USING A MEMORY CARD
USING A MEMORY CARD
You can expand the storage
capabilities of your camera by using
a commercially available memory
card (SD memory card or
MultiMedia Card). You can also
copy files from built-in flash
memory to a memory card and from
a memory card to flash memory.
• Normally, files are stored in built-in flash memory. When
you insert a memory card, however, the camera
automatically stores files to the card.
• Note that you cannot save files to built-in memory while a
memory card is installed in the camera.
IMPORTANT!
• Make sure you turn off the camera before inserting or
removing a memory card.
• Be sure to orient the card correctly when inserting it.
Never try to force a memory card into the slot when
you feel resistance.
• See the instructions that come with the memory card
for information about how to use it.
• Certain types of cards can slow down processing
speeds.
• SD memory cards have a write protect switch, which
you can use to protect against accidental deletion of
image data. Note, however, if you write protect an
SD memory card, you must remove write protection
whenever you want to record to it, format it, or delete
any of its files.
