2
The G5WP-SS camera is a waterproof camera. However, even if the
housing is placed on a wet G5WP-SS camera that has been dried,
condensation may form inside the housing and the glass cloud up,
preventing pictures from being taken, due to moisture left remaining
in the gaps between the housing and the camera.
If the camera has been wet, wipe it off with a dry towel or something
similar and let it set it in a cool area out of direct sunlight for 24 hours
or more before attaching the housing.
Turn off the power of the
G5WP-SS camera and place
it as shown in figure
Make sure that there is no
dust or scratches on the
O-ring / O-ring contact surface
before closing the rear cover.
Take the hand strap out, press
the rear cover, and then put
the buckle over the front case

through between the strap, and pull the strap tight as shown.
䃂 Do not use the strap when out of water if using optional accessories (such as a
wide-angle conversion lens, stay, arm, and strobe / light). The increased weight
of the accessories may damage the strap and the strap hook, which may result
in equipment damage / loss or personal injury.
E-13
Operation
Macro Flashlight Diffuser
Use of the macro flashlight diffuser at close distances during macro
shooting enables the light from the built-in flash to disperse and
irradiate objects evenly.
CAUTION
䖃㻌If
the light from the built-in flash appears dark due to the distance between
the camera and subject, shooting conditions, and settings, remove the macro
flashlight diffuser before taking pictures.
䖃㻌If using the SEA&SEA strobe in TTL mode, remove the macro flashlight
diffuser.

Operation
Desiccant Pack (Sillica Gel)
A substantial difference between the external (water) and the internal
(camera and air) temperatures sometimes result in dewfall on the inside
surface of the housing lens. This phenomenon typically happens when
the camera becomes hot due to long and consecutive use.
To mitigate the effect of the dew, use the desiccant pack (included in the
product package) as follows;
Using the desiccant pack (Sillica Gel)
Install the G5WP-SS camera to the housing
Place a desiccant pack (Sillica Gel) at the location as
shown, then close the rear cover
䖃 Make sure that the edge of the desiccant pack is not covering the O-ring contact surface.
䖃 Make sure thet the desiccant pack is not trapped when closing the rear cover.
Precautions for Using the Housing
The G5WP-SS camera is a waterproof camera. However, even if the
housing is placed on a wet G5WP-SS camera that has been dried,
condensation may form inside the housing and the glass cloud up,
preventing pictures from being taken, due to moisture left remaining in
the gaps between the housing and the camera.
If the camera has been wet, wipe it off with a dry towel or something
similar and let it set it in a cool area out of direct sunlight for 24 hours
or more before attaching the housing.

Attaching the Optional Accessories
This product accepts SEA&SEA optional accessories. By using this
product in combination with those accessories, you will be able to try
various shooting techniques.
Lenses, strobes and other accessories have different depth rating. Check the
depth rating for each before use.
䃂 Read the instruction manual for each accessory before use.
䃂
Wide-angle Conversion Lens (Option)
Optional Wide-Angle Conversion Lens for DX-860G (#52115) can be
attached to this product.
Attaching a wide-angle conversion lens and setting the camera to wide
converter mode may cause the four corners of the screen to get dark
(vignetting). Press the Zoom button (T) once and confirm on the LCD
screen that the vignetting in the four corners has been resolved before
taking photographs. The camera angle of view in this state is equivalent
to 28 mm (0.8 times).

English
CAUTION
When using the lens, loosen or lightly shake the lens while underwater to
remove any air trapped between the lens and the housing.
䃂 When the wide-angle conversion lens is used on land, there may be cases
where it is difficult to focus the camera due to effects from the distance
between the camera and subject, shooting conditions, and the like.
䃂
Attaching the Optional Accessories
Accessory shoe
SEA&SEA strobes / lights can be
mounted to the accessory shoe by
using optional Mini Shoe Arm
(#29511) or Hot Shoe Arm
(#29501).
䋼Example䋾
CAUTION
The max. weight of an accessory that can be mounted to the accessory shoe
is approx. 750g / 26.3oz.
䃂 Remove the accessories from the accessory shoe when carrying the housing
out of water.

Attaching the Optional Accessories
Fiber-optic Cable (Option) Connection
This product has a fiber-optic cable
socket for the external strobe
connection.
䋼Example䋾
Cable socket
䇸Retractable Cable Socket䇹䋨P.E-15䋩
Plug the fiber-optic cable connector
fully into the socket as shown.

External strobe works effectively for various
shooting styles such as wide-angle
photography (camera's built-in flash is
insufficient), back-lighting condition,
backscatter elimination, and macro
photography (to acquire greater
brilliance).
E-20
Maintenance and Storage
CAUTION
䃂 Never
use chemicals, cosmetics, any petroleum solvents such as paint thinner,
or neutral detergent on the product. They
may deform and damage the product.
䃂 After each use in salt water, make sure it is
watertight, then soak it sufficiently in fresh
water and rinse with running water.
Operate all the buttons, dials or levers
underwater, but do not operate the buckle /
buckle lock buttons.
䃂㩷Insufficient soaking causes damage by salt to the product. Salty residue may
be left on the product where it will crystallize as it evaporates.
Crystallized salt is hard to dissolve and difficult to be removed once
formed, and it will result in water leakage.
䃂㩷After rinsing, dry the product well with a soft dry cloth, then let the product
dry in the shade, out of direct sunlight.
䃂㩷Do not dry the product by heating (using a hair dryer, for example).
Heating can deform and damage the product.
䃂㩷If you will not use the product for an extended period of time, store it away from
high temperatures, high humidity, direct sunlight, or exterme cold.
䃂㩷Do not store the product with naphthalene or camphor mothballs, or in locations
such as a laboratory where chemicals are used. This environment can cause
mold, rust, corrosion or malfunction.
䃂㩷Always remove the camera from the housing after use. Thoroughly wipe off
water before opening the housing and avoid any water drops inside the housing.
䃂㩷After using the product, maintain the O-rings before storing. Examine the O-rings
before and after each dive. We recommend early exchange of the O-rings, at
least once a year.
䃂㩷Every two years we recommend a complete overhaul of O-rings regardless of
the frequency in use, for the best performance of the product.
