IMPORTANT
  • Before shooting 4K movies, format the card.
  • If you use a slow-writing card when shooting movies, the movie may not be recorded properly. Also, if you play back a movie on a card with a slow reading speed, the movie may not be played back properly.
  • When movies cannot be recorded normally, format the card and try again. If formatting the card does not resolve the problem, refer to the card manufacturer’s Web site.
  • The camera is not compatible with UHS-II SDHC/SDXC cards. (Compatible with UHS-I.) With a UHS-II SDHC/SDXC card, high-speed transfer via UHS-I may not be possible, depending on the card specification.
NOTE
  • If the card is new or was previously formatted by another camera or computer, format the card with this camera.
  • The camera does not come with a card for recording images/ movies. Please purchase it separately.
