Possible 
shots
 
The camera cannot use Type II CF cards or hard disk cards.
 
Although the camera does not comply with the UHS (Ultra-High Speed) 
speed class standard, UHS SDHC/SDXC cards can be used.
 
SDHC/SDXC memory cards can be used with the camera.
 
Ultra DMA (UDMA) CF cards can also be used with the 
camera. UDMA CF cards enable faster data writing.
 
The number of possible shots depends on the remaining capacity of the 
card, image-recording quality, ISO speed, etc.
 
Setting [z1: Release shutter without card] to [Disable] will prevent 
you from forgetting to insert a card (p.354).
