Make sure to get a U3 card for 4K video at highest setting. Most advertised speed is the read speed, pay more attention to fast write speed, especially for continue shooting in raw.

This Sandisk one is very decent, 95MB/s read and 90Mb/s write, should be more than enough for the A6500. Of course there are other faster cards out there but would cost much more.

This is all you need. You don't need anything faster. The A6500 can't write faster than 40mb/s. Anything faster is just a waste of money.

I actually paid $35 on black friday at canada computers. I wouldn't be surprised if it went on sale again at canada computers on boxing day. Currently its $50 at canada computers, so its best to buy from amazon at the moment.

Buy Sandisk Extreme series memory cards only. The Sandisk Ultra series only has a write speed of approx 10MB/s.
