Cautions

To ensure continued enjoyment of your Nikon product, observe the following
precautions when storing or using the device:

Keep dry

The device will be damaged if
immersed in water or subjected to
high levels of moisture.

Handle the lens and all moving
parts with care

Do not apply force to the lens or
lens cover, or to the connector, card
slot, or battery chamber covers.
These parts are especially suscepti-
ble to damage.

Turn the product off before
removing or disconnecting the
power source

Do not unplug the product or
remove the batteries while the
product is on, or while images are
being recorded or deleted. Forcibly
cutting power in these circum-
stances could result in loss of data
or in damage to product memory or
internal circuitry. To prevent an acci-
dental interruption of power, avoid
carrying the product from one
place to another while the AC
adapter (available separately) is
connected.

Do not drop

The product may malfunction if sub-
jected to strong shocks or vibration.

Keep away from strong mag-
netic fields

Do not use or store this device in
the vicinity of equipment that gen-
erates strong electromagnetic radia-
tion or magnetic fields. Strong static
charges or the magnetic fields pro-
duced by equipment such as radio
transmitters could interfere with the
monitor, damage data stored on the
memory card, or affect the prod-
uct’s internal circuitry.

Avoid sudden changes in tem-
perature

Sudden changes in temperature,
such as occur when entering or leav-
ing a heated building on a cold day,
can cause condensation inside the
device. To prevent condensation,
place the device in a carrying case or
a plastic bag before exposing it to
sudden changes in temperature.

Do not point the lens at strong
light sources for extended peri-
ods

Avoid pointing the lens at the sun
or other strong light sources for
extended periods when using or
storing the camera. Intense light
may cause deterioration in the CCD
image sensor, producing a white
blur effect in photographs.
