Care and Storage
- Note that if fingerprints, dirt, etc. get onto the lens, image quality may deteriorate.
- When dust or dirt does get on the lens, do not touch it directly with your fingers, and either use a blower (available in stores) to blow it off, or a soft cloth to gently dust it off.
- Wipe the lens particularly carefully after use at the beach or around chemicals.
- If the camera fails to work properly, consult the nearest service center.
- Never disassemble the camera by yourself, as this is dangerous.
- Do not get volatile substances, such as thinner, benzine, or pesticides on the camera. This may cause a change in quality, paint to peel, etc.
- If the camera exterior becomes dirty, wipe it clean using a dry soft cloth such as a glasses wiping cloth, or wipe it using a thoroughly wrung out wet cloth. Do not use solvents, as doing so may cause the external surface of the camera to corrode.

Places with high temperature, high humidity, or rapid changes in humidity or temperature

Places where strong magnetism is emitted (next to monitors, transformers, magnets, etc.)
