Note on Recording Images and Saving Movies
The indicator showing the number of exposures remaining or the indicator showing the maximum movie length flashes while images are being recorded or while a movie is being saved.

Doing this could result in loss of data, or in damage to the camera or the memory card.
Notes on Movie Recording
• When saving a movie onto a memory card, a memory card with an SD speed class of Class 6 or higher is recommended (A23). If the transfer speed of the card is slow, the movie recording may end unexpectedly. If you start recording the movie without using digital zoom, and you keep rotating the zoom control toward g, the zoom stops at the maximum optical zoom ratio. Release the zoom control and rotate it again toward g to trigger digital zoom. • The sounds of zoom control operation, zoom, autofocus, vibration reduction or aperture control when the brightness changes may be recorded. • The following phenomena may be seen on the monitor while recording movies. - Banding may occur in images under fluorescent, mercury-vapor, or sodium-vapor lighting - Subjects that move quickly from one side of the frame to the other, such as a moving train or car, may appear skewed - The entire movie image may be skewed when the camera is panned - Lighting or other bright areas may leave residual images when the camera is moved
Notes on the Camera Temperature

The remaining amount of recording time (B 5 s) is displayed on the monitor. The camera turns off in 5 seconds after movie recording automatically stops. Leave the camera off until the inside of the camera has cooled and then use it. 7m23s
