Safety Precautions
• To protect the high-precision technology contained in this product, never 
leave the camera in the places listed below, no matter if in use or storage:
• Places where temperatures and/or humidity are high or go through 
extreme changes. Direct sunlight, beaches, locked cars, or near other 
heat sources (stove, radiator, etc.) or humidifiers.
• In sandy or dusty environments.
• Near flammable items or explosives.
• In wet places, such as bathrooms or in the rain. When using products with 
weatherproof designs, read their manuals as well.
• In places prone to strong vibrations.
• Never drop the camera or subject it to severe shocks or vibrations.
• When mounted on a tripod, adjust the position of the camera with the tripod 
head. Do not twist the camera.
• Do not touch electric contacts on cameras.
• Do not leave the camera pointed directly at the sun. This may cause lens or 
shutter curtain damage, color failure, ghosting on the CCD, or may possibly 
cause fires.
• Do not push or pull severely on the lens.
• Before storing the camera for a long period, remove the battery. Select a 
cool, dry location for storage to prevent condensation or mold from forming 
inside the camera. After storage, test the camera by turning it on and 
pressing the shutter release button to make sure that it is operating normally.
• Always observe the operating environment restrictions described in the 
camera’s manual.
• Olympus NiMH batteries (included in some areas) are intended for use only 
with Olympus digital cameras. Never use these batteries with any other 
• Always charge NiMH batteries (included in some areas) before using them 
for the first time, or if they have not been used for a long period.
• Always charge sets of batteries (included in some areas) (2 or 4) together.
• Do not use alkaline batteries unless it is absolutely necessary. In some 
cases, alkaline batteries may have a shorter service life than NiMH or CR-
V3 lithium battery packs. Alkaline battery performance is limited, especially 
at low temperatures. The use of NiMH batteries is recommended.
• AA manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries cannot be used with this camera.
• When operating the camera with battery power at low temperatures, try to 
keep the camera and spare batteries as warm as possible. Batteries which 
run down at low temperatures may be restored after they are warmed at 
room temperature.
