*1 Use a memory card of SD speed class 4 or above when recording with PH mode/HA mode. Recording cannot
be performed with a memory card of lower than SD speed class 4.
*2 Use a memory card of SD speed class 2 or above when recording with PM mode/HE mode.
*3 PH mode: This is the highest quality mode in 1080i/720P format.
PS mode: This is the highest quality mode in 1080P format.
*4 Use a memory card of SD speed class 6 or above when recording with PS mode. Recording cannot be
performed with a memory card of lower than SD speed class 6.
••The camera utilizes the VBR recording system. VBR stands for Variable Bit Rate, a recording system
where the bit rate automatically varies (volume of data per given time period) according to the subject
being shot. Therefore, recording times will be shorter when fast moving subjects have been recorded.
••Control space is included in the displayed capacity, and available recording capacity will be smaller.
••Continuous recording time is a maximum of 12 hours (when using the AC adaptor).
••Recording can be sometimes restarted even if it was paused due to shortage of space.
••Even for the same memory card, the recording time differs depending on conditions such as the
recording format or recorded images.
••The recording time of a memory card may shorten when record and delete are repeated often over and
over. In that case, format the memory card with the camera. When a memory card is formatted, all data
recorded on the memory card is erased and cannot be restored. Save important data to your computer.
••Use a memory card of SD speed class 6 or above when using the VFR function. Recording cannot be
performed with a memory card of lower than SD speed class 6.

SIMUL REC
When memory cards are inserted in both of the two slots, activating this function enables recording the
same video to both the memory cards. Set the [SIMUL REC] item on the setup menu [RECORDING
SETUP] screen to [ON] to enter the SIMUL REC mode.
In the media capacity display on the screen, the available recording time possible for SIMUL REC (the
available recording time of the memory card with lower memory capacity) is displayed, and the icon
[ ] is displayed.
••Recording stops when one of the memory cards in Slot 1 or Slot 2 has no remaining space.

If you press the <START/STOP> button without replacing the memory card in Slot
1, video will be recorded normally on the memory card in Slot 2 (the memory card
with remaining memory).
• If the remaining capacity of the memory card in Slot 1 is same as in Slot 2, the remaining capacity in
Slot 1 is displayed.
• SIMUL REC cannot be used at the same time as relay recording, VFR recording, or INTERVAL REC.
• During SIMUL REC, if recording has stopped because a recording error has occurred in one of the
memory cards, the other memory card will continue to record.
• After SIMUL REC ends, when there is capacity remaining on one of the memory cards, that memory
card will automatically be selected as the memory card for recording. Press the <START/STOP>
button again for normal recording.
• While in SIMUL REC mode, if only one memory card is inserted, normal recording takes place.
• After SIMUL REC, the REC CHECK function does not operate.
• After SIMUL REC, the [LAST CLIP] function does not operate.
• When switching to <PB> mode after SIMUL REC, the thumbnails of the memory card in slot 1 will be
