Preventing Malfunctions
Avoid Strong Magnetic Fields
Never place the camera in close proximity to electric motors or other equipment generating strong
electromagnetic fields. Exposure to strong magnetic fields may cause malfunctions or corrupt image
Avoid Condensation Related Problems
Moving the equipment rapidly between hot and cold temperatures may cause condensation (water
droplets) to form on its external and internal surfaces. You can avoid this by placing the equipment in
an airtight, resealable plastic bag and letting it adjust to temperature changes slowly before removing it
from the bag.
If Condensation Forms Inside the Camera
Stop using the camera immediately if you detect condensation. Continued use may damage the
equipment. Remove the CF card and battery or power cord (if connected) from the camera and wait
until the moisture evaporates completely before resuming use.
Extended Storage
When not using the camera for extended periods of time, remove the battery from the camera or
battery charger and store the equipment in a safe place. Storing the camera for extended periods with
batteries installed will run down the battery and may damage the camera.
