Inserting a P2 card

When using the camera for the first time, be sure to set the time data beforehand. (Setting the date/time of the internal clock)

Select and use either of the microP2 or P2 memory card slot on the camera.


Set whether to use the microP2 memory card slot or the P2 memory card slot.

Select [REC MEDIA] in the main menu → [RECORDING SETUP].

When using microP2 memory cards, select [microP2], and when using P2 memory cards, select [P2].

Open the card slot cover. (Fig. 1)

Insert a card into the card slot. (Fig. 2)

  • microP2 memory cards

    • Insert with the label side facing left.

    • There are two microP2 memory card slots.

  • P2 memory cards

    • Insert the card with the logo facing left until the eject button pops out.

    • Press the eject button that popped out to the upward.

Make sure that the P2 card access LED is lit orange or green. (Fig. 3) (P2 card access LEDs and status of P2 cards)

When two microP2 memory cards are inserted in the card slots, recording will be performed in order from the microP2 memory card with the smaller slot number. However, regardless of the slot number, if a microP2 memory card is inserted later, that microP2 memory card will be accessed later than the previously inserted microP2 memory cards.

  • Example: When microP2 memory cards are inserted in two slots

    If microP2 memory cards are inserted into two slots, the cards are used as P2 card in the order of the slot number 1 → 2. However, if you remove the microP2 memory card from slot 1 and then insert it again, recording of the microP2 memory card will take place in order from slot 2 → 1.

The microP2 memory card number to be recorded to is maintained even if the camera is turned off. When the camera is next turned on, recording can be continued to the same microP2 memory card as before the camera was turned off.

Close the card slot cover.
