  1. See “Memory cards that can be used” for more information about memory cards.
  2. Battery life does not reflect the use of SnapBridge and may vary with the conditions of use, including temperature, the interval between shots, and the length of time that menus and images are displayed.
  3. Individual movie files cannot exceed 29 minutes in length, even when there is sufficient free space on the memory card for longer recording. The maximum size of a single movie file is 4 GB. If a file exceeds 4 GB even when you record for less than 29 minutes, it is split into multiple files and cannot be played back continuously.
    Recording may end before the maximum recording time is reached if the camera temperature becomes elevated.
