Safety Warnings - General Continuous shooting, Live View shooting, or movie shooting for a prolonged period may cause the camera to become hot. Although this is not a malfunction, holding the hot camera for prolonged periods may cause slight skin burns. Do not leave in excessive heat. The equipment may become hot and cause skin burns. Do not fire flash near a person’s eyes or at someone driving a car. Do not use equipment where there is flammable gas. This is to prevent an explosion or fire. Do not look at the sun or an extremely bright source through the camera or lens. Do not use paint thinner, benzene, or other organic solvents to clean the equipment. Doing so may cause fire or a health hazard. Do not disassemble or modify the equipment or if internal parts become exposed, do not touch the internal parts due to possibility of electric shock. If water or metal fragments enter inside the camera, promptly remove the battery pack and back-up battery to prevent fire and electrical shock.
Safety Warnings - Batteries To prevent fire, excessive heat, chemical leakage, and explosions, follow the safeguards below: Do not use any batteries, power sources, and accessories not specified in the instruction manual Do not short-circuit, disassemble, or modify the battery pack or back-up battery Do not expose the battery pack or back-up battery to fire or water Do not install the battery pack or back-up battery in reversed polarity Do not recharge the battery pack outside the allowable ambient temperature range of 0⁰C - 40⁰C (32 ⁰F ⁰F) Do not insert any foreign metallic objects into the electrical contacts of the camera, accessories, connecting cables, etc. Before storing the camera or accessory when not in use, remove the battery pack and disconnect the power plug If battery pack or back-up battery leaks, changes color or deforms, or emits smoke or fumes, remove it immediately. Be careful not to get burned in the process. Prevent any battery leakage from contacting your eyes, skin, and clothing. If excessive heat, smoke, or fume are emitted during battery pack recharging, immediately unplug the battery charger to stop recharging and prevent fire
Handling & Care - Camera Do not drop or subject the camera to physical shock. Camera is not waterproof. If camera is dropped in water, wipe off droplets with a dry cloth then contact your FSR as soon as possible. If camera is exposed to salty air, wipe with a slightly damp cloth. Never leave the camera near a strong magnetic field or emitted radio waves. Do not leave in excessive heat. Do not block the mirror operations with your finger or other item. Use a blower to blow away dust on lens, mirror, viewfinder, and focusing screen. Do not use cleaners containing organic solvents to clean the body or lens. Do not touch the electrical contacts with finger to prevent corrosion.
Handling & Care - Camera When bringing the camera in from cold temp to a warm room, first place the camera in a sealed plastic bag and let it adjust to the room temps, this will prevent condensation. If condensation occurs, do not use the camera. Remove the lens, card and battery from the camera until the condensation has evaporated. If the camera will not be used for an extended period, remove the battery and store camera in a cool, dry, well-ventilated location. While in storage, press the shutter button occasionally to verify the camera still works. Avoid storing the camera where corrosive materials are located. If the camera has been stored for a long period of time, test all functions prior to use. See FSR to obtain Operation Checklist and Preventative Maintenance Checklist.
Handling & Care LCD Panel and LCD Monitor The LCD monitor is over 99.99% effective pixels, so there may be a few dead pixels in the remaining 0.01% or less. Dead pixels displaying only black, red or etc., are not a malfunction. They do not affect the imagery recorded. If the LCD is left on for an extended period of time, screen burn-in may occur where you see only remnants of what was displayed. However, this is only temporary and will disappear if the camera is left unused for a few days. In low or high temps, the LCD monitor display may seem slow or look black; it will return to normal at room temperature. Cards To protect the cards, do not drop, bend, or wet the card. Do not subject it to excessive force, physical shock, or vibration. Store card in hard case when not in use. Do not touch the card’s electronic contacts with your finger or anything metal. Do not store or use the card near anything having a strong magnetic field such as televisions, video monitors, speakers, or magnets. If at all possible avoid places prone to static electricity. Do not store the card in hot, dusty, or humid locations. Lenses After detaching the lens from the camera, attach the lens caps and put down the lens with the rear end up to avoid scratching the lens surface and electrical contacts.
Battery Charger and Tips 1.Remove the protective cover provided with the battery. 2.Attach the battery to the charger. 3.Insert charger into the power outlet. 4.Recharging starts automatically and the lamp blinks orange. 5.The indicator light will turn green when fully charged. 6.After disconnecting the chargers power plug, do not touch the prongs for 3 sec. 7.After charging (if storing the battery) you can attach the battery cover so the battery shaped hole is aligned over the blue sticker on the battery to show it’s charged. Do not leave the battery in the camera for prolonged periods; a small amount of power current is released resulting in shorter battery life. Store the battery in the protective cover. 8.It the battery becomes exhausted quickly, the battery may have reached the end of its service life. *It takes approximately 2.5 hours to fully charge an exhausted battery at 73 degrees. It may take longer at lower temps, up to 4 hours.
