Before You Begin
Use Only Nikon Brand Electronic Accessories
Nikon COOLPIX cameras are designed to the highest standards and include complex elec-
tronic circuitry. Only Nikon brand electronic accessories (including battery chargers, batteries,
AC adapters, and Speedlights) certified by Nikon specifically for use with this Nikon digital
camera are engineered and proven to operate within the operational and safety require-
ments of this electronic circuitry.
THE USE OF NON-NIKON ELECTRONIC ACCESSORIES COULD
DAMAGE THE CAMERA AND MAY VOID YOUR NIKON WAR-
RANTY. The use of third-party rechargeable Li-ion batteries not
bearing the Nikon holographic seal* could interfere with normal
operation of the camera or result in the batteries overheating, ig-
niting, rupturing, or leaking.
For more information about Nikon brand accessories, contact a local authorized Nikon deal-
* Holographic seal: Identifies this device as an authentic Nikon product.
Before Taking Important Pictures
Before taking pictures on important occasions (such as at weddings or before taking the
camera with you on a trip), take a test shot to ensure that the camera is functioning normally.
Nikon will not be held liable for damages or lost profits that may result from product mal-
Internal Memory and SD Memory Card
This camera uses both internal memory and an SD memory card for storing pictures. If you
insert a memory card into the camera, pictures will automatically be stored on the card in-
stead of in the internal memory. To store, view or delete pictures in the internal memory or
to format the internal memory, remove the memory card first.
