CF Express is not the old school CF. It is typically featured on higher end cameras.

It says it's out of stock now but that is a really good deal. The 256GB version actually costs more and the 128GB is just a little less.

Out of stock, but it looks like you can still order. It will just take a week or two before it gets shipped.

It should be noted that this is a Type B Card, which appears to be used by Canon and Nikon, vs the smaller Type A Card which is used by Sony.

This is the kind of censored smiley that drives me crazy. mad smiley

There are already so many different types of memory cards in use, why should they create two different variations of the same technology?!

Type A slots are backwards compatible with SD cards, so that's a convenience for the consumer (and probably why Sony went with Type A since all their other cameras use SD). But Type A is about half the speed of Type B. And Type B are pin compatible with XQD, probably why Nikon went with Type B.

Canon users got left out in the cold since they used CF for the 5D (with SD for the 2nd card) and CFast/CF for the 1DX II. But the 1DX III and R5 switched to CFexpress Type B.

I wouldn't say Canon users were left out in the cold, just not using one of the million variations of new cards until CFExpress. (CFast was only used on the 1DXII before being abandoned and in my opinion was a total boondoggle.)

The 1DX has dual CF slots, the 1DXII has a CF and CFast slot, and the 1-series prior to the 1DX had dual slots, one CF and one SD.

Yup
1DsII CF and SD but the SD performance is very slow
1DX dual CF Cards, much better
1DxII added a Fast card slow for 4k60 video along with a CF slot. Crazy
1DxIII CF Express B.

My card cost really adds up, plus card readers and keeping track of what fits what camera. Not a feature I like

The slots should be different enough to prevent this (different sizes and guides). Thus, if you did manage to do it (i.e. by forcing it REALLY HARD), then yes, you are likely to damage something. Kind of like if you try to put an SD card in upside down. It isn't going to want to fit unless you make it fit!

Oh, I was not up to speed with the different formats, and somehow, I misunderstood from this thread that there are 2 different Compact Flash format, with same footprint but different protocols/speeds. Sorry for confusion.

By the way, the sale appears to be over; the price is now way higher.
