Best SD Cards for Fujifilm X-Pro3

Just like the X-T3, this camera also comes with two memory card slots, both of which support super-fast UHS-II cards. If you’re working with a smaller budget, you can still get a UHS-I card, but we wouldn’t recommend it. If you want to get the optimal performance our of this mirrorless camera, especially when it comes to burst shooting, we suggest grabbing at least one or two UHS-II cards. Here are the best SD cards for Fuji X-Pro3.

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-Pro3

Like we previously mentioned, this camera is really aimed at photographers. Having said that, it can shoot 4K at up to 30 fps (although limited to 15 mins per clip). There are two codecs you can choose from – 100 Mbit/s (12.5 MB/s) or 200 Mbit/s (25 MB/s). Most UHS-I cards can handle both, although we’d still use a UHS-II card for the second codec.

Conclusion

Just like its predecessor, Fujifilm X-Pro3 offers a very unique experience with its hybrid EVF/OVF combo paired with an amazing sensor. Photographers who want a modern camera with retro looks should definitely consider this camera. We hope our guide helped you pick the right memory card for the X-Pro3.
