How much can I fit on a SD card or CFExpress card is a question that comes up regularly. So I have prepared a table of the typical record times for most of the different codecs and frame rates for the ICME-FX6 camcorder. Do note that the times given are approximate and do not include proxies.  Not every frame rate and codec is included but you should be able to figure out the approximate record time for most cards, codecs and frame rates using this table.

The times for the codecs up to 60fps would also apply to the or any other Sony camera that uses the same codecs.
