Answer

 

Memory cards that can be used with your camera are as follows.
Yes: Can be used.
-: Cannot be used.
Memory card type
SD SDHC* SDXC* MMC MMCplus
Yes Yes Yes - -
*UHS-I cards compatible.

There is no limitation on card size.

When shooting movies, use a large-capacity card with a fast reading/writing speed as shown in the table.

 
Compression Method Card
IPB 6 MB/sec. or faster
ALL-I(I-only) 20 MB/sec. or faster
If you use a slow-writing card when shooting 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 play back properly.
If you want to shoot still photos while shooting a movie, you will need an even faster card.
To check the card's reading/writing speed, refer to the card manufacturers Web site.

 

IMPORTANT
The camera does not come with a card for recording images/movies. Please purchase it separately.
