    Safety Tips For Your GC3

    -To charge your GC3, use the power adapter that came with the device. Using any other power adapter or charger may cause damage to the device and may cause fire or injury.

    -DO NOT disassemble, change, or attempt to repair the GC3. This could result in electric shock and will void the manufacturer’s warranty.

    -DO NOT use the GC3 in environments where high humidity, smoke, or dust is present.

    -To avoid possible injury, DO NOT look directly into the GC3 when it is turned on.

    -If foreign objects or water enter the GC3, disconnect the device from external power and turn the power off. Continued use in this state can cause fire or electric shock.

    -The GC3 has been designed to withstand ball impact. However, if the device enclosure or LCD display has been damaged due to a ball impact or for any other reason, turn power off and discontinue use.

    -The GC3 uses three digital cameras that are precisely calibrated. Do not drop or subject the device to any impacts.

    -After use, always store the GC3 in a safe, dry, and dust-free environment
