buffer overflow issue

im looking into getting the nx5 and am reading about this issue. even before the firmware upgrade, did this happen if you used the better more reliable sd cards? a friend of mine bought cheap cards, this after spending 4000.00 on the camera. not sure why anyone would skimp on the most important part.
what are the best cards that are compatible with this camera and were there buffer overflow problems with them too?
not figuring in the separate fmu at all .

You better read more carefully, the problem isn't with the memory cards, it's with the FMU.
The problem happened with many kinds of SHDC and Memory Stick Pro Duo cards in conjuction the FMU, OR the FMU alone. If you record only on memory cards (like on AX2000) there is no problem.

And with the firmware 2.0 update the problem is fixed... so now there is no problem.

Bugs happen in software/firmware...

Talk about a problem... how about the Canon engineers programming their still camera's that also shoot HD Video (SX-1, t2i, 7d, etc) to shoot video at 30fps... not 29.97 mind you... but an actual 30fps. Woops! They just released a firmware update a few weeks back to fix it in the t2i, 7d, etc... but not the sx1)

Of course when you pay 4k or more for a device you expect to have it be perfect... but it seldom happens. Sometimes the bugs are not so important. Other times the are killers.

Truth is it is a wonder there are not more bugs. These are darn complicated devices. Thank goodness for reprogramable ROM's... there was a time when you would have had to burn a new ROM and swap chips to fix "firmware"

2 cents :)
