    Re: SD or XQD

    I use XQD cards, and keep an SD card in the slot for overflow. When I have been using SD cards in the D500, and these are fast UHS-I cards, not the faster UHS-II cards, I have only hit the buffer when taking one bird in flight burst after another in quick succession. This happened to me, for instance, when I was shooting Sandhill Cranes taking off in the morning, and there were groups of 3-4 taking off every few second for a while. Under more normal circumstances, a fast UHS-I card is very adequate. Some day I'll have to try the faster UHS-II SD cards, but, man, they aren't cheap. Anyway, I have XQD cards, and I'm glad I do, but I would never say they are "Necessary."

    It would have been humorous if there had been a chorus of calls of "I'm missing one of those!" in response to your post, Marilynne!

    I know this thread is about XQD and SD cards, but has anyone read any recent information from Nikon about a software update to allow the use of CFExpress cards in the D500?

    The latest update was the April 2020 firmware update. It doesn't appear the CFExpress was addressed in that update...

    So do they fit in the same card slot? Obviously I've never seen either one....

    Yes, I believe they "fit"...They're the same form-factor but they're not the same...

    Re: SD or XQD

    I've used XQD for six years, first in the D4 and then the D850 and never had issues. With SD cards, even with the best Lexar ones, I've found at least with the D850 the occasional blips in accessing large RAW files when things start to approach being full. I always write RAW to XQD and backup jpegs to SD, just in case the XQD has a problem, which it never has. They are also faster when reviewing photos quickly on the back display. For me it's not really about the speed of the buffer but just the peace of mind that comes with their greater reliability.

    CFExpress cards fit, and eventually Nikon will likely do a firmware update for the D500, but I doubt seriously that I will buy any CFExpress cards. They are crazy expensive and I see no practical benefit over the XQD cards.

    Both XQD and CFExpress work in the Z cameras, but the CFExpress cards, which were supposed to be price leaders, are crazy expensive. I think folks that shoot a lot of video benefit most with these cards.
