Test is OK, but i strongly rerecorded Sandisk, in history LEXAR (but i find some issue)
It is easy, in SSD best chip make SAMSUNG - and all other SSD is sh* - exept intel 😉

In SD card only some brand make chip and all other buy it a create own, often is diff. controller and some patentet feture.

All camera have compatibility list, everytime sandisk a sometime lexar and this is END.
For old camera is maybe OK kingston - in CF - on D200 work perfectly, on D810 - card error if rou use continous sghooting

SD is more funny, because never report error a continue - this is video feture, don't stop, drop some data and work - special Adata, patriot etc. is funny, if you do continuous shooting or make video etc, no card error detected, but you lose data, corrupter RAW, on standrad shooting all work - don't experiment 😉

SD is: SanDisk, Panasonic (Matsushita), Toshiba and SONY - this brand is in SD consortium, next profi brand is LEXAR, but is more expansive that sandisk - i prefer sandisk_pro UHS-I (excellent product and cost good money, yep UHS-II is better, but cost double)

For slow device alternative relative work, but we use UHS-I/II - and this is diff. story.

Why is alternative garbage ? - because buy all and only consortium own patent for controllers etc. - if alternative buy everything, then cost more that sandisk - uups, what he do?, he buy alternative controller - save money, cost less, but is only trouble maker - now you know it and buy what you want, but never say that i don't warning you 😉

Test on link is completely bad (X-T5)- why? because diff. capacity - more capacity, more speed - because SD write data parallel - yep it defend how many memory chip is inside, often bigger capacity - more same chip's inside.

Buy same Sandisk speed family but 64-1TB and test it 😉 - i check why is SANDISK slower - yep 64GB VS 256GB and 512GB

but i often don't care about peak speed, i care about long speed with-ought OS buffer and reliability - if is speed sufficient for application (for example video - but you know, nobody write video to SD, professionals use some like atmos ninja and write through HDMI to inside SSD disk)

    • Very rare, but lens is WR and Red Badge so it should not happen with brand new lens. Maybe i'll try send it to Fuji service center. I had similar problem with new x-h2s which had a smudge visible on photos even on very wide apertures and send it to fuji becasue blowing and cleaning by swabs not helped. They change filter on the sensor under warranty and now everything is ok.
    • I have read so much thru the months (years?) re: sharpening fuji files (XTrans sensor) and everyone seems to have an answer.   Here are some questions/comments for clarification: 1. If one is printing, does the issue of Fuji file sharpening in LR go away?  I know there is some basic sharpening etc. I heard that the sharpening issue is more for the website or posting.  2. If I use enhance and it creates a DNG file, the issue of 'worms' is a moot point, correct?  the file is no longer an Xtrans file. 3. Is it better to sharpen in PS versus LR? 4. Here Is MY LATEST APPROACH to SHARPENIING for a website.  Use enhance and it creates a DNG file.  Go to DETAIL in LR.   Bring detail to 0 or way down from default 25 ( some say this is where the oversharpening occurs) Change Radius from .5-1.0 Mask:  Some say approx 30%.  others say 80%  Amount of sharpening:  Anywhere from 30% on up??  This is also confusing.  It would be great to get clarification from Fuji - it creates a lot of confusion. I want to stick with Lightroom.       
    • Hi, this is my first post here I've created an online catalog and hope you enjoy it. All pictures taken with my X-T3 and a XF 80 lens: https://mount-sushi.com/netsuke/gallery/index.html Suggestions for improvement etc. are welcome. I'm not a professional photographer, and these sculptures are really small ... Thank you.
    • Hi Friends - I have been using Fuji XT2 since 2017. Only recently, the Fujifilm Camera Remote app for android is causing a problem. Every time I connect the Camera Remote app to my XT2, the picture format shifts to square format. Now, we know, there is no setting to change the picture format in the Camera Remote app. I am unable to use the Camera Remote app, as square is not a format I need to shoot in. Any suggestions will be of great help! Some information: I am using One Plus phone, and the version of my Camera Remote app is 4.6.1 (build
