Cleaning

Do not use alcohol, thinner, or other volatile chemicals.

Storage

Remove the batteries if the camera will not be used for an extended period. To 
prevent mold or mildew, take the camera out of storage at least once a month. 
Turn the camera on and release the shutter a few times before putting the 
camera away again. Do not store the camera in any of the following locations:

• Places that are poorly ventilated or subject to humidity of over 60%

• Exposed to temperatures above 50°C (122°F) or below –10°C (14°F)

• Next to equipment that produces strong electromagnetic fields, such as 

televisions or radios

Cleaning and Storage

Lens

Avoid touching glass parts with your fingers. Remove dust or lint with 
a blower (typically a small device with a rubber bulb attached to one 
end that is pumped to produce a stream of air out the other end). To 
remove fingerprints or other stains that cannot be removed with a 
blower, wipe the lens with a soft cloth, using a spiral motion that 
starts at the center of the lens and working toward the edges. If this 
fails, clean the lens using a cloth lightly dampened with commercial 
lens cleaner.

Monitor

Remove dust or lint with a blower. To remove fingerprints and other 
stains, clean the monitor with a soft, dry cloth, being careful not to 
apply pressure.

Body

Use a blower to remove dust, dirt, or sand, then wipe gently with a 
soft, dry cloth. After using the camera at the beach or other sandy or 
dusty environment, wipe off any sand, dust, or salt with a dry cloth 
lightly dampened with fresh water and dry thoroughly. Note that 
foreign matter inside the camera could cause damage not 
covered by the warranty.
