1. Introduction
™ Firmware of Your Camera/Lens
Firmware updates may be provided in order to improve camera capabilities or to add
functionality. For smoother recording, we recommend updating the firmware of the
camera/lens to the latest version.
0 For the latest information on the firmware or to download/
update the firmware, visit the following support site:
https://panasonic.jp/support/global/cs/dsc/
(English only)
0 To check the firmware version of the camera/lens, attach the lens to
the camera and select [Firmware Version] in the [Setup] ([Others])
menu. You can also update the firmware in [Firmware Version].
0 This document provides explanations for camera firmware version 1.0. Changes
after firmware update are detailed in the “Operating Instructions” (PDF format). Refer
to this by downloading from the website. ( l 4)
™ Handling of the Camera
When using the camera, take care not to drop it, bump it, or apply undue force.
These may cause malfunction or damage to the camera and lens.
If sand, dust, or liquid gets on the monitor, wipe it off with a dry soft cloth.
– Touch operations may be incorrectly recognised.
When using in low temperatures (s10 oC to 0 oC (14 oF to 32 oF))
– Before use, attach a Panasonic lens with a minimum recommended operating
temperature of j10 oC (14 oF).
Do not place a hand inside the camera mount.
This may cause a failure or damage because the sensor is a precision device.
If you shake the camera while turning the camera off, a sensor may operate or a
rattling sound may be heard. This is caused by the image stabiliser mechanism
in the body. It is not a malfunction.
Before Use
DC-S1HMST-DVQX1944_eng.book 13 ページ 2019年8月8日 木曜日 午前11時30分1. Introduction

™ Splash Resistant
Splash Resistant is a term used to describe an extra level of protection this
camera offers against exposure to a minimal amount of moisture, water or dust.
Splash Resistant does not guarantee that damage will not occur if this camera is
subjected to direct contact with water.
In order to minimise the possibility of damage please be sure the following
precautions are taken:
– Splash Resistant works in conjunction with the lenses that were specifically
designed to support this feature.
– Securely close the doors, socket caps, contact points cover, etc.
– When the lens or cap is removed or a door is open, do not allow sand, dust, and
moisture to enter inside.
– If liquid gets on the camera, wipe it off with a dry soft cloth.
™ Condensation (When the Lens, the Viewfinder or Monitor
is Fogged Up)
0 Condensation occurs when there are temperature or humidity differences.
Take care as this may lead to soiling, mould, and malfunctions in the lens,
viewfinder, and monitor.
0 If condensation occurs, turn off the camera and leave it for approx. 2 hours. The fog
will disappear naturally when the temperature of the camera becomes close to the
ambient temperature.
™ Be Sure to Perform Trial Recording in Advance
Perform trial recording in advance of an important event (wedding, etc.) to check that
recording can be performed normally.
™ No Compensation Regarding Recording
Please note that compensation cannot be provided in the event that recording could
not be performed due to a problem with the camera or a card.
™ Be Careful with Regard to Copyrights
Under copyright law, you may not use the images and audio you have recorded for
other than personal enjoyment without the permission of the copyright holder.
Be careful because there are cases where restrictions apply to recording even for the
purpose of personal enjoyment.
