(2) Automatic switching of recording media
  • When the current recording media becomes full, it switches to another recording media automatically and continues recording.
(3) Separate recording
  • Each recording media can be set to record a specific image-recording quality for each shot.
(4) Recording of identical images
  • Images can also be recorded at the same size to both recording media. (RAW+JPEG, M RAW+JPEG or S RAW+JPEG is possible).
(5) Backup to external recording media
  • Selected images, all images, and quick backup are possible.
