Best SD Memory Cards for Canon EOS M6

Canon recently released EOS M6 Mark II, and although it is a great camera, the previous model can now be purchased for at a discount. The M6 has a 24MP sensor (compared to 32.5MP on the Mark II), but that should be enough for beginner photographers. Keep in mind that video recording options are much better on the new model, so if shooting video is your main priority perhaps you should go with the Mark II. However, if you need an affordable camera for photography, the M6 is a pretty solid choice. That being said, let’s take a look at some of the best memory cards for Canon M6.

Best SD Cards for Canon M6

Firstly, the M6 comes with one memory card slot that supports UHS-I cards. That means that you don’t need to spend money or more expensive UHS-II cards (which is another additional cost you need to consider, if you go with the newer M6 Mark II model). Without further ado, here are the best SD cards for Canon EOS M6.

UHS-I Cards:
SanDisk Extreme PRO 128GB UHS-I U3 V30 Up to 90 MB/s Up to 170 MB/s
Kingston Canvas React 128GB UHS-I U3 Up to 80 MB/s Up to 100 MB/s
Transcend 128GB UHS-I U3 Up to 60 MB/s Up to 95 MB/s

Recommended SD Cards for Video on Canon M6

The M6 takes solid 1080p at up to 60 fps, but unfortunately doesn’t record in 4K. If you need 4K video recording, perhaps you should look into the M6 Mark II or M50. Since video recording on this camera is limited to 1080p at up to 60 fps, any memory card from the list above will handle it with ease.


If you’re a beginner looking for an entry-level camera, the M6 offers a lot of value for the price. This is especially true now that the Mark II is out and the M6 is available at a discounted price. We hope this article helped you pick the right memory card for your Canon M6.
