Best Memory Card For The Nikon D5500

  25.06.2016   Alik   Memory Cards   No comments

The Nikon D5500 is similar to other Nikon entry level cameras as well as Sony cameras in that it has very slow memory card interface speeds. Because of this, memory card write speeds seem to bottleneck at speeds close to around 28MB/s. However because of the single processor, some memory cards still do perform much faster than others.

With the Fujifilm X70 being the little sister to the X100T, it shares a lot of the same characteristics. The sensor works the same, the speed of the processor is about the same, even the speed at which it writes to memory cards are all very close. The main difference is the X70 is a lot smaller and it has a wider lens.

If you’re looking for the best memory card or you want the fastest memory card for the Fujifilm X70, there are only a few options. Several brands perform wildly different so it’s important to find the best memory card for you camera so you never run into wait times as your buffer clears.

The Nikon D7200 gives photographers everything they could want from an APS-C camera in a DSLR body (minus 4k video) and at a great price. While not Nikon’s flagship APS-C camera, it does deliver on specs. It’s quick, it has a great sensor and it’s an all around very durable camera.

To find the best memory cards for the Nikon D7200, we put it through the memory card speed test and the results were surprising. 

Best Memory Cards For Your Camera

Not all memory cards are created equal. Not only are different types of memory cards made in different factories like in Japan, China, some in Taiwan and some in Korea, but they also perform differently from each other.

Some camera brands don’t like certain brands of memory cards. For instance Sony cameras typically don’t like Transcend cards, and I’ve seen on various occasions different Transcend cards completely crash various Sony cameras. However they’ll perform excellent in other brands on cameras like Fujifilm.

This of course has less to do with the memory card and more to do with the cameras reads and writes with card. For instance Sony cameras are notoriously bad with the way they deal with memory cards and they are the slowest performing cameras on the market because they have very slow memory bus speeds. But this is rumored to change with the new Alpha cameras.

I’ve compiled a list of all the most popular memory card tests by camera brand. These tests include how each memory card performs in camera as well as how they perform with USB speeds. This list continues to grow thanks to you.

The X-Pro 2 is the first of Fujifilm cameras to feature dual SD memory card slots. With slot 1 capable of UHS-II and slot 2 using UHS-I, the performance and configuration options make this camera very impressive. I’ve tested all the most popular UHS-I and UHS-II memory cards to determine the best SD memory card for the X-Pro 2.

This camera continues to impress me and Fujifilm has really done an excellent job in making sure it’s packed with all the latest tech they could get their hands on.

For the family of Canon T6 cameras, the T6s is higher end model with a few extra cosmetic features. When it comes to memory card performance, the Canon T6s performs pretty much the same as the T6 and T6i with slight variations that are normal when doing SD memory card tests.

Best Canon T6i Memory Cards

  8.03.2016   Alik   Memory Cards   No comments

The Canon T6i (or the Canon 750D) is the less expensive little brother to the T6s and the T6i. When it comes to memory card write speeds, the T6i performs about the same as the other two models. Like the other T6 and T6s, the T6i does not have a very large buffer, so it will be important to get the fastest memory card you can in order to avoid wait time when clearing the buffer.
