This product is controlled by the United States Export Administration Regulations
(EAR). The permission of the United States government is not required for export to
countries other than the following, which as of this writing are subject to embargo or
special controls: Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria (list subject to change).
Notice for Customers in the U.S.A. and Canada
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Innovation, Science and
Economic Development Canada (ISED)
Declaration of Conformity
This device complies with part 15 of FCC Rules and Innovation, Science and Economic
Development Canada’s licence-exempt RSSs. Operation is subject to the following
two conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device
must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause
undesired operation.
FCC/ISED 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 low-level 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.
This product has been tested and found to comply with FCC/ISED radiation exposure
limits set forth for an uncontrolled environment and meets the FCC radio frequency
(RF) Exposure Guidelines and RSS-102 of the ISED radio frequency (RF) Exposure rules.
Please refer to the SAR test report that was uploaded to FCC website.

Technical Notes
Notes About the Monitor
• Monitors (including 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.
• Do not apply pressure to the monitor, as this could cause damage or malfunction. Should
the monitor break, care should be taken to avoid injury caused by broken glass and to
prevent the liquid crystal from the display touching the skin or entering the eyes or
mouth.
The Battery
Precautions for Use
• Note that the battery may become hot after use.
• Do not use the battery at ambient temperatures below 0°C (32°F) or above 40°C (104°F) as
this could cause damage or malfunction.
• If you notice any abnormalities such as excessive heat, smoke, or an unusual smell coming
from the battery, immediately discontinue use and consult your retailer or Nikonauthorized service representative.
• After removing the battery from the camera or optional battery charger, put the battery in
a plastic bag, etc. in order to insulate it.
Charging the Battery
Check the battery level before using the camera and replace or charge the battery if
necessary.
• Charge the battery indoors with an ambient temperature of 5°C to 35°C (41°F to 95°F)
before use.
• A high battery temperature may prevent the battery from charging properly or
completely, and may reduce battery performance. Note that the battery may become hot
after use; wait for the battery to cool before charging.
When charging the battery inserted into this camera using the Charging AC Adapter or a
computer, the battery is not charged at battery temperatures below 0°C (32°F) or above
50°C (122°F).
• Do not continue charging once the battery is fully charged as this will result in reduced
battery performance.
• The battery temperature may increase during charging. However, this is not a
malfunction.
Carrying Spare Batteries
Whenever possible, carry fully charged spare batteries when taking pictures on important
occasions.
Using the Battery When Cold
On cold days, the capacity of batteries tends to decrease. If an exhausted battery is used at a low
temperature, the camera may not turn on. Keep spare batteries in a warm place and exchange as
necessary. Once warmed, a cold battery may recover some of its charge.
Technical Notes
25
Battery Terminals
Dirt on the battery terminals may prevent the camera from functioning. Should the battery
terminals become dirty, wipe them off with a clean, dry cloth before use.
Charging an Exhausted Battery
Turning the camera on or off while an exhausted battery is inserted in the camera may result
in reduced battery life. Charge the exhausted battery before use.
Storing the Battery
• Always remove the battery from the camera or optional battery charger when it is not
being used. Minute amounts of current are drawn from the battery while it is in the
camera, even when not in use. This may result in excessive battery drain and complete
loss of function.
• Charging a used battery within six months is recommended. When storing the battery for
long periods, recharge it at least once every six months and use the camera until the
battery level indicator is B before returning it to storage.
• Put the battery in a plastic bag, etc. in order to insulate it and store it in a cool place. The
battery should be stored in a dry location with an ambient temperature of 15°C to 25°C (59°F
to 77°F). Do not store the battery in hot or extremely cold locations.
Battery Life
A marked drop in the time a fully charged battery retains its charge, when used at room
temperature, indicates that the battery needs to be replaced. Purchase a new battery.
Recycling Used Batteries
Recycle rechargeable batteries in accord with local regulations, being sure to first insulate
the terminals with tape.
The Charging AC Adapter
• The EH-73P/EH-73PCH Charging AC Adapter is for use only with compatible devices. Do
not use with another make or model of device.
• Do not use any USB cable other than the UC-E21. Using a USB cable other than the UC-E21
could result in overheating, fire or electric shock.
• Do not, under any circumstances, use another make or model of AC adapter other than
the EH-73P/EH-73PCH Charging AC Adapter, and do not use a commercially available
USB-AC adapter or a battery charger for a mobile phone. Failure to observe this precaution
could result in overheating or in damage to the camera.
• The EH-73P/EH-73PCH is compatible with AC 100–240 V, 50/60 Hz electrical outlets. When
using in other countries, use a plug adapter (commercially available) as necessary. For
