Number of images and battery 
life that can be recorded/
viewed

The tables show the approximate number of 
images and the battery life that can be recorded/
viewed when you shoot images in normal mode 
with fully charged nickel-metal hydride batteries 
or new alkaline batteries at a temperature of 25°C 
(77°F). The numbers of images that can be 
recorded or viewed take into account changing 
the “Memory Stick” as necessary. Note that the 
actual numbers may be less than indicated 
depending on the conditions of use.

The capacity of nickel-metal hydride batteries 
decreases little by little as you use it more and 
more, and as time passes (page 113).

Shooting in the following situations:

The image quality is set to [Fine]

[AF Mode] is set to [Single]

Shooting one time every 30 seconds

The flash strobes once every two times

The power turns on and off once every ten 
times

The measurement method is based on CIPA 
standard. (CIPA: Camera & Imaging Products
