Care of your camera
I) Do not leave the camera in a very hot environment, such as under the window of a car, or in the glove compartment or trunk. Excess heat or humidity may cause serious damage to the camera and changes in film color or damage to film emulsion and surface.
2) Avoid sudden temperature changes (bringing camera from outdoor cold to very warm indoor). These can cause moisture condensation inside the camera or lens, resulting in clouding of lens or rusting of metal parts.
3) Do not leave the camera near or on electrical appliances such as a TV or refrigerator.
4) Do not clean the camera body with alcohol, thinner or any other organic solvent. If it is stained, wipe it with a piece of dry cloth.
5) If water has dripped onto the camera or if the camera has been exposed to a sea breeze, wipe it well with a dry cloth.
6) Do not place camera with film inside in cabinets of furniture treated with formal in-containing substances, or near naphtha moth repellent. (These will affect color film quality.)
7) Avoid exposing camera to mud or sand. These can cause serious damage to moving parts of the camera.
