The Camera

To ensure continued enjoyment of this Nikon product, observe the precautions 
described below in addition to the warnings in “For Your Safety” (

Avii-ix) 

when using or storing the device.

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.

B

Keep Dry

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

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

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 charge or the magnetic 
fields produced by equipment such as radio transmitters could interfere with the 
monitor, damage data saved on the memory card, or affect the product’s internal 
circuitry.

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 
image sensor, producing a white blur effect in photographs.

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 saved 
or deleted. Forcibly cutting power in these circumstances could result in loss of data 
or in damage to product memory or internal circuitry.
