• Turn the camera off before inserting or removing memory cards.

  • The camera is equipped with two memory card slots: Slot 1 (q) and Slot 2 (w), allowing use of two memory cards. If you are using only one memory card, insert it into Slot 1.

  • Holding the memory card in the orientation shown, slide it straight into the slot until it clicks into place.

Removing Memory Cards

After confirming that the memory card access lamp is off, turn the camera off, open the memory card slot cover, and press the card in to eject it (q). The card can then be removed by hand (w).

Number of Exposures Remaining

  • When the camera is on, the shooting display shows the number of photographs that can be taken at current settings.

  • At default settings, [Overflow] is selected for [Role played by card in Slot 2] in the photo shooting menu. When two memory cards are inserted, pictures will first be recorded to the card in Slot 1, switching to Slot 2 when the card in Slot 1 is full.

  • If two memory cards are inserted, the camera will show the number of additional photographs that can be recorded to the card in Slot 1. When the card in Slot 1 is full, the display will show the number of exposures remaining on the card in Slot 2.

  • Values over 1000 are rounded down to the nearest hundred. For example, values between 1500 and 1599 are shown as 1.5 k.

The Write Protect Switch
