Note

  • (*¹) About motion picture recording
    - Use a card with SD Speed Class with "Class 4" or higher when recording motion pictures in [MP4(under 28Mbps)].
    - Use a card with SD Speed Class with "UHS-I / UHS-II UHS Speed Class 3 (U3)" when recording motion pictures with [MP4] in [4K] or [MOV].
    (SD speed class is the speed standard regarding continuous writing.)
    - Video Speed Class 60 or higher is required for ALL-Intra 400Mbps recording. Use of SD Memory Card with Video Speed Class 60 or higher is recommended for C4K/4K ALL-Intra video recording.
    - MP4 motion pictures with [MP4] in [4K]:
    - 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.
    - 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.
    - MP4 motion pictures with [MP4] in [FHD]:
    - 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.
    - 4:2:2 10-bit recording is a recording mode for film production and the video needs to be processed on PC.
    The original video cannot be played on standard TV, Blu-ray Disc™ recorder and Blu-ray Disc™ player.
    It may cause problems such as freezing when played on these devices.
    - When the ambient temperature is high or continuous recording is performed, the camera may stop the recording to protect itself. Wait until the camera cools down.

    (*²) For [C4K/60p] [C4K/50p] [4K/60p] [4K/50p] video output, use an HDMI2.0 cable that has the HDMI logo on it, and that is described as"4K compatible".

    (*³) The camera may stop recording when used in lower or higher than recommended operating temperature: -10 to 40 degrees.
