Notes About Movie Recording
Notes About Saving Images or Movies
• The indicator showing the number of exposures remaining or the indicator showing the 
remaining recording time flashes while images or movies are being saved. Do not open 
the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover or remove the battery or memory 
 while an indicator is flashing. Doing this could result in loss of data, or in damage to 
the camera or the memory card.
• When using the camera's internal memory, recording movies may take some time.
• Depending on the file size of a movie, it may not be possible to record the movie in the 
internal memory or copy it from a memory card to the internal memory.
Notes About Recording at Low Temperature
When the battery temperature is below 0°C (32°F), movies with the size/frame rate set to 
2160/30p (4K UHD), c 2160/25p (4K UHD), e 1080/60p, f 1080/50p
HS 480/4×, a HS 480/4×, j HS 1080/0.5×, or Y HS 1080/0.5× cannot be 
• If the battery temperature goes below 0°C (32°F) before you start recording, the size/frame 
rate of the movie switches to e 1080/30p or S 1080/25p.
• If the size/frame rate of the movie is set to d 2160/30p (4K UHD), c 2160/25p (4K 
UHD), e 1080/60p, f 1080/50p, h HS 480/4×, a HS 480/4×, j HS 
, or Y HS 1080/0.5× and the battery temperature goes below 0°C (32°F) 
while recording, the camera may stop recording and turn off automatically. The recorded 
movie is saved.
Notes About Recorded Movies
• There may be some degradation in image quality when digital zoom is used.
• The sounds of zoom control operation, zoom, autofocus lens drive movement, movie 
vibration reduction, and aperture operation when brightness changes may be recorded.
• The following phenomena may be seen on the screen while recording movies. These 
phenomena are saved in the recorded 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.
• Depending on the distance to the subject or the amount of zoom applied, colored stripes 
may appear on subjects with repeating patterns (fabrics, lattice windows, etc.) during 
movie recording and playback. This occurs when the pattern in the subject and the layout 
of the image sensor interfere with each other; it is not a malfunction.
Notes About Vibration Reduction During Movie Recording
• When Movie VR (A146) in the movie menu is set to On (hybrid), the angle of view (i.e., 
the area visible in the frame) becomes narrower during movie recording.
• When using a tripod to stabilize the camera during shooting, set Movie VR to Off to 
prevent potential errors caused by this function.
