  • All measurements are performed in conformity with Camera and Imaging Products Association (CIPA) standards or guidelines.
  1. Vibration reduction is disabled when using Still images in route shooting.
  2. The camera shoots at a fixed focus when using Still images in route shooting.
  3. When using Still images in route shooting.
  4. Battery life does not reflect the use of SnapBridge and may vary with the conditions of use, including temperature, the interval between shots, and the length of time that menus and images are displayed.
  5. Individual movie files cannot exceed 4 GB in size or 29 minutes in length. Recording may end before this limit is reached if camera temperature becomes elevated.
  6. Dropped from a height of 150 cm (5 ft) onto a surface of 5 cm (2 in.) thick plywood (changes in appearance, such as paint peeling off and deformation of the drop shock portion and waterproof performance are not subject to the test). These tests do not guarantee that the camera will be free from damage or trouble under all conditions.
Specifications are subjects to change without notice.
