This camera records all videos internally to one or two of its memory cards. One of these cards is CFexpress and the other is SD UHS-II. 8K RAW can only be recorded on CFexpress.
The camera has a new touch display and viewfinder on the back. The display is 3.2 inches with 2.1 million dots. Its electronic viewfinder is a 0.5-inch OLED with 5.76 million dots and a refresh rate of 120 Hz.
