Temperature Warnings
  • If the camera temperature becomes elevated, a temperature warning and count-down timer will be displayed. When the timer reaches zero, the shooting display will turn off.

  • The temperature at which the count-down timer starts can be selected from [Standard] and [High] using [Auto temperature cutout] in the setup menu.

  • The timer turns red when the thirty second mark is reached. In some cases, the timer may be displayed immediately after the camera is turned on.

High-Temperature Warnings

Increases in the camera’s internal temperature or the temperature of memory cards may be accompanied by high-temperature warnings in the shooting display. Wait for the camera to cool and the warnings to clear from the display before handling the camera, battery, or memory cards.

No Memory Card Inserted

If no memory card is inserted, a “no memory card” indicator will appear in the shooting display and [–E–] will appear in both the control panel and the shooting display.
