protect the camera when carrying it in a motor-
cycle, car, boat, etc.
« Condensation on the interior or the exterior of
the camera may be extremely harmful to the
camera mechanism as it may cause rust and for
corrosion. Furthermore, if the camera is taken
from warm temperature to a subfreezing one or
vice versa, the formation of icelets may cause
damage. In such a case, put the camera into a
case or plastic bag so that any changes in tem-
perature difference are minimized. Do not
remove it from the bag until temperature has sta-
Precautions for storage
+ Avoid leaving the camera for extended periods in
places where temperature and humidity are high
such as in a car.
e Do not store the camera in a closet with moth-
balls or in a case where chemicals are handled.

vent fungus growth.
Precautions for proper care
e Use a blower and lens brush to remove dust
accumulated on the lens or the viewfinder win-
* Never use solvents such as paint thinner, alco-
hol or benzene to clean the camera. To clean the
external camera surfaces, - but not glass sur-
faces; using a dry or silicone-treated cloth is rec-
ommended. |

guaranteed agaisnt defects of material or work-
manship for a period of twelve months from date

tive parts will be replaced without cost to you with-
in that period, provided the equipment does not
show evidence of impact, sand or liquid damage,
mishandling, tampering, battery or chemical cor-
rosion, operation contrary to operating instruc-
tions, or modification by an unauthorized repair
shop. The manufacturer or its authorized repre-
sentatives shall not be liable for any repair or alter-
ations except those made with its written consent
and shall not be liable for damages from delay or
loss of use or from other indirect or consequential
damages of any kind, whether caused by defec-
tive material or workmanship or otherwise; and it

Procedure During 12-month Warranty Period
Any Pentax which proves defective during the 12
month warranty period should be returned to the
dealer from whom you purchased the equipment
or to the manufacturer. If there is no representa-
tive of the manufacturer in your coutry, send the
equipment to the manufacturer, with postage pre-
paid. In this case, it will take a considerable length
of time before the equipment can be returned to
you owing to the complicated customs procedures
required. If the equipment is covered by warranty,
repairs will be made and parts replaced free of
charge, and the equipment will be returned to you
upon completion of servicing. If the equipment is
not covered by warranty, regular charges of the
manufacturer or of its representatives will apply.
Shipping charges are to be borne by the owner. If
your Pentax was purchased outside of the country
where you wish to have it serviced during the war-
ranty period, regular handling and servicing fees
maybe charged by the manufacturer's representa-
tives in that country. Not with standing this, your
Pentax returned to the manufacturer will be ser-
viced free of charge according to this procedure
and warranty policy.
In any case, however, shipping charges and cus-
toms clearance fees are to be borne by the
sender. To prove the date of your purchase when
required, please keep the receipts or bills covering
the purchase of your equipment for at least a year.
Before sending your equipment for servicing,
please make sure that you are sending it to the
manufacture's authorized representatives or their
approved repair shops, unless you are sending it
directly to the manufacturer. Always obtain a quo-
tation for the service charge, and only after you
accept the quoted service charge, instruct the ser-
vice station to proceed with the servicing.
This warranty does not apply to Pentax prod-
ucts purchased in the United States.
Therefore, for warranty information regarding
Pentax products purchased in the United
States, please read the warranty card supplied
with your product.
