Hello
I have a question regarding Cinema DNG and CINE SSD's
I was told that I will not be able to record Cinema DNG footage using 120G CINE SSD Card and I have to buy 480G only.

Is that true? Why there are other capacities available if that's the case?

Sorry if this was discussed here already, I could find a relevant post.

Thank you !

I read in another post, back when this was first announced, that the CinemaDNG files are so big that it would not be practical with the 120GB SSD. That unit can be used for ProRes recordings only. I thought that CinemaDNG would also work on the 240GB SSD. I have the 480GB model but only do ProRes.

On the DJI website, it says it will take up to 7 -8 min of footage in Cinema DNG and 13 min for ProRes with 120GB one... It's totally enough for me at the moment.
But I was told it will work only with 480GB CineSSD... a bit weird.

RAW DNG files are extremely large.  120GB will not hold more than 5 minutes of footage.  Furthermore, DNG is extremely annoying to deal with in post.  Save the $1000 and buy the ProRes license.  It easily integrates into Premiere and has a much smaller file size.

All three SSDs can use ProRes and CinemaDNG, but the 128GB one can only do certain resolutions. You would look at each one to see if the limitation is alright for you.

So i recently got the 240gb for cinema dng and adobe. After each video i take its only saving to my micro sd instead of my ssd. When i plug my ssd in the computer it shows pics from the video taken not the actual video. Please help.

CinemaDNG is image sequences not video straight away.
You need to import the dng images into premiere trough the media browser. You can't just import it like normal footage as Premiere will then import it as a picture. In the media browser check the first image and the checkbox for image sequence.
It will then create a video sequence, which will be availabe in your project folder.
