Storage and Cleaning

Storage

If the camera will not be used for an extended period, remove the battery and store it in a cool, dry area with the terminal cover in place. To prevent mold or mildew, store the camera in a dry, well-ventilated area. Do not store your camera with naphtha or camphor moth balls or in locations that:

are poorly ventilated or subject to humidities of over 60%

are next to equipment that produces strong electromagnetic fields, such as televisions or radios

are exposed to temperatures above 50 °C (122 °F) or below –10 °C

(14 °F)

Cleaning

Camera body

Use a blower to remove dust and lint, then wipe gently with a soft, dry cloth. After using the camera at the beach or seaside, wipe off sand or salt with a cloth lightly dampened in distilled water and dry thoroughly.

Important

:

Dust or other foreign matter inside the camera may cause damage not covered under warranty

.

Lens

Monitor

Dust shield

Lenses are easily damaged. Remove dust and lint with a blower. If using an aerosol blower, keep the can vertical to prevent the discharge of liquid. To remove fingerprints and other stains, apply a small amount of lens cleaner to a soft cloth and clean with care.

Remove dust and lint with a blower. When removing fingerprints and other stains, wipe the surface lightly with a soft cloth or chamois leather. Do not apply pressure, as this could result in damage or malfunction.

The dust shield is easily damaged. Remove dust and lint with a blower.

Do not use alcohol, thinner, or other volatile chemicals

Caring for the Camera and Battery: Cautions

Do not drop

: The product may malfunction if subjected to strong shocks or vibration.

Keep dry

: This product is not waterproof, and may malfunction if immersed in water or exposed to high levels of humidity. Rusting of the internal mechanism can cause irreparable damage.

Avoid sudden changes in temperature

: Sudden changes in temperature, such as those that occur when entering or leaving a heated building on a cold day, can cause condensation inside the device. To prevent condensation, place the device in a carrying case or 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. Strong static charges or the magnetic fields produced by equipment such as radio transmitters could interfere with the displays, damage data stored on the memory card, or affect the product’s internal circuitry.

Do not leave the lens pointed at the sun

: Do not leave the lens pointed at the sun or other strong light source for an extended period. Intense light may cause the image sensor to deteriorate or produce a white blur effect in photographs.

Keep the lens mount covered

: Be sure to attach the body cap if the camera is without a lens.

Do not touch the dust shield

: The dust shield covering the image sensor is easily damaged. Under no circumstances should you exert pressure on the shield or poke it with cleaning tools. These actions could scratch or otherwise damage the shield.

Turn the product off before removing or disconnecting the power source

: Do not unplug the product or remove the battery while the product is on or while images are being recorded or deleted. Forcibly cutting power in these circumstances could result in loss of data or in damage to product memory or internal circuitry. To prevent an accidental interruption of power, avoid carrying the product from one location to another while the AC adapter is connected.

164

Cleaning

: When cleaning the camera body, use a blower to gently remove dust and lint, then wipe gently with a soft, dry cloth. After using the camera at the beach or seaside, wipe off any sand or salt using a cloth lightly dampened in pure water and then dry the camera thoroughly.

Lenses are easily damaged. Dust and lint should be gently removed with a blower. When using an aerosol blower, keep the can vertical to prevent discharge of liquid. To remove fingerprints and other stains, apply a small amount of lens cleaner to a soft cloth and wipe the lens carefully.

Storage

: To prevent mold or mildew, store the camera in a dry, well-ventilated area. If you are using an AC adapter, unplug the adapter to prevent fire. If the product will not be used for an extended period, remove the battery to prevent leakage and store the camera in a plastic bag containing a desiccant. Do not, however, store the camera case in a plastic bag, as this may cause the material to deteriorate. Note that desiccant gradually loses its capacity to absorb moisture and should be replaced at regular intervals.

To prevent mold or mildew, take the camera out of storage at least once a month. Turn the camera on and release the shutter a few times before putting it away.

Store the battery in a cool, dry place. Replace the terminal cover before putting the battery away.

Notes on the monitor

: This display may contain a few pixels that are always lit or that do not light. This is common to all TFT LCD displays and does not indicate a malfunction. Images recorded with the product are unaffected.

Images in the monitor may be difficult to see in a bright light.

Do not apply pressure to the display, as this could cause damage or malfunction. Dust or lint on the displays can be removed with a blower.

Stains can be removed by wiping lightly with a soft cloth or chamois leather. Should the monitor break, care should be taken to avoid injury from broken glass and to prevent liquid crystal from the display touching the skin or entering the eyes and mouth.

166

Moiré

: Moiré is an interference pattern created by the interaction of an image containing a regular, repeating grid, such as the pattern of weave in cloth or windows in a building, with the camera image sensor grid. In some cases, it may appear in the form of lines. If you notice moiré in your photographs, try changing the distance to the subject, zooming in and out, or changing the angle between the subject and the camera.

Lines

: Noise in the form of lines may in rare cases appear in pictures of extremely bright or backlit subjects.

Batteries

: Batteries may leak or explode if improperly handled. Observe the following precautions when handling batteries:

Use only batteries approved for use in this equipment.

Do not expose the battery to flame or excessive heat.

Keep the battery terminals clean.

Turn the product off before replacing the battery.

Remove the battery from the camera or charger when not in use and replace the terminal cover. These devices draw minute amounts of charge even when off and could draw the battery down to the point that it will no longer function. If the battery will not be used for some time, insert it in the camera and run it flat before removing it and storing it in a location with an ambient temperature of 15 to 25 °C (59 to

77 °F; avoid hot or extremely cold locations). Repeat this process at least once every six months.

Turning the camera on and off repeatedly when the battery is fully discharged will shorten battery life. Batteries that have been fully discharged must be charged before use.

The internal temperature of the battery may rise while the battery is in use. Attempting to charge the battery while the internal temperature is elevated will impair battery performance, and the battery may not charge or charge only partially. Wait for the battery to cool before charging.

Continuing to charge the battery after it is fully charged can impair battery performance.

A marked drop in the time a fully charged battery retains its charge when used at room temperature indicates that it requires replacement.

Purchase a new EN-EL20 battery.

Charge the battery before use. When taking photographs on important occasions, ready a spare EN-EL20 battery and keep it fully charged.

Depending on your location, it may be difficult to purchase replacement batteries on short notice. Note that on cold days, the capacity of batteries tends to decrease. Be sure the battery is fully charged before taking photographs outside in cold weather. Keep a spare battery in a warm place and exchange the two as necessary. Once warmed, a cold battery may recover some of its charge.

Used batteries are a valuable resource; recycle in accord with local regulations.

D

Servicing the Camera and Accessories

The camera is a precision device and requires regular servicing. Nikon recommends that the camera be inspected by the original retailer or

Nikon-authorized service representative once every one to two years, and that it be serviced once every three to five years (note that fees apply to these services). Frequent inspection and servicing are particularly recommended if the camera is used professionally. Any accessories regularly used with the camera, such as lenses or optional flash units, should be included when the camera is inspected or serviced.

Lens Care

When using an optional lens hood, do not pick up or hold the lens or camera using only the hood.

Keep the CPU contacts clean.

Use a blower to remove dust and lint from the lens surfaces. To remove smudges and fingerprints, apply a small amount of ethanol or lens cleaner to a soft, clean cotton cloth or lens-cleaning tissue and clean from the center outwards using a circular motion, taking care not to leave smears or touch the glass with your fingers.

Never use organic solvents such as paint thinner or benzene to clean the lens.

A lens hood or NC filter can be used to protect the front lens element.

Attach the front and rear caps when the lens is not in use.

If the lens will not be used for an extended period, store it in a cool, dry location to prevent mold and rust. Do not store in direct sunlight or with naphtha or camphor moth balls.

Keep the lens dry. Rusting of the internal mechanism can cause irreparable damage.

Leaving the lens in extremely hot locations could damage or warp parts made from reinforced plastic.

Battery Life

The number of shots that can be taken with fully-charged batteries varies with the condition of the battery, temperature, the interval between shots, and the length of time menus are displayed. Sample figures for EN-EL20 (1020 mAh) batteries are given below.

• Still images: Approximately 230

• Movies: Approximately 70 minutes of HD footage at 1080/60i

Values for still images measured at 25 °C/77 °F with a fullycharged EN-EL20 battery, a 1 NIKKOR VR 10–30mm f/3.5–5.6

lens, and a 16 GB Toshiba R95 W80MB/s UHS-I SDHC card according to the CIPA standard under the following test conditions: NORMAL-quality photographs taken at intervals of 30 s with the flash fired with every other shot and the camera turned off and then on after every ten shots.

The following can reduce battery life:

Keeping the shutter-release button pressed halfway

Repeated autofocus operations

Taking NEF (RAW) photographs

Slow shutter speeds

Using vibration reduction mode with VR lenses

To ensure that you get the most from rechargeable Nikon

EN-EL20 batteries:

Keep the battery contacts clean. Soiled contacts can reduce battery performance.

Use batteries immediately after charging. Batteries will lose their charge if left unused.
