Inserting a Memory Card

Although the camera can store pictures in internal memory, SD memory cards (sold separately) can be used to store additional pictures.

When no memory card is inserted, aappears in the monitor and internal memory is used for recording and playback. Note that because camera malfunction could cause internal memory to become cor- rupted, the pictures in internal memory should periodically be transferred to a computer and saved on the computer hard disk or on removable media such as CDs or DVDs. The pictures in internal memory can also be copied to a memory card (see page 94). To prevent internal memory from becoming full, be sure to delete pictures when they are no longer needed.

When a memory card is inserted as described below, the card will be used for recording and playback.

Compatible Memory Cards

SanDisk SD and SDHC memory cards have been tested and approved for use in the camera. A complete list of approved memory cards is available at index.html. Operation is not guaranteed with other cards. The camera can not be used with multime- dia or xD-Picturecards.


Memory cards can be locked, making it impossible to format the card or to record or delete images. Before inserting a memory card, slide the write-protect switch to the unlocked posi- tion.
