Well, video does not need the extra speed - I am fairly sure that the M series cards are rated V90 (you might want to check that). I have only G series cards, but I shoot uncompressed RAW stills on the A7RIV, and that can make a difference (even more on the insane A1).

If you decide to go for the M, though, you have the option of getting a larger card - the M cards come in 256 or even 512, I think (G tops out at 128).

Thanks! I did get an M card for video that seems to work great. IF ONLY my bag that had my memory cards, 1TB ssd drive, battery chargers, cables, a couple filters and step-up rings hadn’t gotten STOLEN on my trip to Oregon!! Ugh! My homeowners insurance has too high a deductible and my vehicle insurance doesn’t cover content theft! Grrr! Lol

That’s really frustrating. Even if you could replace all that gear, it would not replace The images and footage that would be on the cards and the ssd. And insurance doesn’t seem to cover revisiting all the places you’d been to shoot them
