Care and Storage
- Please note that if fingerprints, dirt, etc. get onto the lens, picture quality will suffer.
- When dust or dirt does get on the lens, do not touch it directly with your fingers, and either use a blower (available in stores) to blow it off, or a soft cloth to gently dust it off.
- Wipe the lens particularly carefully after use at the beach or around chemicals.
- In the unlikely event that your camera fails to work properly, please consult the nearest service center.
- Never disassemble the camera by yourself, as this is dangerous.
- Do not get volatile substances, such as thinner, benzene, or pesticides on your camera. This may cause a change in quality, paint to peel, etc.
- If the camera exterior becomes dirty, dry wipe the exterior using a soft cloth such as a spectacles cloth, or wet wipe using a well-wrung out cloth. Do not use solvents, as doing so may cause the external surface of the product to corrode.
Use and Storage
- Please avoid using or storing your camera in the following kinds of places, as this may damage the camera.
Places with high temperature, high humidity, or rapid changes in humidity or temperature
Places with large amounts of sand or dust
Places with significant vibration
Places where it will be in contact with chemicals such as insect repellent or products made from rubber, vinyl, etc. for long periods of time
Places where strong magnetism is emitted (next to monitors, transformers, magnets, etc.)
- Store your camera in a dust-free camera bag, etc. to prevent dust or dirt from getting on the camera. Also, avoid carrying the camera without a case (in your pocket, etc.) to help to keep free from dust or fiber particles.
