    Hi all,

    I ordered my Inspire + 4 TB47 batteries and was wondering what kind of flash memory cards are supported. Any indication as to the maximum capacity of the card reader?

    Also, if filming in 4k, what kind of memory card requirements are we talking about. For example, how much memory would be needed for 1 hour of 4k footage.

    Finally, I'm guessing we can't view any of the footage if we are not working on a 4k capable display. Does this mean I need to buy the new iMac 5k in order to edit the material. Worse still, do I need to spend a fortune on a 60 inch 4k TV as well?

    Your thoughts?

    You can still view 4k video on a 1080 screen, you just won't get all of the detail, like when you look at a 20mp picture, and then zoom into 100%, that extra detail will be there.

    The 4k rate is listed at 65Mbps. The one claimed raw 4k video that was posted for download was 250MB. I just purchased a couple of 64GB PNY SDXC cards rated at 90MB/s from the Amazon sale for $30.

    Those 64MB cards should get you almost 1 second of video each! :)

    Is it 65MBps or 65 Mbps. Because he could get 8 seconds of video then.
