by Mitch Ives 5 years ago
I looked through all the pages, and it's possible that I missed it, but I didn't see any discussions of which cards work best with the GH4. Specifically, do you need the 280mb speed cards to do 4K. I'

by Darren Kelly 5 years ago

Re: Still not fixed, still slow renders... is Premiere really a worthy FCP replacement?
