IMPORTANT
  • Proper operation cannot be guaranteed for all recording media.
  • In some cases, it may take longer to write data on the CFast card and recording may stop. To avoid this, we recommend that users regularly fully format and refresh their card using the "CFast Full Format and Refresh Tool" available from the link below.
  • SanDisk : http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/17370
  • If the card is inserted into a camera with a different firmware version, a message recommending to initialize the card may be displayed. In such case, back up the clips recorded on the card and then initialize it with the camera.

About CFast and SDXC cards:

You can use CFast cards and SDXC cards with this camcorder but such recording media are initialized using the exFAT file system.
  • When using exFAT-formatted recording media with other devices (digital recorders, card readers, etc.) make sure that the external device is compatible with exFAT. For more information on compatibility, contact the computer, operating system or memory card manufacturer.
  • If you use exFAT recording media with a computer OS that is not exFAT-compatible, you may be prompted to format the memory card. In such case, cancel the operation to prevent data loss.
