Best SD Memory Cards for Fujifilm X-Pro2

Although Fujifilm released the X-Pro3 recently and it’s a great camera, the X-Pro2 is still a pretty good choice, especially if you’re trying to save some money. It packs an excellent 24MP sensor along with a stylish range-finder style body. If you don’t care too much about video features (this camera shoots 1080p at up to 60 fps) and some other extra features of the X-Pro3, you can save quite a bit of money by getting the older X-Pro2. That being said, let’s take a look at the best memory cards for Fujifilm X-Pro2.

Best SD Cards for Fujifilm X-Pro2

The X-Pro2 was the first mirrorless camera to feature two memory card slots. Not only that, but it was also one of the first to implement UHS-II card support. To be more specific, one of the slots supports fast UHS-II cards, while the other one is limited to UHS-I speeds.

You don’t necessarily need UHS-II cards for this camera, but if you want to get optimal performance when burst shooting, we suggest that you grab one UHS-II card. Since the other slot supports only UHS-I cards, you can grab one or more UHS-I cards (since they are cheaper), for that slot. Anyway, here are the best SD cards for Fujifilm X-Pro2.

UHS II Cards:

Sony Tough-G Series SDXC 128GB UHS-II U3 Up to 299 MB/s Up to 300 MB/s

Recommended SD Cards for Video on Fujifilm X-Pro2

Like we already mentioned, this camera is geared towards photographers so video features are pretty limited (1080p at up to 60 fps). The codec X-Pro2 uses is quite undemanding, so basically any UHS-I card mentioned above will easily handle it.

Conclusion

If you’re into photography, don’t care much about video features and are into old-school cameras, you’ll love the X-Pro2. We hope our guide helped you pick the right memory card for your X-Pro2.
