p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · D4 users! Sony H series XQD cards discontinued


Good prices at Adorama! I don't like huge cards, and the speed isn't that much difference for my work. May be a good time to stock up.

They are getting replaced by the S-Series ones. They are faster

XQD is the "replacement" for CF cards. The H-Series are being replaced by the new S-series. Same card just faster read/write performance. Lear has also started producing XQD cards. I'm pretty sure the new Nikon pro body will be dual XQD.

Looks cheaper than the Sandisk Extreme Pro CF cards.

since there has been no official word of a D4s my crystal ball shows nothing on that front. but if it has XQD slots installed it will. on a D4 it is nothing more then a speed bump up as is the Lexar version with the mystery write speeds.

I am considering buying some more at this price - http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/840663-REG/Sony_QDH16_T_16GB_XQD_Memory_Card.html
Are the new XQD's going to be that much better? I thought the current cards were great.

Thanks you all for the info. I hadn't thought about the future of these cards. Seems all is well.

the relevance is going to be future use such as higher res video and such. the speed increase is fairly substantial from 125MB/s capability to 168MB/s which increases throughput while shooting insanely long continuous bursts in still camera mode. I have one coming tomorrow (32GB). I kind of doubt it will make a real difference for now for me. but who knows.

Lexar will now be producing XQD cards too.

Looks like a Betamax sale to me. I'd be more motivated to stock up if there were two of the same slots, but if I was to spend my $ it would be on CF as that is likely going to be in the next high end DSLR versus this XQD format.

Once again the UK sucks. No sign of reduced pricing for the H series cards here

My crystal ball says:

'Companies are prepping for raw video in DSLRs'.

Here's hoping they have the foresight to implement some sort of compressed raw like Redcode or Cineform. Otherwise we'll need a lot of 128gb cards.

Nope. CFast is the replacement for CF. XQD is a competing format.
