This restriction applies to wireless operation only and not to any other use of the product.

Notice for Customers in the U.S.A. and Canada

Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Industry of Canada (IC)

Declaration of Conformity

This device complies with Part 15 of FCC Rules and Industry Canada licenceexempt RSS standard(s). Operation is subject to the following two conditions:

(1) this device may not cause interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference, including interference that may cause undesired operation of this device.

FCC/IC 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.

COOLPIX P610, which is equipped with a DW092 (FCC ID:EW4DW092/IC

ID:4634A-3149EC) Wireless LAN Module, has been tested and found to comply with FCC/IC radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled environment and meets the FCC radio frequency (RF) Exposure Guidelines in Supplement C to OET65 and RSS-102 of the IC radio frequency (RF) Exposure rules. Please refer to the SAR test report that was uploaded to FCC website.

Declaration of Conformity (Europe)

Hereby, Nikon Corporation, declares that COOLPIX P610 is in compliance with the essential requirements and other relevant provisions of Directive 1999/5/

EC. The declaration of conformity may be consulted at http://imaging.nikon.com/support/pdf/DoC_P610.pdf.

With the battery’s positive and negative terminals oriented correctly, move

the orange battery latch (3), and fully insert the battery (4).

Slide the memory card in until it clicks into place (5).

Be careful not to insert the battery or memory card upside-down or

backward, as this could cause a malfunction.

B

Formatting a Memory Card

The first time you insert a memory card that has been used in another device into this camera, make sure to format it with this camera. Insert the memory card into the camera, press the d button, and select Format card in the setup menu (

A57).

Removing the Battery or Memory Card

Turn the camera off and make sure that the power-on lamp and monitor have turned off, and then open the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover.

Move the battery latch to eject the battery.

Gently push the memory card into the camera to partially eject the memory

card.

Be careful when handling the camera, battery, and memory card

immediately after using the camera, as they may become hot.

Charge the Battery

1

With the battery installed, connect the camera to an electrical outlet.

Charging

AC Adapter

Electrical outlet

Power-on lamp (charge lamp) USB cable (included)

If a plug adapter* is included with your camera, securely connect it to the

Charging AC Adapter. Once the two are connected, attempting to forcibly remove the plug adapter could damage the product.

* The shape of the plug adapter varies according to the country or region in which the camera was purchased.

This step can be omitted if the plug adapter comes permanently bonded to the charging AC adapter.

The power-on lamp (charge lamp) slowly flashes green to indicate that the battery is charging.

When charging is complete, the power-on lamp turns off. It takes about

3 hours to charge a fully exhausted battery.

The battery cannot be charged when the power-on lamp quickly flashes green, possibly due to one of the reasons described below.

- The ambient temperature is not suited to charging.

- The USB cable or Charging AC Adapter is not properly connected.

- The battery is damaged.

2

Disconnect the charging AC adapter from the electrical outlet and then disconnect the USB cable.

11

12

B

Notes About the USB Cable

Do not use a USB cable other than the UC-E21. Using a USB cable other than the

UC-E21 could result in overheating, fire or electric shock.

Make sure that the plugs are properly oriented. Do not insert or remove the plugs at an angle when connecting or disconnecting them.

B

Notes About Charging the Battery

Do not, under any circumstances, use another make or model of AC adapter other than Charging AC Adapter EH-71P/EH-71PCH, 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.

C

Charging Using a Computer or Battery Charger

You can also charge the battery by connecting the camera to a computer.

You can use the Battery Charger MH-67P (available separately) to charge the battery without using the camera.

Opening and Adjusting the Angle of the

Monitor

Changing the orientation of the monitor is useful when shooting with the camera in a high or a low position, or when taking selfies.

For normal shooting, fold the monitor against the camera body with the screen facing out (3).

When you are not using or carrying the camera, fold the monitor against the camera body with the screen facing inward to prevent scratches or contamination.

B

Notes About the Monitor

When moving the monitor, do not apply excessive force and turn slowly within the monitor’s adjustable range so that the connection will not be damaged.

The Clock Battery

The camera’s clock is powered by a built-in backup battery.

The backup battery charges when the main battery is inserted into the camera or when the camera is connected to an optional AC adapter, and it can run the clock for several days after about 10 hours of charging.

If the camera’s backup battery becomes exhausted, the date and time setting screen is displayed when the camera is turned on. Set the date and time again

Notes About Saving Images or Movies

The indicator showing the number of exposures remaining or the indicator showing the remaining recording time flashes while images or movies are being saved. Do

not open the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover or remove the battery or memory card

while an indicator is flashing. Doing this could result in loss of data, or in damage to the camera or the memory card.

C

The Auto Off Function

When no operations are performed for about one minute, the monitor turns off, the camera enters standby mode, and then the power-on lamp flashes. The camera turns off after remaining in standby mode for about three minutes.

To turn the monitor back on while the camera is in standby mode, perform an operation such as pressing the power switch or shutter-release button.

C

When Using a Tripod

We recommend using a tripod to stabilize the camera in the following situations:

- When shooting in dim lighting with the flash mode set to W (off)

- When the zoom is at a telephoto position

When using a tripod to stabilize the camera during shooting, set Vibration

reduction to Off in the setup menu (

A57) to prevent potential errors caused by

this function.

Using the Flash

In situations where a flash is needed, such as in dark locations or when the subject is backlit, press the m (flash pop-up) button to raise the flash.

When not using the flash, gently push to

lower the flash until it clicks shut.

Switching Between the Monitor and Viewfinder

You can use the viewfinder when bright light under the open sky makes it difficult to see the monitor.

When you bring your face close to the

viewfinder, the eye sensor responds to it and the viewfinder turns on while the monitor turns off (default setting).

You can also press the

x button to switch the display between the monitor and viewfinder.

Viewfinder x button

Diopter Adjustment of the Viewfinder

When the image in the viewfinder is difficult to see, adjust by rotating the diopter adjustment control while looking through the viewfinder.

Take care not to scratch your eye with

your fingertips or nails.

(

A57).

A zoom indicator is displayed on the shooting

screen when the zoom control is moved.

Digital zoom, which allows you to further magnify

the subject up to approximately 4× the maximum optical zoom ratio, can be activated by moving and holding the zoom control toward g when the camera is zoomed in to the maximum optical zoom position.

Dynamic Fine Zoom.

Zoom indicator is yellow: There may be cases in which image quality is noticeably reduced.

The indicator remains blue across a wider area when the image size is smaller.

The zoom indicator may not change to blue when using certain continuous shooting settings or other settings.

Using the Snap-back Zoom

When the subject is lost at the telephoto zoom position, press the p (snap-back zoom) button to temporarily widen the angle of view so that you can frame the subject more easily.

While pressing the

p button, frame the subject inside the framing border of the shooting screen. To widen the angle of view further, move the zoom control toward f while pressing the p button.

Release the

p button to return to the original zoom position.

Snap-back zoom is not available during

Exposure

The procedure for shooting images at the desired brightness (exposure) by adjusting the shutter speed or aperture value is called “determine exposure.”

The sense of dynamism and amount of background defocus in images to be shot vary depending on the combinations of shutter speed and aperture value even if the exposure is the same.

Adjusting the Shutter Speed

Faster 1/1000 s

Adjusting the Aperture Value

Slower 1/30 s

Larger aperture (Small f-number) f/3.3

C

The Control Range of the Shutter Speed

The control range of the shutter speed differs depending on the zoom position, aperture, or ISO sensitivity setting.

C

Aperture Value (F-number) and Zoom

Large apertures (expressed by small f­numbers) let more light into the camera, and small apertures (large f-numbers) let less light.

The aperture value of this camera also changes depending on the zoom position.

31

32

j (Programmed auto)

Use for automatic control of the exposure by the camera.

Different combinations of shutter speed and

aperture value can be selected without changing the exposure by rotating the command dial (“flexible program”). While

1/250 F5.6

flexible program is in effect, a flexible program mark (A) is displayed next to the mode indicator ( j) in the upper left of the monitor.

To cancel flexible program, rotate the command dial until the flexible

program mark (A) is no longer displayed. Changing the shooting mode, or turning off the camera, also cancels flexible program.

k (Shutter-priority auto)

Use to shoot fast-moving subjects at a fast shutter speed, or use to emphasize the movements of a moving subject at a slow shutter speed.

The shutter speed can be adjusted by rotating

the command dial.

1/250 F5.6

l (Aperture-priority auto)

Use to bring subjects including both the foreground and background into focus or blur the subject’s background intentionally.

The aperture value can be adjusted by rotating

the multi selector.

1/250 F5.6

m (Manual)

Use to control the exposure according to shooting requirements.

When adjusting the aperture value or shutter

speed, the degree of deviation from the exposure value measured by the camera is displayed in the exposure indicator of the monitor. The degree of deviation in the exposure indicator is displayed in EVs ( – 2 to +2

EV in increments of 1/3 EV).

Notes About Easy Panorama Shooting

The range of the image seen in the saved image is narrower than that seen in the monitor at the time of shooting.

If the camera is moved too quickly or shaken too much, or if the subject is too uniform (e.g. walls or darkness), an error may occur.

If shooting is stopped before the camera reaches the half-way point in the panorama range, a panorama image is not saved.

If more than half of the panorama range is captured but shooting ends before reaching the edge of the range, the range not captured is recorded and displayed in gray.

Focusing

The focus area varies depending on the shooting mode.

Using Target Finding AF

In A (auto) mode, or when AF area mode (

A52) in j, k, l, m or M mode

is set to Target finding AF, the camera focuses in the manner described below when you press the shutter-release button halfway.

The camera detects the main subject and

focuses on it. When the subject is in focus, the focus area is displayed in green. If a human face is detected, the camera automatically sets focus priority on it.

1/250 F5.6

Focus areas

If no main subject is detected, the camera

automatically selects one or more of the 9 focus areas containing the subject closest to the camera. When the subject is in focus, the focus areas that are in focus are displayed in green.

1/250 F5.6

Focus areas

B

Notes About Target Finding AF

Depending on shooting conditions, the subject that the camera determines to be the main subject may vary.

The main subject may not be detected when using certain White balance or

Picture Control settings.

The camera may not detect the main subject appropriately in the following situations:

- When the subject is very dark or bright

- When the main subject lacks clearly defined colors

- When the shot is framed so that the main subject is on the edge of the monitor

- When the main subject is composed of a repeating pattern

E

18

Using Face Detection

In the following settings, the camera uses face detection to automatically focus on human faces.

s (night portrait), Scene auto selector or

Portrait scene mode (

A27)

a (smile timer) (

A39)

When AF area mode (

A52) is set to Face

priority

1/250 F5.6

If the camera detects more than one face, a double border is displayed around the face that the camera focuses on, and single borders are displayed around the other faces.

If the shutter-release button is pressed halfway when no faces are detected:

When Scene auto selector is selected, the focus area changes depending

on the scene.

In

s (night portrait) and

Portrait , the camera focuses on the area in the center of the frame.

When a (smile timer) is selected, the camera focuses on the subject in the

center of the frame.

When AF area mode is set to Face priority, the camera selects the focus

area containing the subject closest to the camera.

B

Notes About Face Detection

The camera’s ability to detect faces depends on a variety of factors, including the direction in which the faces are looking.

The camera cannot detect faces in the following situations:

- When faces are partially hidden by sunglasses or otherwise obstructed

- When faces take up too much or too little of the frame

C

Viewing Images Captured Using Face Detection

During playback, the camera automatically rotates images according to the orientation of the faces that were detected at the time of shooting (except for images captured using Continuous (

A52) or Exposure bracketing (A52)).

E

19

Using Skin Softening

When the shutter is released while using one of the shooting modes listed below, the camera detects human faces and processes the image to soften facial skin tones (up to 3 faces).

s (night portrait), Scene auto selector or Portrait scene mode (A27)

Skin softening can also be applied to saved images (

A55).

B

Notes About Skin Softening

It may take more time than usual to save images after shooting.

Under some shooting conditions, the desired skin softening results may not be achieved, and skin softening may be applied to areas of the image where there are no faces.

Subjects Not Suitable for Autofocus

The camera may not focus as expected in the following situations. In rare cases, the subject may not be in focus despite the fact that the focus area or the focus indicator is displayed in green:

Subject is very dark

Objects of sharply differing brightness are included in the scene (e.g. the sun

behind the subject makes that subject appear very dark)

No contrast between the subject and surroundings (e.g. a portrait subject

wearing a white shirt is standing in front of a white wall)

Several objects are at different distances from the camera (e.g. the subject is

inside a cage)

Subjects with repeating patterns (window blinds, buildings with multiple

rows of similarly shaped windows, etc.)

Subject is moving rapidly

In the situations noted above, try pressing the shutter-release button halfway to refocus several times, or focus on another subject positioned at the same distance from the camera as the actual desired subject, and use focus lock

(

E21).

The camera can also focus using manual focus (

A41, 42).

E

20

Focus Lock

Use focus lock to capture creative compositions even when the focus area is set to the center of the frame.

1

Position the subject in the center of the frame and press the shutter-release button halfway.

The camera focuses on the subject and the focus area is displayed in green.

Exposure is also locked.

2

Without lifting your finger, recompose the picture.

Make sure to maintain the same distance between the camera and the subject.

Recording may end before either limit is reached if camera temperature becomes elevated.

The actual remaining recording time may vary depending on the movie content, subject movement, or type of memory card.

Memory cards with an SD Speed Class rating of 6 or faster are recommended when recording movies (

F20). Movie recording may stop unexpectedly when a memory

card with a lower Speed Class rating is used.

Notes About Camera Temperature

The camera may become hot when recording movies for an extended period of time or when the camera is used in a hot area.

If the inside of the camera becomes extremely hot when recording movies, the camera will automatically stop recording. The amount of time remaining until the camera stops recording (B10s) is displayed.

After the camera stops recording, it turns itself off.

Leave the camera off until the inside of the camera has cooled.

Notes About Saving Images or Movies

The indicator showing the number of exposures remaining or the indicator showing the remaining recording time flashes while images or movies are being saved. Do

not open the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover or remove the battery or memory card

while an indicator is flashing. Doing this could result in loss of data, or in damage to the camera or the memory card.

B

Notes About Recorded Movies

The zoom indicator is not displayed during movie recording.

There may be some degradation in image quality when digital zoom is used. If you zoom in on the subject while recording a movie, the zoom motion temporarily stops at the position where optical zoom is changed to digital zoom.

The sounds of zoom control operation, zoom, autofocus lens drive movement, vibration reduction, and aperture operation when brightness changes may be recorded.

The following phenomena may be seen in the monitor while recording movies.

These phenomena are saved in the recorded movies.

- Banding may occur in images under fluorescent, mercury-vapor, or sodium-vapor lighting.

- Subjects that move quickly from one side of the frame to the other, such as a moving train or car, may appear skewed.

- The entire movie image may be skewed when the camera is panned.

- Lighting or other bright areas may leave residual images when the camera is moved.

Depending on the distance to the subject or the amount of zoom applied, colored stripes may appear on subjects with repeating patterns (fabrics, lattice windows, etc.) during movie recording and playback.

This occurs when the pattern in the subject and the layout of the image sensor interfere with each other; it is not a malfunction.

B

Notes About Autofocus for Movie Recording

Autofocus may not perform as expected (

E20). Should this occur, focus using

manual focus (

A41, 42) or try the following:

1. Set Autofocus mode in the movie menu to Single AF (default setting) before starting movie recording.

2. Frame another subject (positioned at the same distance from the camera as the intended subject) in the center of the frame, press the b (e) button to start recording, and modify the composition.

Capturing Still Images While Recording

Movies

If the shutter-release button is pressed all the way while recording a movie, one frame is saved as a still image. Movie recording continues while the still image is being saved.

A still image can be captured when Q is

displayed in the monitor. When f is displayed, a still image cannot be captured.

The image size of the still images to be saved

is determined by the type (image size) (

E81)

of the original movie.

B

Notes About Capturing Still Images During Movie Recording

Still images cannot be saved during movie recording in the following situations:

- When movie recording is paused

- When the remaining movie recording time is less than 5 seconds

- When Movie options (

A54) is set to g 480/30p, s 480/25p or HS

movie

The frames of a movie that were recorded when a still image was being captured may not play back smoothly.

The sounds of operating the shutter-release button when saving a still image may be heard in the recorded movie.

If the camera moves when the shutter-release button is pressed, the image may be blurred.

B

Notes About Location Data Functions

Before using the location data functions, read “<Important> Notes About Location

Data Functions (GPS/GLONASS)” (

Axi).

It takes a few minutes to obtain location data when positioning is performed for the first time or in a situation where positioning cannot be performed for a long period of time, or just after the battery is replaced.

Using the latest A-GPS file can shorten the time needed for obtaining the location data (

E93).

Positions of the positioning satellites change constantly.

You may not be able to determine the position or it may take some time depending on your location and the time.

To use the location data functions, use the camera in an open-air area with few obstacles in the sky.

Signal receiving will be smoother if the positioning antenna (

A2) is facing the sky.

The following locations which block or reflect signals may result in failed or inaccurate positioning.

- Inside buildings or underground locations

- Between high-rise buildings

- Under overpasses

- Inside tunnels

- Near high-voltage electrical power lines

- Between clusters of trees

Using a mobile phone of 1.5 GHz band near this camera may disrupt positioning.

When carrying this camera around while positioning, do not place it in a metal bag.

Positioning cannot be performed if the camera is covered with metal materials.

When there is a significant difference in the signals from the positioning satellites, there could be a deviation of up to several hundred meters.

Be aware of your surroundings when positioning.

The shooting date and time that is displayed when playing back images is determined by the camera’s internal clock at the time of shooting.

The time when location data is obtained will be recorded on images, but it will not be displayed on the camera.

The location data for the first frame will be recorded on a series of images shot using continuous shooting.

B

Battery Drain While Recording Location Data and Log Recording

When Record location data is set to On, record location data functions will continue to operate at the specified interval for approximately 6 hours even after the camera is turned off. Also, record location data functions and log recording

function will continue to operate during log recording (

E42) even after the

camera is turned off.

When Record location data is set to On or during log recording, the battery power will drain faster than usual.

Metering

Rotate the mode dial to j, k, l, m or M M d button M j, k, l, m or

The process of measuring the brightness of the subject to determine the exposure is known as “metering.”

Use this option to set the method of how the camera meters exposure.

Option

G Matrix

(default setting) q Center-weighted r Spot

Description

The camera uses a wide area of the screen for metering.

Recommended for typical shooting.

The camera meters the entire frame but assigns greatest weight to the subject in the center of the frame. The classic metering for portraits; it preserves background details while letting lighting conditions in the center of the frame determine exposure.*

The camera meters the area shown by the circle in the center of the frame. This can be used when the subject is much lighter or darker than the background. Ensure that the subject is within the area shown by the circle when shooting.*

* To set focus and exposure for off-center subjects, change AF area mode to manual and set the focus area to the center of the frame, and then use focus lock

(

E21).

Description

One image is captured each time the shutter-release button is pressed.

While the shutter-release button is held all the way down, images are captured continuously.

The frame rate for continuous shooting is about 7 fps and the maximum number of continuous shots is about 7 (when image quality is set to Normal and image size is set to i 4608×3456).

While the shutter-release button is held all the way down, images are captured continuously.

The frame rate for continuous shooting is about 2 fps and the maximum number of continuous shots is about 200 (when image quality is set to Normal and image size is set to i 4608×3456).

Pre-shooting cache shooting begins when the shutterrelease button is pressed halfway. When the shutterrelease button is pressed the rest of the way down, the camera saves the current image as well as the images captured immediately before the button is pressed

(

E68). Pre-shooting cache makes it easy to capture

perfect moments.

The frame rate for continuous shooting is about 15 fps and the maximum number of continuous shots is 20

(including a maximum of 5 frames captured in the pre-shooting cache).

The image quality is fixed at Normal and the image size is fixed at A (1280 × 960 pixels).

While the shutter-release button is held all the way down, the camera captures a series of up to 10 images and automatically saves the sharpest image.

Use when shooting a stationary subject in a place where flash photography is prohibited and camera shake is likely to occur.

Each time the shutter-release button is pressed all the way, the camera captures a series of

16 images and saves it as a single image.

The frame rate for continuous shooting is about 30 fps.

Image size is fixed at D (2560 × 1920 pixels).

Digital zoom is not available.

The camera shoots still images automatically at the specified interval (

E68).

B

Notes About Continuous Shooting

Focus, exposure and white balance are fixed at the values determined with the first shot in each series.

It may take some time to save the images after shooting.

When ISO sensitivity increases, noise may appear in captured images.

The frame rate may become slower depending on the image quality, image size, memory card type or shooting conditions.

When using Multi-shot 16, Continuous H: 120 fps or Continuous H: 60 fps, banding or variance in brightness or hue may occur in images that were captured under lighting that flashes quickly at high speeds, such as fluorescent, mercuryvapor, or sodium-vapor lighting.

Caring for the Product

Observe the precautions described below in addition to the warnings in “For

Your Safety” (

Avi-viii) 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 or lens cover.

Keep Dry

The device will be damaged if immersed in water or subjected to high humidity.

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 product memory or internal circuitry.

Notes About the Monitor

Monitors and 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

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

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.

F

3

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.

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.

Recharge the battery at least once every six months and completely exhaust it 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.

F

4

Recycling Used Batteries

Replace the battery when it no longer holds a charge. Used batteries are a valuable resource. Please recycle used batteries in accordance with local regulations.

The Charging AC Adapter

The Charging AC Adapter EH-71P/EH-71PCH 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 Charging AC Adapter EH-71P/EH-71PCH, 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-71P/EH-71PCH 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.

Memory Cards

Precautions for Use

Use only Secure Digital memory cards. See “Approved Memory Cards” (

F20) for

recommended memory cards.

Be sure to follow the precautions described in the documentation included with the memory card.

Do not put labels or stickers on memory cards.

Formatting

Do not format the memory card using a computer.

The first time you insert a memory card that has been used in another device into this camera, be sure to format it with this camera. We recommend formatting new memory cards with this camera before using them with this camera.

• Note that formatting a memory card permanently deletes all images and

other data on the memory card. Be sure to make copies of any images you wish to keep before formatting the memory card.

If the message Card is not formatted. Format card? is displayed when the camera is turned on, the memory card must be formatted. If there is data that you do not want to delete, select No. Copy the necessary data to a computer, etc. If you want to format the memory card, select Yes. The confirmation dialog will be displayed. To start formatting, press the k button.

Do not perform the following during formatting, while data is being written to or deleted from the memory card, or during data transfer to a computer. Failure to observe this precaution could result in the loss of data or in damage to the camera or memory card:

- Open the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover to remove/insert the battery or memory card.

- Turn off the camera.

- Disconnect the AC adapter.
