Request: Please test EgoDisk CFast cards with the Pocket 4k

PostThu Aug 09, 2018 3:31 pm

Been a while since I've been active on this board. I own a C200 as my A cam, and have pre-ordered a Pocket 4k. I've been using EgoDisk CFast cards with my C200, and hope that they make the cut to be on the approved list, but they're such a small brand that I'm worried BMD won't bother testing with them. Here's to hoping we get those tested as the pricing makes them an attractive option for a camera priced at $1,200.

They don't have to be on the approved list in order to work. Cinema RAW Light has a bitrate of 125 MB/s which is only 3MB/s lower than 4K DCI RAW 3:1 at 30fps so any card that can record one should be able to record the other.
