How to increase the recording time on my SLT-A58

    Recording time is dependent on internal memory which can be increased by using a compatible memory card.

    The table below shows the approximate total recording times using a memory card formatted on the camera.

    • The recordable time for movies varies because the camera is equipped with VBR (Variable Bit Rate), which automatically adjusts image quality depending on the shooting scene. When you record fast-moving subjects, the image is clearer but the recordable time is shorter, because more memory is required. The recordable time also varies depending on the shooting conditions or subject or the image quality/size settings.
    • The values shown are not for continuous recording time.
    • Recording time may depend on shooting conditions and the memory card used.
    • When is displayed, stop recording. The temperature inside the camera has increased to an unacceptable level.
