CAUTIONS
Do not place this camera in a location affected by oil fumes or steam, such as near a
cooking stove or humidifier. This may cause a fire or an electrical shock.
Do not leave this camera in a location subject to extremely high temperatures, such as in a
sealed vehicle or in direct sunlight. Exposure to high temperatures may adversely affect
the camera case and internal components and may cause a fire.
Do not cover or wrap the camera with a cloth or quilt. This may cause heat to build up and
distort the camera case and cause a fire. Always use the camera and accessories in well-
ventilated locations.
Handle the camera carefully and do not expose the camera to shock or vibration. Handling
the camera roughly may cause a malfunction.
Do not use batteries other than those specified for use with your camera. Use of unsuitable
batteries may result in the batteries splitting, or leaking and may cause a fire, injury, or
soiling of the battery compartment.
When placing the batteries into the camera, check the polarity markings on the batteries
(- and + ) to ensure that the batteries are inserted correctly. Incorrect battery polarity will
result in camera inoperability and may result in the batteries splitting or leaking and causing
a fire, injury, or soiling of the battery compartment.
Remove the batteries if the camera will not be used for an extended period of time. The
batteries may leak and cause a fire, injury or soiling of the battery compartment. If the
batteries leak, clean and wipe the battery compartment carefully and install new batteries.
Wash your hands carefully if you touch the battery fluid.
