4 En Water resistance: The waterproof feature is warranted*1 to operate at depths up to 5m (16 feet) for up to one hour. The waterproof feature may be compromised if the camera is subject to substantial or excessive impact. Shock resistance: The anti-shock feature warrants*2 the operation of the camera against accidental impact incurred from everyday use of your digital compact camera. The anti-shock feature does not unconditionally warrant all defective operation or cosmetic damage. Cosmetic damage, such as scratches and dents, are not covered under the warranty. As with any electronic device, proper care and maintenance are required to preserve the integrity and operation of your camera. To maintain camera performance, please take your camera to the nearest Olympus Authorized Service Center to have it inspected after any major impact. In the event the camera is damaged as a result of negligence or misuse, the warranty will not cover costs associated with the service or repair of your camera. For additional information on our warranty, please visit to the Olympus website for your local area. Please observe the following care instructions for your camera. Before Use: • Check the camera for foreign material including dirt, dust or sand. • Be sure the battery compartment/card cover lock and connector cover lock are firmly closed. • Do not open the battery compartment/card cover and connector cover with wet hands, while under water, or in a damp or dusty environment (e.g. beach). After Use: • Be sure to wipe off any excess water or debris after using the camera under water. • After the camera is used under sea water, immerse the camera in a bucket containing fresh water for about 10 minutes (with the battery compartment/card cover and connector cover firmly closed). After that, dry the camera in a shade with good ventilation. • Water drops may be observed on the inner surface of the battery compartment/ card cover or connector cover after you open each cover. If any water drops are found, be sure to wipe them off before using the camera. Notes after use • Any foreign material may be adhered to the periphery of the lens cover, after you use the camera in an environment containing foreign material including dirt, dust or sand, or when the lens cover won't move smoothly. If you continue to use the camera in such a condition, the lens may be damaged or the lens cover may become stuck, causing a failure. To avoid such a failure, wash the camera using the following method. IMPORTANTINFORMATIONABOUTWATERANDSHOCKRESISTANTFEATURES d4338_basic_e.book Page 4 Tuesday, August 8, 2006 11:30 PM

After carrying out the steps 1 to 4, confirm that the lens cover moves smoothly. Storage and Maintenance • Do not leave the camera in an environment at high temperature (40°C or more) or at low temperature (0°C or less). Failure to do so may break down water resistance. • Do not use chemicals for cleaning, rust prevention, anti-fogging, repairing, etc. Failure to do so may break down water resistance. • Do not leave the camera in water for a long time. Failure to do so will cause damage to the camera’s appearance and/or deteriorate water resistance. In addition do not pour water over the camera directly from the water faucet. • In order to preserve the water resistant feature, as with any underwater housing, it is recommended that the waterproof packing (and seals) are replaced annually. For the Olympus distributors or service stations where the waterproof packing can be replaced, visit Olympus website for your local area. Closing Battery Compartment /Card cover and Connector cover Note: The included accessories (e.g. charger) do not offer shock or water resistance. *1 as determined by Olympus pressure testing equipment in accordance to IEC Standard Publication 529 IPX8 - This means that the camera can normally be used under water at a specified water pressure. *2 This anti-shock performance is confirmed by Olympus’ testing conditions in accordance with MIL-STD-810F, Method 516.5, Procedure IV (Transit Drop Test). For more details of Olympus’ testing conditions, please refer to the Olympus website for your local area.
