(Important) About the Waterproof/Dustproof and
Anti-shock Performance of the Camera
This does not guarantee no destruction, no malfunction, or waterproofing in all
¢1 This means that the camera can be used underwater for specified time in specified pressure in
accordance with the handling method established by Panasonic.
¢2 “MIL-STD 810F Method 516.5-Shock” is the test method standard of the U.S. Defense
Department, which specifies performing drop tests from a height of 122 cm (4 feet), at
26 orientations (8 corners, 12 ridges, 6 faces) using 5 sets of devices, and passing the
26 orientation drops within 5 devices. (If failure occurs during the test, a new set is used to pass
the drop orientation test within a total of 5 devices)
Panasonic’s test method is based on the above “MIL-STD 810F Method 516.5-Shock”. However,
the drop height was changed from 122 cm (4 feet) to 150 cm (5 feet) dropping onto 3 cm
(0.1 feet) thick plyboard. This drop test was passed.
(Disregarding appearance change such as loss of paint or distortion of the part where drop impact
is applied.)
