    Thank you for your interest in Sony products.

      * The camera compatible with video speed class V60/V90 etc. as recommended recording media

    SF-G series TOUGH specification: 
    To check whether your card is affected, look for a star mark and an alphanumeric at the lower corner on the back of the card.
    If your card has NO star mark and has an alphanumeric beginning with “TV”, your card is affected by this issue.
    (If your card has an alphanumeric beginning with “TR” or has a star * mark, your card is not affected by this issue.)
