About water-proof, dust-proof, and shock-proof performance of the camera
This camera is equipped to be water-proof, dust-proof and shock-proof.
Damage caused from misuse, abuse or failure to properly maintain the camera is not covered by the limited warranty.
• This camera is water-proof/dust-proof equivalent to IEC60529 IP58. The camera is operable up to a water depth of 3 m for 60 minutes.
• Do not directly subject the camera to flowing water such as tap water.
• Do not use in hot springs.
• Use the camera in the recommended operating water temperature range of
–10°C to +40°C (14°F to 104°F).
• Conforming to MIL-STD 810F Method 516.5-Shock standards, this product has passed testing when dropped from a height of 1.5 m above a 5-cm thick plywood board
* Depending on use conditions and circumstances, no guarantee is made regarding damage to, malfunction of, or the water-proof performance of this camera.
• As for dust-proof/shock-proof performance, there is no guarantee that the camera will not become scratched or dented.
• Sometimes water-proof performance is lost if the camera is subjected to a strong shock such as from being dropped. We recommend the camera be inspected at an authorized repair shop for a fee.
• Accessories supplied do not meet water-proof, dust-proof, and shock-proof specifications.
Notes before using the camera under/near water
• Make sure that no foreign matter such as sand, hair, or dirt gets inside the battery/memory card cover or multi-connector cover. Even a small amount of foreign matter may lead to water entering the camera.
• Confirm that the sealing gasket and its mating surfaces have not become scratched.
Even a small scratch may lead to water entering the camera. If the sealing gasket or its mating surfaces become scratched, take the camera to an authorized repair shop to have the sealing gasket replaced for a fee.
• If dirt or sand gets on the sealing gasket or its mating surfaces, wipe the area clean with a soft cloth that will not leave behind any fibers. Do not use a sharp-pointed implement to prevent the sealing gasket and its mating surfaces from becoming scratched.
Surface contacting the sealing gasket
• Do not open/close the battery/memory card cover or multi-connector cover with wet or sandy hands or near water. There is a risk this will lead to sand or water getting inside. Before opening the cover, perform the procedure
• Open the cover with the camera completely dry.
• Always confirm that the battery/memory card cover and multi-connector cover have been securely locked.
Notes on using the camera under/near water
• Do not subject the camera to shock such as from jumping into water.
• Do not open and close the battery/memory card cover or multi-connector cover while under/near water.
• Use a separately available housing (Marine Pack) if going more than
3 meters under water.
• This camera sinks in water. Place your hand through the wrist strap to prevent the camera from sinking.
• Faint, white, circular spots may appear in under-water flash photos due to reflections off of floating objects. This is not a malfunction.
• Select (Underwater) in Scene Selection to shoot underwater with less distortion.
• If water drops or other foreign matter is present on the lens, you will be unable to record clear images.
Cleaning after using the camera under/near water
• Always clean the camera with water after use within 60 minutes, and do not open the battery/ memory card cover before cleaning is finished.
Sand or water may get inside places where it cannot be seen. If not rinsed, water-proof performance will be degraded.
• Allow the camera to sit in pure water poured into a cleaning bowl for more than 5 minutes. Then, gently shake the camera, press each button, slide the zoom (W/T) lever or the lens cover inside the water, to clean away any salt, sand or other matter lodged around the buttons or the lens cover.
• After rinsing, wipe away water drops with a soft cloth. Allow the camera to dry completely in a shady location with good ventilation. Do not blow dry with a hair dryer as there is a risk of deformation and/or degraded waterproof performance.
• This camera is constructed to drain water. Water will drain from openings around the ON/OFF (Power) button, zoom (W/T) lever, and other controls.
After removing from water, place the camera on a dry cloth for a while to allow water to drain.
• Bubbles may appear when the camera is placed under water. This is not a malfunction.
• The camera body may become discolored if it comes in contact with sunscreen or suntan oil. If the camera does come in contact with sunscreen or suntan oil, quickly wipe it clean.
• Do not allow the camera to sit with salt water inside or on the surface. This may lead to corrosion or discoloration, and degradation of water-proof performance.
• Opening/closing the battery/memory card cover or multi-connector cover may lead to degradation of the sealing gasket. We recommend that once a year you take the camera to your dealer, or to an authorized repair shop, to have the sealing gasket replaced for a fee.

Internal memory and memory card back up
Do not turn off the camera, remove the battery pack, or remove the memory card while the access lamp is lit. Otherwise, the internal memory data or the memory card may be damaged. Be sure to make a backup copy to protect your data.
On database files
When you insert a memory card without a database file into the camera and turn on the power, part of the memory card capacity is used to automatically create a database file. It may take some time until you can perform the next operation.
Notes on recording/playback
• To ensure stable operations of the memory card, we recommend that you use this camera to format any memory card being used with this camera for the first time. Note that formatting will erase all data recorded on the memory card. This data cannot be restored. Be sure to back-up any important data to a
PC or other storage location.
• Before you start recording, make a trial recording to make sure that the camera is working correctly.
• Do not aim the camera at the sun or other bright light. It may cause the malfunction of the camera.
• Do not use the camera near a location that generates strong radio waves or emits radiation. Otherwise, the camera may not properly record or play back images.
• If moisture condensation occurs, remove it before using the camera.
• Do not shake or strike the camera. It may cause a malfunction and you may not be able to record images. Furthermore, the recording media may become unusable or image data may be damaged.
• Clean the flash surface before use. The heat of flash emission may cause dirt on the flash surface to become discolored or to stick to the flash surface, resulting in insufficient light emission.
Notes on the LCD screen
• The LCD screen is manufactured using extremely high-precision technology so over 99.99% of the pixels are operational for effective use. However, some tiny black and/or bright dots (white, red, blue or green) may appear on the LCD screen. These dots are a normal result of the manufacturing process, and do not affect the recording.
