Best Micro SD Memory Cards for Sony RX0 Mark II

The RX0 Mark II is an update to Sony’s action camera, and it offers several important upgrades over the original. It still features the same 15MP 1-inch sensor paired with a 24mm f/4 equivalent lens, but it can now record videos in 4K (at up to 30 fps) internally. Of course, all the slow-motion recording options are still here. When it comes to shooting in slow-motion, the footage looks quite good at up to 240 fps, but you can technically record videos at up to 960 fps with a huge quality loss.

Of course, you still get a waterproof, shockproof, and dustproof camera, but it now comes with a new screen, which can now be flipped up to face you. Now that we’ve covered some of the most important features of this action camera, let’s take a look at some of the best memory cards for Sony RX0 Mark II.

Best MicroSD Cards for Sony RX0 II Action Camera

First of all, you should know that the RX0 comes with a single microSD card slot that supports UHS-I cards. Like we already mentioned, the RX0 Mark II supports 4K video recording at up to 30 fps.

The most demanding codec this camera uses requires 100 Mbit/s (12.5 MB/s) of data throughput, twice that of what the original RX0 required. This means you’ll get much more data to work with, which should lead to better colors and details. When it comes to memory cards, the new codec doesn’t change much – a UHS-I card will handle it with ease. With that in mind, here are the best microSD cards for Sony RX0.

MEMORY CARD WRITE SPEED READ SPEED GET CARD
SanDisk Extreme microSDXC 128GB UHS-I Up to 90 MB/s Up to 170 MB/s
Samsung EVO MicroSDXC 128GB UHS-I Up to 90 MB/s Up to 100 MB/s

Finally, let’s discuss the memory card size you should get. If you plan on recording a lot of footage or simply don’t want to format your card after every little trip you take, we definitely suggest a 128 GB microSD card. Otherwise, you’ll probably be fine with a 64GB or two. We hope that our guide helped you find the right microSD card for your Sony RX0 Mark II.
