Health and safety information
Always comply with the following precautions and usage tips to avoid dangerous situations and ensure peak performance of your camera.
Warning—situations that could cause injury to yourself or
others
Caution—situations that could cause damage to your
camera or other equipment
Note—notes, usage tips, or additional information
Do not use your camera near flammable or explosive
gases and liquids
Do not use your camera near fuels, combustibles, or flammable
chemicals. Do not store or carry flammable liquids, gases, or
explosive materials in the same compartment as the camera or its
accessories.
Keep your camera away from small children and pets
Keep your camera and all accessories out of the reach of small
children and animals. Small parts may cause choking or serious
injury if swallowed. Moving parts and accessories may present
physical dangers as well.
Safety warnings
Prevent damage to subjects’ eyesight
Do not use the flash in close proximity (closer than 1 m/3 ft) to
people or animals. Using the flash too close to your subject’s
eyes can cause temporary or permanent damage.
Handle and dispose of batteries and chargers with care
Use only Samsung-approved batteries and chargers.
t
Incompatible batteries and chargers can cause serious injuries
or damage to your camera.
Never dispose of batteries in a fire. Follow all local regulations
t
when disposing of used batteries.
Never place batteries or cameras on or in heating devices,
t
such as microwave ovens, stoves, or radiators. Batteries may
explode when overheated.
Handle and store your camera carefully and sensibly
Do not allow your camera to get wet—liquids can cause serious
t
damage. Do not handle your camera with wet hands. Water
damage to your camera can void your manufacturer’s warranty.

Health and safety information
Protect batteries, chargers, and memory cards from
damage
Avoid exposing batteries or memory cards to very cold or very
t
hot temperatures (below 0º C/32º F or above 40º C/104º F).
Extreme temperatures can reduce the charging capacity of your
batteries and can cause memory cards to malfunction.
Prevent batteries from making contact with metal objects, as
t
this can create a connection between the + and – terminals
of your battery and lead to temporary or permanent battery
damage.
Prevent memory cards from making contact with liquids, dirt, or
t
foreign substances. If dirty, wipe the memory card clean with a
soft cloth before inserting in your camera.
Turn off the camera when inserting or removing the memory
t
card.
Do not bend, drop, or subject memory cards to heavy impact
t
or pressure.
Do not use memory cards that have been formatted by other
t
cameras or by a computer. Reformat the memory card with
your camera.
Never use a damaged charger, battery, or memory card.
t
Do not expose the camera to direct sunlight or high
t
temperatures for an extended period of time. Prolonged
exposure to sunlight or extreme temperatures can cause
permanent damage to your camera’s internal components.
Avoid using or storing your camera in dusty, dirty, humid, or
t
poorly-ventilated areas to prevent damage to moving parts and
internal components.
Remove the batteries from your camera when storing it for an
t
extended period of time. Installed batteries may leak or corrode
over time and cause serious damage to your camera.
Protect your camera from sand and dirt when using it on
t
beaches or in other similar areas.
Protect your camera from impact, rough handling, and
t
excessive vibration to avoid serious damage.
Exercise caution when connecting cables or adapters and
t
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
t
compartments, slots, or access points. Damage due to
improper use may not be covered by your warranty.

Exercise caution when using the camera in humid
environments
When transferring the camera from a cold environment to a warm
and humid one, condensation can form on the delicate electronic
circuitry and memory card. In this situation, wait for at least 1 hour
until all moisture has evaporated before using the camera.
Check that the camera is operating properly before use
The manufacturer takes no responsibility for any loss of files or
damage that may result from camera malfunction or improper
use.
Use only Samsung-approved accessories
Using incompatible accessories may damage your camera,
cause injury, or void your warranty.
Protect your camera’s lens
Do not expose the lens to direct sunlight, as this may discolour
t
the image sensor or cause it to malfunction.
Protect your lens from fingerprints and scratches. Clean your
t
lens with a soft, clean, debris-free lens cloth.
Allow only qualified personnel to service your camera
Do not allow unqualified personnel to service the camera or
attempt to service the camera yourself. Any damage that results
from unqualified service is not covered by your warranty.
Ensure maximum battery and charger life
Overcharging batteries may shorten battery life. After charging is
t
finished, disconnect the cable from your camera.
Over time, unused batteries will discharge and must be
t
recharged before use.
Disconnect chargers from power sources when not in use.
t
Use batteries only for their intended purpose.
