To accompany the new Sony A7S III, Sony has announced a new CFexpress Type A memory card and a card reader.
The CEA-G series card is the first CFexpress Type A card to come to market. It’s smaller than the CFexpress Type B cards that we’ve seen to date and it can be used interchangeably with SD-type media.
CFexpress Type A cards aren’t as fast as Type B cards, but they offer read speeds of up to 800MB/s and write speeds up to 700MB/s, which are fine for high-quality 4K video recording.
The new card will be available from September in 80G and 160Gb capacities for €230 and €440 respectively.
CFexpress Type A and SD card Reader
Sony has also announced a new MRW-G2 card reader for CFexpress Type A and SD-type cards. The card reader will retail for €140.
