*Although the G5WP-SS is a waterproof camera, you may not be able to take pictures if the glass in the housing fogs up due to condensation forming on the inside of the glass because of moisture left remaining in gaps between the housing and the camera or similar problems if the housing is used while the camera is still wet or not fully dry. If the camera has gotten wet, wipe off any moisture with a dry towel or the like and allow the camera to dry in a cool place out of direct sunlight for at least 24 hours before use.
