SD card speed

Recommended Posts

You don't specify which camera and which settings you are using however this sounds like some other problem rather than card speed - a continuous burst will fill the buffer before it throttles because of card write speed and that should be more that 2 or 3 shots. The X-PRO2 supports UHS-II so you could try one of the recommended faster UHS-II cards such as the SanDisk Extreme Pro 300MB/sec or the Sony G series - faster for bursts but only once the buffer has filled.

Thanks

I'm working to figure this out. Funny these cards are faster enough in my Nikons just slow in my X Pro-2. I've done a reset of the shooting settings, but something's still eluding me. I love the Fuji for its size and weight. but the menu is clear as mud.

I've spent 10 of years with Nikon hardware and only 2-3 with Fuji so the intricacies of the Fuji menu leave me in the dust.

To help I've ordered a pair of faster SDs, Lexar 64 GB/1000X, for the Fuji - should help. Now I need to dig into the menu to see what the bleep is going on.

I have 2 of these Lexar uhs-II 1000x and they are slower than Sandisk uhs-I v30; prove them on both x-t1 and now on x-t2. I did not do a technical test, just normal usage test and i get slower write-in with the Lexar. Lexar and Sandisk uhs-II 300mb are both so expensive and not worth the expense for me for just still photos.

The free ATTO disk benchmark can test you cards but your computers card-reader will influence the speed if it is not fast enough or not USB 3 - however it will still give you a good indication of card health: https://www.atto.com/disk-benchmark/

Write speed is usually not given because they are often a lot lower than the useless read speed.

    • Search your manual for "PRE-AF" option. If ON camera should focus without pressing release botton.
    • Thanks, Willtoride. It's beginning to make sense to me now. I guess I was really stressing the CPU.
    • Just got the new X-S10. I don't think you have a forum for the X-s10 yet. Hopefully this is the right place to post. I'm confused about how autofocus works. I'm sure it is similar on all X models. Before I bought, I watched tons of videos on youtube about the X-S10 and when they tested the autofocus, they would walk away or towards the camera so you could see the focus adjust. Now that I got the camera, I'm baffled. (1) AutoFocus doesn't seem to happen automatically but you have t
    • I have only been able to get the XWebcam and XWebcam2 to work on my Macbook Pro )mid 2012, Catalina) with QuickTime Player Capture video without controls of the XWebcam software and with XWebcam/XWebcam2.  I have been able to get it to work with Zoom only. Not FaceTime, not Skype, not Google Meeting. My old Logitech Webcam work with everything also.
    • 4k 60fps 400Mbps means you're using the H265 codec. It's very cpu/gpu intensive. My 2016 MBP struggles to play H265 smoothly but my main editing machine plays them back fine, so this could be the issue you're seeing. Try H264, which will limit you to 200Mbps or maybe create proxies.
