Lanyard Mount Playback Movie Up Left / Macro Down / Display Func / Set Right / Flash Mobile device connection Menu Installation and Use Opening the Housing 1. Depress both latch buttons at the same time and rotate the latch away from the housing. Latch button Latch The included lanyard is a break-away safety lanyard which is designed to break if stress is placed on it. This is important so that the user can break free if the equipment is caught on something underwater. The lanyard is not designed to support the weight of the housing and should not be used as a carrying strap. Carrying the housing by the lanyard may result in damage to the lanyard and/or housing. A different lanyard with a thin cord may be attached to the housing using the lanyard mount on the corner of the housing. 2. The back of the housing will be compressed by pressure underwater or after air travel. Rotate the latch fully to break the seal of the housing. Do not use metal objects or tools to pry the back open. 3. Lift the latch up and away from the housing. 4. Carefully open the housing back. Maintenance and Storage Installing the Camera 1. Check and lubricate the main housing o-ring. 1. Remove any lanyard, neck strap, or accessory attached to the camera. 2. Remove the protective backing from the anti-reflection ring and adhere it to the front of the camera centered around the lens. This will reduce reflections in sunny and flash lit conditions. 3. Place the camera into the front of the housing with the lens centered in the lens port. 4. Make sure the camera is sitting flat in the housing and flush to the front support ribs. Support rib 2. Submerge the closed housing in lukewarm fresh water. While submerged, rotate each control and depress each button to flush out any salt or debris. 3. Remove the housing from water and rinse with running water. 4. Do not rinse the inside of the housing or submerge the open housing in water. If the inside of the housing needs to be cleaned, wipe with a clean, slightly damp cloth. 5. Dry the housing with a clean, lint-free cloth. 6. Store in a cool, dry place. 7.

Closing the Housing 1. Apply a very thin, even layer of lubricant to the exposed portion of the o-ring and housing sealing surface. Avoid dry spots or uneven build-up of lubricant. 2. Close and latch the housing back. Press the latch towards the housing until the lock buttons click into place. 3. Check the latch. The buttons will not be depressed when the latch is properly locked. Pulling on the latch without pressing the buttons should not allow the latch to open. Using the Flash Diffuser Install the semi-transparent diffuser when using the camera’s built- in flash. A portion of the camera’s built-in flash may be blocked by the housing’s lens port. The diffuser spreads the light of the flash to reduce any effects on the image. It may be necessary to zoom in when shooting close-up photos to completely eliminate any darkened areas. Using the Flash Deflector Install the opaque white flash deflector when using external strobes. The flash deflector improves transmission of light to the fiber optic ports and reduces unwanted backscatter (the illumination of particles in the water).
