Note All measurements are performed in conformity with Camera and Imaging Products Association (CIPA) standards or guidelines.

*1 When the battery temperature is below 0°C (32°F), movies with the size/frame rate set to 2160/30p (4K UHD), 2160/25p (4K UHD), 1080/60p, 1080/50p, HS 480/4x, or HS 1080/0.5x cannot be recorded.

*2 Battery life does not reflect the use of SnapBridge and the LED light 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.

*3 Individual movie files cannot exceed 4 GB in size or 29 minutes in length. When Movie options is set to 1080/30p, it cannot exceed 27 minutes in length. Recording may end before this limit is reached if camera temperature becomes elevated.

*4 Dropped from a height of 240 cm (7 ft 10 in.) 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.

*5 A plug adapter is included if the camera was purchased in a country or region that requires a plug adapter. The shape of the plug adapter varies with the country or region of purchase.

*6 The EH-73PCH Charging AC Adapter may be included instead of the EH-73P, depending on the country or region where you purchased the camera.
