Exercise caution when connecting cables or adapters
•	
and installing batteries and memory cards. Forcing
the connectors, improperly connecting cables, or
improperly installing batteries and memory cards can
damage ports, connectors, and accessories.
Do not insert foreign objects into any of your camera’s
•	
compartments, slots, or access points. This type of
damage may not be covered by your warranty.
Protect batteries, chargers, and memory cards from
damage
Avoid exposing batteries or memory cards to very
•	
cold or very hot temperatures (below 0° C/32° F or
above 40° C/104° F). Extreme temperatures can
reduce the charging capacity of your batteries and
can cause memory cards to malfunction.
Prevent memory cards from making contact with
•	
liquids, dirt, or foreign substances. If dirty, wipe the
memory card clean with a soft cloth before inserting
in your camera.
Handle and dispose of batteries and chargers with
care
Use only Samsung-approved batteries and chargers.
•	
Incompatible batteries and chargers can cause serious
injuries or damage to your camera.
Never place batteries or cameras on or in heating
•	
devices, such as microwave ovens, stoves, or
radiators. Batteries may explode when overheated.
Cautions
Handle and store your camera carefully and sensibly
Do not allow your camera to get wet—liquids can
•	
cause serious damage. Do not handle your camera
with wet hands. Water damage to your camera can
void your manufacturer’s warranty.
Avoid using or storing your camera in dusty, dirty,
•	
humid, or poorly-ventilated areas to prevent damage
to moving parts and internal components.
