    Anyone know what the max SD card size that can be used on a GX7? A local store has a PNY 256GB SDXC card for $100… Seems like a deal to me…Just want to make sure I can use it…

    thx

    Should work fine. I've used a 128GB in mine without any problems.

    How do I thank a poster for his post? I have been looking for the method for quite some time and have been unable to find out how to do it
    Thanks.

    Hi,

    The 'Thanks' link is on the bottom left of each post if using a browser; if using the mobile app, long-press on a post for a menu.

    Barry,

    Thanks for your response. I was afraid of that. There is no 'Thanks' link that I can see. I have attached a screenshot of the Mu-43 page. I'm using a Macintosh running OSX 10.9.3 and Safari as a web browser View attachment 33806

    That's a great price, especially for 256GB and the read/write specs. For others who are interested, B&H also sells it for $120 which is still a great price for that capacity and spec.

    The next question to ask is whether you should use it. I learned the hard way to stick to quality, currently using Sandisk Extreme 45 MB/s. Never going back to bargains.

    I have had PNY CF cards that never gave me any trouble, nor have Transcend or 7dayshop branded ones for those interested.

    Whether you should use an SD card this big is an entirely different matter. Personally, I just don't feel comfortable shooting that many images on one card. 64GB is the maximum capacity I feel comfortable with using.

    I also use SanDisk cards on all of my cameras and prefer their Extreme Pro cards which have max speeds of 95MB/S read and 90MB/S write. I have yet to have any SanDisk card crap out on me whereas I've had a few from other brands that went into the garbage.

    I know my response was 'unhelpful', but I had no idea how to fix it. I see you fixed it. How?

    I can't remember. Didn't get it after all. I need to work on my video skills. The eye is strictly photo right now. Lol
