Care of the camera
Do not subject to strong vibration, shock, or pressure.
• The lens, monitor, or external case may be damaged if used in the following conditions.
It may also malfunction or image may not be recorded if you:
– Drop or hit the camera.
– Press hard on the lens or the monitor.
This camera is not dust/drip/water proof.
Avoid using the camera in places with a lot of dust, water, sand, etc.
• Liquid, sand and other foreign material may get into the space around the lens, buttons,
etc. Be particularly careful since it may not just cause malfunctions, but it may also
become irreparable.
– Places with a lot of sand or dust.
– Places where water can come into contact with this unit, such as when using it on a
rainy day or at the beach.
Do not place your hands inside the mount of the digital camera body. Since
the sensor unit is a precision apparatus, it may cause a malfunction or
damage.
If sand, dust, or liquids such as water droplets adhere to the monitor, wipe them off
with a dry soft cloth.
– Not doing so may cause the monitor to respond incorrectly to touch operations.
Keep objects sensitive to magnetic fields (credit cards, etc.) away from the
camera. Otherwise, magnetic fields may damage their data and make them
unusable.
∫ About Condensation (When the lens or monitor is fogged up)
• Condensation occurs when the ambient temperature or humidity changes. Be careful of
condensation since it causes lens and monitor stains, fungus and camera malfunction.
• If condensation occurs, turn the camera off and leave it for about 2 hours. The fog will
disappear naturally when the temperature of the camera becomes close to the ambient
temperature.
For smoother recording, we recommend updating the firmware of the
interchangeable lens to the latest version.
• To view the latest information on the firmware or to download the firmware, visit
the support site below:
https://panasonic.jp/support/global/cs/dsc/
(This Site is English only.)
• To check the firmware version of the interchangeable lens, attach it to the camera body
and select [Version Disp.] in the [Setup] menu.

∫ Technique for Panorama Shot Mode
Taking panorama pictures in Self Shot Mode
Swivel the camera around its centre when moving it
in the recording direction. Hold the camera with
both hands, taking care not to shake it.
• When the focal length is long, such as when a
telephoto lens is attached, move the camera slowly.
• If the camera shakes too much, pictures may not be
able to be recorded, or the recorded panorama
picture may become narrower (smaller).
• Move the camera towards the edge of the range you
wish to record.
(The edge of the range will not be recorded in the last
frame.)
• If you change the facial expression or blink, the
recorded picture may look unnatural. Try to stay still.
• We recommend setting the zoom position to Wide
when using Self Shot Mode.
• Since the distance between the camera and subject is
close when you take panorama pictures in Self Shot
Mode, the edges of the pictures may appear
significantly distorted.
