Best memory card for GH5
on May 9, 2018 at 2:50:05 pm

Hi there

I've just got a GH5.

I'm after a couple of new memory cards to make the most of 4k. I want SanDisk as they've never let me down - unlike other makes!

I appreciate the gb size is up to me (I'm looking at about 128 simply due to budget).

But... here's where it gets tricky.

Do I go with Sandisk Extreme or Sandisk Extreme Pro? I can't tell the difference.

And what data rate? 4k and HD ranges between 200-400mbps in most cases on the GH5. So does that mean I have to get a 400mbps memory card? Or can I come in less?


Here is 128gb Sandisk Extreme https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/SanDisk-Extreme-128-GB-SDXC-Memory-Card-up-to-90-M...

And here is 128gb Sandisk Extreme Pro

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SanDisk-128GB-95MB-s-Extreme-Pro-SDXC-Memory-Car...

All have the same symbols and markings etc but one has Pro on it and costs a lot more (and is in black). What is the difference?

If high bit rate and Extreme Pro is the way to go it may have to be:

Which I know isn't 128 but 128 at 300mbps is £205, which is sadly out of my price range.

Thank you in advance

Chris

From my research, the speed difference (which is more about burst speed) doesn't matter much for video recording (which is constant).

We got the Pro anyway - but it was for business, not my personal money ☺

It could be a better idea to spend the money on more cards, instead of more expensive cards.

Thank you so much. That is really helpful and I can take that info with me now.

By luck I had already done what you said and brought more cards (4 x 128gb at 90mbs) instead of the speed. Which having now learnt only applies to photos is great - and lucky!

Thanks again

All the best

Chris
