THE FOLLOWING APPLIES ONLY IN THE U.S.A.
FCC Note:
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class
B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed
to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential
installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency
energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may
cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this
equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception,
which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is
encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following
measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the
receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
FCC Caution: To assure continued compliance, follow the attached installation
instructions and use only shielded interface cables with ferrite
core when connecting to computer or peripheral devices.
Any changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible
for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate this equipment.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the
following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference,
and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference
that may cause undesired operation.

This device complies with Industry Canada’s licence-exempt RSSs. Operation
is subject to the following two conditions:
(1) this device may not cause interference, and
(2) this device must accept any interference, including
interference that may cause undesired operation of the device.
The available scientific evidence does not show that any health problems are
associated with using low power wireless devices. There is no proof, however,
that these low power wireless devices are absolutely safe. Low power Wireless
devices emit low levels of radio frequency energy (RF) in the microwave range
while being used. Whereas high levels of RF can produce health effects (by
heating tissue), exposure of low-level RF that does not produce heating effects
causes no known adverse health effects. Many studies of low-level RF
exposures have not found any biological effects. Some studies have suggested
that some biological effects might occur, but such findings have not been
confirmed by additional research. DC-LX100M2 has been tested and found to
comply with IC radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled
environment and meets RSS-102 of the IC radio frequency (RF) Exposure
rules.

Cautions for Use
DC-LX100M2PPP-DVQX1572_eng.book 8 ページ 2018年8月7日 火曜日 午後5時10分9
(ENG) DVQX1572
• Before cleaning the camera, remove the battery or the DC coupler (DMW-DCC11:
optional), or disconnect the power plug from the outlet.
• Do not press the monitor with excessive force.
• Do not press the lens with excessive force.
• Do not spray the camera with insecticides or volatile chemicals.
• Do not keep rubber or plastic products in contact with the camera for a long
period of time.
• Do not use solvents such as benzine, thinner, alcohol, kitchen detergents, etc., to
clean the camera, since it may deteriorate the external case or the coating may
peel off.
• Do not leave the camera with the lens facing the sun, as rays of light from the sun
may cause it to malfunction.
• Always use the supplied cords and cables.
• Do not extend the cords or the cables.
• During access (image writing, reading and deleting, formatting etc.), do not turn
this unit off, remove the battery, card or disconnect the AC adaptor. Furthermore,
do not subject the camera to vibration, impact or static electricity.
• The data on the card may be damaged or lost due to electromagnetic waves, static
electricity or breakdown of the camera or the card. We recommend storing important
data on a PC etc.
• Do not format the card on your PC or other equipment. Format it on the camera only to
ensure proper operation.
• The battery is not charged when the camera is shipped. Charge the battery before
use.
• The battery is a rechargeable lithium ion battery. If the temperature is too high or
too low, the operating time of the battery will become shorter.
• The battery becomes warm after using and during and after charging. The camera also
becomes warm during use. This is not a malfunction.
• Do not leave any metal items (such as clips) near the contact areas of the power
plug or near the batteries.
• Store the battery in a cool and dry place with a relatively stable temperature:
(Recommended temperature: 15 oC to 25 oC (59 oF to 77 oF), Recommended
humidity: 40%RH to 60%RH)
• Do not store the battery for a long time while fully charged. When storing the
battery for a long period of time, we recommend charging it once a year. Remove the
battery from the camera and store it again after it has completely discharged.

Care of the camera
∫ Handling of the camera
Do not subject to strong vibration, shock, or pressure.
Avoid using the camera under the following conditions, which may damage the
lens, monitor, viewfinder, or external case.
This may also cause the camera to malfunction or prevent recording.
– Drop or hit the camera.
– Sitting down with the camera in your pants pocket or forcing it into a full bag.
– Press hard on the lens or the monitor.
The camera is not dust resistant, splash resistant, or waterproof.
Avoid using the camera in places with excessive dust or sand, or where
water can come into contact with the camera.
• Avoid using the camera under the following conditions, which present a risk that sand,
water, or foreign material may enter the camera through the lens or openings around
buttons. Be especially careful because these conditions may damage the camera, and
such damage may not be repairable.
– In extremely dusty or sandy places.
– In the rain or by the shore, where the camera may be exposed to water.
∫ About Condensation (When the lens, the viewfinder or monitor is fogged up)
• Condensation occurs when the ambient temperature or humidity changes. Be careful of
condensation since it causes lens, viewfinder 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.
