FUJIFILM and SanDisk SD, SDHC, and SDXC memory cards have been approved for use in the camera; UHS-I is supported. 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.
Format memory cards before first use, and be sure to reformat all memory cards after using them in a computer or other device.
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.
