All measurements are performed in conformity with Camera and Imaging Products Association (CIPA) standards or guidelines.

1. Battery life does not reflect the use of SnapBridge 360/170 and may vary with the conditions of use, including temperature, the interval between shots, and the length of time that menus and images are displayed.

2. The camera can be used up to a water depth of about 20 m (65 ft) when the lens protectors are attached.

3. When the lens protectors or underwater lens protectors are attached.

4. Dropped from a height of 200 cm (6 ft 6 in.) onto a surface of 5 cm (2 in.) thick plywood (changes in appearance, such as paint peeling off and deformation of the drop shock portion and waterproof performance are not subject to the test). These tests do not guarantee that the camera will be free from damage or trouble under all conditions.
