NOTE Recording conditions by CIPA standard
NOTE - Temperature: 23 oC (73.4 oF) / Humidity: 50%RH when LCD monitor is on.
NOTE - Using a Panasonic SDHC Memory Card
NOTE - Using the supplied battery.
NOTE - Starting recording 30 seconds after the camera is turned on. (When the optical image stabilizer function is set to [ON].)
NOTE - Recording once every 30 seconds with full flash every second recording.
NOTE - Rotating the zoom lever from Tele to Wide or vice versa in every recording.
NOTE - The number of recordable pictures varies depending on the recording interval time.
NOTE - If the recording interval time becomes longer, the number of recordable pictures decreases.
NOTE - CIPA is an abbreviation of [Camera & Imaging Products Association].
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 - 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 with [MP4] in [4K] or [4K PHOTO].
NOTE (SD speed class is the speed standard regarding continuous writing.)
NOTE - Maximum time to record motion pictures continuously with [MP4] in [4K] is 29 minutes 59 seconds.
NOTE - Maximum time to record motion pictures continuously with [MP4] in [FHD] [HD] [VGA] is up to 4 GB.
NOTE - Maximum time to record High Speed motion pictures continuously is 7 minutes 59 seconds.
NOTE For [4K] video output, use an HDMI cable that has the HDMI logo on it, and that is described as"4K compatible".
