Best SD Memory Cards for Sony a6400
The Sony a6400 features only one SD card slot that supports only UHS-I SD cards, and it is capable of 4K video recording and high speed shooting at up to 11 fps with AF/AE tracking. So, if you are a vlogger or like 4K video recording and burst shooting, a fast and reliable U3 capable SD card is a must for you. Although the UHS-II SD cards can be used in Sony a6400 in UHS-I model, you can’t get any extra write speed (fast buffer clearing time) from the UHS-II SD cards. So, we highly suggest you pick up the SanDisk Extreme PRO UHS-I Card (170 MB/s) from the list below. But, if you want to get the ultra high read speeds (transfer speed), you can choose the UHS-II SD cards.
