[1] UHS Speed Class 3 certification guarantees 30 MB/s min. write performance for video recording on UHS-I and UHS-II interfaces. Speed Class 10 certification guarantees 10MB/s min. write performance for video recording on standard SD interface.

[2] One Gigabyte (1GB) means 109 = 1,000,000,000 bytes using powers of 10. A computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1GB= 230 = 1,073,741,824 bytes and therefore shows less storage capacity. Available storage capacity (including examples of various media files) will vary based on file size, formatting, settings, software and operating system and other factors.

[3] Read and write speeds may vary depending on reading / writing device and the file types and sizes being read / and or written.

[4] Waterproof (compatible with IPX7), shockproof (passed 5m drop test), X-ray proof (compatible with ISO7816-1), temperature (operating environment) -25°C to 85°C.
