    Hi, I've sold my nikon d610 and lenses 6 months ago and bought the fuji x-t20.
    I'm happy with my switch overall, although have found some unexpected issues.
    Sometimes when I focus, the EVF flickers. Recently I could not playback the photos I've just taken, solved this by formating the card but I had to shoot half a day without reviewing what I was photographing . And sometimes the wireless app stops working abruptly and the camera doesn't go back to shooting mode, have to restart the camera...
    Also when I shoot continuous mode I can't review the photos right after I shoot them, I have to wait a few long moments.
    Does anyone had this kind of issues or other ones so I can be prepared for some future "surprises"?

    Are you using a Lexar card?

    Hello jcdeboever and Derrel. Thanks for the fast reply ;-)
    I don't have lexar cards, I was using a SDXC Integral ultima pro 64Gb.

    Could still be an issue. I’ve never heard of that brand. I’d reccomend buying a high quality card from sandisk and seeing if your problems persist. Memory cards are one thing that I refuse to buy off brands. I use sandisk and only sandisk.

    That’s what I’m using and it worked great on the x-t20 when I had it.

    Disclaimer: I didn’t shoot video on the xt20 so I can’t speak for that side of things.

    I've been searching for the best sd card for the x-t20 and saw some photographers advising not to use cards with more than 32Gb.
    Should I by the Sandisk Extreme Pro 32Gb instead of the 64Gb for maximum performance with my x-t20?

    I agree with the recommendation but wanted to add that you should buy the card from a reputable store or online seller, not eBay or Amazon. There are a lot of counterfeit cards out there. If you google it you will find many photos of the real vs fake cards and it’s next to impossible to tell the difference until your camera has issues.
