Our advice: From our own experience, we recommend SanDisk memory cards. The SanDisk Extreme Pro is fast enough for high-speed image sequences and 4K video:

Memory card for EOS 200D and A99 II

The 64 GB Extreme will take up to 90 minutes of super high-res 4K video. For Full HD video we recommend the SanDisk Ultra.

Note: 1-Euro coin for scale; the coin at 23.25mm diameter is slightly smaller than a US quarter.

Featuring an area of 856mm² (1.37 sq.in.), the A99 II's sensor is a lot larger that the chip that the EOS 200D employs at 332mm² (0.53 sq.in.). A larger sensor can produce images of interiors or at night that have less noise and better contrast than photos shot with APS-C sized chips.

Our rating of the Canon EOS 200D

The EOS 200D (US: Rebel SL2) is the smallest DSLR in Canon's lineup and follows the EOS 100D (US: Rebel SL1) of 2013. Featuring a new battery for greatly improved stamina, the compact camera also gains Dual Pixel Autofocus (DPAF) for better autofocus when recording videos and in Live View mode. The APS-C sized sensor records 24 megapixel and captures video with up to 1920 x 1080 pixel (FullHD). The connector for an external microphone is a plus for videographers.
