NOTE*1
NOTE* About motion picture recording / 4K PHOTO recording
NOTE- Use a card with SD Speed Class with "Class 4" or higher when recording motion pictures.
NOTE- Use a card with SD Speed Class with "UHS-I Speed Class 3 (U3)" when recording motion pictures in [4K/100Mbps] [C4K/100Mbps] [FHD/100Mbps] [FHD/200Mbps] or [4K PHOTO].
NOTE- Use a card with SD Speed Class with "UHS-I Speed Class 1 (U1)" or higher when recording motion pictures in [FHD/50Mbps].
NOTE- Use a card with SD Speed Class with "Class 4" or higher when recording motion pictures in [FHD/28Mbps].
NOTE(SD speed class is the speed standard regarding continuous writing.)
NOTE- MP4 motion pictures with [MP4] in [4K]:
NOTE- When using an SDHC memory card: You can continue recording without interruption even if the file size exceeds 4 GB, but the motion picture file will be divided and recorded/played back separately.
NOTE- When using an SDXC memory card: You can continue recording without interruption even if the file size exceeds 96 GB or 3 hours 4 minutes in length, but the motion picture file will be divided and recorded/played back separately.
NOTE- MP4 motion pictures with [MP4] in [FHD] [HD]:
NOTE- You can continue recording without interruption even if the file size exceeds 4 GB or 30 minutes in length, but the motion picture file will be divided and recorded/played back separately.
NOTE- When the ambient temperature is high or continuous recording is performed, the camera may stop the recording to protect itself. Wait until the camera cools down.
NOTE- These are standard times taken at a temperature of 23 oC (73.4 oF) and a humidity of 50%RH.
NOTE- The time available for recording varies depending on the environment, the interval between recordings, and the manner of use.
NOTE- Actual recordable time is the time available for recording when repeating actions such as switching the power supply [ON] / [OFF], starting/stopping recording, zoom operation etc.
NOTE*2
NOTEFor [4K] or [C4K] video output, use an HDMI cable that has the HDMI logo on it, and that is described as"4K compatible".
NOTE*3
NOTERecording conditions by CIPA standard
NOTE- Temperature: 23 oC (73.4 oF) / Humidity: 50%RH when monitor is on.
NOTE- Using a Panasonic SDHC Memory Card
