Effective use of the battery
• Battery performance decreases in low-
temperature surroundings, and the battery
life is shortened under such
circumstances. To use the battery longer,
we recommend you keep the battery

P43 only) or something, in a pocket close
to your body to warm it, and insert it in
your camera just before you start
• If you shoot a lot using the flash, the
battery power will be used up faster.
• We recommend having spare batteries
handy for two or three times the expected
shooting time, and try test shooting
before the actually using the camera.
• Do not expose the battery to water. The
battery is not water-resistant.

operating time seems to have been
considerably shortened, a probable cause
is that the battery has reached the end of
