(Important) About the Waterproof/
Waterproof/Dustproof Performance
This unit’s waterproof/dustproof rating complies with the “IP58” rating. Provided the care
and maintenance guidelines described in this document are strictly followed, this unit
can operate underwater, to a depth not exceeding 1.5 m for a time not exceeding
30 minutes. *
This does not guarantee no destruction, no malfunction, or waterproofing in all conditions.
* This means that this unit can be used underwater for specified time in specified pressure in
accordance with the handling method established by Panasonic.
∫ Handling of this unit
≥ Waterproofing is not guaranteed if the unit is subject to an impact as a result of being hit or
dropped etc. If an impact to this unit occurs, it should be inspected (subject to a fee) by a
Panasonic’s Service Centre to verify that the waterproofing is still effective.
≥ The waterproof performance may be degraded due to the strong water pressure when this unit is
used deeper than 1.5 m underwater.
≥ When this unit is splashed with detergent, soap, hot spring, bath additive, sun oil, sun screen,
chemical, etc., wipe it off immediately.
≥ Do not rinse with running water, such as tap water.
≥ Waterproof function of this unit is for sea water and fresh water only.
≥ Any malfunction caused by customer misuse, or mishandling will not be covered by the warranty.
≥ Cards are not waterproof. Do not handle with a wet hand. Also, do not insert wet card into this
≥ Do not open or close the side cover when your hands are wet or water droplets are present on
this unit. Failure to do so may lead to damage such as rusty terminals caused by water droplets.
≥ Foreign objects may adhere to the inner side of the side cover (around the rubber seal or
connecting terminals) when the side cover is opened or closed in places with sand or dust
etc. If you close the side cover with foreign objects adhering to it, water may enter the
inside. Be very careful because doing so may cause malfunctions.
≥ Do not leave this unit for a long period of time in places where temperature is very low (at high
altitude etc.) or very high (inside a car under strong sunlight, close to a heater, on the beach, etc.)
Waterproof performance may be degraded.
≥ The inside of this unit is not waterproof. Water leakage will cause malfunction.
≥ If any foreign object has adhered to the inner side of the side cover, remove it.
≥ If any liquid such as water droplets has adhered to this unit or inner side of the side cover,
wipe off with a soft dry cloth. Do not open or close the side cover near the water, when
underwater, using wet hands, or when this unit is wet. It may cause water leakage.
HX-A100_VQT4X90_mst.book 7 ページ 2013年1月22日 火曜日 午後8時8分
∫ When inner side of the lens is fogged (condensation)
Condensation may occur and the inner side of the lens may be fogged when this unit is moved to a
warm area from a cold area, such as at high altitude.
It is not a malfunction or failure of this unit. It may be caused by the environment in which
this unit is used.
≥ Be careful of condensation since it causes lens stains, fungus and unit malfunction.
What to do when inner side of the lens is fogged
≥ Turn off this unit and open the side cover in a place with constant ambient temperature, away
from high temperatures, humidity, sand and dust. The fog will disappear naturally in about 2 hours
with the side cover open when the temperature of this unit gets close to the ambient temperature.
≥ Contact Panasonic’s Service Centre if the fogging does not disappear.
Check before using underwater
Do not open or close the side cover in places with sand and dust, close to water, or with wet
hands. Sand or dust adhering may cause water leaks.
Open the side cover.
Slide the LOCK switch A to the left to
unlock the side cover.
B: Unlocked when the red indicator is visible
2 Slide the side cover downward to
open it.
Check that there are no foreign objects on the inner side of the side cover.
≥ If there are any foreign objects, such as lint, hair, sand, etc., on the surrounding area, water will
leak within a few seconds causing malfunction.
If there is foreign matter adhering to the unit, remove it.
≥ Be extremely careful to remove any sand etc. that may adhere to the sides and corners of the
rubber seal.
≥ Wipe it off with a dry soft cloth if there is any liquid. It may cause water leaks and malfunction if
you use this unit with liquid adhered.
Check for cracks and deformation of the rubber seal on the side cover.
≥ The integrity of the rubber seals may decrease after about 1 year, with use and age. To avoid
permanently damaging this unit the seals should be replaced once every two years. Please
contact Panasonic’s Service Centre for related costs and other information.
Close the side cover securely.
Close the side cover and slide it
Slide the LOCK switch to the right to
lock the side cover.
≥ Lock securely to the points where the
red portion of the LOCK switch is no
longer visible.
≥ Securely close it until it clicks.
≥ To prevent water seeping into this unit, be careful not to trap foreign objects such as
liquids, sand, hair or dust etc.
HX-A100_VQT4X90_mst.book 8 ページ 2013年1月22日 火曜日 午後8時8分
Using this unit underwater
≥ Use this unit underwater at a depth of down to 1.5 m with the water temperature between 0 oC
and 35 oC.
≥ Do not use this unit at a depth of over 1.5 m.
≥ Do not use it in hot water over 35 oC (in a bath or hot spring).
≥ Do not use this unit underwater not longer than 30 minutes continuously.
≥ Do not open or close the side cover.
≥ Do not apply shock to this unit underwater. (Waterproof performance may not be maintained, and
there is a chance of water leak.)
≥ Do not dive into the water holding this unit. Do not use this unit in a location where the water will
splash strongly, such as rapid flow or waterfall. (Strong water pressure may be applied, and it may
cause malfunction.)
≥ This unit will sink in the water. Take care not to drop this unit.
Caring for this unit after using it underwater
Do not open or close the side cover until the sand and dust is removed by rinsing the
camera with water.
Make sure to clean the camera after using it.
≥ Thoroughly wipe off any water droplets, sand, and saline matter on your hands, body, hair, etc.
≥ It is recommended to clean the camera indoors, avoiding places where water spray or sand may fall.
Do not leave this unit uncared for longer than 60 minutes after using it underwater.
≥ Leaving this unit with foreign objects or saline matter on it may cause damage, discolouration,
corrosion, unusual odour, or deterioration of the waterproof performance.
Rinse with water with the side cover closed.
≥ After use at the seaside or underwater, soak the unit in fresh water pooled in a shallow container
for about 10 minutes.
Drain water by holding this unit and shaking it lightly a few times.
≥ After using this unit at the seaside or underwater, or after washing it, water will remain at
the speaker site or mic site of this unit for a while and it may cause lower sound or sound
≥ Pay careful attention to prevent this unit from dropping.
Wipe off water drops on this unit with a soft, dry cloth and dry this unit in a
shaded area that is well ventilated.
≥ Dry this unit approx. 1 hour or more.
≥ Dry this unit on a dry cloth.
≥ Do not dry this unit with hot air from dryer or similar. It will deteriorate the waterproof performance
or cause failure due to deformation.
≥ Do not use chemicals such as benzine, thinner, alcohol or cleanser, soap or detergents.
Confirm that there are no water droplets, open the side cover, and wipe off
any water droplets or sand left inside using a soft, dry cloth.
≥ Water droplets may adhere to the card, etc. when the side cover is opened without thoroughly
drying. Also, water may accumulate in the gap around the card slot or the terminal connector. Be
sure to wipe any water off with a soft, dry cloth.
≥ The water droplets may seep into this unit when the side cover is closed while it is still wet,
causing condensation or failure.
In case water enters this unit, stop the use and consult your dealer.
Malfunctions resulting from water leakage due to wrong handling by customers are not subject to
