Store the battery in a cool and dry place with a relatively stable temperature: (Recommended 
temperature: 15
oC to 25 oC (59 oF to 77 oF), Recommended humidity: 40%RH to 60%RH)
Always remove the battery and the card from the camera.
If the battery is left inserted in the camera, it will discharge even if the camera is turned off. If 
the battery continues to be left in the camera, it will discharge excessively and may become 
unusable even if charged.
When storing the battery for a long period of time, we recommend charging it once a year. 
Remove the battery from the camera and store it again after it has completely discharged.
We recommend storing the camera with a desiccant (silica gel) when you keep it in a closet or 
a cabinet.
Check all the parts before taking pictures when you have not used the camera for a long 
period of time.
Recorded data may be damaged or lost if the camera breaks down due to inappropriate 
handling. Panasonic will not be liable for any damage caused due to loss of recorded data.
When you use a tripod, make sure the tripod is stable when this unit is attached to it.
You may not be able to remove the card or the battery when using a tripod or unipod.
Make sure that the screw on the tripod or unipod is not at an angle when attaching or detaching 
the camera. You may damage the screw on the camera if you use excessive force when 
turning it. Also, the camera body and the rating label may be damaged or scratched if the 
camera is attached too tightly to the tripod or unipod.
When using this unit with a large-diameter lens, the lens may come into contact with the 
pedestal depending on the tripod/unipod. Tightening the screw with the lens and pedestal in 
contact with each other may damage this unit or the lens. Therefore it is recommended to 
attach the tripod adaptor (DMW-TA1; optional) before mounting on the tripod/unipod.
Read the operating instructions for the tripod or unipod carefully.
If you attach a heavy interchangeable lens (more than about 1 kg/35.3 oz) to the camera body, 
do not carry the camera by the shoulder strap. Hold the camera and the lens when carrying
