Quick maintenance

Clean the outer body, clean the outside of lenses and filters, coat electric contacts, etc. Quick maintenance costs 1,100 yen (including tax) for each camera and requires at least 10 minutes.

LCD glass coating

Uses the same level of coating used on airplanes and bullet trains. By protecting the camera's LCD screen, it makes it more resistant to scratches and scuffs.
