93 874 VIII/18/D SAFETY REMARKS
GENERAL INFORMATION
• Do not use your camera in the immediate vicinity of devices with powerful magnetic, electrostatic
or electromagnetic fields (e.g. induction ovens, microwave ovens, television sets or computer
monitors, video game consoles, cell phones, broadcasting equipment). Their electromagnetic fields
can interfere with recordings.
• Image recording may be affected if you place the camera on a television set or operate the camera
in its vicinity or near a cell phone.
• Strong magnetic fields, e.g. from speakers or large electric motors, can damage the stored picture
data or disrupt recording.
• Switch off the camera, remove the battery and switch the camera back on if the camera malfunc –
tions due to the effects of electromagnetic fields.
• Do not use the camera in the immediate vicinity of radio transmitters or high-voltage power lines.
Their electromagnetic fields can also interfere with recordings.
• Always store small parts e.g. the accessory shoe cover as follows:
– out of the reach of children
– in a safe location, where they will not get lost or stolen
• State-of-the-art electronic components are sensitive to static discharge. You can easily pick up
charges of several 10,000 volts by simply walking on synthetic floor coverings. A static discharge
can occur when you touch the camera, and especially if it is placed on a conductive surface. A
static discharge on the camera housing poses no risk for the electronics. Despite built-in safety
circuits, you should avoid direct contact with external camera contacts like those in the flash shoe.
• Take care not to soil or scratch the sensor for lens detection (6-bit encoding) in the bayonet. You
must similarly prevent direct contact of the bayonet with grains of sand or similar particles, as
these could cause irreparable damage. This camera component must only be cleaned with a dry
cloth.
• Use a cotton or linen cloth instead of an optical micro-fiber cloth (synthetic). Before touching the
contacts, you can make sure you discharge any electrostatic charge by deliberately touching a
heating or water pipe (conductive, grounded material). Dirt deposits and oxidation on the contacts
can be avoided by storing your camera in a dry location with the lens cap and flash shoe cap
attached.
• Use only accessories specified for this model to prevent faults, short circuits or electric shock.
• Do not attempt to remove parts of the housing (covers) yourself. Repairs must be done at
authorized service centers only.
• Protect the camera against contact with insect sprays and other aggressive chemicals. Petroleum
spirit, thinner and alcohol must not be used for cleaning. Some chemicals and liquids can damage
the camera housing or the surface finish.
• Rubber and plastics are known to expel aggressive chemicals and should therefore not be kept in
contact with the camera for extended periods of time.
• Prevent any sand or dust or water penetration into the camera, e.g. during snowfall or rain or on
the beach. Be extra careful when changing the lens and inserting or removing the memory card
and battery. Sand and dust can damage the camera, the lens, the memory card and the battery.
Moisture can cause malfunctions and irreparable damage to the camera and memory card.LENS
• A camera lens can have the effect of a magnifying glass when exposed to direct frontal sunlight.
The camera must therefore be protected against extended exposure to direct sunlight. Using the
lens cap and keeping the camera in the shade or ideally in its camera case will help prevent
damage to the interior of the camera.
BATTERY
• Improper use of the batteries or the use of unapproved battery types may result in an explosion!
• Do not expose the rechargeable battery to sunlight, heat, humidity or moisture for prolonged
periods of time. Likewise, the batteries must not be placed in a microwave oven or a high-pressure
container as this would pose a fire or explosion hazard.
• Do not under any circumstances charge or insert a damp or wet battery!
• A safety valve in the battery ensures that any excess pressure caused by improper handling is
discharged safely. It is nevertheless important to dispose of a bloated battery immediately. This
battery will pose an explosion hazard!
• Keep the battery contacts clean and easily accessible. Although lithium-ion batteries are secured
against short circuits, they should still be protected against contact with metal objects like paper
clips or jewelry. A short-circuited battery can get very hot and cause severe burns.
• When a battery is accidentally dropped, make sure to check the housing and the contacts
immediately for any damage. A damaged battery can damage the camera.
• In case of noise, discoloration, deformation, overheating or leaking fluid, the battery must be
removed from the camera or charger immediately and replaced. Continued use of the battery may
result in overheating, which can cause fire and/or explosion!
• Never throw batteries into a fire as they might explode!
• Keep the battery away from sources of heat in case of a leak or a smell of burning. Leaked fluid
can catch fire!
• The use of other chargers not approved by Leica Camera AG can cause damage to the batteries
and, in extreme cases, may cause serious or life-threatening injuries.
• Connect the charger to a freely accessible power socket.
• The car charging cable supplied must never be connected while the charger is connected to the
mains.
• Battery and charger must not be opened. Repairs must only be carried out by authorized service
centers.
• Keep batteries out of the reach of children. Batteries can cause suffocation when swallowed.
CHARGER
• Using the charger in the vicinity of broadcasting receivers may interfere with the reception of the
device. Ensure a distance of at least 1 m (3 ft) between the charger and the receiver.
• When the charger is in use, it may emit a buzzing sound – this is normal and not a malfunction.
• Disconnect the charger from the mains when it is not in use, because it consumes some (a very
small amount) electricity, even when no battery is inserted.
• Always keep the charger contacts clean, and never short circuit them.
• The car charging cable supplied must only be operated in 12V in-car grids and must never be
connected while the charger is connected to mains electricity.MEMORY CARDS
• Never remove the memory card during a datasave or card reading process. The camera must not
be switched off or be subjected to impact or vibrations while working.
• Do not open the cover/remove the memory card or the battery while the status LED is lit, which
indicates memory access. Data on the card may otherwise be destroyed and camera malfunctions
may occur.
• Do not drop or bend memory cards as this will cause damage and result in the loss of the stored
data.
• Do not touch the connections on the reverse of the memory card and keep them clean and dry.
• Keep memory cards out of the reach of children. Swallowing a memory card may cause suffoca –
tion.
SENSOR
• Cosmic radiation (e.g. during flights) may cause pixel defects.
CARRY STRAP
• Carry straps are usually made of very robust material. You should therefore keep it out of the reach
of children. A carry strap is not a toy and poses a strangulation risk.
• Use the carry straps only for their intended purpose on a camera or on binoculars. Any other use
poses the risk of injury and may possibly result in damage to the carry strap and is therefore not
permitted.
• Carry straps should also not be used for cameras/binoculars during sports activities with a high
risk of getting entangled in the carry strap (e.g. mountain climbing and similar outdoor activities).
