[1] 1 MB/s is calculated as 1,000,000 bytes/s. These values are the best values obtained in a specific test environment at KIOXIA Corporation and KIOXIA Corporation warrant neither read nor write speeds in individual devices. Read and write speed may vary depending on a device used and file size read or written. The write speed is lower than the read speed.
[2] Speed classes indicate the results under the test conditions specified by SD Association.
[3] Recording time: The actual recording time will vary depending on your device, resolution and compression ratio. Calculated as 1Mbps = 1,000,000 bps.
[4] Number of shots: Assuming a compression rate of 1/4. The number of shots that can be taken depends on the subject, shooting conditions, resolution, and compression ratio.

microSD memory cards are consumables and have a finite product life as represented by the number of write cycles and other parameters. The actual product life of a microSD memory card may be reduced, depending on usage conditions.

Capacity is based on installed flash memory and not user available memory as part of the memory is used for management functions. About usable capacity (available user area), please check each product (1GB is calculated as 1,073,741,824 bytes).
