NOTE *2 About motion picture recording / 6K PHOTO/4K PHOTO recording

NOTE - Use a card with SD Speed Class with "Class 4" or higher when recording motion pictures in [AVCHD] or [MP4(under 28Mbps)].

NOTE - Use a card with SD Speed Class with "UHS-I / UHS-II UHS Speed Class 3 (U3)" when recording motion pictures with [mov], [MP4] in [4K] or [6K PHOTO/4K PHOTO].

NOTE (SD speed class is the speed standard regarding continuous writing.)

NOTE - MP4 motion pictures with [MP4] in [4K]:

NOTE - When using an SDHC memory card: You can continue recording without interruption even if the file size exceeds 4 GB, but the motion picture file will be divided and recorded/played back separately.

NOTE - When using an SDXC memory card: You can continue recording without interruption even if the file size exceeds 96 GB or 3 hours 4 minutes in length, but the motion picture file will be divided and recorded/played back separately.

NOTE - MP4 motion pictures with [MP4] in [FHD]:

NOTE - You can continue recording without interruption even if the file size exceeds 4 GB or 30 minutes in length, but the motion picture file will be divided and recorded/played back separately.
