Top Five Memory Cards for Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

The Canon EOS 5D MarK IV is one heck of a nice upgrade from the Canon 5D MK III. It has an improved sensor of 30.4 megapixel CMOS sensor with a Digic 6+ processor and 4K video at 23.98, 24, 25 and 30 fps. It also has a 61-point autofocus system.

With an improved sensor and processor, this camera will need some heavyweight memory cards to handle all that data.

We have put together a list of the top five memory cards that will get the best from the Canon 5D Mark IV. As the camera has dual card capabilities, we have created a list of the five best SD and Compact Flash cards.

First are the five best SDXC cards. It is worth noting that the 5D Mark IV only fully supports the UHS-I card. You can use UHS-II SDXC cards but unfortunately you will not be able to realise the full potential of these cards with the Mark IV. With that said we have only highlighted the UHS-I cards.
