Caution, Warning, Safety precautions operation precautions – Nikon Compact-Sport-Sprint User Manual
Never look at the sun directly while using binoculars.
Doing so may seriously damage the eyes. (Fig. 1)
• Do not leave the binoculars in an unstable place. They may fall and cause injury.
• Do not look through the binoculars while walking. You may walk into something and get hurt.
• Do not swing the binoculars by their straps. They may hit someone and cause injury.
• The soft case, strap, and external materials utilized on binoculars and rubber eyecups may deteriorate due to
aging and stain clothes. To prevent this, check their condition before each use, and consult with the shop where
you bought them if such deterioration is found.
• If you use the rubber eyecups for a long period of time, you may suffer skin inflammation. If you develop any
symptoms, consult a doctor immediately.
• Be careful not to pinch your finger when adjusting interpupillary distance. Be particularly careful if you let small
children use the binoculars.
• Do not leave the polyethylene bag used for packaging within small children’s reach. Children may put it on their
mouths and suffocate.
• Be careful that small children do not inadvertently swallow the eyecup. If it does happen, consult a doctor
• Do not disassemble the binoculars. Repairs should only be performed by a trained engineer.
OPERATION AND CONTROLS
1. Do not open the right and left binocular tubes beyond their limits. Also be careful not to rotate the focusing ring
beyond their limits.
2. Avoid rain, water splashes, sand and mud.
3. Always protect binoculars from shock. If you cannot obtain a normal image after dropping or getting the
binoculars wet, take them immediately to the shop where you purchased them.
4. When exposed to sudden temperature changes, water condensation may occur on lens surfaces. In this case,
thoroughly dry the binoculars at room temperature.
5. Water condensation or mold may occur on lens surfaces because of high humidity. Therefore, store the binoculars
in a cool, dry place. After use on a rainy day or at night, thoroughly dry them at room temperature, then store in a
cool, dry place.
6. For lengthy storage, keep binoculars in a plastic bag or an airtight container with a desiccant. If this is not
possible, store in a clean, well-ventilated place, separate from the case, as they are easily affected by moisture.
7. Do not leave the binoculars in a car on a hot or sunny day, or near heat generating equipment. This may damage
or negatively affect them.
