ƈ This unit contains precision electronic components. Do not use or store this unit in
the following locations.
- Areas exposed to severe changes in temperature and humidity.
- Areas exposed to dust and dirt.
- Areas exposed to direct sunlight or the inside of a vehicle in hot weather.
- Environments where there is high magnetism or excessive vibration.
- Areas with high explosives or highly flammable materials.
ƈ Do not leave this camera in places subject to dust, chemicals (like naphthalene
and mothball), high temperature and high humidity. Keep this camera in a
hermetically sealed box with silica gel when not planning to use it for a long
period.
ƈSand can be particularly troublesome to cameras.
- Do not let sand get inside the unit when using it on beaches, coastal dunes, or
other areas where there is lots of sand.
- Doing so may result in failure or may permanently render the unit unusable.
ƈ Handling the camera
- Never drop the camera or subject it to severe shocks or vibrations.
- Protect the large size LCD monitor from impact. When this camera is not used,
keep this camera in the camera case.
- Avoid obstructing the lens or the flash when you capture an image.
- This camera is not waterproof. To avoid dangerous electrical shocks, never hold
or operate the camera with wet hands.
- If you use this camera in wet places, such as beach or pool, do not let water or
sand get inside the camera. Doing so may result in failure or may permanently
damage the unit.
ŝ67Ş
Important notes
ƈ Extremes in temperature may cause problems.
- If the camera is transferred from a cold to a warm and humid environment,
condensation can form on the delicate electronic circuitry. If this occurs, turn the
camera off and wait for at least 1 hour until all moisture is dispersed. Moisture
build up can also occur in the memory card. If this happens, turn off the camera
and remove the memory card. Wait until the moisture has dispersed.
ƈ Caution on Using the Lens
- If the lens is subjected to direct sunlight, it could result in discoloration and
deterioration of the image sensor.
- Don't get fingerprints or foreign substances on the surface of the lens.
ƈ If the digital camera is not used for a long period, an electric discharge can occur.
It is a good idea to remove the batteries and the memory card if you do not intend
using the camera for an extended period of time.
ƈ If the camera is exposed to an electronic interference, it will turn itself off to protect
the memory card.
ƈ Camera Maintenance
- Use a soft brush (available from photo stores) to gently clean the lens and LCD
assemblies. If this does not work, lens-cleaning paper with lens cleaning fluid can
be used. Clean the camera body with a soft cloth. Do not allow this camera to
come into contact with solvent materials such as benzol, insecticide, thinners etc.
This may damage the body shell of the camera and also affect its performance.
Rough handling can damage the LCD monitor. Take care to avoid damage and
keep the camera in its protective carry case at all times when not in use.
ŝ68Ş
ƈ Do not attempt to disassemble or modify the camera.
ƈ Under certain conditions, static electricity can cause the flash unit to fire.
This is not harmful to the camera and is not a malfunction.
ƈ When images are uploaded or downloaded (when the charger and USB cable
are inserted into the cradle at the same time), the data transfer may be affected
by static electricity. In this case, disconnect and re-connect the USB cable before
trying the transfer again.
ƈ Before an important event or going on a trip, you should check the camera
condition.
- Take a picture to test the camera and always carry a spare fully charged battery.
- Samsung cannot be held responsible for camera malfunctions.
ƈ Do not use headphones/earphones while driving, cycling, or operating any
motorized vehicle. It may create a traffic hazard and can be illegal in some areas.
ƈ Avoid using headphones/earphones at high volume. Hearing experts advise
against continuously loud and extended play. If you experience a ringing in your
ears, reduce volume or discontinue use.
