    Just checked. Works fine with Sandisk Extreme Pro 95mps in 8, 16, 64gb SD versions, and 32 and 64gb CF versions

    As I travel / use other cameras that all take CF cards and some only CF it is sort of nice to have it. I am wondering and just ordered a SDHC to CF card adapter just to see what and where that might work.

    In your case it is an advantage but I also use the D750 which has two SD cards and I'd have to buy a reader for the CF on my Mac which makes it a useless addition for me.

    I am wondering if you bought cheap possibly fake Lexar CF cards, I know there have been some going around.

    Always possible, whatever price is paid. But, they still worked in everything else, tested out fine on the computer. The issue should really be that the D810 is overly picky about cards.

    If one needs cards when out on a shoot the choice can be limited, the camera needs to work with any card that check out and works on other equipment ideally.

    Just thinking of a possible comparison. The limited number of CF cards accepted might be compared to a film camera which only worked with Tri-X, Kodachrome and FP4 films and non of the others.

    Re: D810 and CF cards

    I mentioned earlier that I was going to try an SD to CF adapter, this just arrived from China. Works fine in the CF slot with an 64GB SDXC card and even works with a micro SDHC in an adapter inserted into the CF adapter.

    Maybe not the ideal way to go, but why my concern about this I just tried to buy a CF card locally (reasonable size city) and only found 1 CF card available, expensive no name 8GB.

    In the past when travelling had kit stolen, realize that this could happen and simply not be able to get a working CF card for the D810.

    Many card manufacturers make cards that don't meet the interface spec 100%. Its not only Nikon cameras that have issues with some cards whatever the type.
    When you consider the sheer speed and large amount of data that is been transferred in the newer cameras I am not surprised that there are occasional problems.


    You used to get the same thing when buying add on memory for your PC.

    Re: D810 and CF cards

    I too have a Nikon D810 with CF issues. I bought 4 Sandisk 32GB CF cards, put one in my camera at home and took a few test shots. We just returned from Kenya where my goal was some serious wildlife photography. Alas, as soon as I turned my camera on I had a card error. I couldn't figure it out since everything had worked fine at home, but once I removed the CF card, the camera thankfully worked fine. I had to rely solely on my SD. Fortunately, my safari guide was able to have his wife purchase some extra SD cards for me and had a runner meet us with them. Needless to say, this was a nuisance for all and an expense that shouldn't have been necessary. I will try the 64GB (as noted in another response) and try that.
