Best SD Memory Cards for Fujifilm X-T2

Although the X-T3 is a better camera (especially for video shooters) than the X-T2, the older sibling still offers a lot of value for the price, as it’s often heavily discounted. The camera features a 24MP APS-C, solid autofocus, 4K video recording and more. The autofocus is a bit slower and less precise than on the X-T3, but this is less noticeable if you’re not shooting video. That being said, let’s check out some of the best memory cards for Fujifilm X-T2.
