Best Memory Cards for Sony a7S III

Looking for the best memory cards for Sony a7S III? Here are our top recommended & fastest CFexpress cards and SD cards for Sony a7S III mirrorless camera.

The Sony a7S III has dual memory card slots that are both compatible with CFexpress Type A cards and UHS-II-compatible SD cards. Meaning that you can take full advantage of the write speeds and read speeds of UHS-II cards to get the best out of your Sony a7S III camera.

As we mentioned above, the Sony a7S III has 2x memory card slots that both support CFexpress Type A cards and UHS-II SD cards. Although SD cards and CFexpress Type A cards are not the same in size, both card slots in the Sony a7S III will accept either card type. So, if you have already had some fast SD cards, you can continue to use them since most of the Sony a7S III’s features work fine with either V60 or V90 cards. But, if you would like to use the camera’s most bandwidth intensive recording format – S&Q (‘slow and quick’) mode with 10-bit 4:2:2 recording, you will still need some higher-performance CFexpress Type A cards.

In this article you can find our top recommended CFexpress cards & SD cards for Sony a7S III based on the speed and price.
