Caring for the Camera

To ensure continued enjoyment of this Nikon product, observe the following 
precautions when using or storing the device:

B

Keep dry

The device will be damaged if immersed in water or subjected to high humidity.

B

Do not drop

The product may malfunction if subjected to strong shock or vibration.

B

Handle the lens and all moving parts with care

Do not apply force to the lens, lens cover, monitor, memory card slot or battery chamber. These 
parts are easily damaged. Applying force to the lens cover could result in camera malfunction or 
damage to the lens. Should the monitor break, care should be taken to avoid injury caused by 
broken glass and to prevent the liquid crystal from the display touching the skin or entering the eyes 
or mouth.

B

Do not point the lens at strong light sources for extended periods

Avoid pointing the lens at the sun or other strong light sources for extended periods when using or 
storing the camera. Intense light may cause deterioration of the CCD image sensor, producing a 
white blur effect in photographs.

B

Keep away from strong magnetic fields

Do not use or store this device in the vicinity of equipment that generates strong electromagnetic 
radiation or magnetic fields. Strong static charges or the magnetic fields produced by equipment 
such as radio transmitters could interfere with the monitor, damage data stored on the memory 
card, or affect the product’s internal circuitry.

B

Avoid sudden changes in temperature

Sudden changes in temperature, such as when entering or leaving a heated building on a cold day, 
can cause condensation to form inside the device. To prevent condensation, place the device in a 
carrying case or a plastic bag before exposing it to sudden changes in temperature.

B

Turn the product off before removing or disconnecting the power source

Do not remove the battery while the product is on, or while images are being recorded or deleted. 
Forcibly cutting power in these circumstances could result in loss of data or in damage to product 
memory or internal circuitry.
