Water proof, dust proof and shockproof function

How is the performance of waterproof / dustproof / shockproof?

This camera is provided with a waterproof / dustproof design complying with JIS/IEC waterproof grade 8 and JIS/IEC dustproof grade 6 (equivalent to IP68).
The camera satisfies the RICOH drop test (2.1m height onto a 5cm thick plywood surface) complying with MIL-Standard 810F Method 516.5-Shock testing.
The camera satisfies the RICOH test for the waterproof, dustproof, and shockproof performance, but this does not guarantee it will remain free of trouble or damages.
• Waterproof performance is not guaranteed if the camera is exposed to impact such as being dropped or hit.
Are there any precautions that should be observed before using the camera in the water?

Before using the camera in the water, please pay attention the following points.
• Make sure that there are no cracks or scratches on the rubber seal of the battery/card and terminal covers.
• Make sure there are no foreign objects (dust, sand, hair, lint or liquid) on the rubber seals or the surface they contact before closing the battery/ card and terminal covers. Wipe off any foreign objects with a clean lint-free cloth.

• Close the battery/card and terminal covers properly until they click. Otherwise water may get in and damage the camera.

• Avoid opening the battery/card and terminal covers when near the waterside or with wet hand.
• Wait until the camera is completely dry before changing the battery or the SD Memory Card.
• The camera will sink if dropped in water, so be sure to attach the strap and slip the strap over your wrist when using the camera in or near water.
• To enhance the waterproof performance of the camera, the front of the lens is protected by glass. As any dirt or water on the glass will affect the quality of pictures taken, the glass should always be kept clean.
Are there any precautions that should be observed when using the camera in the water?

When using the camera in the water, please pay attention the following points
• Do not use the camera deeper than 20 meters underwater. Do not use the camera underwater for more than 120 minutes consecutively.
• Do not open the battery/card and terminal covers underwater.
• Do not use in hot water or in a hot spring.
• Do not apply excessive force to the camera, for example diving into water with it. Doing so may compromise the waterproof performance of the camera or cause the covers to open.
• Leaving the camera on the sand at the beach may cause the camera to exceed its operating temperature or cause the speaker or microphone to become blocked with sand.
• Avoid subjecting the camera to substantial vibrations, shocks, or pressure as this may cause a loss in waterproof performance. If the camera is subjected to substantial vibrations, shocks or pressure, take your camera to your nearest RICOH Service Center and have it checked.
• Avoid getting sunscreen or sun oil on the camera as it may cause discoloration of the surface. If any oil gets on the camera, wash it off immediately with warm water.
• Sudden and extreme changes in temperature may cause condensation to form in and on the camera. Keep the camera in a bag or case to reduce the difference in temperature.
Are there any precautions that should be observed after using the camera in the water?

After using the camera in the water, please pay attention the following points
• Do not open the battery/card cover or terminal cover if the camera is wet. Wipe off any water with a clean lint-free cloth.
• The inside surface of the covers may get wet when they are opened. Wipe off the any water that is on the cover.
• Wiping off the camera while there is sand or dust on it may scratch the surface of the camera. Make sure that the battery/card cover, and terminal cover are firmly closed before washing the camera in tap water. After washing the camera, dry it with a soft cloth.
• Wipe off any dirt or sand on the waterproof packing or the packing contact surface. The camera's waterproof performance may be compromised by loose packing or cracks or dents in the packing or packing contact surface. If there is any such damage, contact your nearest RICOH Service Center.
• If the camera is very dirty or after it has been used in the sea, make sure that it is turned off and the battery/card and terminal covers are firmly closed before rinsing it under running tap water or leaving it in a bowl of clean water for a short time (2 or 3 minutes)

• Avoid cleaning with agents such as soapy water, mild detergents, or alcohol as this may compromise the waterproof performance of the camera.
• To maintain the waterproof performance of the camera, you are recommended to change the waterproof packing once a year. Contact your nearest RICOH Service Center regarding changing the packing. (A charge will be made)
• The camera's accessories are not waterproof.
Is there waterproof case that can be used in deeper under water?
