Did you purchase from a reputable dealer - certain that it is a genuine card?


Yes, Ozon.ru, local Amazon analog in Russia, one of the biggest online shops here. It does not look like a fake.

Minimum write speed on my macbook internal SD card reader and BMD Disk Speed Test is 73.1 MB/s, just now made 5 cycles.

BMPCC shows blinking red sign on the top left corner after ~10 seconds of RAW record in 24fps. May be problem with my BMPCC, don't know... Yeah

I bought a Kingston Canvas React 256GB SD yesterday. Worked fine recording DNG on my BMPCC at 30fps for an hour without issue. Also worked well in the Pocket 4K at 30fps 4K DCI Q0.
Mine has the same part numbers and packaging as GeoRover posted.

So, today bought Sandisk Extreme Pro 128Gb 95Mb/s WITH V30 — and it works, RAW in 24fps working without frame dropping on my original BMPCC. Kingston Canvas React 256Gb did not work for RAW with my particular camera — frame dropping after first minute with RAW, Prores HQ works normally. Sandisk Extreme Pro 128Gb 170MB/s not work, camera don't see it. Samsung Evo Plus and Samsung Evo Pro — frame dropping in Prores HQ even after ~3 min.

The only conclusion, that I can make after 3 days of researching and testing different cards — you should test your particular BMPCC with SD card, that you buy. Only the test solves will it work or not. It looks like absolutely random.

Unfortunately the exact model number isn't printed on the card. Do you still have the packaging? The latest from BMD is that "** SanDisk Extreme Pro 95MB/s SD cards with Product Number Prefix SDSDXXG are not supported". SDSDXP were the old ones which did work.
It's going to be confusing if the latest SD cards from Sandisk now work but have the same model designation.
I see that there are two Sandisk Extreme Pro 128G listed on the WD site:
SDSDXXG-128G-ANCIN
and
SDSDXXY-128G-ANCIN

Yes, we should always be doing that anyway. Even with reputable brands and models that are known to work there is always some risk of any given piece of equipment being bad, and sometimes faults only show up under very specific conditions.

I would agree that this one seems particularly strange, but there have been some variations in what has worked for different people with these cameras, with a card working for one person and another having problems.

There are multiple reports on the forum from other users that the SDSDXXY cards do not work, and the SDSDXXG cards are the ones that BMD originally reported as not working.

I've had a time with my, new to me, OG blackmagic pocket cinema camera. I purchased several SD cards that "should" have worked, but did not. Blackmagic support sent me here. I appreciate all the info you guy have shared. My first bit of luck was on my own, but it was only a 64GB card and could only record about 15 minutes of 30FPS raw, but it worked! It's a refurbed old school sandisk extreme pro. They are cheap too $12.95. Here's the item title description on the amazon page I bought it at...they wouldn't let me post URLs.

SanDisk Extreme PRO 64GB SDXC Card 95MB/s UHS-I SDSDXPA-064G-X46 (Renewed)

I wanted more space on the card though, cause 15 minutes is not enough. A few days ago I ordered the a Kingston Canvas React 256GB SD card. It just came in the mail today, I've been shooting raw 30fps on it for over 20 minutes as of now and it's still going strong with no dropped frames. I had to format it in with my PC first so the camera could recognize it, but I should be able to shoot raw for over an hour on this thing. Thanks again for the info everyone. Here's the item title description of the one I bought on amazon.

Kingston Canvas React 256GB SDXC Class 10 SD Memory Card UHS-I 100MB/s R Flash Memory High Speed SD Card (SDR/256GB)

I also ordered a
"Samsung 256GB EVO Plus Class 10 UHS-I microSDXC U3 with Adapter (MB-MC256GA)"
because it was also recommended as working in the BMPCC. I will post my findings when I get it, if it doesn't work I'll send it back and order another Kingston react.
So glad to be dialing in on new cards that work on these amazing cameras.
Cheers
Ben

The Samsung Evo never arrived. I have amazon prime, and they are usually spot on. I got a delivery notification, but no delivery. They were awesome enough to issue me a refund for the lost Micro SD card. I went ahead and ordered another Kingston react because it worked great, and a full sd card feels more robust than a micro card. If the samsung ever shows up by chance I will be sure and test it and post my results, but I'm super happy with the kingston, and like the idea of having several matching cards rather than a mix of cards.

I ended up recording on the Kingston for over 40 minutes without dropped frames. It was pretty much a fresh battery from full to empty. I'm good with that.

Best of luck on your SD card search!

if this is useful for someone in 2020, the sony 128gb SF-GU1Z works with the original bmpcc and the bmmcc, i tested 60fps RAW 3:1 and it works flawlessly.

All the codecs and frame rates are supported by this sd card in the bmmcc.

i bought it from Amazon UK, just be sure that the code in the card be SF-GU1Z

I recorded RAW 30fps with NO problems at all.

RAW @ 30fps = 1:00 Hours of record time
RAW @ 24fps = 1:15 Hours of record time



Hi at all, I just joined the forum.
I have BlackMagic Micro Cinema Camera, I have problem to find a card.
I have a 128GB Sandisk Extreme Pro SDXC V30 170 MB/s and no recognized card on camera.

I have read that there is Integral ultima Pro 256Gb SD Card 4K Ultra-HD, but someone had drop frame problems recording in RAW.

The Angelbird card are very good, but too much expensive.

Is Kingston Canvas React 256GB compatibile with BMMCC also? Whit all its formats.
Thank you.

There have been mixed reports about the Canvas React cards and the BMMCC - most of what I've seen seems to suggest that they do not work with some of the formats on the BMMCC. I don't have a BMMCC to test on myself.

I have a BMMCC (actually two of them now, I just got a second one, used). I tested the Canvas React 128 gb card in it and everything was fine until 60fps, which started dropping frames right away. 30fps raw, compressed raw, or Prores HQ was fine, but this card can't handle 60 fps, at least in my test with the 128 gb card.

Oddly enough on my original BMPCC (Pocket Cinema) the Canvas React won't record 30 fps without dropping frames, but that's an issue with my camera rather than the card; even the BMD-recommended original SanDisk cards drop frames on my BMPCC at 30fps in raw or Prores HQ.

I got the Kingston Canvas React 256 GB from Amazon at the link provided above. I was able to record 30 minutes of RAW @ 24fps with no errors. This is longer than I would normally record in the field, so that's good news. I have a bunch of older 64 GB cards because normally I record ProRes HQ. But I have a project coming up that I want to record in RAW. Of course I'd forgotten how much data that is. Ugh.
