Olympus fe-300 Introduction Manual (en)

• This camera uses a lithium ion battery specified by Olympus. Do not use any other type of battery. 
For safe and proper use, read the battery’s instruction manual carefully before using it.
• If the battery’s terminals get wet or greasy, camera contact failure may result. Wipe the battery well 
with a dry cloth before use.
• Always charge a battery when using it for the first time, or if it has not been used for a long period.
• When operating the camera with battery power at low temperatures, try to keep the camera and 
spare battery as warm as possible. A battery that has run down at low temperatures may be 
restored after it is warmed at room temperature.
• The number of pictures you can take may vary depending on the shooting conditions or battery.
• Before going on a long trip, and especially before traveling abroad, purchase extra batteries. A 
recommended battery may be difficult to obtain while traveling.
• Please recycle batteries to help save our planet’s resources. When you throw away dead batteries, 
be sure to cover their terminals and always observe local laws and regulations.
• Do not push the monitor forcibly; otherwise the image may become vague, resulting in a playback 
mode failure or damage to the monitor.
• A strip of light may appear on the top/bottom of the monitor, but this is not a malfunction.
• When a subject is viewed diagonally in the camera, the edges may appear zigzagged on the 
monitor. This is not a malfunction; it will be less noticeable in playback mode.
• In places subject to low temperatures, the LCD monitor may take a long time to turn on or its color 
may change temporarily. When using the camera in extremely cold places, it is a good idea to 
occasionally place it in a warm place. An LCD monitor exhibiting poor performance due to low 
temperatures will recover in normal temperatures.
• The LCD used for the monitor is made with high-precision technology. However, black spots or 
bright spots of light may appear constantly on the LCD Monitor. Due to its characteristics or the 
angle at which you are viewing the monitor, the spot may not be uniform in color and brightness. 
This is not a malfunction.
