Nikon D800 User Manual (en)

: When cleaning the camera body, use a blower to gently remove 
dust and lint, then wipe gently with a soft, dry cloth. After using the 
camera at the beach or seaside, wipe off any sand or salt using a cloth 
lightly dampened in pure water and then dry the camera thoroughly. In 
rare instances, static electricity may cause the LCD displays to light up or 
go dark. This does not indicate a malfunction, and the display will soon 
return to normal.
The lens and mirror are easily damaged. Dust and lint should be gently 
removed with a blower. When using an aerosol blower, keep the can 
vertical to prevent discharge of liquid. To remove fingerprints and other 
stains from the lens, apply a small amount of lens cleaner to a soft cloth 
and wipe the lens carefully.
See “The Low-Pass Filter” (
0 394) for information on cleaning the low-pass 
Lens contacts
: Keep the lens contacts clean.
Do not touch the shutter curtain
: The shutter curtain is extremely thin and easily 
damaged. Under no circumstances should you exert pressure on the 
curtain, poke it with cleaning tools, or subject it to powerful air currents 
from a blower. These actions could scratch, deform, or tear the curtain.
The shutter curtain may appear to be unevenly colored, but this has no 
affect on pictures and does not indicate a malfunction.
: To prevent mold or mildew, store the camera in a dry, well-
ventilated area. If you are using an AC adapter, unplug the adapter to 
prevent fire. If the product will not be used for an extended period, 
remove the battery to prevent leakage and store the camera in a plastic 
bag containing a desiccant. Do not, however, store the camera case in a 
plastic bag, as this may cause the material to deteriorate. Note that 
desiccant gradually loses its capacity to absorb moisture and should be 
replaced at regular intervals.
To prevent mold or mildew, take the camera out of storage at least once a 
month. Turn the camera on and release the shutter a few times before 
putting it away.
Store the battery in a cool, dry place. Replace the terminal cover before 
putting the battery away.
