Kiss X7i (700D) memory card for video
« on: March 24, 2022, 12:47:45 PM »
Good day

I'm getting a used Kiss X7i tonight which I will be using for video recording (podcast and YouTube tutorials). I was wondering what memory card I can use. This is my first camera so I'm still new to all of this but I learn very quick. I'm thinking of getting this one:

https://www.geewiz.co.za/128gb-sd-card/141348-sandisk-extreme-sdxc-128gb-150mbs-v30-uhs-i-u3-memory-card.html

Anyone know if this will work? I'm not sure if I can only use a memory card up to a certain capacity or up to certain speeds.

Thanks!

700D is certified for SD, SDHC, SDXC. Means all those cards should do. SDXC max. capacity is 2 TB ( = 2000 GB). SDUX isn't in the list.
If you want to do raw/MLV recording with overclocking module with Bilal's build: We only have limited experience with different cards and each card may react differently to overclocking. I am wondering why this card is doing not so well with Sandisk's own cardreader in write mode. See numbers in https://www.cameramemoryspeed.com/reviews/sd-cards/sandisk-extreme-plus-150mbs-u3-v30-128gb-sdxc-memory-card/
78 MByte/s vs. 98 MByte/s for 170 MB/s variety.
I don't like this.
But as said: Limited experience with different cards and therefore it is just speculation.

If you want to do plain H.264/MOV recording or MLV/raw recording without overclocking this card will do fine. Limit for 700D's SDcard interface without overclocking is below 50 MByte/s.
