If you use the camera to format a CF card with 128 GB or less in capacity or an SD/SDHC card, the camera will format it in FAT32. With a FAT32-formatted card, if you shoot a movie and the file size exceeds 4 GB, a new movie file will be created automatically.
When you play back the movie, you will have to play each movie file individually. Movie files cannot be played back automatically in consecutive order. After the movie playback ends, select the next movie and play it back.

If you use the camera to format a CF card with more than 128 GB in capacity or an SDXC card, the camera will format it in exFAT.
When using an exFAT-formatted card, even if the file size exceeds 4 GB during movie shooting, the movie will be saved as a single file (rather than being split into multiple files).
