CX6 : How many pictures can the camera store in each image size ?

Estimates of image sizes and storage capacities in the CX6 are shown below.

[Note]
    • The number of remaining available shots shown in the picture display may differ from the actual number of shots that can be taken, because the file size of an image varies according to its subject.
    • The number of still images that can be shot and the total length of movies that can be recorded vary according to the capacity of the storage destination (internal memory or SD memory card), shooting conditions, and the SD memory card manufacturer and type.
    • A high speed memory card is recommended when shooting for a long period. A card should be formatted in a camera before usage.
    • Choose image size according to how the picture will be used.
