    Compact Flash. It's what's been in every Pro and Semi-Pro body up until the D5 & D500.

    CF is a type of card. I had one in my D300 and I think the D8xx cams use it as well. They are larger than the SD cards

    edit. I didn't see jake's post above, when I typed this.

    well....you're right! By the way, I've been reading quite a few reviews from Photography Life....great site....I've been reading it periodically for quite some time.....more so recently as the D500 review was very important to me. Thanks for sharing that site with us a year or two ago. Great information. Utt-oo, Compact Flash......now I get it thanks to you and @Whiskeyman. A form of flash memory....

    I bought this one SanDisk Extreme PRO 64 GB SDXC UHS-I Memory Card - Standard Packaging: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories and works absolutely perfect.
    Not to expensive and I shoot RAW all the time...

    CF - Compact Flash, a format that was developed in the early to Mid-1990s. Physically, it is much larger than a SD card, but also had much faster read and write speeds for a long time, but that has changed.
