The Battery and Charger

Read and follow the warnings and cautions on pages x–xii and 164–

167 of this manual

. Do not use the battery at ambient temperatures below 0°C/32°F or above 40°C/104°F; failure to observe this precaution could damage the battery or impair its performance. Capacity may be reduced and charging times may increase at battery temperatures from 0°C/32°F to 10°C/50°F and from 45°C/113°F to

60°C/140°F; the battery will not charge if its temperature is below

0°C/32°F or above 60°C/140°F.

Charge the battery at ambient temperatures between 5°C/41°F and

35 °C/95 °F. If the

CHARGE

lamp flickers during charging, cease use immediately and take battery and charger to your retailer or a

Nikon-authorized service representative.

Do not move the charger or touch the battery during charging. Failure to observe this precaution could in very rare instances result in the charger showing that charging is complete when the battery is only partially charged. Remove and reinsert the battery to begin charging again.

Use the charger with compatible batteries only. Unplug when not in use.

3 Insert the battery and a memory card.

Check to be sure the battery and card are in the correct orientation. Using the battery to keep the orange battery latch pressed to one side, slide the battery in until it latches, and then slide in the memory card until it clicks into place.

Do not remove memory cards from the camera, turn the camera off, or remove or disconnect the power source during formatting or while data are being recorded, deleted, or copied to a computer. Failure to observe these precautions could result in loss of data or in damage to the camera or card.

Do not touch the card terminals with your fingers or metal objects.

Do not bend, drop, or subject to strong physical shocks.

Do not apply force to the card casing. Failure to observe this precaution could damage the card.

Do not expose to water, heat, high levels of humidity, or direct sunlight.

tion (VR).

16

The Camera Clock

The camera clock is less accurate than most watches and household clocks. Check the clock regularly against more accurate time pieces and reset as necessary.

The camera clock is powered by an independent, rechargeable power source, which is charged as necessary when the main battery is installed or the camera is powered by an optional EP-5C power

connector and EH-5b AC adapter (

0

161). Three days of charging

will power the clock for about a month. If a message warning that the clock has been reset is displayed when the camera is turned on, the clock battery is exhausted and the clock has been reset. Set the clock to the correct time and date.
