The Fujifilm X-T5 is the new flagship of the T series and brings a lot, if unfortunately not all, of the features of the larger X-H2 into a smaller form-factor. Both cameras share the X-Trans CMOS 5 HR image sensor, with a record-breaking 40 megapixel resolution in the APS-C form factor, and the X Processor 5 for processing.
Consequently, the Fujifilm X-T5 also features the autofocus already familiar from the X-H2S, with detection for people, animals, cars, (motor) bikes, planes and trains. The integrated image stabilizer further allows, in addition to up to seven EV longer exposure times, the capture of 160 megapixel photos with Pixelshift Multi Shot.
Also directly adopted the Fujifilm X-T5 up to 20 frames per second in continuous shooting mode. Combined with the high resolution, however, this also means plenty of data to handle. The X-T5 unfortunately lacks the extremely fast CFexpress memory card slot of the X-H2 for this, instead two UHS-II card slots are available.
Which SD cards for the Fujifilm X-T5?
The Fujifilm X-T5 is comparatively picky and does not reach the expected speed with all UHS-II SD memory cards. The fastest memory cards for continuous shooting are found in the table below, we recommend the top 5 for the maximum possible endurance in continuous shooting. Surprisingly good and positive for your bank account: Cheaper UHS-II memory cards partly perform better than expensive upper-class models.
The former usually already offer the V60 video speed class, which is sufficient for all formats, frame rates and resolutions on the Fujifilm X-T5 - whether for slow motion in Full HD resolution with up to 240 fps or 6.2K video in all-intra encoding and 10 bit color depth with high-quality 4:2:2 subsampling for more flexibility in post-processing. Corresponding memory cards are marked with a badge.
However, Fujifilm is one of a few camera brands to offer the option to also reduce the bitrate to 50, 100 or 200 Mbps in most recording formats, which can make slower memory cards useful for video recording.
