    I forgot to include some important camera accessary information from CP+ show- the latest and fastest memory card announcements...
    SanDisk SDHC and SDXC UHS-II Extreme Pro memory cards :- SanDisk's new cards are fastest SD cards to date as per the company and can write upto 250MB/s data and read at 280MB/s. So it is certified for 4K recording , high bitrate HD and 3D video recording etc- so good to go with Panasonic's DMC GH4 and Fujifilm's X-T1 also compatibel ( but i dont think that camera needs this fast cards as it offers nothing at this one's extreme).

    SanDisk's Extreme Pro Compact Flash memory card 2.0 :- The UHS- II certified flash card boasts a write speed of 350MB/s and transfer speed of 450MB/s and also easily good for 4K recording and extreme quality HD videos and are fastest Compact Flash cards announced to date. There is no cunsumer level camera yet to utilise this beast except pro level video camera Arri Amira.
