Back in February 2019, the company announced the development that D5, D850, and D500 DSLR cameras will get firmware updates for CFExpress memory card support. Since then we’ve never heard any updates on this topic. Now it seems that the time has come for this firmware update and Nikon D5, D850 & D500 will benefit from CFExpress Cards firmware update soon.
On the other hand time is very close for the Nikon Z6 II and Nikon Z7 II announcements. There is a very good chance that Nikon may say something about this firmware update. Check out the firmware details below.
The new firmware will provide support for CFexpress, a new standard for memory cards. Having passed durability tests in which they were inserted and removed from a camera 12,000 times, these memory cards offer users a greater sense of security. They also offer high-speed performance that will provide users with a more efficient workflow. After upgrading, users will be able to use both CFexpress as well as XQD cards in their camera interchangeably.
