Recommended SD Cards for Fujifilm XT-4

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

I am planning to purchase the new FujiFilm XT-4 when it is available in NL. 

With the launch of the XT-4 FujiFilm removed the supported SD Cards from the compatibility section on their website.
The link is still present on the XT-3 specifications website but the link is not working anymore

* 1 Please see the Fujifilm website to check memory card compatibility
https://www.fujifilm.com/support/digital_cameras/compatibility/card/x/?_ga=2.36026537.881780981.1588514698-1422211324.1588514698  

I am planning to shoot both video and stills, and I selected two SD cards of 128 GB SDXC V90 UHS-II on their specifications and price

Does anyone have any experience with those SD cards?
Is there any way I can verify with FujiFilm which 128 GB SDXC V90 UHS-II are supported or recommended by them?

I have used the ProGrade card on my X-T3 and been happy with the results.

The only curious problem I had was in mixing SanDisk and Prograde UHS-II cards in different slots.

So based on that experience I'd get two copies of the same card.

(Even for the X-T3 the specific card recommendations from Fuji were outdated)

Yeah according to Ken Wheeler who fixed cameras, and used/owned almost every lens, Lexar is trash.  

Search YouTube videos:  All FUJIFILM.....please STOP sticking LEXAR SD cards in your Fuji.

In a email he said "USE SANDISK 300/MB ONLY".  Avoid "Prograde", and especially "Sony" and Lexar.

Until Sandisk gets their head out of their backside and makes faster cards we will just have to make due.

Some bonus advice (search YouTube)
ALL Mirrorless DON'T Please DON'T burn your mirrorless sensor!
Angry Photographer: THANKS LEXAR!! .....for BRICKING my DSLR....trash cards

I mainly use Lexar and have no problem at all ! Stop promotting only Sandisk in many threads which is not more reliable than Lexar, Proglide, Sony, etc ! Ken Wheeler is not a guru !

I am just about to buy some new sd cards for my new X-T4. I have been using 128 GB Lexar UHS-II in my X-T3 and 1 for a few years and had no problems. This thread is interesting. I've only ever had one card fail which I believe was Transcend but I was able to recover all the files. Maybe I'm lucky but I guess any card can fail, luck of the draw if you buy a decent branded product

I am happy with my ProGrade Digital 128GB UHS-II SDXC Memory Cards.

The only error notification I recieved lately is described below. But the images are stored on the card anyway ... so it is not really a problem.

      Hello,
      Well after I upgraded a few days ago, I just found out I can not record video. I have never had a problem with my cards, which include a Sandisk Extreme and Sandisk Ultra.
      Any suggestions?
      Thanks.

      And Sony's latest debacle.

      The only photography channel I trust, has never lied about recommendations, or camera lenses and other camera accessories; Proclaims that Sandisk is the only card that people should use.  However, they are sticking to the slow, and useless V30, (useless) instead of making a V90 SDXC card for the XT-4.  Not saying it is a bad card, or bad card company, just not good enough for 4K with 400mbps video that the XT-4 can produce.

      The petition is this:  Work with Sandisk so they can give full quality SDXC cards for video use.  By that I mean V90 Sandisk SDXC cards.  People are paying big money for the junk V90 SDXC cards.  With the amount of money they are paying for the XT-4, they should get the full quality.  Not half the quality they pay for.

      Hi all, 
       
      I hope someone out there can help me figure out how to get my SD card out of my XT1??? First, I'm not new, I've been using 2 XT1's for over a year. Yesterday I shot a big job for an Interior Designer and this morning when I went to copy the images the SD card will not come out. When I push on the card to eject it, there is NO movement, normally it pushes down a little then pops up. This card is stuck, no movement. I'm very nervous as I have a very important job on that card and can't risk looking any images.
       
      Please can anyone advise me how to get the card out without damaging the card?
       
      Thank you!

      Do both slots have to be used when shooting? I was unable to take images when one of the slots was empty.
       
      Thanx, FujiJoe

    • But... You can't monitor audio and power the camera from the same usb port. I've tried several splitter options and none of them work; leaving me to monitor audio with their usb dongle and pull that if I have to power the camera with my monitor battery usb out. When shooting video a camera is fully caged, with matte box, rails and follow focus. You don't want to change a battery out. You pretty much have to tear down your rig to do that...  
    • 23 f2 quite better of 23 1.4 is laughly.
    • Is it too heavy for the little camera? thanks  
    • Go to SETUP (spanner symbol)  - Save Data Setup  - Copyright Information - change the information on Copyright and Author here) It is well buried I have to admit but this should solve your problem.  Peter    
    • Hi Ken, Have you considered trying Davinci Resolve?  I have used it with 4K H.265 4:2:0 generated with an X-T3.  Color grading tools are excellent.  Works well on a Mac.  But I know there is Windows version.  You can download the very powerful freeware version 17 that has no time limits to see if it works for you.
