battery, and set the camera aside in room temperature to allow the
condensation to naturally evaporate before using the camera again.
C
Y
P
O
Battery
z Keep the battery terminals clean at all times.
Dirty terminals may cause poor contact between the battery and
camera. Polish the terminals with a soft cotton swab before charging
or using the battery.
z At low temperatures, battery performance may be reduced and
the low battery icon
(blinks red) may appear earlier than
usual.
Under these conditions, restore the battery performance by warming it
in a pocket immediately before use.
z Do not put the battery into a pocket together with metallic
items such as a key ring.
The battery may be short circuiting.
211
