Sony 160GB CFexpress Type A Reviews

So far the memory card has worked well

By William

I have only been using this card for about three weeks in Florida's wetlands. I have a Sony a1 and to get 30 frames a second RAW I need this card in the camera. The card does keep up with 30 fps and I only shoot 30 fps for up to about a few seconds and my buffer has not filled. I can shoot a burst and a few seconds and then later shoot another burst without waiting for the card to store the images. So, I have not experienced any slow downs to this point. You must also get the Sony CFexpress Type A/SD reader if you want to load your images onto the computer without using the cable to load them from the camera. I generally cull my shots in the camera, it is usually much faster this way, then when I load the images onto the computer using the Sony card reader it helps to only work with the images in intend to use in photoshop. So, the card keeps up with my Sony a1 without filling the buffer and is always ready to capture my next burst. For now it has preformed flawlessly and so far I would recommend this card if you intend to shoot the Sony a1 at 30fps RAW.

Expensive, but reliable!

You get what you pay for. This card is crazy fast, reliable, allows all forms of recording, and is cute to look at. When it comes to media cards - I personally don't mess around. You spent all that money on that camera, and it needs solid media to record to without fail.

It does what it should. I would rate it excellent except that it is over priced compared to the CFE Type B cards. Sony has a virtual monopoly which doesn't make this customer happy.

I purchased the Sony 80GB CFexpress Type A TOUGH Memory Card for my Sony A7IV. Works flawlessly. I was able to take hundreds of photos and shoot several 4K videos with no issues. Uploading the photos to my hard drive was super quick and seamless.

No buffer problems at mid range continuous shooting speed on my Sony a7 IV. I also have a Lexar SDXC V60 II card for back up, which hit the buffer limit a couple of times when I first started using it.

Good but overpriced. So far, no competition and Sony doesn't show any signs of lowering the price. I wish they would have selected the type B.

I used to hate dumping footage. Now, I have the whole crew gather round and watch in awe at the speed of this footage transfer. You get what you pay for with these. Steep price=steep speeds.

The a7s iii shoots H.264/XAVC S 4:2:2 10-Bit 119.88p at 280 Mb/s. This gives nearly 70 mins of recording on a 160GB card. Shooting H.264/XAVC S 4:2:0 8-Bit at 200 Mb/s gives 88 mins of recording on a 160GB card.
