FYI: It appears that G1 X II does NOT have UHS-II writer/reader !
5 months ago

I expected UHS-II for this year's new cams, maybe new 5D IV or it will likely stay w/ CF/XQD (180MBs+) mem?

This only impacts video I believe. UHS-II for those who don't know has 240MBs (bytes) capability or 1920Mbs (bits) or there abouts.

I derived this via some footnotes that did not mention UHS-II but only UHS-I instead.

Even 'lowly' 2kHD Raw video can overwhelm SD UHS-I writer bandwidth or even more high bit rate H.264 video, so no plans or ability for this to be a monster raw video shooter via Magic Lantern f/w!

Also, have seen no mention of 4kHD video capability anywhere, so ONLY in the next gen. if there is a next.

But nonetheless, this looks like a very versatile handy cam, would love to have - just too rich for this poor boy (cam + EVF).

Canon EOS 5D G1 X II
