Using or storing the camera
Inappropriate places to use or store the camera
•  Avoid exposing the camera to very cold or very hot temperatures.
•  Avoid using your camera in areas with extremely high humidity, or where the 
humidity changes drastically.
•  Avoid exposing the camera to direct sunlight and storing it in hot, poorly-
ventilated areas, such as in a car during summer time.
•  Protect your camera and the display from impact, rough handling, and excessive 
vibration to avoid serious damage.
•  Avoid using or storing your camera in dusty, dirty, humid, or poorly-ventilated 
areas to prevent damage to moving parts and internal components.
•  Do not use your camera near fuels, combustibles, or flammable chemicals. Do 
not store or carry flammable liquids, gases, or explosive materials in the same 
compartment as the camera or its accessories.
•  Do not store the camera where there are mothballs.
Using on beaches or shores
•  Protect your camera from sand and dirt when you use it on beaches or in similar 
areas.
•  Your camera is not waterproof. Do not handle the battery, adapter, or memory 
card with wet hands. Operating the camera with wet hands may cause damage to 
your camera.
Storing for extended period of time
•  When you store the camera for an extended period, place it in a sealed container 
with an absorbent material, such as silica gel.
•  Over time, unused batteries will discharge and must be recharged before use.
•  You must reset the date and time when you turn the camera on after the camera 
and battery have been separated for a prolonged period.
Using the camera with caution in humid environments
When you transfer the camera from a cold environment to a warm one, 
condensation can form on the lens or internal components of the camera. In this 
situation, turn off the camera and wait for at least 1 hour. If condensation forms 
on the memory card, remove the memory card from the camera and wait until all 
moisture has evaporated before reinserting it.
Other cautions
•  Do not swing your camera by the strap. This may cause injury to yourself or others 
or damage to your camera.
•  Do not paint your camera, as paint can clog moving parts and prevent proper 
operation.
•  Turn off the camera when not using it.
•  Your camera contains delicate parts. Avoid impacts to the camera.
