When your Ricoh camera is not being used, we recommend keeping it in the included sleeve, which is designed to help protect the lens from scratches and smudges. If fingerprints or dust get on the lens, the picture quality will suffer.
Before storing your camera, always make sure it is powered off. You should avoid storing your camera in high-temperature, high-humidity environments, or any locations where there are rapid changes in temperature or humidity levels. Also avoid storing your camera in areas where there is significant vibration or strong magnetism is emitted (e.g. near monitors, transformers, magnets, etc.).
