Notes on handling the product
• This camera is designed to be dust
resistant and splash resistant, but
it is not guaranteed to completely
prevent the ingress of dust or water
• Do not leave the lens or the
viewfinder exposed to a strong light
source such as sunlight. Because
of the lens's condensing function,
doing so may cause smoke, fire, or
a malfunction inside the camera
body or the lens. If you have to
leave the camera exposed to a light
source such as sunlight, attach the
lens cap to the lens.
• When you shoot with backlighting,
keep the sun sufficiently far away
from the angle of view. Otherwise,
the sunlight may enter the focus
inside the camera and cause smoke
or fire. Even if the sun is slightly
away from the angle of view, it may
still cause smoke or fire.
• Do not directly expose the lens to
beams such as laser beams. That
may damage the image sensor and
cause the camera to malfunction.
• Do not look at sunlight or a strong
light source through the lens when
it is detached. This may result in
unrecoverable damage to the eyes.
• Do not leave the camera, the
supplied accessories, or memory
cards within the reach of infants.
They may be accidentally
swallowed. If this occurs, consult a
Notes on the monitor and
• The monitor and electronic
viewfinder are manufactured
using extremely high-precision
technology, and over 99.99% of the
pixels are operational for effective
use. However, there may be some
small black dots and/or bright
dots (white, red, blue or green in
color) that constantly appear on the
monitor and electronic viewfinder.
These dots are normal due to the
manufacturing process and do not
affect the images in any way.
• When shooting with the viewfinder,
you may experience symptoms
such as eyestrain, fatigue,
travel sickness, or nausea. We
recommend that you take a break
at regular intervals when you are
shooting with the viewfinder.
• If the monitor or electronic
viewfinder is damaged, stop using
the camera immediately. The
damaged parts may harm your
hands, face, etc.
Notes on continuous shooting
During continuous shooting, the
monitor or viewfinder may flash
between the shooting screen and a
black screen. If you keep watching
the screen in this situation, you may
experience uncomfortable symptoms
such as feeling of unwellness. If you
experience uncomfortable symptoms,
stop using the camera, and consult
your doctor as necessary.
