Cleaning

Before cleaning, detach the battery or pull the

AC adaptor from the AC outlet, and then wipe the unit with a soft, dry cloth.

≥ If the unit is very dirty, dip a cloth in water and squeeze firmly, and then wipe the unit with the damp cloth. Next, dry the unit with a dry cloth.

When you are not going to use the unit for an extended time

When storing the unit in a cupboard or cabinet, it is recommended that you place a desiccant (silica gel) in with it.

Be sure to detach the battery after use.

≥ If the battery is left attached, a minute amount of current continues to flow even if the unit is off. Keeping the unit in this state may result in over discharge of the battery. This may result in you not being able to use the battery even after it is charged.

Likewise, the above also applies in a case where any type of repair is made to the unit.

About Condensation (When the lens or the LCD monitor is fogged up)

Condensation occurs when there is a change in temperature or humidity, such as when the unit is taken from outside or a cold room to a warm room. Please be careful, as it may cause the lens or LCD monitor to become soiled, moldy, or damaged.

When taking the unit to a place which has a different temperature, if the unit is accustomed to the room temperature of the destination for about one hour, condensation can be prevented. (When the difference in temperature is severe, place the unit in a plastic bag or the like, remove air from the bag, and seal the bag.)

When condensation has occurred, remove the battery and/or the AC adapter and leave the unit like that for about one hour. When the unit becomes accustomed to the surrounding temperature, fogginess will disappear naturally.
