<Important> Notes About Shockproof, Waterproof, and Dustproof
Performance and Condensation
•The shockproof, waterproof, and dustproof performance described here do not
guarantee that the camera will remain completely waterproof or free from damage
and trouble under all conditions.
•Do not subject the camera to excessive shock, vibration or pressure by dropping it,
hitting it, or placing a heavy object on it. Failure to observe this precaution could
deform the camera, cause water to seep inside, or damage the airtight seals,
resulting in camera malfunction.
•Your Nikon warrantee may not cover troubles caused by water seeping inside the
camera due to improper handling of the camera.
Notes About Shockproof Performance
This camera has passed Nikon’s in-house test (drop test from a height of 200 cm (6 ft 6
in.) on a 5 cm (2 in.) thick plywood panel) compliant with the MIL-STD 810F Method
Changes in appearance, such as paint peeling off and deformation of the camera, are
not measured in Nikon’s in-house test.
1U.S. Department of Defense test method standard.
This drop test drops 5 cameras in 26 directions (8 edges, 12 corners, and 6 faces) from a
height of 122 cm (4 ft) to make sure that one to five cameras pass the test (if any defect is
detected during the test, another five cameras are tested to make sure that the test
criteria are satisfied for one to five cameras).
2When the lens protectors or underwater lens protectors are attached.
Notes About Waterproof and Dustproof Performance
The camera is rated equivalent to JIS/IEC waterproof class 8 (IPX8) and JIS/IEC
dustproof class 6 (IP6X) and can shoot images underwater at a depth of 10 m (33 ft)
for up to 60 minutes.*
* This rating indicates that the camera has been designed to withstand the specified water
pressure for the specified period of time when the camera is used according to the
methods defined by Nikon.
- The waterproof performance of this camera was tested in fresh water (swimming
pools, rivers, and lakes) and salt water only.
- The inner portion of this camera is not waterproof. Water seeping inside the camera
could cause the components to rust, resulting in high repair costs or irreparable damage.
BPrecautions When Cleaning
•Do not puncture the microphone or speaker openings with a sharp implement. If the
inside of the camera is damaged, the waterproof performance will deteriorate.
•Do not use soap, neutral detergents, or chemicals such as benzene for cleaning.
