MicroP2 is just a UHS-II SD card?

Am I understanding this correctly, MicroP2 cards are nothing more than UHS-II SDXC cards? I wonder if Panasonic does anything to them to cause standard UHS-II cards to not record AVC100 in MicroP2 card slots.

It's a firmware/software lock for the specific cards Panasonic makes.

Ahhhhhh, figured, sort of like a battery chip to not allow aftermarket batteries to work on a Sony camera. :-P

When you pry open P2, they are actually four Panasonic high speed SDHCs combined in proprietary RAID circuits, # of cycles used and so forth. To me it's really the method of implementation that counts. The SDHC is simply a raw medium.
