Best SD Cards for Canon T6

Firstly, this is an entry-level camera, so it doesn’t come as a surprise it comes with only one SD card slot. UHS-I memory cards are supported by the T6, and they are plenty fast for anything this camera can throw at it. Even some older and slower cards should work with T6, but we suggest sticking with UHS-I cards. Here are some of the best SD cards for Canon EOS Rebel T6 (1300D).

UHS-I Cards:
SanDisk Extreme PRO 128GB UHS-I U3 V30 Up to 90 MB/s Up to 170 MB/s
Kingston Canvas Select Plus 128GB UHS-I V30 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 T6

The T6 has very modest video specs in today’s terms. It can shoot 1080p video at up to 30 fps and 720p video at 60 fps. This means that any memory card from the list above will handle video recording on Canon T6 with ease.


If you’re a beginner looking to buy their first “real” camera and don’t want to spend a lot of money, the T6 should be one of your top choices. We hope this article helped you find the right SD card for your Canon T6.
