  • What SD card does the Panasonic Lumix GH4 need to record 4K?

    The GH4 requires a new class of SD card to record 4K reliably, as indicated on the chart below. The card needs to have a speed rating of UHS3, which is different from the UHS-1 class 10 and 6 cards typically used to record HD. Panasonic released three new UHS3 cards at the launch of the GH4.Click Here For More Info
