    ∫ For the purposes of these
    operating instructions

    ∫ About Condensation (When
    the lens or the LCD monitor is
    fogged up)
    Condensation occurs when there is a change in
    temperature or humidity, such as when the unit
    is taken from outside or a cold room to a warm
    room. Please be careful, as it may cause the
    lens or LCD monitor to become soiled, moldy,
    or damaged.
    When taking the unit to a place which has a
    different temperature, if the unit is accustomed
    to the room temperature of the destination for
    about one hour, condensation can be
    prevented. (When the difference in temperature
    is severe, place the unit in a plastic bag or the
    like, remove air from the bag, and seal the bag.)
    When condensation has occurred, remove the
    battery and/or the AC adapter and leave the
    unit like that for about one hour. When the unit
    becomes accustomed to the surrounding
    temperature, fogginess will disappear naturally.

    ∫ Cards that you can use with
    this unit

    by other companies and certified by Panasonic. Panasonic cannot in any way guarantee
    the quality, performance or safety of batteries which have been manufactured by other
    companies and are not genuine Panasonic products.
    It has been found that counterfeit battery packs which look very similar to the genuine
    product are made available to purchase in some markets. Some of these battery packs
    are not adequately protected with internal protection to meet the requirements of
    appropriate safety standards. There is a possibility that these battery packs may lead to
    fire or explosion. Please be advised that we are not liable for any accident or failure
    occurring as a result of use of a counterfeit battery pack. To ensure that safe products are
    used we would recommend that a genuine Panasonic battery pack is used.

    Inserting/removing the battery
    ≥ Press the power button to turn off the unit. (l 18)

    Install the battery by inserting it in the direction shown in the figure.

    Removing the battery
    Be sure to hold down the power button until
    the status indicator goes off. Then remove the
    battery while supporting the unit to prevent it
    from dropping.
    Move the battery release lever in the
    direction indicated by the arrow and
    remove the battery when unlocked.
