The choice of frame and bit rates varies with the movie mode.
Choose a movie format.
|MOV/H.265(HEVC) LPCM||A high-compression format that offers very high picture quality and high sound quality. Files are recorded to the memory card in 10-bit 4:2:0 and output to HDMI in 10-bit 4:2:2.|
|MOV/H.264 LPCM||High picture and sound quality. Frame rates of 59.94P and 50P are not available at an frame size of d17:9, and bHLG YHLG cannot be selected for F-Log/HLG RECORDING.|
A format suitable for movies that will be uploaded to the web. The following options are not available:
Movies shot using MOV/H.264 LPCM or MP4/H.264 AAC are recorded to the memory card in 8-bit 4:2:0 and output to HDMI in 10-bit 4:2:2.
Selecting MOV/H.264 LPCM or MP4/H.264 AAC changes settings as follows:
|Original setting||Final setting|
|F-Log/HLG RECORDING||bHLG YHLG||bP YP|
|bP YF-Log *||bF-Log YF-Log|
|bF-Log YP *|
* Changes only if MP4/H.264 AAC is selected.
Choose type of compression used to record movies.
|ALL-Intra||Each frame is compressed separately. Files are larger, but the fact that the data for each frame are saved separately makes this a good choice for footage that will be further processed.|
|Long GOP||Balances good image quality with high compression. Files are smaller, making this a good choice for longer movies.|
FULL HD HIGH SPEED REC
Record high-frame-rate Full HD movies. High-frame-rate movies can be played back in slow motion, giving you time to view fast-moving subjects or details too fleeting for the naked eye. Select ON to choose the recording and playback rates separately.
High-speed movies are recorded with no sound.
Maximum recording length is 6 minutes, but varies with camera settings.
The footage recorded to the memory card is compressed with the goal of keeping the amount of data recorded to 200 Mbps per second.
The options available for playback rate vary with the option selected for rate of recording.
FIX MOVIE CROP MAGNIFICATIONC
Fix the movie crop ratio at 1.29:1. This makes it easier to match crops when filming in different formats.
Choose the destination for F‐Log and HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) movies shot while the camera is connected to an HDMI device.
|bP YP||The footage is processed using film simulation and both saved to the memory card and output to the HDMI device.|
|bF-Log YF-Log||The footage is recorded to the memory card and output to the HDMI device in F-Log format.|
|bP YF-Log||The footage is output to the HDMI device in F-Log format but saved to the memory card with film simulation applied.|
|bF-Log YP||The footage is recorded to the memory card in F-Log format but output to the HDMI device with film simulation applied.|
|bHLG YHLG||The footage is recorded to the memory card and output to the HDMI device in HLG format.|
F-Log offers a gentle gamma curve with a wide gamut suitable for further processing post-production. Sensitivity is restricted to values between ISO 640 and ISO 12800.
The HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) recording format conforms to the international ITU-R BT2100 standard. When viewed on HLG-compatible displays, high-quality HLG footage faithfully captures high-contrast scenes and vivid colors. Sensitivity is restricted to values between ISO 1000 and ISO 12800. HLG recording is available when MOV/H.265(HEVC) LPCM is selected for BMOVIE SETTING > FILE FORMAT in the shooting menu.
Film simulation (P) footage is recorded using the option selected for HIMAGE QUALITY SETTING > FFILM SIMULATION in the shooting menu.
Footage shot with bP YF-Log or bF-Log YP cannot be recorded to the memory card and output to the HDMI at different frame sizes (4K, Full HD). In addition, the following BMOVIE SETTING and HIMAGE QUALITY SETTING options are unavailable:
- MOVIE MODE frame rate options of 59.94P and 50P
- FULL HD HIGH SPEED REC
- VINTERFRAME NR
- HDMI OUTPUT INFO DISPLAY

This option is only available when W16 : 9 or W17 : 9 is selected for BMOVIE SETTING > MOVIE MODE in the shooting menu.
When OFF is selected for HDMI OUTPUT INFO DISPLAY, movies will be output to the HDMI device in 4:2:2 10-bit format.
HDMI OUTPUT INFO DISPLAY
If ON is selected, HDMI devices to which the camera is connected will mirror the information in the camera display.
4K HDMI STANDBY QUALITY
Choose whether output to connected HDMI devices switches from 4K to Full HD during standby.
|V||Output to HDMI devices continues at 4K during standby.|

IBIS/OIS + DIS is not available when high-speed Full HD recording is enabled.
FIS MODE BOOST
Choose the image stabilization level.
|ON||Suitable for hand-held shooting with no panning.|
|OFF||Suitable for hand-held shooting with panning.|
