Sony reveals mega cards!
Posted on Jul 15, 2023 by Samara Husbands
Sony’s new CFexpress Type A memory cards are now available in sizes up to virtually 2TB, but will cost a staggering £1550/$1399 – or £860/$750 for the smaller version
The new CEA-M1920T and CEA-960T conform to CFexpress 2.0 and VPG200 standards and offer massive 1920GB and 960GB capacities respectively.
The VPG200 rating guarantees fast and stable video recording without dropped frames at 200MB/s for an extended period – even when recording XAVC S-I 4K footage and high bit rates. The cards are resistant to bending and drop impact and feature dust and moisture sealing.
Type A memory cards are half the size of Type B, and even smaller than SD cards. They fit the Sony A1, A7S III, FX6 and FX9.
The cards are made from alloy for superior heat transmission, long-term stability and reliable operation when recording large volumes of data.
Sony’s free desktop application, Media Scan Utility, diagnoses the state of flash memory in the cards, and Memory Card File Rescue recovers accidentally deleted image data. Raw still images and 4K movie data are supported.
