The overall performance of your camera can be greatly decreased by using an incorrect SD memory card.

Best SD Cards

SD memory cards have come way down in price the time since the launch of the Fujifilm X-A2.

With the price range being affordable, it doesn’t be smart to purchase anything but a professional-level memory card.

SanDisk Extreme Pro, Lexar Professional, and PNY Elite Performance cards have all worked well for me. I have never encountered data errors or a card break with any of those SD cards.

Every problem I have experienced has been with cheap unbranded cards. Seeking to save a little bit of money is not worthwhile if your X-A2 is likely to experience complications.

A shrewd way to spend less money is to buy a smaller storage capacity SD card from a high-quality company. That way, you will not have to be worried about the images stored on the card.

Speed, Class, & UHS Ratings

Card Speed

The speed rating of an SD memory card is based on the continuous write and read transfer speeds of the card. The speed of a card is very important for continuous shooting and video.

Slows memory cards can cut down the number of continuous photos the Fujifilm X-A2 can take. This is because the camera’s buffer is not able to write to the card quickly enough.

With video, a slow SD card can cause an unexpected end to recording. The video file might also end up being corrupted. If you intend to record video, it is important the SD card you use meets the required minimum write speed for video.

Card read speed is important for file transfers to a computer. If you are filling up cards with images or video, a card with a fast read speed will cut down on the transfer time.

Speed Class Rating

SD Card Speed Class

The Class rating of a memory card is determined by the sustained write speed. SD cards that have a minimum write speed of at least 10MB/s will be rated Class 10.

  • Class 2 - 2MB/s
  • Class 4 - 4MB/s
  • Class 6 - 6MB/s
  • Class 8 - 8MB/s
  • Class 10 - 10MB/s or faster

Every brand-name SD memory card that you can purchase online will be Class 10. To discover the class rating of a SD card, search for a number inside of the C on the front.

Ultra High Speed (UHS)

Example of UHS Rating

The Ultra High Speed bus (UHS) is built into SDHC, SDXC, and SDUC memory cards. UHS cards to have increased write speeds.

Three different specifications have been made. They are UHS-I, UHS-II, and UHS-III.

Look at the front of the memory card to find out the UHS rating of a memory card. A Roman numeral I, II, or III on the front of the memory card, that will be the UHS rating of your memory card.

  • UHS-I - Maximum transfer rate of 104 MB/s
  • UHS-II - Maximum transfer rate of 312 MB/s
  • UHS-III - Maximum transfer rate of 624 MB/s

If you needed choose one, the 64GB SanDisk Extreme Pro is the best memory card for the Fujifilm X-A2. You are now also prepared for any future camera you buy.
