SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Handling the Camera
WARNING
( Do not use the camera near flammable or explosive gases.
( Do not use the flash on people (infants, small children, etc.) at
close range.
• You must be at least 1 m (3 ft.) away from the faces of your subjects. Firing the
flash too close to the subject’s eyes could cause a momentary loss of vision.
( Keep young children and infants away from the camera.
• Always use and store the camera out of the reach of young children and
infants to prevent the following dangerous situations which could cause
serious injury:
• Becoming entangled in the camera strap, causing strangulation.
• Accidentally swallowing the battery, cards or other small parts.
• Accidentally firing the flash into their own eyes or those of another child.
• Accidentally being injured by the moving parts of the camera.
En
( Do not look at the sun or strong lights with the camera.
( Do not use or store the camera in dusty or humid places.
( Do not cover the flash with a hand while firing.
CAUTION
( Stop using the camera immediately if you notice any unusual
odors, noise, or smoke around it.
• Never remove the batteries with bare hands, which may cause a fire or burn
your hands.
( Never hold or operate the camera with wet hands.
( Do not leave the camera in places where it may be subject to
extremely high temperatures.
• Doing so may cause parts to deteriorate and, in some circumstances, cause the
camera to catch fire. Do not use the charger or AC adapter if it is covered (such
as a blanket). This could cause overheating, resulting in fire.
( Handle the camera with care to avoid getting a low-temperature
burn.
• When the camera contains metal parts, overheating can result in a lowtemperature burn. Pay attention to the following:
• When used for a long period, the camera will get hot. If you hold on to the
camera in this state, a low-temperature burn may be caused.
• In places subject to extremely cold temperatures, the temperature of the
camera’s body may be lower than the environmental temperature. If
possible, wear gloves when handling the camera in cold temperatures.
( Be careful with the strap.
• Be careful with the strap when you carry the camera. It could easily catch on
stray objects - and cause serious damage.
