9 1 Continued on next page Read this first For safe use of your camera Various symbols are used to warn of hazards to yourself and others and prevent damage to property through misuse of the camera. The symbols and their meanings are explained below. Precautions when handling the camera Danger Do not use in the presence of flammable or explosive gas. Do not use the camera if there is the possibility of the presence of such gases in the air as this could result in fire or explosion. Do not attempt to disassemble or modify the camera. Such action could lead to electric shock or injury. Warning Do not fire the flash close to your subject’s eyes (particularly in the case of young children). Using the flash at close range could cause visual impairment. Keep out of the reach of children. Care should be taken to prevent the following accidents. • Strangulation caused by wrapping the strap round the neck. • Swallowing of small items such as the card. If this happens, seek medical attention immediately. • Visual impairment caused by the flash being fired at close range. • Injury caused by the camera’s operating parts. Do not look at the sun or strong light through the viewfinder. This could cause visual impairment. Do not use or store the camera for a long time in an environment where there is a lot of dust, dampness, smoke or steam. This could result in fire or electric shock. Do not cover the flash with your fingers when using the flash. Touching the flash during firing or after successive firing could result in burns. Do not let any water or other foreign object get inside the camera. Should the camera be dropped in water or water get into the internal parts, it could result in fire or electric shock. Remove the battery immediately and contact your nearest dealer or Olympus service center. Caution Should you notice smoke or an unusual smell or noise, stop using the camera immediately, remove the battery taking care to avoid burns, and contact your nearest dealer or Olympus service center. Continued operation could result in fire or burns. (Remove the battery outdoors, away from anything combustible, and avoid touching it with your bare hands.) Danger This symbol indicates that failure to observe the instructions will likely result in serious injury or possibly even death. Warning This symbol indicates that failure to observe the instructions may result in serious injury or possibly even death. Caution This symbol indicates that failure to observe the instructions may result in injury or damage to property.

For safe use of your camera 10 1 Read this first Be careful with the strap when carrying the camera as it can easily catch on stray objects, causing injury or damage. Do not leave the camera in places of high temperature. Avoid touching the battery with your bare hands when replacing it, as it may cause burns. Use only the specified AC adapter. Use of an unauthorized adapter may result in damage or malfunction of the camera or power source, leading to accidents. Olympus is not responsible for any damages arising from use of an unauthorized adapter. Avoid touching the metal parts on the outside of the camera for long periods of time. The camera becomes hot during continued use and prolonged contact with the metal parts may result in low temperature burns. When exposed to low temperature, the temperature of the camera exterior will also drop. This may cause injury by the skin adhering to the camera. To avoid low temperature burns or injury, wear gloves when handling the camera. Conditions for use of the camera This camera contains precision electronic parts. Avoid using or leaving the camera for long periods of time in the following places as this could result in failure or malfunction. • Places of high temperature and high humidity or where the temperature and humidity fluctuate greatly, such as in direct sunlight, on the beach in summer, in a car with the windows closed, or next to air conditioning equipment or a humidifier • Places where there is a lot of sand, dust or dirt • Near fire • Near water • Places that are subject to considerable vibration Avoid dropping or hitting the camera or subjecting it to severe vibration or impact. Do not take pictures or leave the camera with the lens aimed directly at the sun. If the camera is subjected to a sudden temperature change, for example by bringing it from a cold place into a warm room, condensation may form on the inside. Place the camera in a plastic bag until the temperature difference has subsided. If the camera is left unused for a long period of time, mold may form, causing failure or malfunction. We recommend that you check that the camera is still working properly before using it. Precautions regarding the monitor Do not apply excessive pressure to the monitor as this may cause smears, prevent pictures from being played back properly or damage the monitor. Should the monitor break, avoid getting any of the liquid crystal in your mouth. If it gets on your hands or feet or on your clothing, wash it off immediately with soap and water. Lines, like strips of light, may appear at the top or bottom of the monitor, but this is not a malfunction. When photographing an oblique subject, the subject may appear on the monitor with ragged edges, but this is not a malfunction. The ragged edges will disappear when the picture is played back. In general, the lower the temperature, the longer it takes the monitor to turn on. Pictures may also appear temporarily discolored. Keep the camera warm when taking pictures in a cold region. Performance of the monitor may deteriorate in low temperatures, but will be restored when the camera is returned to normal temperatures.

For safe use of your camera 11 1 Continued on next page Read this first The latest high precision technology has gone into the making of the camera’s monitor, but there are some pixels which are permanently lit or which do not light at all. These pixels do not affect the recorded picture. Also, depending on the angle at which the monitor is viewed, the colors and brightness may appear uneven, but this is due to the structure of the monitor and is not a malfunction. Precautions for handling the charger Danger The charger should not be used where it may come in contact with water and it should never be connected or disconnected with wet hands. Do not cover the charger with anything such as a cloth or blanket when in use as this may cause overheating, resulting in fire. Do not attempt to disassemble or modify the charger. Such action could lead to electric shock or injury. Use the charger at the specified voltage. Use at any other voltage could result in fire, explosion, emission of smoke, overheating, electric shock or burns. Warning Prolonged contact with the charger during use could result in low temperature burns. Do not damage the AC cable for the charger by pulling it and do not attempt to extend it. Always disconnect the cable by removing the plug and not by pulling the cable. Discontinue use of the charger immediately in the event of the following and contact your nearest dealer or Olympus service center. • If the plug or cable is hot, there is a smell of burning, or smoke is emitted. • If the cable is damaged or ruptured or the plug connection is faulty. Caution Do not charge the battery continuously for over 24 hours. If the battery is not fully charged when the charging time has elapsed, discontinue charging. Before cleaning the charger, unplug the AC cable from the wall outlet. Failure to do so could result in electric shock or injury. Precautions when handling the battery Danger Keep the battery out of the reach of children. Do not expose the battery to fire or excessive heat as this could result in fire or explosion. Do not use or leave the battery in places of high temperature such as in strong sunlight, inside a car under a blazing sun or in front of a heater as this could result in fire or explosion. Do not attempt to directly solder the battery, change its shape, modify it or disassemble it as this could damage the terminal safety valve or cause the battery to leak.

For safe use of your camera 12 1 Read this first Do not bring the plus or minus terminals into contact with anything metal. Do not transport or store the battery with metal objects such as necklaces or hairpins. Should battery fluid get in your eyes, wash your eyes immediately with clean water and do not rub them. Seek medical attention immediately as blindness could result. Warning Do not expose the battery to water or immerse it in water or in the sea. Do not expose the battery to strong impacts or damage. Discontinue use immediately should you notice anything unusual such as leakage, discoloration or deformation. If battery fluid gets on your skin or clothing, wash immediately in clean water as the fluid could cause harm. Caution The battery is exclusively for use in Olympus digital cameras. Do not use in any other equipment. Dirt on the plus or minus terminals may cause contact failure. Wipe with a dry cloth. The battery becomes hot after prolonged use of the camera. Do not attempt to remove it immediately as this could result in burns. In general, as the temperature falls, battery performance also temporarily deteriorates. When taking pictures in cold regions, keep the camera warm by putting it inside your coat or clothing. Performance of the battery may deteriorate in low temperatures, but will be restored when the camera is returned to normal temperatures. Repeated recharging leads to gradual deterioration in the performance of the battery. When the working time of the battery starts getting shorter even though it has been charged for the specified length of time, the battery can be regarded as having reached the end of its serviceable life. When this happens, replace it with a new battery. Used batteries are a valuable resource. Cover the plus and minus terminals with tape and take the battery to an electrical shop for recycling. Precautions for handling the picture card The picture card is a precision electronic device. Do not bend it or subject it to impact and keep it away from static electricity. The data stored on the picture card is saved in a nonvolatile semiconductor memory, but it can be accidentally destroyed. Do not expose the picture card to water or leave it where there is a lot of dust. Avoid using or storing the card in places of high temperature and high humidity. Avoid using near heat-generating or combustible materials. Fingerprints or dirt on the picture card contacts may prevent correct reading/writing of data. Wipe the contacts gently with a soft dry cloth. The picture card is a consumable item. After long use, writing to the picture card and erasing of data no longer becomes possible. When this happens, replace it with a new card. Olympus is not responsible for any damage to data saved in other media or loss of data stored on the card.
