Let's face it, you can put any old recently released "SD" card into your 90D and a few photos can be recorded and saved until you're ready to copy onto your computer. The physical size of all the SD cards are the same.
True, but there's more to the story. You don't want your 90D to get bogged down and interrupt your capturing of any momentous photos or videos because it's not a good match with your Canon EOS 90D camera. You don't want your card to be too slow or too small with capacity.
First, we'll dive in right away to my recommendations and then we'll explain why they're they best match for your 90D.
Based on the EOS 90D specs for file size for jpg and RAW files, and shooting video at frame rates and resolutions, as well as my own experiences with my 90D for the last 5 months, here are the top 5 SD memory cards for your 90D.
Specifically, your 90D SD memory card should be an (1)SDXC, should have at least (2)64GB of memory, should be a (3)Class 10, and write at least about (4)100MB/s. The 5th recommendations is that use one of the (5) brands listed below. Sandisk and Transcend are the very top 2.

Advice on camera memory cards becomes outdated fast because it's always a fast changing technology so the best tip I can tell you is to get one of the cards I've listed below. You can't go wrong with any one of them and they're all at super low prices now.
1. WHICH BRAND. Stick with one of the well known brands. Reliability IS VERY IMPORTANT and buying a cheap knock-off brand puts you at risk to lose the important photos and videos you've captured on your 90D.
You can trust any one of these 5 brands of memory card for your 90D:
2. NEED. Only buy what you need. You really don't need the very fastest that reads and writes at 300 MBS and you don't need a super high capacity. The current memory card technology has advanced past the needs of your 90D.
Avoid the shiny new toy syndrome. We're all tempted to buy and try the very latest and greatest technology around. Manufacturers are desperately fighting to earn your business, so they increase speed and capacity way beyond what you really need.
3. FOLLOW. Follow the other photographers. Rather than take the advice of one "expert," your search for the best card for your 90D should be based on an SD card that's already been tested by hundreds or thousands of photographer.
No matter where you buy, tap into the reviews on AMAZON. to find out which memory cards have been rated the highest by the most photographers.
Buy your memory card where the price is right. Competition between camera equipment dealers; like Adorama and BHPhoto, Online retailers, like Amazon and Walmart; auction sites like ebay; box stores like BestBuy, Target, Staples, or OfficeMax is intense and you can get a good deal at any one of them.
I truly hope this post on getting a good memory card for your 90D (or any other current Canon DSLR with similar specs) was helpful. You can search for other helpful posts on my site by using the search box below or scroll down to see other posts on the Canon 90D below my signature.
Have a blast. Shoot a Canon.

Take a practical look at this wide angle zoom and see if the Canon 16-35mm lens is worth it and what kind of photography it's good for-then decide which is best

Is there a way to turn off the sensor feature so that when using a lower lens I.e. 16 mm it shoots at 16 mm and not with the 1.6 factor? Hi John, Thanks
