with a soft, clean, dry cloth. If the
camera or lens comes in contact with sand, gently blow away loose particles. Wiping may scratch
the surface.
• To clean the lens surface, first blow away any dust or sand, then gently wipe the lens with a cloth
or tissue designed for optics. Use lens-cleaning fluid if necessary.
• Never use organic solvents to clean the camera.
• Never touch the lens surface with your fingers.
STORAGE
• Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from dust and chemicals. For long periods of
disuse, store the camera in an airtight container with a silica-gel drying agent.
• Remove the batteries and memory card from the camera when not in use for extended periods.
• Do not store the camera in an area with naphthalene or mothballs.
• During long periods of storage, operate the camera occasionally. When taking the camera out of
storage, check that the camera is functioning properly before using.
