When using in a cold climate or at low temperatures
It may cause injury to the skin if you directly touch the metal parts of the unit in places where
temperature is very low [environments under 0 oC (32 oF), such as ski resorts or places at
high altitude] for a long period of time.
Use gloves or similar when using it for long periods.
The performance of the battery (number of recordable pictures/operating time) may decrease
temporarily when using in a temperature between j10 oC and 0 oC (14 oF and 32 oF) (cold places
such as ski resorts or places at high altitude).
The battery cannot be recharged in a temperature less than 0 oC (32 oF). (The [CHARGE] indicator
blinks when the battery cannot be recharged.)
If the camera gets very cold in cold places such as ski resorts or places at high altitude, performance
of the LCD monitor may temporarily drop immediately after turning this unit on, e.g. the picture on
the LCD monitor being slightly darker than usual or ghost images appearing. In cold environments,
keep the camera warm during use by keeping it inside your cold-weather gear or clothes. The
performance will resume as normal when the internal temperature rises.
If the camera is used in cold places such as ski resorts or places at high altitude with snow or water
droplets adhered to the camera, some parts of the camera may become hard to move or the sound
may become dim with snow or water droplets freezing in the gap of the zoom button, the camera
[ON/OFF] button, speakers, and microphone. This is not a malfunction.
