Nikon Nikon 1 AW1 Reference Manual (en)

• Do not expose the camera to water colder than 0 °C (32 °F) or
warmer than 40 °C (104 °F). Do not take into hot springs or baths.
• Do not dive into the water with the camera, drop it, place it under
heavy objects, or otherwise subject it to violent shocks or exces-
sive physical pressure or force. The camera may deform and
become vulnerable to leaks under excessive external pressure.
• Failure to follow correct procedures before or during use could
result in irreparable damage to the product due to water entry.
Should the product leak, cease use immediately, dry the camera
and lens, and consult a Nikon-authorized service representative.
• The camera does not float. Be careful not to drop the camera
while in or on the water.
• Condensation may form inside the lens or monitor if the prod-
uct is exposed to rapid changes in temperature, such as occur
when the product is taken into cold water from a hot shore
location, into a warm room from a cold exterior, or the battery-
chamber/memory card slot cover is opened or closed or lenses
are attached or removed in a humid location. Such condensa-
tion will not cause malfunction or other damage.
