New, Expensive Memory Cards For Pentax Full Frame?

The new Nikon D5 and D500 cameras will require a new Sony memory card to achieve their ultra high speed recording speeds.

Would you be willing to purchase these new and very expensive cards to get extremely high recording speeds on the new Pentax full frame?

Do you think Pentax will require them on their new full frame?

The Pentax full frame has a dual SD slot, so I probably won't be picking up any XQD cards Plus, it's clearly not going to be a sports-oriented camera so the point is more or less moot.

Also, is Nikon going to make two different versions of the D5, or is it XQD-only? I hope that whatever replaces the D810 doesn't go down that route.

Yes.
One with dual CF and one with dual XQD.
The D500 has two slots an SD card and an XQD.

Not a bad idea to give owners of the D5 a choice. And the hybrid approach is better for the D500 and other future Dxxx models IMO.

I understand the high frame rate is required on these new Nikon cameras not just for stills, but also to enable up to 30minutes of 4K video shooting.

Can one assume that because the Pentax full frame does not require these new super fast cards that it will not be offering 4K video?

I thought that the D4 already had dual slots with one being QXD. Most likely not the speed of these cards but also not totally new either.

with the d5, you can pay nikon to swap the card reader to the other type.

buy the qxd d5, swap it to cf, and vice versa.

dual slot swaps of course, no mixing card types in one camera.

4K video is possible with other cameras - eg the Sony A7RII, or in fact my Sony Z5 mobile phone - using just SD or micro-SD cards. So I don't think the card slots on the K-1 tell us much about the video capabilities of the camera.

For now I don't see Pentax using this card type. I even don't think Canon will, but we will see new camera's from them soon. Nikon probably will make their D820 wit one of these cards and a second sdxc slot.

Exactly. My Galaxy S5 does 4K recording to a micro-SD.
