Best SD Cards for Fuji X-Pro2

The X-Pro2 was released in early 2016 and it packs the same 24MP APS-C sensor as the Fuji X-T2. It is a range-finder style camera aimed mainly at photographers, but it does shoot video in 1080p at up to 60 fps. What’s really interesting about this camera is the fact that it has both optical and electronic viewfinders. It was also the first mirrorless camera to feature two SD card slots. With that said, let’s take a look at the best SD cards for Fuji X-Pro2.

Best SD Memory Cards for Fuji X-Pro2

Like we already mentioned, the X-Pro2 has two SD card slots, one of which supports fast UHS-II cards, while the other one supports UHS-I cards. Keep in mind that UHS-II cards are quite a bit faster than UHS-I SD cards, but they are also pricier. For optimal results, our suggestion would be to grab one of each.

Recommended SD Cards for 4K Video Recording on Fuji X-Pro2

This isn’t really a camera for serious videography, but it does shoot 1080p video at up to 60 fps. The codec is pretty undemanding, which means that any of the cards mentioned above will be able to handle video recording on the X-Pro2 with ease.

Conclusion

If you’re looking for a unique mirrorless camera that has that old rangefinder vibe to it or are intrigued by the unique optical/electronic viewfinder combo, this may be a great camera for you. As far as SD cards go, we’d definitely grab one UHS-II card to get the optimal performance from the slot that supports it, and one UHS-I card that you can either use for video or for backup. Enjoy shooting with your X-Pro2!
