<Important> Notes about shockproof,
waterproof, and dustproof performance and
condensation
• The shockproof, waterproof, and dustproof performance described here do not
guarantee that the camera will remain completely waterproof or free from damage
and trouble under all conditions.
• Do not subject the camera to excessive shock, vibration or pressure by dropping it,
hitting it, or placing a heavy object on it. Failure to observe this precaution could
deform the camera, cause water to seep inside, or damage the airtight seals,
resulting in camera malfunction.
• Your Nikon warranty may not cover troubles caused by water seeping inside the
camera due to improper handling of the camera.
Notes about shockproof performance
This camera has passed Nikon’s in-house test (drop test from a height of 180 cm (5 ft
10 in.) on a 5 cm (2 in.) thick plywood panel) compliant with the MIL-STD-810G w/
Change 1 Method 516.7-Shock* standard.
Changes in appearance, such as paint peeling off and deformation of the camera, are
not measured in Nikon’s in-house test.
* U.S. Department of Defense test method standard. This test is defined by preparing
5 cameras and making sure that the test is passed within 5 cameras by dropping in
26 directions (8 corners, 12 edges, and 6 faces) from a height of 122 cm (4 ft).
Notes about waterproof and dustproof performance
The camera is rated equivalent to JIS/IEC waterproof class 8 (IPX8) and JIS/IEC
dustproof class 6 (IP6X) and can shoot images underwater at a depth of 10 m (33 ft)
for up to 60 minutes.*
* This rating indicates that the camera has been designed to withstand the specified water
pressure for the specified period of time when the camera is used according to the
methods defined by Nikon.
• The waterproof performance of this camera was tested in fresh water (swimming
pools, rivers, and lakes) and salt water only.
• The inner portion of this camera is not waterproof. Water seeping inside the camera
could cause the components to rust, resulting in high repair costs or irreparable
damage.
• Accessories are not waterproof.
B
Precautions when cleaning
• Do not puncture the microphone or speaker openings with a sharp implement. If the
inside of the camera is damaged, the waterproof performance will deteriorate.
• Do not use soap, neutral detergents, or chemicals such as benzene.
28
For your safety
Notes about shockproof, waterproof, and dustproof

Notes about operating temperature, humidity, and
condensation
The operation of this camera has been tested at temperatures from –10°C to +40°C
(14°F to 104°F).
When you use the camera in cold climate regions or at high altitudes, observe the
following precautions.
• Battery performance deteriorates temporarily when cold. Keep the camera and
batteries warm under your clothing before use.
• Camera performance may deteriorate temporarily if it is exposed to extreme cold
for an extended period. For example, the monitor may appear darker than normal
immediately after the camera is turned on, or residual images may be produced.
● Environmental conditions that are likely to cause condensation
Fogging (condensation) may occur on the inside of the monitor or lens when there
are sharp temperature changes or high humidity, such as in the environmental
conditions described below. This is not a camera malfunction or defect.
• The camera is suddenly immersed in cold water after being in a hot place on land.
• The camera is brought to a warm place such as inside a building after being in the
cold outdoors.
• The battery-chamber/memory card slot cover is opened or closed in a highhumidity environment.
● Reducing condensation
• Open the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover, put the camera and a
commercially-available desiccant in a container such as a plastic bag, and seal the
container.
Condensation is less likely to occur if the humidity inside the camera is reduced.
• Before using the camera underwater, avoid storing it in locations where the camera
may become hot (such as under direct sunlight).
If you submerge the camera underwater while it is hot, the sudden change in
temperature may cause condensation.
30
For your safety
● Clearing the fogging
• Turn off the camera and open the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover while
in a place where the ambient temperature is stable (avoid places with high
temperature, high humidity, sand, or dust).
To clear the fogging, remove the battery and memory card, and leave the batterychamber/memory card slot cover open to allow the camera to adjust to the
ambient temperature.
Inspection and repair
• If the camera is exposed to shock, it is recommended to consult your retailer or
Nikon-authorized service representative to confirm the waterproof performance
(charged service).
• If the waterproof packing begins to deteriorate, consult your retailer or Nikonauthorized service representative. The waterproof performance of the waterproof
packing may start to deteriorate after one year.
• If water seeps inside the camera, immediately stop using it and take it to your
Nikon-authorized service representative.

Caring for the product
Observe the precautions described below in addition to the warnings in “For your safety”
(pages 23-26) and “<Important> Notes about shockproof, waterproof, and dustproof
performance and condensation” (pages 28-31) when using or storing the device.
The camera
Do not apply strong impact to the camera
The product may malfunction if subjected to strong shock or vibration. In addition, do
not touch or apply force to the lens.
Avoid sudden changes in temperature
Sudden changes in temperature, such as when entering or leaving a heated building
on a cold day, can cause 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 temperature.
Keep away from strong magnetic fields
Do not use or store this device in the vicinity of equipment that generates strong
electromagnetic radiation or magnetic fields. Doing so could result in loss of data or
camera malfunction.
Do not point the lens at strong light sources for extended periods
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 the image sensor to
deteriorate or produce a white blur effect in photographs.
Turn the product off before removing or disconnecting the power source or
memory card
Do not remove the battery while the product is on, or while images are being saved or
deleted. Forcibly cutting power in these circumstances could result in loss of data or
in damage to the memory card or internal circuitry.
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.
34
For your safety
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
Nikon-authorized 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
5°C (41°F) or above 55°C (131°F).
• When the battery temperature is between 45°C–55°C (113°F–131°F), the
chargeable capacity may decrease.
• 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.
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.
For your safety
35
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 U 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 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 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 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 more information about plug adapters, consult your travel agency.
• The symbols on this product represent the following:
D AC, E DC, F Class II equipment (The construction of the product is doubleinsulated.)
