Record movies with sound.


Recording Movies

Movies can be recorded by pressing the t (movie recording) button or rotating the mode dial to F (movie).

The t (Movie Recording) Button

Use the t (movie recording) button to quickly and easily record movies while in still photography mode.

The camera automatically selects [CONTINUOUS AF] for focus mode.

  1. Press t to start recording.

    • A recording indicator (V) is displayed while recording is in progress.
    • The display shows the elapsed recording time.

  2. Press t again to end recording.

    Recording ends automatically when the movie reaches 29 minutes 59 seconds or the memory card is full.

F (Movie) Mode

For more control over camera settings, rotate the mode dial to F (movie) and record movies using the shutter button.

  1. Rotate the mode dial to F (movie).

  2. Press the shutter button to start recording.

    • A recording indicator (V) is displayed while recording is in progress.
    • The display shows the elapsed recording time.

  3. Press the shutter button again to end recording.

    Recording ends automatically when the movie reaches 29 minutes 59 seconds or the memory card is full.

Temperature Warnings

The camera automatically turns off to protect itself when its temperature or the temperature of the battery rises. If a temperature warning is displayed, image noise may increase. Turn the camera off and wait for it to cool before turning it on again (aWarning Messages and Displays).

Use a memory card with a UHS speed class of 3 or better when recording movies.

Sound is recorded via the built-in microphone or an optional external microphone. Do not cover the microphone during recording.

Note that the microphone may pick up lens noise and other sounds made by the camera during recording.

Vertical or horizontal streaks may appear in movies containing very bright subjects. This is normal and does not indicate a malfunction.

The indicator lamp lights while recording is in progress.

In the case of zoom lenses, zoom can be adjusted during recording using the zoom ring (if available).

Exposure compensation can be adjusted during recording, but only by a maximum of ±2 EV.

Recording may be unavailable at some settings, while in other cases settings may not apply during recording.

Headphones connected via USB can be used to monitor audio during movie recording. Use the supplied headphone adapter to convert the USB connector to a plug for a headphone jack.

Using an External Microphone

Sound can be recorded with external microphones that connect using jacks 3.5 mm in diameter; microphones that require plug-in power cannot be used. See the microphone manual for details.

Adjusting Movie Settings

Movie settings can be adjusted from the movie menus or using the B[MOVIE SETTING] item in the photo menus (aUsing the Menus).

Changes made using the B[MOVIE SETTING] item in the photo menus also apply to the movie menus. Changes made in one set of menus automatically apply in the other.

Depth of Field

To soften backgrounds, set aperture as wide as possible. Aperture can be adjusted directly in modes [A] (aperture-priority AE) and [M] (manual).
