You may have already known that the DJI Mavic Mini has no internal storage and doesn’t come with a micro SD card. If you are new to drones and Mavic Mini is your first one, you may neglect this when you bought it.

The easiest way to solve this is to check if any of your existing sd cards used for DSLR, action camera or other devices are in this DJI Recommended List. If so, you can insert the sd card and get your Mavic Mini in the air to start shooting, if not, you’d better get a new one or you may have compatibility issues.

 

Why you should trust me?

As the founder of Cutofdrone, I have nearly 5 years of experience working with DJI. During my time there, I was in charge of the DJI Online Store operation and participated in every major new product launch including. I also initiated the introduction of the microSD cards that are now selling on the DJI Store.

I am an experienced drone pilot, and I own a Phantom 3 Advanced, a Mavic Pro and a Mavic 2 Pro. I have more than 10 micro SD cards for my drones.

 

Best micro SD Card for Mavic Mini

If you take a look at the DJI Recommended sd cards List, you will find that there are 27 kinds of SD cards that are compatible with your Mavic Mini. You can choose whichever you like according to your brand preference. But there are three things I would like to specify here:

  1. Don’t use any micro sd cards that are outside this list. It may work at the beginning, but there might be issues after. According to my experience working with DJI, the R&D team has tested every single one for quite many hours before they put it into the list.
  2. Mavic Mini supports shooting 2.7k videos at 30fps, a 64G card can hold around 3h videos, a 32G one can hold nearly 1.5h.
  3. For most new pilots, there is no need to choose a large one like 128G or 256G. The 32G or 64G ones will do the trick. If you worry that the storage may not enough, you can buy two 64G cards instead of one 128G.  Also, the 16G version is not recommended because is too small.

Based on these, we think the following ones are the best sd memory cards for you Mavic Mini.
