when using or storing the device.
Do Not Drop
The product may malfunction if subjected
to strong shock or vibration.
Handle the Lens and All Moving
Parts with Care
Do not apply force to the lens, lens cover,
monitor, memory card slot, or battery
chamber. These parts are easily damaged.
Applying force to the lens cover could

condensation to form inside the device. To
prevent condensation, place the device in
a carrying case or a plastic bag before
exposing it to sudden changes in
Keep Away from Strong Magnetic
Do not use or store this device in the
vicinity of equipment that generates
strong electromagnetic radiation or
magnetic fields. Strong static charge or the

such as radio transmitters could interfere
with the monitor, damage data saved on
the memory card, or affect the product’s
internal circuitry.
Do Not Point the Lens at Strong
Light Sources for Extended
Avoid pointing the lens at the sun or other
strong light sources for extended periods
when using or storing the camera. Intense
light may cause deterioration of the image
sensor, producing a white blur effect in
Turn the Product Off Before
Removing or Disconnecting the

internal circuitry.
Notes About the Monitor
• Monitors and electronic viewfinders are
constructed with extremely high
precision; at least 99.99% of pixels are
effective, with no more than 0.01%
being missing or defective. Hence while
these displays may contain pixels that
are always lit (white, red, blue, or green)
or always off (black), this is not a
malfunction and has no effect on
images recorded with the device.
• Images in the monitor may be difficult
to see under bright lighting.
• The monitor is lit by an LED backlight.
Should the monitor begin to dim or
flicker, contact your Nikon-authorized
service representative.

Before Taking Important
Before taking images on important
occasions (such as at weddings or before
taking the camera on a trip), take a test shot
to ensure that the camera is functioning
normally. Nikon will not be held liable for
damages or lost profits that may result
from product malfunction.
Disposing of Data Storage
Please note that deleting images or
formatting data storage devices such as
memory cards or built-in camera memory
does not completely erase the original
image data. Deleted files can sometimes
be recovered from discarded storage
devices using commercially available
software, potentially resulting in the
malicious use of personal image data.
Ensuring the privacy of such data is the
user’s responsibility.
Before discarding a data storage device or
transferring ownership to another person,
erase all data using commercial deletion
software, or format the device and then
completely refill it with images containing
no private information (for example,
images of empty sky). Be sure to also
replace any images selected for the Select
an image option in the Welcome screen
setting. Care should be taken to avoid
injury or damage to property when
physically destroying data storage devices.

Federal Communications Commission
(FCC) and Industry of Canada (IC)

Rules and Industry Canada licence-exempt
RSS standard(s). Operation is subject to the

FCC/IC RF Exposure Statement
This transmitter must not be co-located or
operated in conjunction with any other
antenna or transmitter.
The available scientific evidence does not
show that any health problems are
associated with using low power wireless
devices. There is no proof, however, that
these low power wireless devices are
absolutely safe. Low power wireless
devices emit low levels of radio frequency
energy (RF) in the microwave range while
being used. Whereas high levels of RF can
produce health effects (by heating tissue),
exposure of low-level RF that does not
produce heating effects causes no known
adverse health effects. Many studies of lowlevel RF exposures have not found any
biological effects. Some studies have
suggested that some biological effects
might occur, but such findings have not
been confirmed by additional research.
COOLPIX S6800, which is equipped with a
ID:4634A-2150EC) Wireless LAN Module,
has been tested and found to comply with
FCC/IC radiation exposure limits set forth
for an uncontrolled environment and
meets the FCC radio frequency (RF)
Exposure Guidelines in Supplement C to
OET65 and RSS-102 of the IC radio
frequency (RF) Exposure rules. Please refer
to the SAR test report that was uploaded to
FCC website.
