How many images can my camera hold?

The chart below shows the approximate number of images at each available quality mode that the FE-300 can store in its internal memory and on a variety of optional xD-Picture Card™ media. The camera can store images and movies in any combination of quality modes. All figures are approximate.

How much movie recording time does my camera have?

The amount of movie recording time depends on the quality mode used to shoot the movies and the length of each shot. 

Two factors comprise a quality mode: image size (that is, the resolution of each frame in the movie) and frame rate (the number of frames that are stored per second of recording time). Quality modes that use a larger image size or faster frame rate generate larger data files than those that use smaller image sizes or slower frame rates. Therefore, they will exhaust storage capacity more quickly.

In movie mode, the FE-300 can, in most cases, record continuously for up to 29 minutes or until the card is filled, whichever occurs first. When using Standard or Type M xD-Picture Card™ media or the camera's internal memory, the maximum recording time per movie in the SHQ quality mode is 40 seconds or the capacity of the media, whichever is smaller.

The chart below shows the maximum continuous movie recording time available in each quality mode when using the camera's internal memory or Type M+ or Type H xD-Picture Card media. The chart assumes that the medium has been freshly formatted.

1Recording times are approximate and are calculated based on storage capacity; they are not a guarantee of battery life.

2In SHQ mode, movie recording time is limited to about 40 seconds per file when the movie is saved to Standard or Type M xD-Picture Card media.

3Using any size/type xD-Picture Card media, the maximum length per movie is 29 minutes.
