    I have the Sony A6000 and upgraded the firmware to 2.0 be able to record movies in the XAVC S format and purchased the Sandisk Extreme PRO Class 10 95mbps card. The camera still says that the card is unsuitable for XAVC S and to change the format. Ideas?

    I know for the A7Rii the card needs to be at least 64GBs, anything smaller won't allow 4K recordings.
    I have bought a "Lexar Professional 64GB Class 10 UHS-II 1000x Speed (150MB/s) SDXC Flash Memory Card" which is the specification needed according to Sony.

    Thanks, after some researching online, it seems that the minimum card capacity needs to be 64GB. The one I have is 32GB :/

    64GB and you don't need UHS-II (in fact the camera can't even take full advantage of UHS-I!) but you do need SDXC and/or a U3 speed rating.
