Precautions
USE & LOCATION
≥ TO AVOID SHOCK HAZARD … Your camera
and power supply should not be exposed to
rain or moisture. Do not connect the power
supply or operate your camera if it gets wet.
Your camera has been designed for outdoor
use, however it is not designed to sustain
direct exposure to water, rain, sleet, snow,
sand, dust, or a direct splashing from a pool or
even a cup of coffee. This action could
permanently damage the internal parts of your
camera. Do not attempt to disassemble this
unit. There are no user serviceable parts
inside. Unplug your camera from the power
supply before cleaning.
≥ AS WITH ANY SMALL OBJECT, SD CARDS
CAN BE SWALLOWED BY YOUNG
CHILDREN. DO NOT ALLOW CHILDREN TO
HANDLE THE SD CARD.
≥ DO NOT AIM YOUR CAMERA AT THE SUN
OR OTHER BRIGHT OBJECTS
≥ DO NOT LEAVE THE CAMERA WITH THE
EVF AIMED DIRECTLY AT THE SUN AS
THIS MAY CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE
INTERNAL PARTS OF THE EVF
≥ DO NOT EXPOSE YOUR CAMERA TO
EXTENDED HIGH TEMPERATURE … Such
as, in direct sunlight, inside a closed car, next
to a heater, etc… This action could
permanently damage the internal parts of your
camera.
≥ AVOID SUDDEN CHANGES IN
TEMPERATURE … If the unit is suddenly
moved from a cold place to a warm place,
moisture may form on the SD card and inside
the unit.
≥ DO NOT LEAVE YOUR CAMERA OR THE
POWER SUPPLY TURNED ON WHEN NOT
IN USE.
≥ STORAGE OF YOUR CAMERA … Store and
handle your camera in a manner that will not
subject it to unnecessary movement (avoid

damaged by improper handling or storage.
CARE
≥ TO CLEAN YOUR CAMERA … Do not use
strong or abrasive detergents when cleaning
your camera body.
≥ TO PROTECT THE LENS … Do not touch the
surface of the lens with your hand. Use a
commercial camera lens solution and lens
paper when cleaning the lens. Improper
cleaning can scratch the lens coating.

not adequately protected with internal protection to meet the requirements of appropriate
safety standards. There is a possibility that these battery packs may lead to fire or explosion.
Please be advised that we are not liable for any accident or failure occurring as a result of use
of a counterfeit battery pack. To ensure that safe products are used we would recommend
that a genuine Panasonic battery pack is used.
