Transcend cards not working in X-T4

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

I just received an X-T4 as a gift and tried using a couple of new Transcend V90 cards with it. 

https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1431179-REG

The first one is completely dead. The second recorded stills, but when I tried to import, 18 out of 40 images failed to import into Lightroom. When I looked at them in the finder, they don’t have any data in the files  

 

I’ve head great success with these cards in my Panasonic LUMIX bodies.
 

What cards are you all using with success?

I use with my X-T4 two Sony Tough SF-G64T, V90 UHS-II 300 MB/s Read/Write, 64 MB SD cards, set in camera settings for "backup" so both JPG (fine) and RAW files are saved to both cards, it is a backup on second card. Sony has also a 128GB card, SF-G128T. I formatted both my SD cards in camera (formatted them with the cards in their slots in the camera, with the cameras  own function Format) before I used them.
Here is Fujifilm compatibility list for SD cards to use with X-T4:
https://fujifilm-x.com/global/support/compatibility/cameras/x-t4/
I see no reason why Your Transcend 64GB 700S UHS-II SDXC SD card should not work, maybe reformat the card(s) when it sit in the camera slot(s).

One thing I did not know before on SD cards, I read it some days ago for the Sony Tough cards:

SD Scan Utility
Over time all SD card memory wears out and the card stops recording data reliably. Sony's SD Scan Utility regularly and automatically scans your SD memory cards and lets you know before they reach their limits.

Check here for compatible cards.  You can ONLY use these cards with the XT-4:

Notice that on Sony G-series SD cards it is two slight different specs: non T (non Tough) and T (Tough).
Few difference between them I have found out is:

1) Durability:
SF-G (non T):
Shockproof, Temperature Extremes, Waterproof, X-Ray Proof

SF-GT (T=Tought):
Shockproof, Temperature Extremes, Waterproof, X-Ray Proof
Dustproof, Magnet-Proof, Static Proof, UV Light Resistant

That is one reason why the Tough SD card is little more expensive, I use SF-64GT but it is also available SF-64G (without T).

2) Write speed:

On non T it is 30 MB/s write speed (but still 300 MB/s read speed), on the T cards it is both read and write speed 300 MB/s.

It might be some other minor differences like built-in Write-Protect Switch is not there on the T SD cards.
It is also 5 year warranty on the Sony T SD cards (note sure how long warranty on the non T SD cards).

Did you format the cards in camera? If the cards work in the Panasonic they should work in the Fuji.

You really shouldn't be getting these types of problem with any modern SD card.

I did put both cards in the Fuji to format. 1 failed, the other formatted but failed to record all the images I took.

B&H authorized a return. So I'll look at either cards recommended by Fuji

Just wanted to let You know that the Sony SF-G...T (can be 32, 64 or 128GB) is compatible with Fujifilm X-T4 camera.
I just got that confirmed with Fujifilm Nordic support when I asked for clarification on the "Tough" (= ...T) SD cards from Sony.
I have two Sony SF-G64T SD cards for use in XT-4.

To to summarize, these Sony SD cards are compatible with X-T4:
a) According to Fujifilm SD cards compatibility list for XT-4 on their homepage:
SF-G32
SF-G64
SF-G128

b) According to Fujifilm support:
SF-G32T
SF-G64T
SF-G128T

As I wrote in an earlier post that these are the main differences between Sony G-series non T and T SD cards:
 

1) Durability:
SF-G (non T):
Shockproof, Temperature Extremes, Waterproof, X-Ray Proof

SF-GT (T=Tought):
Shockproof, Temperature Extremes, Waterproof, X-Ray Proof
Dustproof, Magnet-Proof, Static Proof, UV Light Resistant

That is one reason why the Tough SD card is little more expensive.
 

2) Write speed:
On non T it is 30 MB/s write speed (but still 300 MB/s read speed), on the T cards it is both read and write speed 300 MB/s.

It is some other minor differences like built-in Write-Protect Switch is not there on the T SD cards.
It is also 5 year warranty on the Sony T SD cards (not sure how long warranty on the non T SD cards).

I just try to give facts, I do not say the Sony SF-G...T cards are good or anything.
Just want to say they are compatible with X-T4 camera, so that is crystal clear just in case someone (like me) hovered a bit in obscurity if the Sony Tough cards really was compatible with XT-4.
 The full specs on the Sony G-series Tough SD cards is here for anyone interested:

Those are the cards that Fuji says will work, not the only ones that will.

Any card that is compatible with the SD card spec should work, but buying from that list means you're buying known-good cards.

Exactly the point though.  You should follow their recommendations.

      Has anyone tried to adapt a Canon TS-E lens to any Fuji body? I'm specifically thinking about getting the 17mm for my X-T4, however I'm still weighing up the cost against the diminishing returns.
      In general, how viable is adapting full-frame tilt-shift onto APS-C bodies? As far as I understand, on top of the focal length being increased by the crop factor, the shift range is also reduced by the same factor. So in the case of the 17mm, I would technically only have a maximum shift of 7-8mm. Is this correct? If so, is that still enough for a moderate amount of in-camera correction? I'm not expecting to capture a skyscraper from the across the street, but something that will cover the majority of cases.
      Finally, are there any alternative solutions I should consider?

      Since the last firmware update to v.1.02, face detection has not been working properly on my X-T4. It activates only occasionally, and then jumps around.
      I've tried it with the XF35 F2 and XF16-80 F4, and experienced the same problem with both lenses.
      Has anyone had a similar problem?
    • By bpmccammon
      After updating the X-T4 firmware to v1.02 my camera now locks up after turning it on.  The LCD view is live but the EVF does not work and all buttons on the camera are locked. After about 10 seconds the EVF and buttons begin to work as normal. I don't think I am alone with this problem and I hope a fix is coming soon.  Not good.

      Hi all, this is my first post on here and a complete amateur to boot. I am very keen to buy a new camera that I will enjoy shooting with and obviously I'd like the best image quality available, so can any of you guys please advise on any thoughts, ideas based on your experiences with these cameras for the kind of shooting I want to achieve, and any images to back suggestions up is of course more than welcome, thank you in advance guys.
      PS, just wanted to say my budget is around £2750 gbp, for a camera, and 2 lenses if possible.📷👍😀

      I just upgraded to the t4 (from the t2) and have some questions about Fuji’s approach to multiple exposures(ME).  On the t2, we were limited to 2 layers and when you were satisfied with the finished image, the blended pic was saved and the source images were deleted.  In the t4, we’re allowed up to 9 layers, which is lovely, but when you finish with the ME, the source Images are still on the card.  The MEs are in the standard JPG format, the source pix are RAW so are much bigger.  Hence, they eat up a LOT of valuable card real estate.  
      I have scoured the manual and this forum to see if anyone knows if there is a s/w switch to enable the source file clean-up, but have not found anything.  So who do I contact/ask to find out if a) there is such a switch, and b) if there isn’t, how best to make the suggestion to Fuji?
