Sony 160GB CFexpress Type A Reviews
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.
Sony 80GB CFexpress Type A TOUGH Memory Card is blazing fast
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.
Great for Sony a7 IV
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.
Sony Type A CF express 160GB
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 switched to Sony from Nikon last year because of a few bad experiences with Nikon customer service and was not expecting to run into the staggering price tag for CFexpress-A cards when CFexpress-B cards are twice as fast and half the cost. Further, I was hoping to see type A cards decrease in price as the platform increased in popularity, but this hasn't even begun to occur. I could justify this price if, and only if, Sony managed to crank the read/write speeds up high enough to validate it. I bought a couple ProGrade 160gig cards on special for when I need to shoot at higher cycle rates, but otherwise, sticking to SD cards.
Locked up my A7 IV
I loaded it into my camera and immediately had issues. The card could only handle single shots without locking up the camera. When I tried to delete a photo taken, the camera froze and I was unable to turn it off. Had to reset it by removing the battery.
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.
160 GB CFexpress Type A
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.
