Manfrotto recently launched a new lineup of CFexpress Type B memory cards in two flavors: the Manfrotto Professional CFexpress Type B 128GB and 256GB cards. These cards can reach a maximum write speed of 1730Mo/s and a read speed of up to 1540Mo/s.
Earlier this year, Manfrotto introduced its line of “Pro Rugged” SD/micro SD/CF cards. These cards are waterproof (except the CF ones), they support a 20kg payload on them, and they can work under harsh conditions from -25°C up to 85°C. With more and more cameras using CFexpress cards, like the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III, Canon EOS R5, Nikon Z 6 II, and so on, Manfrotto is joining the CFexpress party.
Manfrotto Professional CFexpress Type B Memory Cards
The Manfrotto Professional CFexpress Type B memory cards are available in two sizes: 128GB and 256GB. Both cards feature blazing fast read speeds of 1730Mo/s and write speeds up to 1540Mo/s. In short, you shouldn’t have any problems recordings 4K 120p, 8K, and RAW footage onto these bad boys.
These memory cards use a PCIe 3.0 interface, and you can use them in temperatures ranging from -25°C to 70°C. However, these memory cards are not waterproof.
Price and Availability
All Manfrotto CFexpress Type B memory cards are available now. The 128GB model retails for $199.99, while the 256GB version is $399.99. This is the same price as the Sony CFexpress Type B TOUGH memory cards.
