Best SD Cards for Fuji X-A7

In early September of 2019, Fuji released their new entry-level camera – the X-A7. Just like in their most affordable cameras of the past, the X-A7 also uses a Bayer sensor instead of Fuji’s very own X-Trans array. However, this won’t matter much to beginners that this camera is aimed towards, as it’s capable of taking great photos and videos, and actually packs some pretty advanced features considering its price. It has a 24MP sensor, a large fully-articulating touchscreen, and can record 4K videos at up to 30 fps. With that said, let’s take a look at some of the best SD cards for Fuji X-A7.

Best Memory Cards for Fuji X-A7

Like most of cheaper cameras in Fuji’s lineup, the X-A7 has one SD card slot that supports UHS-I cards. This means that there’s no real need to buy more expensive UHS-II cards unless you plan on upgrading to the X-T3 or newer camera in the future.

UHS-I SD cards (ranked by write speeds):

SanDisk Extreme PRO 128GB UHS-I U3 V30 Up to 170 MB/s Up to 90 MB/s

Recommended SD Cards for 4K Video on Fuji X-A7

The X-A7’s predecessor could record 4K video but only at up to 15 fps, so we’re really excited to see that the new model can actually shoot 4K at up to 30 fps. It can also record 1080p video at up to 60 fps. Codecs that this entry-level camera uses aren’t demanding at all, meaning that any SD card from the list above will handle it with ease.

Conclusion

We believe that the X-A7 is great mirrorless camera for beginners who are interested in joining the Fuji family but doesn’t have the money for X-T3 or X-T30. It can take great photos as well as videos, and it’s extremely lightweight, making it a great choice for travel photography as well. Choosing the right SD card for the X-A7 is not that difficult as the camera isn’t that demanding, and we hope our article made it even easier for you.
