Caring for the Camera

To ensure continued enjoyment of the product, observe the following precautions.

Storage and Use

If the camera will not be used for an extended pe- riod, remove the battery and memory card. Do not store or use the camera in locations that are:

exposed to rain, steam, or smoke

very humid or extremely dusty

exposed to direct sunlight or very high tempera- tures, such as in a closed vehicle on a sunny day

extremely cold

subject to strong vibration

exposed to strong magnetic fi elds, such as near a broadcasting antenna, power line, radar emit- ter, motor, transformer, or magnet

in contact with volatile chemicals such as pesti- cides

next to rubber or vinyl products

Water and Sand

Exposure to water and sand can also damage the camera and its internal circuitry and mechanisms. When using the camera at the beach or seaside, avoid exposing the camera to water or sand. Do not place the camera on a wet surface.


Sudden increases in temperature, such as occur when entering a heated building on a cold day, can cause condensation inside the camera. If this occurs, turn the camera off and wait an hour before turning it on again. If condensation forms on the memory card, remove the card and wait for the condensation to dissipate.


Use a blower to remove dust from the lens and monitor, then gently wipe with a soft, dry cloth. Any remaining stains can be removed by wiping gently with a piece of FUJIFILM lens-cleaning paper to which a small amount of lens-cleaning fluid has been applied. Care should be taken to avoid scratching the lens or monitor. The camera body can be cleaned with a soft, dry cloth. Do not use alcohol, thinner, or other volatile chemicals.


Keep the camera in your carry-on baggage. Checked baggage may suffer violent shocks that could damage the camera.
