• Do not leave the camera with the lens facing the sun as rays of light from the sun may cause it
to malfunction. Also, be careful when placing the camera outside or near a window.
• When there is dirt (water, oil, and fingerprints, etc.) on the surface of the lens, the picture may

• To prevent dust and other particles from accumulating on or entering
the lens, attach the lens rear cap when the lens is not in use.
• To protect the lens contact points A, do not place the lens with its
mount surface facing down. In addition, do not allow the lens contact
points to become dirty.
• To improve the dust- and splash-proof performance, the mount of the
interchangeable lens (H-ES12060/H-FS12060) is embedded with the
lens mount rubber. If you change the lens repeatedly, friction with the lens mount rubber may
leave scratches on the camera's mount. However, those scratches do not affect the
performance of this unit. For the replacement of the lens mount rubber, contact Panasonic.
The battery is a rechargeable lithium ion battery. Its ability to generate power comes
from the chemical reaction that takes place inside it. This reaction is susceptible to
the surrounding temperature and humidity. If the temperature is too high or too low,
the operating time of the battery will become shorter.
Always remove the battery after use.

• Be aware that the operating time of the battery becomes shorter in low temperature conditions
such as at a ski resort.
• When you travel, do not forget to bring the battery charger (supplied), AC adaptor (supplied)
and the USB connection cable (for charger) so that you can charge the battery in the country
that you are travelling in.
Dispose of unusable battery.

• Do not throw the battery into fire because it may cause an explosion.
Do not allow battery terminals to come into contact with metal objects (such as
necklaces, hairpins, etc.).
• This can cause short-circuiting or heat generation and you may be badly burned if you touch a
