  • Even if the Sandisk SDHC/SDXC UHS-II (280MB/s) are compatible with the Cantar X3, they won't be faster than UHS-I.
  • Even if the speed is slower, the Sandisk Extreme PLUS SDHC UHS-I and the Sandisk Extreme SDHC UHS-I have been tested.
  • The other SD/USB manufactured can also be used, but haven't been tested.
  • If a media stay RED (>100%) during the record, it is too slow for the current configuration.
    In such a situation, the solution is to switch the RED media in idle mode (backup in background), to get back to a safe behaviour.
