It captures 4K footage at up to 30fps (24fps and 25fps are also available for a cinematic look), and it can store that footage at a 100Mbps bitrate using IPB compression in an MP4 or MOV container format. Users can freely choose the format from MOV, MP4, AVCHD Progressive and AVCHD at a variety of frame rates according to the usage.
