Best SD Memory Cards for Fujifilm X100V

Fujifilm X100V is a successor to the X100F, a very popular fixed lens camera. Just like its predecessor, it comes with a built-in 23mm f/2 lens (35mm equivalent). However, it has been redesigned to improve corner sharpness and close-up performance. The X100V also sports a 26MP X-Trans sensor, found on cameras like the X-T3 and X-T30. This is an amazing compact camera for photographers, but it’s a capable video camera as well. With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the best memory cards for Fujifilm X100V.

Best SD Cards for Fujifilm X100V

First of all, the X100V comes with one memory card slot, which supports UHS-I cards. We wish it came with a UHS-II slot like the X-T3, but the camera is not as demanding so UHS-I makes more sense and helps Fujifilm keep the costs lower. This also means there’s no point in getting a UHS-II card for the X100V unless you own (or plan on buying) an X-T3 or another camera that supports it. Having said that, here are the best SD cards for Fujifilm X100V.

UHS-I Cards:

SanDisk Extreme PRO 128GB UHS-I U3 V30 Up to 90 MB/s Up to 170 MB/s

Recommended SD Cards for Video on Fujifilm X100V

The old X100F wasn’t a really capable video recording camera, but the X100V can record 4K video at up to 30 fps using a 200 Mbit/s (25 Mb/s) codec. It can also shoot 1080p at up to 120 fps. This means that if you plan on shooting 4K videos with your X100V you shouldn’t buy cheap UHS-I cards, as they may not be able to maintain minimum write speeds necessary for the X100V’s codec. Instead, grab one of the cards mentioned above and you’ll be set.

Conclusion

The X100V definitely looks like an amazing camera for people who don’t mind having just one lens. This camera is an amazing tool for travel and street photography, but capable in the video department as well. We hope our guide helped you find the right memory card for your Fujifilm X100V.
