The VIXIA HF and HG series support both SD as well as SDHC memory cards


You can use commercially available SDHC (SD high capacity) memory cards up to 32GB and SD memory cards with this camcorder. However, depending on its Speed Class, you may not be able to record movies on the memory card. We recommend using SDHC memory cards with a Speed Class 4 ()or higher.

  • About SDHC Memory Cards: SDHC is the new type of SD memory card with capacities over 2 GB. Please note that the specifications of SDHC memory cards are different from those of regular SD memory cards and you will not be able to use memory cards of over 2 GB with devices that do not support SDHC. However, SDHC devices (including this camcorder) are backward compatible and support regular SD memory cards.
  • About the SD Speed Class: The SD Speed Class is a standard that indicates the minimum guaranteed data transfer speed of SD/SDHC memory cards. When you buy a new memory card, look for the Speed Class logo on the package.
