the hot shoe is minus) cannot be used due to the risk
of damaging the camera and/or flash.
• Do not combine with accessories that have a different
number of contacts, such as a Hot Shoe Grip, as
a malfunction may occur.
• Combining with flashes from other manufacturers may cause
equipment breakdown.
t Memo
• With the AF540FGZ, AF540FGZ II, AF360FGZ, or
AF360FGZ II, you can use the high-speed sync flash to
discharge the flash and take a picture at a shutter speed
faster than 1/180 seconds. Select an exposure mode
(such as I) which allows you to set the shutter speed.
• By using two external flashes (AF540FGZ, AF540FGZ II,
AF360FGZ, or AF360FGZ II) or using the built-in flash with
one or more external flashes, you can use the wireless mode
to shoot in P-TTL flash mode without connecting the flash
units with a cord. In this case, set the camera channel on
the external flashes. The set channel can be checked on
the status screen, Live View screen, LCD panel, and
in the viewfinder.
• You can connect an external flash
to the camera with a sync cord by
using the X-sync socket. Remove
the Sync socket 2P cap to connect
a sync cord to the X-sync socket.

Warning
Appendix
• Do not disassemble or modify the camera. High voltage areas are
present inside the camera, with the risk of electric shock.
• If the camera interior is exposed due to dropping or otherwise damaging
the camera, never touch the exposed portion. There is a risk of electric
shock.
• Do not aim the camera at the sun or other strong light sources when
taking pictures or leave the camera sitting in direct sunlight with the lens
cap off. Doing so may cause the camera to malfunction or cause a fire.
• Do not look at the sun or other strong light sources through the lens.
Doing so may lead to a loss of eyesight or cause vision to be impaired.
• If any irregularities occur during use, such as smoke or a strange odor,
stop use immediately, remove the battery or the AC adapter, and contact
your nearest service center. Continued use can cause a fire or electrical
shock.
Caution
• Do not place your finger over the flash when discharging the flash.
You may burn yourself.
• Do not cover the flash with clothing when discharging the flash.
Discoloration may occur.
• Some portions of the camera heat up during use. There is a risk of low
temperature burns when holding such portions for long periods.
• Should the monitor be damaged, be careful of glass fragments.
Also, be careful not to allow the liquid crystal to get on your skin
or in your eyes or mouth.
• Depending on your individual factors or physical condition, the use
of the camera may cause itching, rashes or blisters. In case of any

About the Battery Charger and AC Adapter
Warning
• Always use the battery charger and AC adapter exclusively developed
for this camera, with the specified power and voltage. Using a battery
charger or AC adapter not exclusive to this camera, or using the
exclusive battery charger or AC adapter with an unspecified power
or voltage can cause a fire, electric shock, or camera breakdown.
The specified voltage is 100 - 240V AC.
• Do not disassemble or modify the product. This can cause a fire
or electrical shock.
• If the generation of smoke or strange odor from the product or other
abnormality occurs, immediately discontinue using and consult your
nearest service center. Continued use can cause a fire or electrical
shock.
• If water should happen to get inside the product, consult your nearest
service center. Continued use can cause a fire or electrical shock.
• If you see a lightning flash or hear thunder during use of the battery
charger or AC adapter, unplug the power plug and discontinue use.
Continued use can cause damage to the product, fire or electrical shock.
• Wipe off the power plug if it should become covered with dust.
Accumulated dust may cause a fire.
• To reduce the risk of hazards, use only CSA/UL certified power supply
cord set, cord is Type SPT-2 or heavier, minimum NO.18 AWG copper,
one end with a molded-on male attachment plug cap (with a specified
NEMA configuration), and the other is provided with a molded-on female

or the equivalent.
Caution
• Do not place or drop heavy objects on or forcefully bend the AC plug
cord. Doing so may damage the cord. Should the AC plug cord be
damaged, consult your nearest service center.
• Do not touch or short-circuit the terminal area of the AC plug cord while
the cord is plugged in.
• Do not handle the power plug with wet hands. This can cause an electric
shock.
• Do not drop the product, or subject it to violent impact. This can cause
the product to breakdown.

recommended.
• The AC plug cord provided with this camera is developed exclusively
for the battery charger D-BC90. Do not use it with other devices.

WARRANTY POLICY
6
Appendix
106
All our cameras purchased through authorized bona fide
photographic distribution channels are guaranteed against
defects of material or workmanship for a period of twelve
months from the date of your purchase. Service will be
rendered, and defective parts will be replaced without cost
to you within that period, provided the camera does not show
evidence of impact, sand or liquid damage, mishandling,
tampering, battery or chemical corrosion, operation contrary to
operating instructions, or modification by an unauthorized repair
shop. The manufacturer or its authorized representatives shall
not be liable for any repair or alterations except those made with
its written consent and shall not be liable for damages from
delay or loss of use or from other indirect or consequential
damages of any kind, whether caused by defective material
or workmanship or otherwise; and it is expressly agreed that
the liability of the manufacturer or its representatives under
all guarantees or warranties, whether expressed or implied,
is strictly limited to the replacement of parts as hereinbefore
provided. No refunds will be made on repairs by non-authorized
service facilities.
Procedure During 12-month Warranty Period
Any camera which proves defective during the 12-month
warranty period should be returned to the dealer from whom you
purchased the camera or to the manufacturer. If there are no
representatives of the manufacturer in your country, send the
camera to the manufacturer, with postage prepaid. In this case,
it will take a considerable length of time before the camera can
be returned to you owing to the complicated customs
procedures required. If the camera is covered by warranty,
repairs will be made and parts replaced free of charge, and
the camera will be returned to you upon completion of servicing.
If the camera is not covered by warranty, regular charges of
the manufacturer or of its representatives will apply. Shipping
charges are to be borne by the owner. If your camera was
purchased outside of the country where you wish to have it
serviced during the warranty period, regular handling and
servicing fees may be charged by the manufacturer’s
representatives in that country. Notwithstanding this, your
camera returned to the manufacturer will be serviced free
of charge according to this procedure and warranty policy.
In any case, however, shipping charges and customs clearance
fees to be borne by the sender. To prove the date of your
purchase when required, please keep the receipt or bills
covering the purchase of your camera for at least a year.
Before sending your camera for servicing, please make sure
that you are sending it to the manufacturer’s authorized
representatives or their approved repair shops, unless you
are sending it directly to the manufacturer. Always obtain
a quotation for the service charge, and only after you accept
the quoted service charge, instruct the service station
to proceed with the servicing.
• This warranty policy does not affect the customer’s statutory
rights.
• The local warranty policies available from our distributors
in some countries can supersede this warranty policy.
Therefore, we recommend that you review the warranty
card supplied with your product at the time of purchase,
or contact our distributor in your country for more information
and to receive a copy of the warranty policy.

Used electrical/electronic equipment and
batteries must be treated separately and in
accordance with legislation that requires proper
treatment, recovery and recycling of these
products.
By disposing of these products correctly you will
help ensure that the waste undergoes the
necessary treatment, recovery and recycling
and thus prevent potential negative effects on
the environment and human health which could
otherwise arise due to inappropriate waste
handling.
If a chemical symbol is added beneath the symbol shown
above, in accordance with the Battery Directive, this indicates
that a heavy metal (Hg = Mercury, Cd = Cadmium, Pb = Lead)
is present in the battery at a concentration above an applicable
threshold specified in the Battery Directive.
For more information about collection and recycling of used
products, please contact your local authorities, your waste
disposal service or the point of sale where you purchased
