Be sure to observe the following precautions!
This unit contains precision electronic components. Do not use or store this
unit in the following locations.
Areas exposed to severe changes in temperature and humidity.
Areas exposed to dust and dirt.
Areas exposed to direct sunlight or the inside of a vehicle in hot weather.
Environments where there is high magnetism or excessive vibration.
Areas with high explosives or highly flammable materials.
Do not leave this camera in places subject to dust, chemicals (like
naphthalene and mothball), high temperature and high humidity. Keep this
camera in a hermetically sealed box with silica gel when not planning to use
it for a long period.
Sand can be particularly troublesome to cameras.
Do not let sand get inside the unit when using it on beaches, coastal
dunes, or other areas where there is lots of sand.
Doing so may result in failure or may permanently render the unit
Handling the camera
Never drop the camera or subject it to severe shocks or vibrations.
Protect the large size LCD monitor from impact. When this camera is not
used, keep this camera in the camera case.
Avoid obstructing the lens or the flash when you capture an image.
This camera is not waterproof. To avoid dangerous electrical shocks,
never hold or operate the camera with wet hands.
If you use this camera in wet places, such as beach or pool, do not let
water or sand get inside the camera. Doing so may result in failure or may
permanently damage the unit.
Extremes in temperature may cause problems.
If the camera is transferred from a cold to a warm and humid environment,
condensation can form on the delicate electronic circuitry. If this occurs,
turn the camera off and wait for at least 1 hour until all moisture is
dispersed. Moisture build up can also occur in the memory card. If this
happens, turn off the camera and remove the memory card. Wait until the
moisture has dispersed.
Caution on Using the Lens
If the lens is subjected to direct sunlight, it could result in discoloration
and deterioration of the image sensor.
Don’t get fingerprints or foreign substances on the surface of the lens.
If the digital camera is not used for a long period, an electric discharge can
occur. It is a good idea to remove the batteries and the memory card if you
do not intend using the camera for an extended period of time.
If the camera is exposed to an electronic interference, it will turn itself off to
protect the memory card.
