To Valued customers who use the Digital Camera VG-170 Important Notice

 
Dear Valued Customers,

Thank you for your  continued support  of Olympus, and we hope you have captured many great moments with our products.

It has come to our attention that there is a possibility that a part of the VG-170 body might emit a mild electric shock during usage. However, this only affects a small number of units. Due to this mild shock, you may experience slight numbness in your fingertips, but it is not strong enough to affect the user severely.

For your safety, we would like to offer you a complimentary inspection and repair.

Your patience and understanding of this matter is appreciated. We will do our utmost best to ensure the quality of our products for your use.
Olympus Corp.
