Waterproof management
You can use this camera underwater to a maximum depth of 9.8 feet
(3m) in an ocean, lake, or similar underwater environment for one
hour. To ensure the camera operates properly underwater, you must
practice the correct waterproof management before and after using
the camera, as follows.
Ŷ Before using the camera
1. Make sure that there is no dirt, dust, or sand on the camera and
that the lens is always kept clean.
- If there is foreign matter or moisture on the battery chamber cover
or the USB cover, wipe them with a smooth, lint free cloth. Also
check if there are any scratches on the waterproof seal.
USB cover
Battery chamber cover
Ŷ While using the camera:
- Do not use the camera under water at a depth of more than 9.8 feet
(3m).
- Do not use the camera continuously for over one hour under water.
- Do not open the battery chamber cover and the USB cover under
water.
- Do not use the camera in hot water.
- Do not leave the camera on the sand. Sand may enter the speaker
or the microphone, and the camera may get hot if it is exposed to
direct sunlight for a prolonged time.
- The waterproof performance may deteriorate if the camera is struck,
dropped, subjected to strong pressure or to strong vibration.
- The accessories that came with the camera are not waterproof.
Ŷ After using the camera
1. Make sure that any water and dirt on the camera are removed with
a dry cloth after using the camera under water.
2. Make sure that the battery chamber cover and the USB cover
make a clicking sound when closing them, so that they are firmly
shut.
Ɣ Do not open the battery chamber cover or the USB cover underwater, with a wet hand, or in any environment that has a great
deal of moisture and dirt.
18
2. Ensure the battery chamber cover and the
USB cover are closed, and then wash the
camera with flowing water, making sure
to remove all sand, foreign matter, and
dirt. You can also submerge the camera
in clean water for 2 to 3 minutes before
washing it. See page 19 for details.
- Do not wipe the camera with other
liquids such as soapy water, neutral
detergents, or alcohol.
3. Wipe the camera with a dry cloth, and then dry the camera in a
well ventilated place.
Waterproof management
4. Open the battery compartment and the USB compartment and look for
water drops on the inside of the covers . If there are water drops on
either, use cotton swab to remove the drops before storing the camera.
Ŷ Storage and maintenance
- Do not store the camera in an environment with high or low
temperature. The waterproof function may be damaged.
- Do not use any chemicals to clean, to prevent rust, or to repair the
camera. The waterproof function may be damaged.
- Replace waterproof components once a year to maintain waterproof
performance, since they are consumable parts. Contact your nearest
Samsung service center for the replacement of waterproof components.
Since your camera may fail if you use the camera when foreign
matter is on the camera lens, wash the camera using the following
procedure:
1. Make sure that the battery chamber cover and the USB cover
make a clicking sound when closing them, so that they are firmly
shut.
2. Fill a bucket or a large bowl with
water and submerge the camera in
the water with the camera lens facing
downwards, then shake the camera.
3. If the foreign matter is not removed
in the above procedure, wash the
camera directly under a strong flow of
water.
19
When using the camera for the first time
Charge the rechargeable battery fully before using the camera for
the first time.
Setting up the Time Zone

This unit contains precision electronic components. Do not use or
store this unit in the following locations.
- Areas exposed to severe changes in temperature and humidity.
- Areas exposed to dust and dirt.
- Areas exposed to direct sunlight or the inside of a vehicle in hot
weather.
- Environments where there is high magnetism or excessive vibration.
- Areas with high explosives or highly flammable materials.
Do not leave this camera in places subject to dust, chemicals (like
naphthalene and mothballs), high temperature and high humidity.
Keep this camera with silica gel in a hermetically sealed box when
not planning to use the camera for a long period of time
Sand can be particularly troublesome to cameras.
- Do not let sand get inside the camera when using it on beaches,
coastal dunes, or other areas where there is lots of sand.
- Doing so may result in failure or may permanently render the
camera unusable.
Handling the camera
- Never drop the camera or subject it to severe shocks or vibrations.
- Protect the large size LCD screen from an impact. When this
camera is not used, keep it in the camera case.
- Avoid obstructing the lens or the flash when you capture an image.
87
Important notes
Extremes in temperature may cause problems.
- If the camera is transferred from a cold to a warm and humid
environment, condensation can form on the delicate electronic
circuitry. If this occurs, turn the camera off and wait for at least
1 hour until all moisture is dispersed. Moisture build-up can also
occur on the memory card. If this happens, turn off the
camera and remove the memory card. Wait until the moisture
has evaporated.
Caution on Using the Lens
- If the lens is subjected to direct sunlight, it could result in the
discoloration and deterioration of the image sensor.
- Take care not to get fingerprints or foreign substances on the
surface of the lens.
If the digital camera is not used for a long period, an electric
discharge can occur. It is a good idea to remove the battery and
the memory card if you do not intend to use the camera for an
extended period of time.
If the camera is exposed to electronic interference, it will turn itself
off to protect the memory card.
Camera Maintenance
- Use a soft brush (available from photo stores) to gently clean the
lens and LCD assemblies. If this does not work, lens-cleaning
paper with lens cleaning fluid can be used.
Clean the camera body with a soft cloth. Do not allow this
camera to come into contact with solvent materials such as
benzol, insecticide, thinners etc. This may damage the body
shell of the camera and also affect its performance. Rough
handling can damage the LCD screen. Take care to avoid
damage and keep the camera in its protective carry case at all
times when not in use.
Do not attempt to disassemble or modify the camera.
Under certain conditions, static electricity can cause the flash unit
to fire. This is not harmful to the camera and is not a malfunction.
When images are uploaded or downloaded, the data transfer may
be affected by static electricity. In this case, disconnect and reconnect the USB cable before trying the transfer again.
Before an important event or going on a trip, you should check
the camera condition.
- Take a picture to test the camera’s condition and prepare an extra battery.
- Samsung cannot be held responsible for camera malfunctions.
If the digital camera is not used for a long period, the date and time
may return to the default settings because the battery has
discharged. In this case, reset the date and time before the
recording.
