Cards That Can Record Movies

When recording movies, use a card with ample performance (fast enough writing and reading speeds) for the movie recording quality.
Test cards by recording a few movies to make sure they can record correctly at your specified size.

  • With Movie cropping set to [Disable], Movie digital IS set to [Off].

 

 

IMPORTANT
  • Before recording 8K or 4K movies, format cards by selecting [ Low level format ] in [ : Format card ].
  • If you use a slow-writing card when recording movies, the movie may not be recorded properly. Also, if you play back a movie on a card with a slow reading speed, the movie may not be played back properly.
  • When recording movies, use high-performance cards with a writing speed sufficiently higher than the bit rate.
  • When movies cannot be recorded properly, format the card and try again. If formatting the card does not resolve the problem, refer to the card manufacturer’s website, etc.
  • Unsupported movie recording
The following files cannot be recorded to SD cards. Pressing the movie shooting button will not start recording.
- RAW movies
- 8K ALL-I
- 4K 119.9/100.0 fps (High Frame Rate movies)
- 4K ALL-I HEVC (YUV422, 10-bit)
- 4K 59.94/50.00 fps ALL-I H.264 (YUV420, 8-bit)
REFERENCE
  • To obtain better performance with the card, formatting the card with the camera before recording movies is recommended.
  • To check the card’s writing/reading speed, refer to the card manufacturer’s website, etc.
