Excerpt: This card has additional contacts on the back which are not used by my GH4 camera but are used by a UHS-II reader to obtain the rated performance. First, if you have a GH4, the requirement is 200 Mbps which is only 25 MB/s. Even a UHS-I card should be sufficient.
Pros: Durable, Fast Computer Interface, Lightweight, Reliable

Summary: Bought this (Extreme Pro 95MB/s) for my Fuji XE-1 camera. Got a good deal Rs 4990/- . Earlier I was using Sandisk Ultra (30MB/s) which used to take 4.5s to save a RAW+JPG file into the card. With this, the time has reduced to 2.2 s.
