Best SD Memory Cards for Fuji X100V

Considering that this is essentially a compact camera, it’s not surprising that it comes with one SD card slot that supports only UHS-I cards. Of course, you can use faster UHS-II cards as well, but there wouldn’t be any benefits. However, it makes sense to buy UHS-II cards if you also own an X-T3 or a similar camera. Without further ado, here are the best memory cards for Fuji X100V.

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

SD CARD READ SPEED WRITE SPEED SEE PRICE
SanDisk Extreme PRO 128GB UHS-I U3 V30 Up to 170 MB/s Up to 90 MB/s
Kingston Canvas React 128GB UHS-I U3 Up to 100 MB/s Up to 80 MB/s
Transcend 64GB UHS-I U3 Up to 95 MB/s Up to 60 MB/s

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

Sony Tough-G Series 128GB UHS-II U3 Up to 300 MB/s Up to 299 MB/s
Lexar Professional 2000X 128GB SDXC UHS-II U3 Up to 300 MB/s Up to 260 MB/s
SanDisk Extreme Pro 128GB UHS-II U3 Up to 300 MB/s Up to 260 MB/s

Recommended SD Cards for 4K Video on Fuji X100V

Unlike its predecessor, the X100V is quite capable when it comes to video recording. It can shoot 4K video at up to 30 fps, along with 1080p at up to 120 fps. The maximum bitrate it uses is 200 Mbit/s (25 MB/s), which means that you should use the fastest UHS-I cards available. If you have some older cards laying around, they may not be fast enough to support constant minimum write speeds required by this codec.

Conclusion

If you’re looking for a fixed-lens camera that looks great and takes amazing photos and videos, Fuji X100V should be on the top of your list. We hope this article helped you choose the right SD card for this camera.
