Before using the camera under water
• Check contacts for the lids on the battery/memory card compartment and

strand of hair or sand will cause the entry of water into the camera.
• Check for any cracking, scratch, and other wearing on the waterproof pad
for the lids on the battery/memory card compartment and USB port.
21
• Properly close the lids for the battery/memory card compartment and USB
port until a clicking sound secures the positioning.
• Dropping the camera during its underwater use will cause the camera to
sink further. Please use a strap or other means to prevent it from falling.
Cleaning of the camera after its underwater use
• After using the camera underwater, on the sand, or in another environment
full of sand or dusts, wipe away sand, dust, or salt one hour later with a dry
cloth soaked with a little bit of water and then lay it to dry completely.
• If placed in a humid environment or with any other foreign object attached,
the camera might be damaged, decolored, corroded, generate foul smell, or
see its waterproof ability diminished.
The following steps are recommended for cleaning the camera if it will not be
used for a long period of time:
• Close the lid for the battery/memory card compartment and wash the
camera gently with clear water. Soak the camera for 10 minutes in a shallow
basin filled with clear water.

• Use a soft cloth to wipe away water drops and lay the camera dry at a cool
and well-ventilated place.
• Do not dry the camera with the hot air from a hair dryer.
• Do not use chemicals (such as vapor oil, thinner, alcohol, or detergents),
soap, or neutral detergents.
22
• The sound might be distorted if the opening of the speaker or microphone is
filled with water drops. Please wipe away water drops with a soft and dry
cloth.
• Do not puncture the opening of the speaker or microphone using a sharp
tool. Any damage on the inside of the camera will cause its waterproof
ability to diminish.
Notes on operating temperature, humidity, and condensation
• Functionality of the camera and durability of the battery will temporarily
drop when using the camera in an area with a colder climate.
• To prevent icing on the button and distortion on the recorded sound, wipe
away snow or water drops that are attached to the outside of the camera.
• With drastic changes in temperature, water drops will form on both inside
and outside of the camera. This phenomenon is called “condensation”,
which might be caused via the following circumstances:
– The camera is suddenly dipped into water under a low temperature
from a ground-based environment with a high temperature (such as on
the sand or a place with direct sun light).
– The camera is brought into the warm indoor from the cold outdoor.
– Opening or closing the lids for the battery/memory card compartment
and USB port in an environment with high humidity.
• To clear away condensation, open the lids for the battery/memory card slot
and USB port after turning off the camera at a place with a stable ambient
temperature (avoid any place with high temperature/humidity or any sandy
or dusty place). Remove the battery and memory card, and store the
camera with the lids open for the battery/memory card compartment and
USB port in order for the temperature on the camera to adjust to the
ambient temperature.
• If condensation cannot be cleared away, please contact the store where you
bought your camera or contact our maintenance and repair department.
