I just ordered an FX3 and can't decide on wether to go for a 320GB or 640GB CFexpress Type A card? I'm will be shooting in XAVC S-I 4K from 25fps up to 125fps (in S&Q). I use a good amount of slowmotion in my workflow. I'm not really sure if 320GB is enough for a day of shooting? A day of shooting for me is somewhere between 1-2 hours of footage, and on rare occasions up to 3 hrs.. Every day after a shoot i backup the footage and format the card for the next day. So i only need the card to last for a day (1-2hrs footage). I was also thinking about getting a V90 card and a smaller 160GB CFexpress. Then i can shoot 25fps on the V90 (i think the V90 card can handle XAVC S-I 4K) and 125fps on the CFexpress. But then i'll have to manually switch between the cards every time i switch frame rates, if the camera doesn't do it automatically? I guess it's possible to setup the different framerates and cards in shooting mode - so it won't be such a big problem. Does anyone shoot with either of these cameras and have experience in using the XAVC S-I 4K format with different frame rates that can maybe guide me to what the best option is for me? I found a guide which states that in this mode in 50/60fps you will get approx. 25min on a 160GB card. So 25fps would be around 50min. And with a 320GB card that would be around 1hr and 40min. If this is true the 320GB won't be enough right? So 640GB is the safer option? But $1400 is crazy! 🤯 Thank you!
