The expressP2 memory card (excluding B series) and the microP2 memory card support the security function “Content Protection System” that allows encryption formatting to prevent data leakage to third party.
This camera supports reading of the CPS formatted expressP2 memory card and microP2 memory card.
To read the CPS formatted card, set the CPS password for the camera, and enable the authentication function and the encryption format function of the expressP2 memory card or the microP2 memory card. Encrypted memory cards will be automatically recognized between devices where the same CPS password is set, and recording and playback of the memory cards will be enabled. For details, refer to “Setting CPS password”.
