Question :
Approximately how many shots can be taken with a fully charged battery?

Answer:
The number of recordable shots with a fully charged BLX-1 battery are:

  • Approx. 500 shots when Quick Sleep Mode is Off
  • Approx. 1,010 shots when Quick Sleep Mode is On
  • * when using KIOXIA KSDXU-A064G, IS set to ON, without flash, based on CIPA standard



Question :
What is the approximate movie recording time with a fully charged battery?

Answer:
The approximate movie recording time with a fully charged BLX-1 battery are:

  • Approx. 90 min according to JEITA
  • Approx. 150 min when zooming or other operations are not used
Note:
  • - When the video taken with a SDXC card exceeds 3 hours, the video is automatically divided and the rest is saved as a separate file. (Depending on the shooting conditions, the file may be divided in less than 3 hours.)
  • - When the video taken with a SD/SDHC card exceeds 4 GB, the video is automatically divided and the rest is saved as a separate file. (Depending on the shooting conditions, the file may be divided in less than 4 GB.)



Question :
What is the approximate file size in each record mode?

Answer:
The following tables show the approximate values:

·When shooting in RAW mode
·When shooting in JPEG mode
·When shooting in High Res Shot (Tripod, Handheld)

Note:

The same image (OM Digital Solutions' standard image) is used to calculate the file size in each mode. The file size depends on the subject or the type of memory card.


When shooting in RAW mode
* Approximate file size when the aspect ratio is set to 4:3

Record Mode Image Size
(Pixel Size)
File Format File Size (Approx.)
RAW 5,184×3,888 ORF 22.4 MB

When shooting in JPEG mode
* Approximate file size when the aspect ratio is set to 4:3
* The default combination of JPEG image quality mode (image size and compression mode) is L-SF, L-F, L-N and M1-N.
* The compression rate for JPEG image quality mode is 1/2.7 in SF, 1/4 in F and 1/8 in N.

When shooting in High Res Shot
* Approximate file size when the aspect ratio is set to 4:3
* The ORI file recorded in 50M F+RAW and 25M F+RAW mode is the first shot when shooting in High Res Shot.

Regarding RAW recording 14bit for High Res Shot:
If you select 14bit in the recording bit setting for High Res Shot, the tone expression will be richer, but the file size will be larger. It takes time to process the image after shooting than that of the 12bit image. It is suitable to be edited later on a computer.
What is a ORI file?

When image quality mode is set to RAW+JPEG, a single RAW image (".ORI" extension) before combining is saved in addition to the combined High Res Shot. This RAW image can be played back in OM Workspace.




Question :
What is the approximate movie recording time in each mode?

Answer:
The following table shows the approximate values:

Video Codec H.265:

H.265 codec is a setting intended for editing on a computer, such as for video production. Although the file size can be compressed better compared to the H.264 codec, a TV or monitor that supports 10-bit input is required to play the videos with correct color and brightness. The videos cannot be played back in OM Workspace. If you do not have the equipment that allows you to playback or edit H.265 videos, set the recording codec to H.264.

Note:
  • - The video file format is MOV (H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, H.265/HEVC).
  • - The table shows the values when set to the maximum frame rate. The actual recorded bit rate varies depending on the shooting scene or combination of frame rates.
  • - When the video taken with a SDXC card exceeds 3 hours, the video is automatically divided and the rest is saved as a separate file. (Depending on the shooting conditions, the file may be divided in less than 3 hours.)
  • - When the video taken with a SD/SDHC card exceeds 4 GB, the video is automatically divided and the rest is saved as a separate file. (Depending on the shooting conditions, the file may be divided in less than 4 GB.)
