Installing and Removing the Card


Installing and Removing the Card

The camera can use a CF card and SD card. Images can be recorded when at least one card is installed in the camera.

If a card is inserted in slots, you can select which card to record images to or record the same images simultaneously on cards

If you use an SD card, be sure the card’s write-protect switch is set upward to enable writing/erasing.

1 Open the cover.

  • Slide the cover as shown by the arrow to open it.

2 Insert the card.

  • The camera-front side slot is for a CF card, and the camera-back side slot is for an SD card.

  • Face the CF card’s label side toward you and insert the end with the small holes into the camera. If the card is inserted in the wrong way, it may damage the camera.

    • The CF card eject button will stick out.

  • With the SD card’s label facing you, push in the card until it clicks in place.

3 Close the cover.

  • Close the cover and slide it in the direction shown by the arrows until it snaps shut.

    • When you set the power switch to <>, the number of possible shots and the loaded card(s) will be displayed on the LCD panel.  The images will be recorded to the card with the < > icon next to the respective card’s indicator.


  • The camera cannot use Type II CF cards or hard disk cards.

  • Although the camera does not comply with the UHS (Ultra-High Speed) speed class standard, UHS SDHC/SDXC cards can be used.

  • SDHC/SDXC memory cards can be used with the camera.

  • Ultra DMA (UDMA) CF cards can also be used with the camera. UDMA CF cards enable faster data writing.

  • The number of possible shots depends on the remaining capacity of the card, image-recording quality, ISO speed, etc.

  • Setting [: Release shutter without card] to [Disable] will prevent you from forgetting to insert a card


Removing the Card

1 Open the cover.

  • Set the power switch to <>.

  • Make sure the access lamp is off, then open the cover.

  • If [Recording ...] is displayed, close the cover.

2 Remove the card.

  • To remove the CF card, push the eject button.

  • To remove the SD card, push it in gently and release it. Then pull it out.

  • Pull the card straight out, then close the cover.

  • When the access lamp is lit or blinking, it indicates that images are being written to or read by the card, being erased, or data is being transferred. Do not open the card slot cover during this time. Also, never do any of the following while the access lamp is lit or blinking. Otherwise, it can damage the image data, card, or camera.

    • Removing the card.

    • Removing the battery.

    • Shaking or banging the camera around.

  • If the card already contains recorded images, the image number may not start from 0001 (p.154).

  • If a card-related error message is displayed on the LCD monitor, remove and reinsert the card. If the error persists, use a different card. If you can transfer all the images on the card to a computer, transfer all the images and then format the card with the camera. The card may then return to normal.

  • Do not touch the SD card’s contacts with your fingers or metal objects.
