Precautions  
The Cleaning Cloth

into the camera.  
We recommend charging the battery pack in an ambient temperature of between  
1
0 °C and 30 °C (50 °F and 86 °F) to efficiently charge the battery pack.  
On the functions available with the camera  
Connect the battery charger to the nearest wall outlet (wall socket).  
Attaching/removing the eyepiece cup  
It is recommended that you attach the eyepiece cup when you intend to use the  
viewfinder.  
You may feel uncomfortable symptoms such as eyestrain, nausea, or a tired  
feeling while watching 3D images recorded with the camera on 3D compatible  
monitors. When you watch 3D images, we recommend that you take a break at  
regular time intervals. Since the need for or frequency of break times varies  
between individuals, please set your own standards. If you feel sick, stop  
watching 3D images, and consult a doctor as needed. Also, refer to the  
operating instructions of the connected device or the software used with the  
camera. A child's vision is always vulnerable (especially for children under six  
years of age). Before allowing them to watch 3D images, please consult with  
an expert, such as a pediatric or ophthalmic doctor. Make sure your children  
follow the precautions above.
