*1 SDXC Memory Cards can only be used in SDXC host devices, which support the SDXC format.
*2 SDHC Memory Cards can only be used in SDXC and SDHC host devices, which support the SDHC/SDXC format.
*3 1GB means 1 billion bytes. Usable capacity will be less.
*4 The data transfer rate is a theoretical value and is not a guarantee of performance. The transfer rate may vary depending on the conditions and equipment used.
*5 This card complies with SD Memory Card Physical Layer Specification Ver.3.0 (SDHC)/Ver.1.10 (SD). When using this card with SD-enabled products that comply with the specification, a speed performance of up to 20MB/sec. can be realized. When using it with SD-enabled products that comply with the conventional specification Ver. 1.01, the speed performance will be up to 10MB/sec.

• An SDXC/SDHC/SD Memory Card utilizes a portion of the storage space for formatting and other purposes.
• We recommend using SDXC/SDHC/SD Memory cards conforming to class 4 or higher of the SD Speed Class Rating or the above SD Memory Cards made by Panasonic for video recording.
