      • The lens operation is powered by the camera's battery. Depending on the lens used, the number of possible shots may be lower.
      • Using the Image Stabilizer of the lens will decrease the number of possible shots (shorter battery life).

      • When shooting movies, use a large-capacity SD card rated SD Speed Class 6 "  " or higher.
      • If you use a slow-writing card when shooting movies, the movie might not be recorded properly. And if you playback a movie on a card having a slow reading speed, the movie might not playback properly.
      • Due to limitations of the file system, movie shooting will stop automatically if the file size of a single movie clip reaches 4GB. To resume movie shooting, press the <  > button. (A new movie file starts being recorded.)
      • The maximum recording time of one movie clip is 29 min. 59 sec. Depending on the subject and the increase in the camera’s internal temperature, the movie shooting might stop sooner than 29 min. 59 sec.
