SD cards for the 645Z

Just wondering what you Z owners are using in terms of SD cards.

What do you recommend for such a camera. Im wondering if the cheaper / slower cards will be no good in the 645Z?

Thanks Tom.

You buy a 645Z and skimp on the card!??? The RAW files are over 50 MB. Go big, go fast.

You want them as fast as they can get (within UHS-I). I use two of these:
SanDisk 64 GB SDXC Memory Card Extreme Pro Class SDSDXP-064G-A46

No not at all, I'm just trying to work out if my older cards will do.

I'd say as fast as you can get and afford with one remit - no point in getting one that is faster than the camera can write.

I got a pair of these 64gb Transcend cards. They are the same as what I use in my work cameras and are well fast enough to swallow all the video I can send to them.
