    Hi Guys!
    I've hacked my G2 a week ago and just finished a weekend of intense filming. Damn, is my card slow! We had to stop a few times, because my camera abandoned recording.
    Now I'm looking for a nice&fast SD card. I'm thinking Sandisk Ultra 32 GB or Sandisk Extreme 32 GB. Does anyone have any experience? Will those work as fast as they are supposed to work? Is Extreme worth those extra bucks?

    Why am I wondering? My friend got a fast A-Data SD for his GH2 and it's even slower than my microSD class 4 Kingston (in camera, not in tests). That's why. I know Sandisks are the best choice, I know about Extreme Pro (but that's just too expensive and too much for Lumix G2).

    Anyway, what do you use?

    Thanks in advance!
    Cheers!

    Www.thewirecutter.com has a good article about this (search for SD Card). Some cards live up to their own hype and some don't.

    I prefer the 95MBs Sandisk Extreme but not the price.
    The new SanDisk 280MBs and class 3 are even more overpriced.

    I have use the following and they were fast enough for 4k video on my GH4
    Just barely 4k but very good otherwise: (dirt cheap) 128GB Komputer Bay 600x
    No sweat:new 64GB Kingston class 3

    More than fast enough for GH2: SanDisk 45MBs
    Barely fast enough for GH2: SanDisk 30MBs
