Caring for the Product




l Not




Observe the precautions described below in addition to the warnings in “For 
Your Safety” (

Av–vii) when using or storing the device.

The Camera

Do Not Apply Strong Impact to the Camera

The product may malfunction if subjected to strong shock or vibration. In addition, 
do not touch or apply force to the lens.

Keep Dry

The device will be damaged if immersed in water or subjected to high humidity.

Avoid Sudden Changes in Temperature

Sudden changes in temperature, such as when entering or leaving a heated building 
on a cold day, can cause condensation to form 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.

Keep Away from Strong Magnetic Fields

Do not use or store this device in the vicinity of equipment that generates strong 
electromagnetic radiation or magnetic fields. Doing so could result in loss of data or 
camera malfunction.

Do Not Point the Lens at Strong Light Sources for Extended Periods

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 the image sensor to 
deteriorate or produce a white blur effect in photographs.

Turn the Product Off Before Removing or Disconnecting the Power 
Source or Memory Card

Do not remove the batteries while the product is on, or while images are being saved 
or deleted. Forcibly cutting power in these circumstances could result in loss of data 
or in damage to product memory or internal circuitry.

Notes About the Monitor

• Monitors and electronic viewfinders are constructed with extremely high precision; 

at least 99.99% of pixels are effective, with no more than 0.01% being missing or 
defective. Hence while these displays may contain pixels that are always lit (white, 
red, blue, or green) or always off (black), this is not a malfunction and has no effect 
on images recorded with the device.

• Images in the monitor may be difficult to see under bright lighting.
• Do not apply pressure to the monitor, as this could cause damage or malfunction. 

Should the monitor break, care should be taken to avoid injury caused by broken 
glass and to prevent the liquid crystal from the display touching the skin or 
entering the eyes or mouth.
