For S&Q Motion shooting

File formats and compatible memory cards are as follows.

In slow-motion recording, the recording bit rate is higher than usual. You may need a memory card that can be written at a higher speed.

Slow-motion and quick-motion movie shooting are not available with [XAVC HS 8K].

File Format Maximum recordable bit rate Supported memory card
XAVC HS 4K 500Mbps
  • CFexpress Type A memory card (VPG200 or higher)
  • SDXC V60 or higher*1

*1 When [Frame Rate] is set to [120fps]/[100fps], you may need an SDXC V90 memory card.

*2 When [Frame Rate] is set to [240fps]/[200fps], you may need an SDXC V90 memory card.

*3 For slow-motion recording, a CFexpress Type A memory card (VPG200 or higher) is required.

*4 When [Frame Rate] is set to [240fps]/[200fps], a CFexpress Type A memory card (VPG200 or higher) is required.

Hint

  • When the recording bit-rate is 200 Mbps, you can also record using an SDXC card (U3/V30).

Note

  • When shooting a proxy movie, a higher-speed memory card may be required.
  • CFexpress Type B memory cards cannot be used.
  • When an SDHC memory card is used to record an XAVC S movie over extended periods of time, the recorded movies will be divided into files 4 GB in size.
  • When recording a movie on memory cards in both the Slot 1 and the Slot 2 with following camera settings, insert two memory cards with the same file system. Movies cannot be recorded simultaneously when using a combination of the exFAT file system and FAT32 file system.
    Memory card File system
    CFexpress Type A memory card, SDXC memory card exFAT
    SDHC memory card FAT32
  • Charge the battery pack sufficiently before attempting to recover the database files on the memory card.
