Number of recordable images

When you insert a memory card into the camera and turn the camera on, the number of images that can be recorded (should you continue to shoot using the current settings) is displayed on the screen.


  • When “0” (the number of recordable images) flashes in orange, the memory card is full. Replace the memory card with another one, or delete images from the current memory card.
  • When “NO CARD” flashes in orange, it means no memory card has been inserted. Insert a memory card.

The number of images that can be recorded on a memory card

The table below shows the approximate number of images that can be recorded on a memory card formatted with this camera. The values are defined using Sony standard memory cards for testing.

The values may vary depending on the shooting conditions and the type of memory card used.

[JPEG Image Size]: [L: 24M]
[Aspect Ratio]: [3:2]*1

(Units: Images)

JPEG Quality/File Format 64 GB 128 GB
JPEG Standard 8700 17000
JPEG Fine 6100 12000
JPEG Extra fine 3400 6800
RAW & JPEG (Compressed RAW)*2 1600 3300
RAW (Compressed RAW) 2300 4600
RAW & JPEG (Uncompressed RAW)*2 1000 2000
RAW (Uncompressed RAW) 1200 2400

*1When [Aspect Ratio] is set to other than [3:2], you can record more images than the numbers shown in the table above. (except when [RAW] is selected)

*2 [JPEG Quality] when [RAW & JPEG] is selected: [Fine]


  • Even if the number of recordable images is higher than 9999 images, “9999” will appear.
  • The numbers shown are when using a Sony memory card.
