In a very tight spot and need 128gb inside my BMPCC tomorrow. I've been reduced to Wal-Mart, as I don't live in a media friendly area, and they only have a single 128gb mini SD card.

 

Obviously it comes with an adapter, but I was just curious if there are any drawbacks/risks with just using a mini card that aren't immediately apparent?

 

It's able to get up to 80mb/s which isn't ideal but I can make it work.

 

Thanks.

I have used a micro SD with an adapter in my GH4 on one occasion, and it worked to the limit of the card. It should work though, just make sure the Micro SD card specs meet the minimums for the camera. The adapter simply creates an electrical pathway from the larger SD to smaller Micro SD card, and as such should not pose any great issues itself, short of maybe build quality on a cheaper card.
