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

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

Notes for Modem Communication
• Depending on the area, the line situation may be poor making communication
impossible.
• It is not possible to call from an extension line.
(However, it is possible to call from an extension line to an outside line. In this case,
it may be impossible to make a normal call. If you cannot call normally, set the PC
modem not to detect dial tone from the PC modem settings. To change the PC modem
settings, refer to the PC modem operating instructions.)
Also, when you call from an extension line to an outside line, please enter the extension
transmit number to the settings of this application beforehand.
• When you communicate with the Camera using this application, it is recommended to
use a direct outside line as much as possible.
• A multi-line phone that requires line number selection before calling cannot be used.
• While long distance calls usually require a "1" before the area code. With Windows,
the "1" is added automatically, so please do not enter "1" before the number.
(adding "1" may result in a wrong number.)
• It may not possible to call normally when the application for modem use is already
running. In this case, exit the application and try to place the call again.
• Use this application to communicate with the Camera only.
• When you communicate with the Camera using this application, depending on the line
situation, failure may occur during communication. In this case, please exit the
communication and try again later.
• When you transfer Fine or Super Fine mode images, it may take long time, depending
on the line situation. In this case, please exit the communication and try again later.
• If you are using a phone line with call waiting, and use this application to communicate
with the Camera, incoming calls may cause disconnection during communication.
In this case, please try again later.
• It is recommended that an AC Adaptor (optional) be used for communicating with the
Camera using this application. If a battery is used, it may become depleted during
communication.
• Insert the modular cable securely into the modular box until it clicks.
• Even when the cable is correctly connected, the connections inside the box may not
have a good contact. If, even though there is no dial tone, the application dials, but
connection with the Camera cannot be made, the cable in the box may loose contact.
In this case, while firmly pressing the cable deep into the box, try calling again.
• It is not possible to communicate with the Camera with this application using a answering
phone or voice mail line.
• If your PC modem has an answering machine function and you use this application,
set the call capacity on the answering machine to at least 5.
