Safety warning and notice

Before operating the camera, please make sure that you read and fully understand the content in this section. If you ignore and violate all safety warning notices indicated in this section, the camera warranty may be void. Meanwhile, not only the camera but also you and all other people and things around you may be severely damaged, injured, or even placed in danger of death.

For your safety

Keep the camera and its accessories out of the reach of babies, toddlers, and children. In particular, small parts such as memory cards and batteries could be easily dismantled and swallowed by them.

Use only the original accessories to avoid possible risks to health and property, and thus meet all related legal regulations.

Do not dismantle the camera under any circumstances.

When using the flash, do not go too close to human eyes (particularly for babies, toddlers, and children) or animal eyes. Otherwise, when the flash fires, the light may cause damage to human eyes or irritate animals.

Batteries could explode, for instance. All batteries can cause property damage, injury or burns if a conductive material such as jewelry, keys or beaded chains touch exposed terminals. The material may complete an electrical circuit and become quite hot. Exercise care in handling any batteries, particularly when placing it inside your pocket, purse, or other container with metal objects. Do not dispose of batteries in fire as they may explode.

To prevent electric shock, do not attempt to disassemble or repair your camera by yourself.

Some camera models accept non-rechargeable batteries. When using these batteries, do not charge them. Otherwise, dangers such as explosion and fire may occur.

Risk of explosion if battery is replaced by an incorrect type. Dispose of used batteries according to the instructions.

Warranty

Warranty is void if damage or system failure occurred due to outside factors such as collision, fire, flood, dirt, sewage, earthquake, and other force majeure events as well as incorrect usage of electricity or use of non-original accessories.

It is the sole responsibility of the user if problems (such as data loss and system failure) occurred due to non-factory installed software, parts, and/or non-original accessories.

Do not change the camera. Any changes to the camera invalidate the warranty.

Taking care of your camera

Always keep the camera in the accompanying leather case or pouch for better protection against splashes, dust, and collision.

The only way of replacing the battery and the memory card is to open the battery/card cover.

Dispose of unwanted batteries and cameras as permitted by the laws in your countries.

Water may cause a fire or electric shock. Therefore, store your camera in a dry place.

If your camera becomes wet, wipe it with a dry cloth as soon as possible.

Salt or seawater may cause severe camera damage.

Do not drop, knock, or shake the camera. A rude behavior of using the camera may damage the internal electronic circuit board, deform the lens shape, or make the lens unretractable.

Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to clean the camera.

Finger grease may be left on the camera lens and will result in unclear images or videos. To avoid this problem, be sure to clean the camera lens before taking pictures or recording videos. You should also clean the camera lens on a regular basis.

If the lens is dirty, use a lens brush or soft cloth to clean the lens.

Do not touch the lens with your fingers.

If a foreign substance or water gets in your camera, please turn the power off immediately and disconnect the batteries. Next, remove the foreign substance or water and send it to the maintenance center.

Whenever there is data in the internal memory or the external memory card, you should make a backup copy to a computer or disc. So, you can have a backup solution if data loss occurs.

If the lens cannot retract into the camera, please replace the batteries first (usually this is because of drained batteries). Then the lens should retract automatically. If the lens still cannot retract, please contact your dealer.

Under no circumstances should you push the lens back manually as this may damage the camera.

All original accessories are designed only for use with this camera model you purchased. Do not use these accessories with other camera models or cameras of other brands to avoid unpredictable danger or damage.

Before initial use of a memory card, always use the camera to format the card first.

Remember to slide the write-protect tab (if available) to the unlock position. Otherwise, all data (if any) on the memory card is protected and the card cannot be edited or formatted.

Operating environment

Do not use or store your camera in the environments listed below:

Direct sunlight

Dusty places

Next to an air conditioner, electric heater or other heat sources

In a closed car that is in direct sunlight

Unstable locations

Do not use your camera outdoors when it is raining or snowing.

Do not use your camera in or near water.

The camera operating temperature is between 0 and 40 degrees Celsius. It is normal for the operating time to be shortened when the temperature is low.

The capacity of your camera batteries will reduce each time it is charged/emptied.

Storage at too high or low temperatures will also result in a gradual capacity loss. As a result, the operating time of your camera may be considerably reduced.

It is normal for the camera to become warm during operation, because the camera casing might conduct heat.

Do not hold the camera by excessive force. Plus, be sure to protect the camera from strong impacts.

If the battery suddenly depleted and caused the lens fail to retract, please carefully protect the lens to avoid collision and insert a battery with full power ASAP.

Keep your camera away from sharp objects and avoid collision.

To avoid accidental falling, please attach the hand strap to the camera and always hold the camera by keeping the hand strap around your wrist.

When the camera is not in use, always turn the power off and make sure the lens has retracted successfully before storing the camera in its case. If you do not intend to use the camera for a long time, please remove the battery

from the camera and store the battery carefully.

When the camera is not in use, please place it in a steady place. Plus, always keep your camera away from pressure or any other similar environment (for example, in a pant pocket) to avoid possible damage.

It is normal for the camera to become warm during operation, because the camera casing might conduct heat.

The LCD display on this camera is manufactured with sophisticated technology, and more than 99.99% of the pixels on the LCD display meet standard specifications. Yet, it is possible that less than 0.01% of the pixels on the LCD display may have some light spots or show unusual colors. This is normal and does not indicate display malfunction, nor will this affect the pictures you take with the camera.

The LCD monitor looks darker in strong sunlight or bright light. This is not a malfunction.

To prevent your images from being blurred while pressing the shutter button, always hold the camera steady. This is especially important when you are shooting under low lighting conditions, under which your camera may reduce the shutter speed to ensure your images are properly exposed.

Preparing the camera for use

Use only the specified battery for the camera, and always turn off the camera before removing the battery.
