XQD Card distinctions
on Dec 12, 2018 at 7:36:36 pm

Hi All,

I am looking to purchase a few additional XQD cards for my FS7 kit. I currently use Sony XQD G-series 128GB cards. I see online that there is also a G series card with a 120GB capacity. Other than the 8GB capacity difference, does anyone know if there would be a compelling reason to use one of these cards over the other?

Also, has anyone had experience with XQD cards made by other manufacturers?

Thanks!

I was told by my reseller that the newer generation has a stronger metal casing that makes the xqd card more durable. Apparantly there was a demand for that especially from rental company's. This is supposed to have made the physical internal space smaller, hence the 8GB capacity difference.

I still don't get why they can make a 240GB card in the same space, but that's the answer I got.
