Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

Below is the approximate time when recording videos using the HQ (1920x1080 30p) record setting with the supplied NP-BX1 battery pack.

  • Continuous recording time: approximately 140 minutes
  • Practical recording time: approximately 80 minutes

NOTE:

  • Practical recording time is an approximate time based on repeatedly starting and stopping recordings or turning the power on and off. Playback is not included in this measurement. Therefore, the actual recording time may be shorter.
  • Battery performance varies depending on the ambient temperature. When the temperature is extremely low, the actual recording time may be shorter than what is indicated. In this case, it is recommended to put the battery in your pocket to warm it up, and then reinsert it into the camera right before you start recording.
