  • *The maximum recording time is the estimated total recording time. The maximum recording time per shooting is 90 minutes or the equivalent of 4 GB.
  • *The maximum number of consecutive shots that can be taken using continuous mode is 999. When the number of remaining shots is 1000 or more, "999" is displayed on the picture display.
  • *The figures shown for the maximum number of shots that can be recorded for M-Cont (2M), M-Cont (9M), and Speed Cont are the estimated total number of shots that can be recorded. The number of shots that can be recorded at one time is 30 for M-Cont Plus (2M), 15 for M-Cont Plus (9M), and 120 for Speed Cont.
  • *The maximum number of shots for Multi-Target AF is the estimated total number of shots that can be recorded. The number of shots that can be recorded at one time is 7. When the number of remaining shots is 9999 or more, "9999" is displayed on the picture display.
  • *The number of remaining shots displayed on the picture display may differ from the actual number of shots, depending on the subject.
  • *Movie recording time and the maximum number of still pictures may vary depending on the capacity of the recording destination (internal memory or SD memory card), shooting conditions, and the type and manufacturer of the SD memory card.
  • *A high speed memory card is recommended when shooting for long periods.
