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 M50 and X-T2

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.

Our rating of the Canon EOS M50

No rating available.

Our rating of the Fujifilm X-T2

The X-T2 is Fujifilm's flagship APS-C camera. As such it has an excellent feature set and is the first Fuji that records 4K video. Built-in Wifi and automatic sensor cleaning combined with USB 3.0 and weather sealing make for an attractive, albeit not exactly cheap package. Add to that a great build quality paired with the manufacturer's attention to detail and you have a winner. Fuji's great lens selection is another plus.

Amateurs and enthusiast who can live without the more high-end features, namely USB 3.0 and sealing, should take a look at the much more affordable Fujifilm X-T20.
