Precautions
USE & LOCATION
• TO AVOID SHOCK HAZARD ... Your Digital Camera and power supply should not be exposed to
rain or moisture. Do not connect the power supply or operate your Digital Camera if it gets wet. Your
Digital Camera has been designed for outdoor use, however it is not designed to sustain direct
exposure to water, rain, sleet, snow, sand, dust, or a direct splashing from a pool or even a cup of
coffee. This action could permanently damage the internal parts of your Digital Camera. Do not
attempt to disassemble this unit. There are no user serviceable parts inside. Unplug your Digital
Camera from the power supply and have it serviced.
• DO NOT AIM YOUR DIGITAL CAMERA AT THE SUN OR OTHER BRIGHT OBJECTS.
• DO NOT EXPOSE YOUR DIGITAL CAMERA TO EXTENDED HIGH TEMPERATURE ... Such as,
in direct sunlight, inside a closed car, next to a heater, etc... This action could permanently damage
the internal parts of your Digital Camera.
• AVOID SUDDEN CHANGES IN TEMPERATURE ... If the unit is suddenly moved from a cold place
to a warm place, moisture may form inside the unit.
• DO NOT LEAVE YOUR DIGITAL CAMERA OR THE POWER SUPPLY TURNED ON WHEN NOT
IN USE.
• STORAGE OF YOUR DIGITAL CAMERA ... Store and handle your Digital Camera in a manner that
will not subject it to unnecessary movement (avoid shaking and striking). Your Digital Camera

Battery Pack Notes
Caution:
• Charge only with specified charger.
• The Battery can be charged within a
temperature range of 32° F (0° C) and
104° F (40° C).
• The Battery Pack may be warm after
charging or just after use. This is normal.
• Do not use an insufficiently charged or
worn out Battery Pack.
Safety precautions:
• Do not get the Battery Pack or AA alkaline
batteries near, or dispose of in fire.
• Do not directly connect (short circuit) the
positive (+) and negative (–) terminals.
• Never attempt to disassemble or reassemble the Battery Pack.
To avoid damage to the Battery Pack:
• Do not drop or jar the Battery Pack.
• Use the Battery Pack with specified units
only.
To insure longer Battery Pack life:
• While not in use, remove the Battery Pack
from the Digital Camera and store in a
dark, cool, dry place.
• Keep the Battery Pack terminals clean.
CAUTION
Discharge the remaining voltage of the
Battery Pack completely before charging.
This is vital to maintain battery life and
the operation time due to characteristics
of the battery.
Do not remove the Digital Camera while
charging is in progress.

Slide the CHARGE switch.
The CHARGE Lamp lights orange, and
then changes to green when charging is

• With a fully charged Battery Pack, you will
have a maximum of about 50 minutes*1 of
continuous playback(77°F/25°C).
*1 When playback 1 image every 60 seconds.

• The useful operation time of the Battery
will gradually decrease after repeated use
and recharging. The Battery is no longer
serviceable if the operation time is very
short, even after a sufficient charge.
• Instead of the supplied Battery Pack, you
can also use AA type Lithium batteries*2,
Ni-Cd (high density type) or nickel-hydride
batteries available on the market.
*2 In places where the temperature is
50°F(10°C) and below, the battery's
characteristic use time is shortened.
A exclusive nickel-cadmium battery pack
is recommended in lower temperatures.
• For emergency use you can install
2 alkaline batteries. But, due to power
consumption and shorter operation life of
alkaline batteries compared to the
supplied rechargeable battery pack, it is
strongly recommended that only the
Optical Viewfinder (turn off the LCD
Viewfinder) be used to capture images
when using alkaline batteries.
• If you are not going to use the Digital
Camera for an extended period of time,
remove the Battery Pack from the Digital
Camera.
