Looking for the best memory cards for your Nikon D7500?
The D7500 has 1 x SD memory card that supports UHS-I speeds. It can record 4K videos and shoot at 8fps so it helps having a good memory card.
Our favorite memory card is the SanDisk Extreme Pro 64GB. It’s as cheap as the majority of UHS-I cards, yet is the fastest and most reliable of them all.
After looking through many memory cards available, these are the top 3 (best price/speed ratio).
Best Memory Cards for Nikon D7500
- SanDisk Extreme Pro UHS-I (95MB/s)
- Lexar Professional 2000x UHS-II (300MB/s)
- Lexar Professional 1000x UHS-II (150MB/s)
SanDisk Extreme Pro 64GB
Our top pick: For the price, nothing beats the SanDisk Extreme Pro 64GB (95MB/s). It’s our most recommended card for almost all cameras, simply because it’s UHS-I U3 at 95MB/s and extremely reliable.
It’s more than enough for the Nikon D7500 and that includes 4K videos and 6.5fps burst mode shooting.
Lexar Professional 2000x UHS-II
This card is an overkill for the Nikon D7500. You won’t see any faster in-camera writing speeds since it’s UHS-II and the Nikon D7500 can only go up to UHS-I. However, the Lexar Professional 2000x will get you a lot faster transferring speeds (to your computer/disk), so if you send thousands of shots weekly, you might want to think about this one.
In-camera, it will be just as fast as the SanDisk above simply because the D7500 tops out at UHS-I speed. It’s up to you to decide what matters more, especially because the Lexar costs 3 times as much.
Lexar Professional 1000x UHS-II
The Lexar Professional 1000x 64GB is a slower, more affordable version of the card above. Instead of 300MB/s, it tops out at 150MB yet is still UHS-II U3 so the minimum will always be 30MB/s.
It’s less expensive than the SanDisk but it’s a fraction slower, despite being UHS-II. You will notice an improvement in read speeds (aka moving the images, displaying files etc.) but not in-camera.
Don’t buy memory cards from unknown brands or something that looks too good to be true. More often than not, those cards will fail right when you’ll need them the most.
A memory card is where all of your work is stored until you transfer that on the computer.
Make sure to get a card from any of the following brands: SanDisk, Lexar, Transcend and Kingston. There are a few good out there, but the 4 we mentioned are more than enough.
