Additional information The number of images

that can be saved/ shooting time The number of images that can be saved and the shooting time are different, depending on the capacity of the “Memory Stick,” the image size, and the image quality. Refer to the following charts when you choose a “Memory Stick.” • The number of images is listed in FINE (STANDARD) order. • The values for the number of images that can be saved and the shooting time may vary, depending on the shooting conditions. • For normal shooting times and numbers of images that can be saved, see page 30. • When the remaining number of images recordable is more than 9999, “>9999” is indicated.
