Notes on recording movies

Read the following precautions regarding movie recording.


  • The recordable time may vary depending on the recording and subject conditions and [REC SET].
  • You can record movies of a maximum of 600 scenes in XAVC S format or 3,999 scenes in AVCHD format. And you can record a maximum of 40,000 photos.
  • The maximum continuous recording time of a movie is approximately 13 hours.
  • The camcorder 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 memory card. Movies containing quickly moving and complex images are recorded at a higher bit-rate, and this reduces the overall recording time.
