Sony 240GB Overview

  • 1Description

Designed for professional photographers and videographers, the 240GB G Series XQD Memory Card from Sony is made to excel in high-end DSLRs, including models from Nikon and Sony, and offers a storage capacity of up to 240GB. Equipped with a PCIe 2.0 interface, this XQD card features read speeds of up to 440 MB/s and write speeds of up to 400 MB/s, allowing it to record 4K video and up to 200 continuous raw still image bursts.

As with most Sony cards, this memory card is shockproof, X-ray proof, and magnet proof, while also being able to withstand temperatures from -13 to 149°F, allowing you to take this card with you into extreme environments, such as snow and deserts. It is also resistant to intense UV light exposures, can resist damage from drops up to 16.4', and up to 50 N of force. Should the card's data become compromised, you also benefit from the option to download File Rescue software for free to help recover deleted content, including raw images, MOV files, and 4K XAVC-S video.

General Features

Dependable 4K Video Recording
Sony's unique data controller works to ensure stable 4K video recording, with two-way communication to manage data bottlenecks on compatible cameras. This 240GB card offers approximately 45 minutes of 4K XAVC Intra recording using Sony's 4K PXW-FS7 II.
Burst Shooting
With its fast write speed, Sony XQD G Series memory cards are well-suited for continuous raw burst shooting with DSLR cameras. Capture up to 200 raw images in a single burst.
Capture More Decisive Moments
Sony XQD G series memory cards are designed to keep pace with the shooting speed of your camera and clear the memory buffer fast. You can capture more decisive moments and bursts of continuous shots, even with high-end DSLRs.
Robust Shell Structure
Sony's technologies increase shell strength to improve durability. Recessed contact pins also help protect them from damage, dust, and electrostatic shock for reliable performance, even in harsh environments.
Designed for professional use, this card offers improved strength over standard XQD cards. The additional rigidity is tested to 50 N of force, helping to prevent the risk of flexing and bending caused during transport and by repeated insertion into card slots.
Durability During Intense Use
Up to 5x more durable compared to standard XQD cards, Sony's G Series cards are tested to withstand drops of 16.4' / 5.0m, giving users confidence when handling or swapping cards, even under busy, hasty, or dark shooting circumstances.
Fast Data Transfers
Sony's XQD/SD card reader and USB adapters are a good match for G Series XQD memory cards. With transfers faster than CompactFlash cards, your data backups and work flow are more efficient.
Designed for Professionals
Sony's XQD memory cards are shockproof, magnet proof, anti-static, and resistant to breakage. They also offer fast performance, even in extreme temperatures, under exposure to intense UV light, and airport x-ray machines. Designed for prolonged professional use, Sony XQD cards are tested for dependable storage in a vast array of environments.
File Rescue Software
Sometimes things go wrong and data, such as photos and files, get damaged or lost. Sony's File Rescue is a powerful tool for recovering damaged or lost data that is simple enough for almost anyone to use. Applying an advanced algorithm, Sony's File Rescue realizes a higher rate of recovery for raw images, MOV files, and 4K XAVC-S video files captured on both Sony and Nikon devices. Sony's File Rescue is available as a free download to memory card customers.

    Sony 240GB Reviews

    240GB G Series XQD Memory Card is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 261.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Used card in Nikon Z7 failed I formatted the card on computer then in camera when i got it . I kept getting Card, Err on my New Z7 camera with about 100 raw files on the card already. I would turn camera off then remove card and re insert the card and it would work for about 3 more pictures then the Err would pop up again.  I was traveling to Iceland so this was very disappointing that this kept happening. However after doing this a few times to get it to work, the card completely failed and said For to format the card. When i put the card into my computer to save the files my macbook pro would not recognize the card . Now i have a Dud $300+ memory card.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Write/Read Speed I use these memory cards for my Nikon D4S and my D500. When using my D500, the cards are so fast I can shoot 200 consecutive shots at 10fps! These cards give me the chance to effectively increase my buffer size (effective buffer size is a race between you generating data and your card writing data). Small size is nice too. But they are not as small as SD cards, nor as cheap.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from B&H needs to protect their shipments The XQD card was packed by the manufacturer in a small plastic hard case. This was great as the package was obviously stepped upon sometime in the shipment to me (I could see the footprint on the package and the scuff marks). The shipment was not protected at all from B&H as it was just in a thin plastic envelope.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from XQD Card Does Its Job I am a retired photographer and not an engineer so I do not go into detailed testing of everything I purchase. If it works like it is advertised, that is fine. This card seems to do that. It transfers files a little faster that my best CF cards used with the Nikon D3 but he Z6 files are twice as large (raw files) so I would say that it is fast. It is well built and hopefully will last a long time. I did have to purchase another card reader since none of my readers were equipped to handle this new card.  On the downside It is a bit pricey though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but great I use it for my D850, big RAW files, along with 256GB SanDisk SD card they make a great combo. I have the 64GB and 128GB I use for D4s and D500. I have had occasional issues with SD cards by never with Sony XQDs...I wish I can have more but it is hard to burn $463.50 per card.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very fast, no waiting The size of the card speaks for itself.  I use it in a Nikon D500 and I usually shoot to capture both RAW and large JPEG files.  Even with that, I can shoot continuously at high speed for as long as I want without the Memory Card slowing down the camera.  Its amazingly fast. Its a shame that it appears that the XQD  format is a dead-end one, because its about ideal for my purposes.  I dont shoot video so I dont know how well it would work for that.
    Date published: 2018-11-20
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast card, but make sure that your FS7 is at the latest firmware 4.3 as of this writing. Or the card wont work, and youll get a media not guaranteed message in your viewfinder! An unwelcome message indeed. After I updated the firmware, everything went as expected.
    Date published: 2018-12-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from NIkon D500 Memory I bought this without knowing if it would work in my Nikon D500. Couldn't find anyone to definitively say it would work in my new camera, although I didn't look too hard. It works great, don't think I'll every have to take it out of the camera, or fill it up for that matter.

    How many minutes of 4k Video from the Nikon Z6 ...

    How many minutes of 4k Video from the Nikon Z6 can you get on the 256GB card?
    Asked by: Ryan
    The maximum image quality for video with the Z cameras is 4K/30FPS. This creates a 144 Mbps rate. (144 Mega bits per second) This equals 64 gigabyte /hour (GB/hr.) Therefore a 256GB card divided by 64GB equals 4 hours of total record time. Remember however that the camera's clip length is 29 minutes and 59 seconds and it will then stop. To proceed, simply press the button again. If you find that annoying, speak to the European Union regarding their tax on video cameras.

    Asked by: JOHNNY
    Nikon publishes about 2.5k 14bit lossless compressed Raw images with 240GB storage. However, the reality is frequently 20 - 30% more in reality.

    Does this card work with Nikon D4?
    Asked by: William T.
    Since I cannot link to the Nikon news story about using a G series XQD in the Nikon D4, I will state the news from Nikon is dated October 27th 2014. And they state the 2.0 performance of a faster write from the camera to card is not supported by the D4, but that you have 1.0 writing performance. I have a D4 and would like someone who has used a G series card in their D4 to answer my question which is: do the G series cards work in the D4?
