GH2 - Memory Card recommendation
on Jul 20, 2014 at 10:21:59 am

Hi there

Just brought a GH2 - can't wait to use it!

Going to need a memory card obviously! Was wondering what peoples recommendations are? Or what to avoid?

Was looking at 64 gb and 32gb SDXC or SDHC. You can get them on ebay.co.uk for £25 but there are cheaper ones for £11! Wondered if people recommend staying away from these cheaper ones or have people found they tend to be as good?

Any recommendations/help/tips on this would be great

Many thanks

Chris

An example of what I'm unsure of after... I've been looking at SD cards today. I've noticed some I like price wise that are 64gb but they have a data rate of 34mbps. If I'm recording on the Gh2 at 50mbps (I believe it has to be hacked to achieve this) does that cause a problem? Should I be buying a card that has a higher mbps than what I'm recording at or does it not matter.

The highest 32gb card I found was 45mpbs whereas 64gb I found 50+ (although it was rather expensive) so does 32mbps not go higher than 45mbps meaning I should just buy 64mbps?

Also whats better for recording video on - SDHC or SDXC

Thanks

Go for the Sandisk Extreme Pro series. Really good cards for shooting HD videos.

Thanks! Great stuff!

Do I need to make sure the Mbps of the card is higher than that which I'm recording at or does it not matter?

Thanks

Yes, for sure. Unless you're shooting 4K, the extreme pro cards should be good. The U3 cards offer much better performance at a higher price. Most of my industry fiends use the Sandisks as they are easily available here in Singapore.
A couple more options.

Any class 10 card is fast enough. Sandisk extreme are 45/MB/s, Extreme Pro 90MB/s. The only real difference is how quick you can transfer the card onto your computer (assuming you have a decent USB3 card reader, Cheap ones cam be under 10MB/s). For me the extra money for the pro ones is not worth it. Kingston also make some reasonably fast cards and they are a good make, I use them sometimes.

I use the Transcend 32GB memory card. Works great with hacks.

Hi everyone!

Was wondering what people think of Sandisk Ultra for recording GH2 video onto?

It's almost half the price of Sandisk Extreme and before I opt for the Extreme I'd see what people think of the Sandisk Ultra brand

Thanks
