About the lens, the microphone, and the speaker
Do not press the lens with excessive force.
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.
If there is water or dirt on the lens, wipe it off with dry soft cloth before taking a picture.
A sound might be muffled or warped when there is water on the microphone or the speaker. Wipe
the residues after letting the water drip out from the microphone and speaker by tipping the camera
downward, and use it after letting it dry for a while.
Do not poke the holes of microphone and speaker with sharp points. (It may damage the waterproof
sheet inside, which may damage the waterproof performance.)
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.
Place the removed battery in a plastic bag, and store or carry away from metallic objects (clips, etc.).
If you drop the battery accidentally, check to see if the body of the battery and the
terminals are damaged.
Inserting a damaged battery in the camera will damage the camera.
Bring charged spare batteries when going out.
Be aware that the operating time of the battery becomes shorter in cold places such as ski resorts or
places at high altitude.
When you travel, do not forget to bring the battery charger (supplied) so that you can charge the
battery in the country that you are travelling in.
Dispose of unusable battery.
The battery has a limited life.
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
