    If I want to buy a SDXC card that can handle 4k recording in high profile, what are the choices? I wonder what the minimal requirement is.

    I'm also curious about this. I have pre-ordered the Panasonic HC-VX870 camcorder that is capable of recording in 4k. Stupidly, I didn't even think about what SD card I would need. I believe it records at 72Mbps.

    The sandisk extreme pro does 95 MBps:

    "4K Ultra HD-ready Today
    4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160p) video provides exceptional clarity but capturing it without interruption requires significantly greater speed and storage capacity than previous generations of imaging cards provide. Our 512GB SanDisk Extreme PRO SDXC™ card delivers both speed and capacity, so the video you shoot today is ready for the newest 4K Ultra HD televisions and monitors."

    The UHS-II version does 280:

    "Speed Class 3 Rated for Flawless 4K and Full HD Video Capture
    With a UHS Speed Class 3 rating--faster than UHS Speed Class 1 and Class 10--the SanDisk Extreme PRO SDHC/SDXC UHS-II Memory Card gives you the power to capture uninterrupted, cinema-quality 4K, 3D, and Full HD video at a minimum sustained write speed of 30MB/s"
