Do…

  2. Handle all moving parts of the camera with care.
  3. Turn off the camera before removing or disconnecting the power source or a cable, or removing the battery or memory card.
  4. Keep your camera dry and free from condensation.
  5. Store your camera correctly if it isn’t going to be used for a long time.

Don’t…

  1. Subject your camera to knocks, vibration, magnetic fields, smoke, water, steam, sand or chemicals.
  2. Store or use it in humid, dusty or dirty places.
  3. Subject it to extreme hot or cold temperatures.
  4. Place it in direct sunlight for prolonged times or in a car when it is hot.
