My GH4 died...maybe.

Gear question. I was on a shoot this morning, and my GH4 just flat died. It's mounted on a glide cam, we are 2mins from starting, I look down and do one last adjustment on the glide cam, all good. Director turns to all the cameras and says, ready? I look down to start rolling and see a black screen. Maybe it fell asleep, nope. Dead Battery, nope. I run to my bag and swap batteries...all 5, nothing.

Has this happened to anyone else?

EDIT: All set everybody, seems it was a bad SD card.

Yep, card was corrupted when I formatted it the night before. Won't mount on my desktop and just locks up the camera. Tossing that one.
