chemical, etc., wipe it off immediately. •After use at the seaside or underwater, soak the unit in fresh water pooled in a shallow container for 10 minutes
or less. Do not leave uncared for more than 60 minutes after using underwater. It may cause deterioration of the waterproof performance. •Foreign
materials may be attached if the zoom lever or mode dial does not move smoothly. Soak the unit in fresh water, shake it well and then wash the zoom

About the performance of Face Recognition function
Recognition performance varies greatly depending on shooting conditions, i.e., according to factors such as angles, facial expression and lighting, so
operation under all conditions cannot be guaranteed. Because the camera searches for faces that are similar to registered faces, there are cases where
the faces are not correctly recognized when the registered image and the shooting image varies much. When facial characteristics are similar, particularly
between parents and their children or brothers and sisters, the camera may not distinguish the faces.
