Silicon Power 256GB CFexpress Type B Overview

By B&H Photo's

Designed to deliver demanding performance for photographers and videographers, the 256GB Cinema EX CFexpress 2.0 Type B Memory Card from Silicon Power takes advantage of the PCIe 3.0 x2 / NVMe 1.3 interface to provide read speeds of up to 1700 MB/s and write speeds of up to 1200 MB/s, which allows it to record cinema-quality 8K video at high frame rates and bitrates, as well as raw and continuous-burst still photos. This card's performance is maintained by a dynamic SLC cache, which helps maintain its sustained read/write performance.

General Features

Harness the Full Potential with CFexpress

The Cinema EX utilizes CFexpress 2.0 technology to deliver fast performance for the most demanding professional photographers and videographers. Its read and write speeds are both more than 3 times faster than CFast 2.0 media, leveraging the maximum performance of high-end digital film cameras. And with a storage capacity of 256GB, it provides longer, uninterrupted shooting sessions.

Write Speeds That Reach Unparalleled Levels

With its PCIe 3.0 x2 interface, as well as support for NVMe 1.3, the Cinema EX boasts extreme recording speeds up to 1200 MB/s for flawless cinema-quality video capture, including 8K at high frame rates and bitrates. It also supports raw continuous-burst shooting without delay, so you won't miss a frame during those critical split-second moments.

Technology That Maximizes Performance

The Cinema EX is more than just impressive speeds. To keep up with the pace that professionals demand, dynamic SLC Cache firmware works to provide optimal read/write sustained performance, while SmartRefresh technology works to maintain high read performance over time.

Technology for Endurance and Stability

A card's ability to keep data safe is just as important as its ability to record it. An LDPC ECC engine and Block/Page RAID function with 3D NAND guarantees 3K PE cycles for enhanced endurance. SmartFlush power-shielding firmware protects data during unstable conditions.

Great card, great customer service, but unfortunately not compatible with the nikon z9. Had to return, but great customer service. They mentioned they'd be making faster cards soon, so lets wait and see!

For now as good as others.

When I first installed the card in my R5 the camera didn't recognize it. I formatted the card with the camera, took some 20 pics and everything is fine.

Two tries and out.

With great excitement I got the first card for my Nikon D850. It was not recognizable, even with the 1.2 FW update, and it was also not recognizable with a Windows 11 PC. BH replace the card and the second card would format with the Nikon D850 and I was able to save a picture, but when I power cycled the D850, the card was no longer recognized. Support from Silicon Power, being in China, is always off-cycle of when I am awake and has come to no resolution. I will have to give up and get a full refund from BH as the card is too expensive to keep messing around on something that should just work out of the box.

Do not buy 256GB version if you have a R5

By Rui

This card is rated as 8K ready but it really disappointed me. This 256GB version write speed is only 1200MB/s while the 512GB version is 1500MB/s. It can only support to take up to about 30secs 8K RAW on my R5. I don't know if 512GB version works longer but definitely not this one.

Works Great With my Nikon D850Z6 II/Z7, Panasonic GH6 & S1

Some conflicting reviews about using with the Nikon Z9 and D850 - can't speak about the former, but mine worked great with a D850. No issues at all with the Nikon Z6II or Z7, along with the Panny GH6 and S1. (and an S1R I borrowed). No problems with the high-quality video from the S1 or S1R or GH6. I also have a number of Silicon Power CFast 2.0 cards I use with Blackmagic (BMPCC 4k & 6K Pro, BM Ursa Mini Pro 12K) as well as the RED Komodo. No issues! It seems like most of the issues are with Canon R5.

outstanding performance for the price

Use it on my D850 (with a firmware upgrade) and more recently on my Z9 and have never missed a beat (or a shot). Excellent value.

You cannot use the Silicon Power 1TB Cinema EX CFexpress 2.0 Type B Memory Card or any CFexpress 2.0 Type B in the Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro. This camera has memory card lots for SDXC (UHS-II) and CFast cards. Angelbird 1TB AV Pro CF CFast 2.0 Memory Card is a good option. Here is the link: https://bhpho.to/3iSp1Mv
