    Hello everyone, I've been having some issues with one SD Card (integral ultima pro 64Gb) on my Fuji X-T20, and have been searching on the internet for the best SD Card for this camera.

    I found that the Sandisk Extreme Pro are the choice to go and I was going to buy the 64Gb one, then I saw some photographers advising not to use SD cards with more than 32Gb.

    Should I buy 2 32Gb Sandisk Extreme Pro just to be safe, or there is no problem at all with one of 64Gb for my X-T20?

    Welcome to the forum Flavio

    Both cards are fine, its more to do with not having everything on one card in case something goes wrong.
    Personally have 2 x 32gb, but that's mainly because they were on offer at the time, also have a couple of 8gb versions.

    I hardly ever fill a 32gb in a day and have dual slots, also back up in the evening if i'm away so the failure thing is academic.
    Your choice, but the two card route is probably best

    Thanks for the reply Tijuana Taxi!
    I was assuming by some videos I saw that the 32Gb could have a better perfomance in the x-t20, but I must have misunderstood this 32Gb vs 64Gb thing.

    I too use a number of smaller capacity cards so as not to risk losing everything if I have a card failure, lose it, etc.

    I was like you, got excited with my x-t20 and got the 64 extreme pro for it.
    looking back, i would get two - 32gb instead like many had said earlier.

    I'm another one in the camp of 2 smaller cards rather than one big one. Actually, I have six 32Gig cards - safety in numbers. Then again, I have three Fuji X cameras.

    +1 with multiple smaller cards - but always SanDisk Pro.
