SD Memory Cards, MultiMediaCards, and Memory Sticks are manufactured with precision electron-
ic components. The following may cause data loss or damage:
• Improper use of the card.
• Bending, dropping, or subjecting the card to impact.
• Heat, moisture, and direct sunlight.
• Static electrical discharge or electromagnetic fields near the card.
• Removing the card or interrupting the power supply while the camera or a computer is accessing
the card (reading, writing, formatting, etc.).
• Touching the electrical contacts of the card with your fingers or metal objects.
• Using the card beyond its life. Purchasing a new card periodically may be necessary.
Konica Minolta has no responsibility for any loss or damage to data. It is recommended that a copy
of the card data be made.
• Battery performance decreases with temperature. In cold environments, we recommend keeping
spare batteries in a warm place, such as the inside of a coat. Batteries can recover their power
when they warm up.
• Do not store the battery when it is fully charged.
• When storing the battery for extended periods, recharge it for five minutes every six months. The
battery may not be able to be charged if completely exhausted. Store batteries within -20°C to
35°C (-4°F to 95°F).
• A special built-in battery supplies power to the clock and memory when the camera is off or the
lithium-ion battery is removed. The main lithium-ion battery is used to charge the internal battery;
charging time is approximately twenty-four hours. The internal battery protects the camera
memory between eight and twenty-four hours with the lens cover closed. If internal battery is
exhausted, it must be replaced at a Konica Minolta service facility.
• Keep battery and camera charger contacts clean. Dirty contacts can prevent charging. If the
contacts become dirty, wipe them with a cotton swab.
Before important events and journeys
• Check the camera’s operation; take test pictures and purchase spare batteries.
• Konica Minolta has no responsibility for any damage or loss incurred by equipment malfunction.
