Recording rates and times
Four models are available depending on the maximum resolution the camera is capable of. The frame rates and recording times are detailed below:
Normal Mode *
Long record mode (with streaming option) **
All specifications subject to change. All record rates assume 8-bit data.
*Record times assume 8GB of memory. Divide Record times by 2 for approximate 4GB record times.
**LR Record times assume “D” option and 1TB SSD. Divide by 2 for 512GB SSD; multiply by 2 for 2TB SSD.
