Inserting Memory Cards
Pictures are stored on memory cards (sold separately).
The camera can be used with two cards, one in each of its two slots.
Open the memory card slot cover.
Unlatch and open the cover.
Do not open the memory card-slot cover when the camera is on. Failure to observe this precaution could damage image files or memory cards.
Insert the memory card.
Holding the card in the orientation shown, slide it in until it clicks into place at the back of the slot. Close and latch the memory card slot cover.
Be sure card is in the correct orientation; do not insert at an angle or use force.
Format the memory card ([FORMAT]).
Format memory cards before first use, and be sure to reformat all memory cards after using them in a computer or other device.
Removing Memory Cards
Before removing memory cards, turn the camera off and open the memory card slot cover.
Press and release the card to eject it part way (to prevent the card falling from the slot, press the center of the card and release it slowly, without removing your finger from the card). The card can then be removed by hand.
Using Two Cards
The camera can be used with two cards, one in each of its two slots. At default settings, photos are saved to the card in the second slot only when the card in the first slot is full. This can be changed using [SAVE DATA SET-UP] > [CARD SLOT SETTING (STILL IMAGE)].
|The card in the second slot is used only when the card in the first slot is full. If the second slot is selected for [SAVE DATA SET-UP] > [SELECT SLOT(SEQUENTIAL)], recording will start on the card in the second slot and switch to the first slot when the card in the second slot is full.|
|[BACKUP]||Each picture is recorded twice, once to each card.|
|[RAW/JPEG]||As for [SEQUENTIAL], except that the RAW copy of pictures taken with [FINE+RAW] or [NORMAL+RAW] selected for [IMAGE QUALITY SETTING] > [IMAGE QUALITY] will be saved to the card in the first slot and the JPEG copy to the card in the second slot.|
The card used to store movies can be selected using [SAVE DATA SET-UP] > [SELECT SLOT(SEQUENTIAL)].
Compatible Memory Cards
FUJIFILM and SanDisk SD, SDHC, and SDXC memory cards have been approved for use in the camera; UHS-II cards can be used in both slots, while cards with a UHS speed class of 3 or better are recommended for movies. A complete list of approved memory cards is available at “Compatibility”. Operation is not guaranteed with other cards. The camera cannot be used with xD-Picture Cards or MultiMediaCard (MMC) devices.
Do not turn the camera off or remove the memory card while the memory card is being formatted or data are being recorded to or deleted from the card. Failure to observe this precaution could damage the card.
Memory cards can be locked, making it impossible to format the card or to record or delete images. Before inserting a memory card, slide the write-protect switch to the unlocked position.
Memory cards are small and can be swallowed; keep out of reach of children. If a child swallows a memory card, seek medical assistance immediately.
miniSD or microSD adapters that are larger or smaller than memory cards may not eject normally; if the card does not eject, take the camera to an authorized service representative. Do not forcibly remove the card.
Do not affix labels or other objects to memory cards. Peeling labels can cause camera malfunction.
Movie recording may be interrupted with some types of memory card.
Formatting a memory card in the camera creates a folder in which pictures are stored. Do not rename or delete this folder or use a computer or other device to edit, delete, or rename image files. Always use the camera to delete pictures; before editing or renaming files, copy them to a computer and edit or rename the copies, not the originals. Renaming the files on the camera can cause problems during playback.
