Notes About Shockproof Performance

This camera has passed Nikon’s in-house test (drop test from a height of 1.5 m (5 ft) on a 5 cm 
(2 in.) thick plywood panel) compliant with MIL-STD 810F Method 516.5-Shock*.

This test does not guarantee the waterproof performance of the camera or that the camera 
will be free from damage or trouble under all conditions.

Changes in appearance, such as paint peeling off and deformation of the drop shock portion 
are not subject to the Nikon’s in-house test.

* U.S. Department of Defense test method standard.

This drop test drops 5 cameras in 26 directions (8 edges, 12 corners, and 6 faces) from a height of 
122 cm (48 in.) to make sure that one to five cameras pass the test (if any defect is detected during 
the test, another five cameras are tested to make sure that the test criteria are satisfied for one to 
five cameras).

bDo not subject the camera to excessive shock, vibration or pressure by dropping 

or hitting it.

Failure to observe this precaution could cause water to seep inside the camera and result in 
camera malfunction.
• Do not use the camera deeper than 10 m (33 ft) underwater.

• Do not subject the camera to water pressure by exposing it to high-pressure running 


• Do not sit down with the camera in the pocket of your trousers.

Do not forcibly stuff the camera into a bag.
