  • The recordable time may vary depending on the recording and subject conditions and [REC Mode].
  • You can record movies of a maximum of 9,999 scenes in XAVC S format or 3,999 scenes in AVCHD format. And you can record a maximum of 40,000 MP4 movies and photos collectively.
  • The maximum continuous recording time of a movie is approximately 13 hours.
  • This product uses the VBR (Variable Bit Rate) format to automatically adjust image quality to suit the recording scene. This technology causes fluctuations in the recording time of the media. Movies containing quickly moving and complex images are recorded at a higher bit-rate, and this reduces the overall recording time.
