In my Canon R5 I have nothing but Sony tough CF and SD cards. Have never had any issues with either one. Super fast write speed!!!

So far so good

My first experience with CFexpress, and so far so good. Seems to work well with my Z6ii.

Sony Tough works very well with my Nikon Z9

I shoot lossless compressed raw files and normally at 10 fps. I have had no trouble with the buffer on the Z9 for the short burst I typically do. I have never had a problem with the card overheating.

The perfect card for the Canon EOS R5

By Lyle

The thing most people skip over is the Write speed and focus on the Read speed which is always the top line in the advertisement. But in most cases, who cares what the read speed is. All I care about is getting my 50Mb image on the card, which depends on the Write speed. With a Write speed of 1480 MB/s, the Sony Tough cards are some of the fastest around. I use the 128 GB card because it holds over 2,000 images on the card. Practically speaking even on a good day I seldom need to switch cards. If you buy a 256 or larger card, you're probably spending money that would be better wasted on another 128 Gb card. Having two smaller cards is better than one card as you don't have a backup. I've never had a memory card related issue with the Sony Tough cards.

Perfection on a Canon R5

I have found this card to be 100% reliable on the Canon R5. Some reported freezes occurring with some other brands of cards. I can assure you this is NOT one that will end up with that issue. Fast, reliable and doesn't get that warm in use. Highly recommended

Fast, reliable, tough

The write speed is fast enough for long bursts with my Z9 in lossless compressed recording mode. It stays cool to the touch.

Canon Compatible

I usually use either Lexar or Sandisk however Sony's Tough line was recommended for use in my Canon R5.

Super Fast Read/Write Speeds with Incomparable Toughness

By TIMOTHY

I have been using my first 256GB Sony CFexpress Tough card for well over a year with dozens of cycles of photos. It is one tough card and is fast fast fast! Writing speeds are perfect for video or burst photography and when you go to read from it, it downloads to your equipment with ease and lightning fast speeds. I just bought my second card as I like to have a backup of the CFexpress for travel photography. Not cheap but, like they say, You get what you pay for. Worth every penny of the investment.

In specifications, manufacturers leave the elephant in the room out. How many write cycles are supported by the card? I saw a very durable for industrial purposes with high mil-spec numbers and 3,000,000 MTBF, but the flash memory will not survive 3,000 write cycles. Another vendor I asked about TBW and they answer "enough". In short: how many write cycles do these "Tough" cards sustain?
Asked by: JP
According to Sony they state that unfortunately, they have no information on the maximum approximate number of write cycles for their Sony 128GB CFexpress Type B TOUGH Memory Card.

R5 card failure: My card totally failed, progressively got worse in the form of freezing while shooting over a 3 day period than it totally bricked, camera won't turn on with the card in the camera, red light comes on but it won't boot. What could have caused this, it's pretty new (6 m/o), is there a warranty? Thank you
Asked by: Roger
If your camera works properly with a different CFExpress card then there must be something quite wrong with the original card. I own 6 of the Sony CFExpress Type B cards and I have not had any difficulty on the Canon 1DX Mark III or Canon R5.

Asked by: David
I have both the sanDisk and Sony CFexpress cards- in my humble opinion the Sony card works much better than expected and has a great great processing speed - I use both cards interchangeably- however I use the Sony as my primary and SanDisk as backup(slot 2) - dual slotted camera
