It will format built-in memory if no memory card is loaded.

• The format operation will delete all contents on the memory card or in built-in 

memory. It cannot be undone. Make sure you do not need any data currently on 
the card or in built-in memory before you format it.

• Check the battery level before starting a format operation and make sure it is not 

too low. Formatting may not be performed correctly and the camera may stop 
operating normally if the camera powers down while formatting is in progress.
