Close the battery compart- ment cover by pressing it down onto the batteries and sliding it in the opposite direction to the arrow on the cover. ● Pressing on the edge of the battery compartment cover will make it more difficult to close. ● The cover is locked in the closed position. Slide the battery compart- ment lock towards the icon. 7 6 30 Loading the batteries • CR-V3 lithium battery packs cannot be charged. • Do not attempt to remove the labels from CR-V3 lithium battery packs. Where the terminals are covered with a protective sticker (insulating cover), peel off that sticker only. • The performance of alkaline batteries varies greatly and is particularly poor at low temperatures. The use of lithium battery packs or NiMH batteries is recommended. • Do not use manganese batteries. Please read the notes on handling bat- teries. (P.8) • Soiling on the terminals inside the battery compartment will shorten the life of the batteries considerably. Take care not to touch the inside of the battery compartment when removing the batteries. • If the camera is left for 1 hour with the batteries removed, all the internal set- tings revert to the default settings. 7 If you are using AA-size batteries. 5 6
