batteries and how to prolong their life.  Incor-
rect use can shorten battery life or cause leak-
age, overheating, fi re, or explosion.
Li-ion Batteries
Li-ion Batteries
Read this section if your camera uses a 
rechargeable Li-ion battery.
The battery is not charged at shipment. 
Charge the battery before use.  Keep the bat-
tery in its case when not in use.
■ Notes on the Battery
The battery gradually loses its charge when 
not in use.  Charge the battery one or two 
days before use.
Battery life can be extended by turning the 
camera off  when not in use.
Battery capacity decreases at low tempera-
tures; a depleted battery may not function at 
when cold.  Keep a fully charged spare bat-
tery in a warm place and exchange as nec-
essary, or keep the battery in your pocket or 
other warm place and insert it in the camera 
only when shooting.  Do not place the bat-
tery in direct contact with hand warmers or 
other heating devices.
■  Charging the Battery
Charge the battery in the supplied battery 
charger.  Charging times will increase at am-
bient temperatures below +10 °C (+50 °F) or 
above +35 °C (+95 °F).  Do not attempt to 
charge the battery at temperatures above 
40 °C (+104 °F); at temperatures below 0 °C 
(+32 °F), the battery will not charge.
Do not attempt to recharge a fully charged 
battery.  The battery does not however need 
to be fully discharged before charging.
The battery may be warm to the touch imme-
diately after charging or use.  This is normal.
■ Battery Life

recharged about 300 times.  A noticeable de-
crease in the length of time the battery will 
hold a charge indicates that it has reached 
the end of its service life and should be re-
■ Storage

left unused for extended periods when fully 
charged.  Run the battery fl at before storing it.
If the camera will not be used for an extended 
period, remove the battery and store it in a 
dry place with an ambient temperature of 
from +15 °C to +25 °C (+59 °F to +77 °F).  Do 
not store in locations exposed to extremes of
