In today’s article, we will be going over what we feel are the main contenders for the title of best memory card for Nikon d750 cameras currently available on the market right now. We have seen a number of people reaching out for advice on what SD Cards they should be picking up for their d750 so we decided to publish this article in an attempt to help as many of our readers in this same situation as possible.
We will be featuring three memory cards in our article each targeted at a specific budget but in reality, all three of the cards are relatively budget-friendly while offering some great performance. All three of these SD cards have managed to earn excellent reputations since their release and will perform well with your d750.
We would like to point out that all three of the memory cards in our list use UHS-I (Ultra High-Speed One) technology and are fully compatible with your Nikon d750 and will provide the listed data rate on the card. We have noticed a number of people recommending UHS-II cards for use with the d750 but your camera does not support the UHS-II technology, only UHS-I.
Although the UHS-II cards show some fancy data rates up to and over 200MB/s, you will never get this when using a D750 as it will rely on the backward compatibility bus in the card to work with its UHS-I tech. So you could have a UHS-II card with a listed speed of 200MB/s but as your camera only supports UHS-I the card uses its UHS-I bus that could only be 45MB/s resulting in a much slower transfer speed than any of the UHS-I cards we are recommending in our article while also having wasted double, or even treble the cost money of these cards.
The SanDisk 64GB Ultra SDXC UHS-I – Budget Option
One thing that we would like to stress is that this is our budget option card and as thus, some concessions have to give. For example, its 80MB/s data rate will be able to meet almost all of the requirements of a Nikon d750 user but it can struggle with 4K video recording as you will require a higher data rate. If you are planning on recording 4K video regularly then we would recommend either of the two SD cards below over this one.
That said, everything else will work fine so if you are not planning on recording much 4K video then this is the card for you. It will record standard HD video without issue while also being able to save and store any photographs that you capture without having any effect on their image quality too.
The SanDisk 64GB Ultra SDXC UHS-I is available in the following sizes but we would recommend that you pick up the 64GB card as a minimum for use with a d750.
All in all, this is a solid entry level SD card that is very budget friendly and we would recommend that our readers seriously consider it.
The SanDisk Extreme PRO UHS-I – Mid Range Option
That said although the read and write speed of the card is able to record any 4K footage that you want to record with your Nikon d750, if you are planning on recording for over thirty minutes continuously the card can become very hot. That said, the SanDisk Extreme PRO UHS-I is probably the best card for the majority of our readers due to its excellent performance and middle of the road price tag.
This card is available in the following sizes and again we would recommend that you pick up a 64GB or higher card for use with a Nikon d750, especially if you are wanting to record 4K video.
The Lexar Professional 633x SDXC UHS-I – Premium Option
The Lexar Professional 633x SDXC UHS-I is able to meet all the requirements that you may have for your d750 and not even break a sweat. That said, it is the most expensive SD card on our list and if you are not planning on recording 4K video for extended periods of time then we would recommend you actually pick up the SanDisk covered above over this to save yourself a little money.
At the time of writing the Lexar Professional 633x SDXC UHS-I is available in the following storage sizes and again, we would recommend that you pick up a 64GB or higher card.
