About the Waterproof/Dustproof
and Anti-shock Performance of
this unit
Waterproof/Dustproof Performance
This unit’s waterproof/dustproof rating complies with the
“IP68” rating. Provided the care and maintenance guidelines
described in this document are strictly followed, this unit can
operate underwater, to a depth not exceeding 10 m (33 feet) for
a time not exceeding 60 minutes. *1
Anti-shock Performance
This unit has cleared a test conducted by Panasonic, which
complies with MIL-STD 810F Method 516.5-Shock (a drop test
performed from a height of 1.5 m (5.0 feet) onto 3 cm (0.10 feet)
thick plywood when the LCD monitor was closed with the
screen facing inwards). *2

12 ridges, 6 faces) using 5 sets of devices, and passing the
26 orientation drops within 5 devices. (If failure occurs during the
test, a new set is used to pass the drop orientation test within a total
of 5 devices.)
Panasonic’s test method is based on the above “MIL-STD 810F
Method 516.5-Shock”. However, the drop height was changed from
122 cm (4.0 feet) to 150 cm (5.0 feet) dropping onto 3 cm (0.10 feet)
thick plyboard. This drop test was passed.
(Disregarding appearance change such as loss of paint or distortion
of the part where drop impact is applied.)
∫ Handling this unit
≥
The waterproof performance may be degraded due to the strong water
pressure when this unit is used deeper than 10 m (33 feet) underwater.
/
The waterproof performance may be degraded due to the strong water
pressure when this unit is used deeper than 5 m (16 feet) underwater.
≥ When this unit is splashed with detergent, soap, hot spring, bath
additive, sun oil, sun screen, chemical, etc., wipe it off immediately.
≥ Waterproof function of this unit is for sea water and fresh water only.
≥ Any malfunction caused by customer misuse, or mishandling will not
be covered by the warranty.
≥ The inside of this unit is not waterproof. Water leakage will cause malfunction.
≥ Supplied accessories such as battery pack etc. are not waterproof.
(excluding handstrap)
≥ Supplied accessories such as battery, etc., are not dustproof or
anti-shock performance.
≥ Cards are not waterproof. Do not handle with a wet hand. Also, do not
insert wet card into this unit.
≥ Do not leave this unit for a long period of time in places where
temperature is very low (at ski resorts or at high altitude etc.) or very
high [above 35 oC (95 oF)], inside a car under strong sunlight, close to a
heater, on the beach, etc. Waterproof performance may be degraded.
Waterproofing is not guaranteed if the unit is subject to an impact as
a result of being hit or dropped etc. If an impact to this unit occurs, it
should be inspected (subject to a fee) by a Panasonic’s Service
Center to verify that the waterproofing is still effective.

≥ Wipe off any sand grains or dust on the speaker or microphones. Do
not use a needle or other sharp object. (Waterproofing performance
may be adversely affected)
≥ Foreign objects may adhere to the inner side of the rear door
(around the rubber seal or connecting terminals) when the rear
door is opened or closed in places with sand or dust etc. This
may result in the impairment of the waterproof performance if the
rear door is closed with foreign objects adhered. Be extremely
careful since it may result in malfunction etc.
≥ If foreign objects are present on the inner side of the rear door,
wipe them off with a lint-free cloth.
≥ If any liquid such as water droplets has adhered to this unit or inner
side of the rear door, wipe off with a soft dry cloth. Do not open or
close the rear door near the water, when underwater, using wet
hands, or when this unit is wet. It may cause water leakage.
∫ When inner side of the lens is fogged (condensation)
It is not a malfunction or failure of this unit. It may be caused by the
environment in which this unit is used.
≥ Be careful of condensation since it causes lens stains, fungus and unit
malfunction.
What to do when inner side of the lens is fogged
≥ Turn off the unit and open the rear door in a place with constant
ambient temperature, away from high temperatures, humidity, sand
and dust. The fog will disappear naturally in about 2 hours with the rear
door open when the temperature of this unit gets close to the ambient
temperature.
≥ Contact Panasonic’s Service Center if the fogging does not disappear.
Conditions in which inner side of the lens may be fogged
Condensation may occur and the inner side of the lens may be fogged
when this unit is used in areas that undergo a significant change in
temperature or in high humidity, such as the following:
≥ When this unit is used underwater suddenly after being on a hot
beach etc.
≥ When this unit is moved to a warm area from a cold area, such as
at a ski resort or at high altitude
≥ When the rear door is opened in a high-humidity environment

high altitude, performance of the LCD monitor may temporarily drop
immediately after turning the power on, e.g. the picture on the LCD
monitor being slightly darker than usual or ghost images appearing. In
cold environments, keep the unit warm during use by keeping it inside
your cold-weather gear or clothes. The performance will resume as
normal when the internal temperature rises.
≥ If the unit is used in cold places such as ski resorts or places at high
altitude with snow or water droplets adhered to the unit, some parts of
the unit may become hard to move or the sound may become dim with
snow or water droplets freezing in the gap of the zoom button, the
power button, speakers, and microphone. This is not a malfunction.
≥
If the Wi-Fi®
function is used in cold places such as ski resorts or
places at high altitude, playback may not be performed correctly.
