Cautions
To ensure continued enjoyment of your Nikon product, observe the following
precautions when storing or using the device.
Preventing Leakage
WATER INSIDE THE CASE COULD NOT ONLY EXPOSE THE CAMERA TO IRREPARABLE DAMAGE BUT ALSO RESULT
IN FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK, OR EXPOSURE TO POISONOUS GASES. THE ENTRY OF WATER INTO THE CASE CAN BE
PREVENTED BY OBSERVING THE FOLLOWING PRECAUTIONS:
Before using the WP-CP2 in or near water, test for leaks as described on pages 6–7
and 12 of this manual.
• Before sealing the case, examine the O-ring, watertight channel, and any parts of
the case that are in contact with the O-ring carefully to ensure that they are free of
dirt, hair, lint, dust, sand, and other foreign objects. Make sure that the O-ring is not
twisted or out of position.
• The O-ring requires periodic replacement. Replace the O-ring immediately if it is damaged, cracked, warped, or has lost elasticity. O-rings should be replaced at least once
a year; do not use a worn O-ring or a type of O-ring or O-ring grease not designated
for use in this product. Do not use NIKONOS O-ring lubricant (grease).
• Be careful not to damage the O-ring when removing it from the case. Do not use
metal objects or objects with sharp points when removing the O-ring.
• Do not use force when removing or positioning the O-ring. Excessive force may permanently stretch the ring, causing the case to leak.
• To prevent wear, use only COOLPIX O-ring grease designated for use with this product. Do not use NIKONOS O-ring lubricant (grease) or other types of O-ring grease.
• Do not open the waterproof case in areas exposed to spray, high winds, dust, or
sand.
• Do not drop the case, place under heavy objects, or subject to excessive force. Failure
to observe this precaution could cause the case to warp, resulting in leakage.
• In the event of leakage, stop use immediately, dry the camera and the interior of the
case, and take the camera and case to a Nikon-authorized service representative.
Shock and Vibration
The waterproof case is not designed to protect the camera from blows or vibration. Do
not drop the case, strike it against hard objects, throw it into the water, jump into the
water holding the case, or leave the case in an area subject to extreme vibration. Failure
to observe these precautions could result in damage to the camera.
Maximum Depth
The WP-CP2 is waterproof to 40 m (130´). At greater depths, the case could leak,
break, or change shape, resulting in damage to the camera.
iii
Temperature
Do not leave the case in areas exposed to high temperatures, such as inside a car, near
a heater, on a beach, or in direct sunlight. Failure to observe this precaution could
weaken or warp the case, resulting in damage to the camera. Sudden changes in
temperature could result in condensation inside the case, which could also damage the
camera. To prevent condensation:
• Before exposing the case to sudden changes in temperature, place it in a sealed plastic
bag. Do not open the bag until the case has reached the same temperature as its
surroundings.
• Place the supplied desiccant (silica gel) in the case with the camera as directed on
page 10 of this manual.
• Do not expose the case to high temperatures by leaving it on the beach or in direct
sunlight before entering the water.
Chemicals
• Do not expose the case to volatile chemicals or their vapors. Failure to observe this
precaution could result in damage to the case.
• Do not use chemical detergents, rust inhibitors, thinner, alcohol, or other volatile
chemicals when cleaning the case. Wash in fresh water only.
• Use only desiccants designated for use with this product (see page 19).
• Use only COOLPIX O-ring grease designated for use with this product (see page 19).
Do not use NIKONOS O-ring lubricant (grease).
• Do not use sealants or anti-fog chemicals.
• Do not handle the case after applying sunscreen. Sunscreen can damage the clear
plastic parts of the case.
• Do not apply stickers to the case, as the adhesive could cause the case to deteriorate.
Travelling by Air
If possible, include the case in your carry-on baggage when travelling by air. When
packing the case with checked luggage, leave the case open or remove the O-ring. If
the case is sealed, changes in air pressure may damage the case or prevent the case
from opening.
High Altitudes
When travelling from high to low altitudes, open the case periodically to equalize the
pressure. If the case is kept sealed, changes in air pressure may damage the case or
prevent the case from opening.

Insert the Camera
To prevent condensation from forming inside the
case, insert the silica gel desiccant between the
bottom of the camera and the case. Slide the
desiccant to the front of the case, where it will
not interfere with proper closing of the case. Improper placement could cause the case to leak.
Replacing the Desiccant
Used desiccant loses its ability to absorb moisture.
We recommend replacing the desiccant each time
the case is used ( 19).
4. Perform a Final Check
• Is the O-ring cracked or damaged?
• Is the O-ring twisted or out of position?
• Is the O-ring free of hair, dust, sand, and other
foreign objects?
Is the desiccant correctly placed?

that pictures taken underwater may have a blue cast). While shooting, avoid exhaling
bubbles into the frame.
Close-up shots can be taken at ranges of as little as 4 cm (1.6˝) when the camera is
zoomed out to where the icon in the monitor turns green. Note that the flash may
be unable to light the entire subject when the camera is zoomed out, and its range may
vary with depth and clarity. It may also reflect from suspended materials, producing
brights spots in the picture. Take a test shot and view the results in the monitor.
Reactivating the Monitor
If the monitor has turned off to save power, it can be reactivated by pressing the power
button or by pressing the shutter-release button halfway. By default, the monitor will

Clean the Case
Wipe dry
Dry the exterior of the case thoroughly with a
soft, dry cloth.
Drying the Case
Be careful to remove water that may have collected in the buckle, controls, or strap eyelet.
Remove the camera
Remove the camera and dry the inside of the case
with a soft, dry cloth.
Removing the Camera
Do not open the case in areas exposed to blown
sand or spray. When removing the camera, be
careful not to drop the device and make sure that
droplets from your hair, body, or other objects do
not fall into the case or onto the camera. If water
does fall on the camera, dry it off immediately.
Keep the case upright; do not place the open case
with the O-ring or O-ring seal face down.
Soak the case in fresh water
Reseal the case and leave it in a basin of fresh
water for two to three hours. Operate each of the
controls a few times to remove salt. If salt drys on
the controls, they may cease to function or their
metal parts may rust, causing leakage.
15
Clean the Case
Wash the case in fresh water
The case should be cleaned immediately after use.
Before opening the case and removing the camera, wash the case in a basin of fresh water.
Clean the Case
Wipe dry
Dry the case thoroughly with a soft, dry cloth. Do
not use a cloth to which salt has adhered.
Let the case dry in the shade
Leave the case out to dry in a shady, well-ventilated area.
Do Not Exposure to Sunlight or Heat
Do not use a hair dryer or other heat source or
place the case in direct sunlight. Heat could cause
the O-ring to deteriorate, resulting in leakage.
Cleaning the Interior of the Case
Use a blower or a soft, dry cloth to clean the interior of the case. Do not use water,
detergents, or chemical agents of any kind. Water can damage the coating on the
inside of the lens window.
16
Maintenance
Caring for the O-ring
The WP-CP2 uses an O-ring to form a watertight seal. Improper handling of
the O-ring can produce leaks. Check the condition of the O-ring as described
below before each use, and check for the presence of foreign matter on the
O-ring each time the case is opened, however briefly.
Remove the O-ring
Pinch the O-ring lightly between two fingers to
form a loop. Take hold of the loop and remove
the O-ring from the case.
Do Not Use Force or Sharp Objects
The case may leak if the O-ring is forcibly stretched
or damaged through the use of edged or pointed
objects, including fingernails and metal tools.
Cracking
Inspect the O-ring
Remove old O-ring grease and other foreign matter with tissue paper or a soft, dry cloth, taking
care not to leave tissue or threads on the O-ring.
Gently bend the O-ring to check for cracking or
other damage.
Inspect the O-ring guide
Use a blower or cotton swab to remove any foreign objects from the watertight channel and all
parts of the case that come into contact with the
O-ring. Be sure to remove any threads left behind
by the swab.
Replacing the O-ring
The O-ring requires periodic replacement. Replace the O-ring immediately if it is damaged, cracked, warped, or has lost its elasticity. O-rings should be replaced at least once
a year. Use only COOLPIX O-ring grease designated for use in this product; replacement
O-rings and O-ring grease can be purchased from a Nikon camera retailer or Nikon-authorized service agent. Do not use NIKONOS O-ring lubricant (grease).
17
Maintenance
Grease the O-ring
If the O-ring is not properly greased, it may crack
or peel, causing leaks. If the bottom of the O-ring
appears dry, place a drop of O-ring grease on your
index finger and spread grease on the O-ring by
sliding it between your thumb and index finger,
gently stretching the ring. Do not use cloth or
paper, as these may leave fibers on the O-ring.
Note that applying too much grease may cause
foreign matter to adhere more readily to the ring,
preventing the case from sealing properly.
Replace the O-ring
Making sure the O-ring and guide are free of
foreign objects, place the O-ring so that it runs
evenly at the same level all the way round the Oring guide, without undue stretching and without
protruding from the guide.
Check the seal
Close the case and check that the case is fully
sealed. If the O-ring does not form a perfect seal,
open the case and adjust the O-ring to prevent
leaks.
Cleaning
Do not use detergents or volatile chemicals such as alcohol or thinner when cleaning
the case. Failure to observe this precaution could result in damage to the case or Oring.

Maintenance/Technical Notes
Store the case in a cool, well-ventilated area, leaving the case open to prevent
the O-ring from deteriorating. When leaving the case unused for an extended
period, remove the O-ring, wipe off any O-ring grease, and place the O-ring
in a clean plastic bag to ensure that it maintains it elasticity. Do not store
the case in direct sunlight or where it will be exposed to sudden changes in
temperature or high levels of humidity. Do not store the case or O-ring under
other objects, close to open flames, in the vicinity of flammable items, or with
naptha or camphor moth balls.
