Best SD Cards for Panasonic G9

Panasonic G9 has the same sensor and many similar features like the GH5, although it has a somewhat smaller body and is geared towards photographers rather than videographers. With that said, it can still shoot great video (4K at up to 60 fps and 1080p at up to 180 fps!). Let’s take a look at some of the best SD cards for G9.

Best SD Memory Cards for Panasonic G9

The G9 features two UHS-II memory card slots, just like the GH5 and GH5s. As you probably know, these slots are backwards compatible, which means that you can use UHS-I cards as well. However, the question is should you? In our opinion – no – it’s better to opt for a bit more expensive UHS-II cards. They are much faster at writing photos, especially if you’re shooting a lot of action and sports.

The G9 can shoot photos at up to 60fps burst speed in AF-S mode and 20 fps in continuous AF-C, which is why we suggest UHS-II cards.

Recommended SD Cards for 4K Video on G9

Panasonic G9 can shoot in all video modes found on GH5 and GH5s (mentioned above) with the exception of 10-bit 4:2:2 4K video at 400 Mbit/s (50 MB/s), and that’s completely fine, unless you’re a video professional who really needs this format. This means that even high-quality UHS-I cards are good enough for video work, although we’d still go for UHS-II SD cards, as they are future proof.

Conclusion

Panasonic G9 is a great alternative to GH5 for people who are more into photography, yet still shoot some video as well. It is one of the best hybrid micro 4/3 cameras on the market today. Like we previously mentioned, we’d go with UHS-II cards for this camera, especially if money is not an issue.
