BAdditional Information
Precautions
Storing the Memory Stick Camera Module
• When you are not using the Memory Stick Camera Module, remove it
from the CLIÉ handheld, and store it in the supplied hard case.
• Carrying your CLIÉ handheld with the Memory Stick Camera Module
inserted may damage both the camera and the Memory Stick slot of the
CLIÉ handheld.
Places to avoid with the Memory Stick Camera
Module
Avoid the following situations both when using or storing the Memory
Stick Camera Module:
• Extremely hot places
Car interiors, for example, may become extremely hot in direct sunlight.
If the Memory Stick Camera Module is left inside, it may be damaged.
• Direct sunlight or heat-generating equipment
• Sandy places.
Do not expose the Memory Stick Camera Module to sand or dust. Such
conditions may damage the Memory Stick Camera Module beyond
possibility of repair.
• Facing the sun
Allowing the lens to face the sun for extended periods can damage the
Memory Stick Camera Module. Avoid this when leaving the Memory
Stick Camera Module outside or near a window.
On operation
• Do not lay any objects on top of the Memory Stick Camera Module.
• Avoid forcing the Memory Stick Camera Module to change temperature
rapidly. Extreme temperature changes can cause moisture to condense
inside the camera, and using the camera with condensed moisture inside
can damage it. When you must take the camera between temperature
extremes, such as taking it from a cold outdoor setting into a heating
building, do not turn the camera on immediately. Give the moisture time
to evaporate.
20

the disc, and do not scratch its surface.
Additional Information

the unlabeled side (playback side).
• Do not store the disc in dusty places, in direct sunlight, near heatgenerating equipment, or in a humid area.
• Store the disc inside its case.

which can damage the camera's finish.
Cleaning the lens
To clean the lens of the Memory Stick Camera Module, use a blower brush
or a soft brush.
