Recommended Memory Card for G1X II

I now have the G1X II to complement my 5D3 with 24-70 L f/2.8 II zoom lens. The G1X accepts SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards. What is the best type of class 10 card to use including the write speed for both pictures and video?

There are so many kinds of cards available that making the right choice is rather confusing. I see class 10 cards that have 200X even up to 600X on their labels, for example. Then there are also labels indicating 30MB/s, etc.

Many thanks for the help!

Sandisk Extreme in the size you want

They are very fast and I have never had a problem with them for years and years.

They are not the cheapest but will last for many cameras in the future.

Make sure you buy from a reputable retailer as the best SD cards are bootlegged.

Enjoy your new camera, I love mine
