What are the best cards to use?

For GH2? I use two of the 16GB Sandisks. [url=http://www.personal-view.com/talks/discussion/90/sandisk-extreme-sdhc-cards/p1]http://www.personal-view.com/talks/discussion/90/sandisk-extreme-sdhc-cards/p1[/url]

They are some of the only cards that work with the high bitrate GOP1 patches (which are the best patches IMO).

If you want the best quality video (using highest Driftwood settings) the 95mb/s Sandisk cards are the only way to go.

Even though the GH2 doesn't officially support the UHS-1 spec, these Sandisk cards use higher speed chips that work well with what Driftwood and Vitaliy are pumping out.

The thread linked to above is VERY old and while some of the 30-45mb/s cards will work with "some" patches, they won't do well when stressed.

Don't cheap out on your cards - you will regret it.  No point in saving $20 or so here or there when the card might be useless if a patch comes out that requires something faster.  Reselling cards on ebay won't get much of your investment back.

Cheers!

Might be different.  Someone with experience with the new Magic Lantern (Andrew the obvious expert) hacks would have to chime in because I don't know how intensive the new boosted bit rates are on that Canon.

Cheers!
