Data Error Precautions

Your digital camera is manufactured using precision digital components. Any of the 
following creates the risk of corruption of data in camera memory.

– Removing the battery or memory card while the camera is performing some 

operation

– Removing the battery or memory card while the back lamp is flashing green after 

turning off the camera

– Disconnecting the USB cable while communication is in progress
– Shooting with a battery that quickly goes low right after it is charged

• Shooting with a battery that quickly goes low right after it is charged can also 

cause camera malfunction. Replace the battery with a new one immediately.

– Other abnormal operations

Any of the above conditions can cause an error message to appear on the monitor 
screen (page 197). Perform the action indicated by the message that appears.

Operating Environment

• Operating Temperature Requirements: 0 to 40°C (32 to 104°F)
• Operating Humidity: 10 to 85% (non condensation)
• Do not place the camera in any of the following locations.

– In an area exposed to direct sunlight, or large amounts of moisture, dust, or sand
– Near heating or cooling devices, or in other areas subjected to extreme changes 

in temperature or humidity

– Inside of a motor vehicle on a hot day, or in an area subjected to strong vibration

.

Condensation

Sudden and extreme temperature changes, such as when the camera is moved from 
the outdoors on a cold winter day into a warm room, can cause water droplets called 
“condensation” to form on the interior and the exterior of the camera, which creates 
the risk of malfunction. To prevent condensation from forming seal the camera in a 
plastic bag before changing locations. Then leave the bag sealed to allow the air 
inside to naturally change to the same temperature as the air in the new location. 
After that, remove the camera from the bag and open the battery cover for a few 
hours.
