Bit rate indicates video output only, audio is not included.

Movie recording is interrupted if the maximum recording time per movie, 29 min. 59 sec., is exceeded. (Time is different for High Frame Rate movies.) However, depending on the shooting conditions or shooting environment, if the camera’s inner temperature rises, recordable time may further become shorter.

Sound is not recorded for approx. the last two frames when the compression method for movie recording quality is IPB or IPB Light (audio: AAC) or [Custom FunctionsAudio compression] is set to [Enable].

The video and sound may be slightly out of sync when movies are played back in Windows.
