As this new level of quality is so demanding, the capacity of the Inspire 2 CINESSD range must also be on par. You may still record on a Micro SD card however you will not be recording to the true potential of the Inspire 2. As you may have noticed in the table above, depending on how you want to record and which CINESSD card you use will affect the capacity you can shoot and the quality. If you want the best quality and to record for the most amount of time we do recommend the 240GB or even the 480GB.

You may have noticed the 3 different licences that are available that will allow you access to either the CinemaDNG, Apple ProRes or both together. See below for the highlights of the key features and specs of each.
