On operating temperatures
Your camera is designed for use under the

104°F). Shooting in extremely cold or hot places 
that exceed this range is not recommended.
On moisture condensation
If the camera is brought directly from a cold to a 
warm location, moisture may condense inside or 
outside the camera. This moisture condensation

as a ski slope into a warmly heated room.
• The camera is taken from an air-conditioned 
room or car interior to the hot outdoors, etc.

moisture to evaporate. Note that if you attempt to 
shoot with moisture remaining inside the lens, you 
will be unable to record clear images.
