Here is a little, and yet quite relevant rumor update.
We did tell you already that the Fujifilm X-H2S will be compatible with CFexpress Cards and SD-Cards.
Well, just as most of modern mirrorless cameras, also Fujifilm opted for CFexpress Type B cards.
Here are the current CFexpress Type B Card offerings:
- Sandisk CFexpress Type B
- Delkin CFexpress Type B
- Delkin Black CFexpress Type B
- Lexar CFexpress Type B
- Sony CFexpress Type B
- Prograde CFexpress Type B
- AV PRO SE CFexpress Type B
- Ritz Gear Video Pro CFExpress Type B
And here the mirrorless cameras that use CFexpress Type B or Type A.
- Mirrorless Cameras using CFexpress Type B Cards
Nikon Z6, Nikon Z7, Canon R5, Canon R3, Panasonic S1, Panasonic S1R
- Mirrorless Cameras using CFexpress Type A Cards
Sony A7SIII, Sony A1
So what are the Pros and Cons of each Type?
Pro: smaller (20mm x 28mm x 2.8mm) and the same slot can be used for both, CFexpress Type A and SD-Cards
Con: slower readout speed than CFexpress Type B (theoretical max 1,000MB/s)
Pro: twice as fast max. readout speed compared to CFexpress Type A (theoretical max 2,000MB/s)
Con: bigger than CFexpress Type A (38.5mm x 29.6mm x 3.8mm) and not compatible with SD Cards
The Fuji Solution
So, as most manufacturers, Fujifilm opted for the maximum speed. And in times of 4K/120p and 6K or 8K I think it’s good this way.
And for those, who do not need super fast CFexpress Type B cards, the Fujifilm X-H2S will offer also an SD-Card slot.
If I was to get an X-H2S, then I probably would buy a CFexpress card type B to store my RAW files there and use the UHS-II SD-Card to store the JPEG files as backup. Sounds like the best solution to me.
