Study and familiarize yourself with the functions of your camera before using it. No compensation or guarantee is provided for unsatisfactory pictures or loss of profit, etc. Carry spare batteries when you use the camera in a cold environment, on a field trip, or when taking many pictures at one time. ENVIRONMENT Your camera is a precision instrument. Do not drop it or subject it to physical shock. This camera benefits from a dust and splash proof construction. Although this construction enables the lens to be used under light rain, it is not the same as being water proof. Please pay attention to prevent a large amount of water from splashing on the camera, especially when using it by a waterside. It is often impractical to repair the internal mechanism and electric components if damaged by water. Do not leave the camera in a dusty, hot, or highly humid environment for a long period of time. If the camera is moved from a cold place to a warm room, water droplets may appear on the camera. Please keep the camera in a bag until it is acclimatized to the ambient room temperature. 10 The camera will work within a temperature range between 0°C/32°F and +40°C/104°F and humidity less than 85% (no condensation). However, in cold temperatures below 0°C, the power performance of the battery is reduced. Please carry a spare battery in these circumstances, and keep the batteries warm. Static electricity or magnetic fields may affect the operation of the camera. If such exposure occurs, please remove the battery from the camera and re-insert it, to reset the camera's microprocessors. DURING PROLONGED USE Although there are cases where the surface of camera gets hot, this is not a malfunction. If you use the camera for an extended period of time, the camera may get hot and the warning mark ( ) will be displayed. If the camera gets too heat, a warning message will be displayed and the camera will turn off automatically. If the camera turns off, please leave it switched off for more than ten minutes to lower its temperature. Image quality may lower when the camera gets hot. If the warning mark ( ) is displayed, we recommend turning off the camera and wait until the temperature of the camera becomes lower. When you use a USB storage device, such as an SSD card, to shoot a movie, the USB storage may become hot and movie recording may stop. SD MEMORY CARDS (OPTIONAL) This product supports the following memory cards that comply with the SD standards. SD, SDHC, and SDXC memory cards In this instruction manual, these memory cards are referred to as the `Card' or `SD card'. This product is compatible with SDHC and SDXC memory cards based on the UHS-I or UHS-II standards. 11 For movie shooting, an SD card may not be available depending on the bit rate. For details on compatible media, refer to "BIT RATE AND COMPATIBLE MEDIA" (P.76). SD cards have a write protection switch, which prevents the card from being accidentally written to or formatted. Moving the switch to the `LOCK' position prevents accidental erasure of files. Do not leave the card in direct sunlight or near a heating device. Avoid storing cards in environments of high temperature and humidity or where static electricity or electromagnetic fields may be generated. For proper usage of the card, please refer to their instruction manuals. The "Delete" feature of the Camera and PC may not delete the data in the memory card completely. Some data might still remain. If you wish to remove all data from card securely, please use third party software. ABOUT THE LENSES This camera uses the L-Mount. Your camera can use interchangeable lenses for L-Mount. This camera has a 35mm full-frame image sensor. In order to take full advantage of the capability of the image sensor, it is recommended that L-Mount lenses are used for full size format. You can use lenses for APS-C format in DC Crop mode, which limits the recording area of the image sensor for APS-C size. Sigma MC-21 Mount Converter (optional) allows you to use Sigma SA mount interchangeable lenses or Sigma interchangeable lenses for Canon EF mount. Depending on the release date of the lens, updating the lens firmware may be required. It may also be necessary to update the camera firmware. Please check our website for the latest information about the corresponding lens. https://www.sigma-global.com/en/download/ 12 ELECTRONIC SHUTTER This product is not equipped with a mechanical shutter mechanism. It provides an electronic shutter that electronically controls the image sensor to adjust the exposure time. The electronic shutter enables the high-speed shutter speed and high-speed continuous shooting with no noise or vibration. However, the electronic shutter has disadvantages, so be sure to note the following points. Uneven exposure can easily occur under a flickering light source such as a fluorescent light, so use the slower shutter speed. The flash tuning speed is set to 1/30 sec. or less (1/15 sec. or less when the image quality is set to DNG and DNG + JPEG and the memory bit count is 14 bits). When shooting with the flash using manual exposure, set the shutter speed to 1/30 sec. or less (1/15 sec. or less). When shooting a fast-moving subject, distortion may occur. 13 DESCRIPTION OF THE PARTS 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 14 15 16 17 18 7 19 20 21 22 23 24 4 36 14 11 12 4 13 7 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 37 1 Lens Signal Contacts 20 LCD Monitor / Touch Panel 2 Microphone (Right) 21 Microphone / Cable Release Terminal 3 Front Dial 22 (View) Button 4 Position Index for Tripod Socket 23 Busy Lamp 5 Lens Mount Index / Lens Lock Pin 24 (Display) Button 6 Lens Lock Button 25 REC Button 7 Tripod / Strap Holder Sockets 26 REC Lamp 8 Battery / SD Card Cover 27 Shutter Button 9 DC Connector Cover 28 AEL Button 10 Battery / SD Card Cover Latch 29 (Quick Set) Button 11 Microphone (Left) 30 Tone Control Button 12 Lens Mount 31 Rear Dial 13 Image Sensor / Dust Protector 32 (OK) Button 14 Heatsink 33 Color Mode Button 15 Power Switch 34 (Menu) Button 16 CINE / STILL Switch 35 (Shooting Mode) / (Delete) Button 17 USB Terminal (Type C / Charge lamp USB 3.0) 36 Strap Holders 18 Focal Plane Mark 37 Hot Shoe Unit HU-11 19 HDMI Terminal (Type D 1.4)) / HU-11 Contacts (Version CAUTION Be careful not to touch the dust protector (image sensor protective glass)(13). 15 ABOUT REAR DIAL (31) The Rear Dial also serves as a direction button.
