Re: Compact Flash cards for the D800. Help requested

I'd stay clear from Kingston and Kingmax for now. My Kingston 600X 32G and Kingmax 133X 32G do not work on d800. Both of which work perfectly on D3S.

I have not tried other CF cards yet.

For now I am using Sandisk Extreme SD cards. They seems working.

Reading I found that Sandisk CF 400x 64GB have the same speed (RAW) as the 64 GB Sandisk SD 600x

So I plan to get the pair, 600x for the SD, 400x for the CF, for the price of only one 600x CF card

Radu, thank you that's really helpful. I will probably do the same.

Now I wonder if anyone uses a fast Kingston CF card with the D800
