2 Information for Your Safety IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS When using your photographic equipment, basic safety precautions should always be followed, including the following: • Read and understand all instructions before using. • Close supervision is necessary when any flash is used by or near children. Do not leave flash unattended while in use. • Care must be taken as burns can occur from touching hot parts. • Do not operate if the flash has been dropped or damaged - until it has been examined by qualified service personnel. • Let flash cool completely before putting away. • To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not immerse this flash in water or other liquids. • To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not disassemble this flash, but take it to qualified service personnel when service or repair work is required. Incorrect reassembly can cause electric shock when the flash is used subsequently. • The use of an accessory attachment not recommended by the manufacturer may cause a risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS The following importer description applies to products imported into the EU directly by OLYMPUS EUROPA SE & Co. KG only. OLYMPUS EUROPA SE & Co.
