Pentax K-5 II User Manual (en)

• Do not subject the camera to high temperatures or high humidity. Do not 
leave the camera in a vehicle, as the temperature can get very high.
• Do not subject the camera to strong vibrations, shocks, or pressure. Use a 
cushion to protect the camera from vibrations of motorcycles, automobiles, 
or ships.
• The temperature range for camera use is -10°C to 40°C (14°F to 104°F).
• The monitor may appear black at high temperatures, but will return to normal 
at normal temperatures.
• The monitor may respond more slowly at low temperatures. This is due to 
liquid crystal properties, and is not a malfunction. 
• Sudden temperature changes will cause condensation on the inside and 
outside of the camera. Place the camera in your bag or a plastic bag, and 
remove it after temperatures of the camera and surroundings are equalized. 
• Avoid contact with garbage, mud, sand, dust, water, toxic gases, or salt. 
These could cause the camera to breakdown. Wipe the camera to dry off any 
rain or water drops.

temperatures and high humidity can cause mold to grow on the camera.
