  • Any issues sharing SD cards between pocket camera and gh4?

    Hi guys, I rented a gh4 for some slow motion stuff later this week. I was just going to use the SanDisk Extreme 95mb cards that I use in my pocket, in the gh4. As long as I format first thing every time I put in each respective camera, I shouldn't have any issues, correct?

    Anyone use both and have 1st hand experience ?

    I would always use SDFormatter to format SD cards. This will always guarantee a proper format.

      I use SDFormatter to format between two different cameras and no problems so far.

        Sweet, thanks guys. I've never heard of SDFormatter but I'll give it a shot.

          I did it a month ago and even had a GH2 in the mix. Each camera needs you to format the card when you put it in. No problem.

            If you're running a BMD firmware that allows you to format your cards in camera then you don't need an external application to do it for you. Just be sure to format the cards in camera before you start recording and you'll be fine.

              Cool deal. That's much more convenient.

                No problems whatsoever sharing cards between cameras provided you format them in camera first. I regularly use my Sandisks in both my G6 and my BMPCC and just format them in camera. They work absolutely fine.
