The Sony 160GB CFexpress Type A Card provides fast read speeds up to 800 MB/s along with write speeds up to 700 MB/s. This quick performance benefits recording a variety of video resolutions, bit-rates, and compressions, as well as high-resolution continuous raw.
Super-charge your professional video and photography workflows with Sony's CFexpress Type A memory cards—ideal for advanced cameras like the α7S III. The world's first CFexpress Type A cards, they deliver extraordinary speed, around twice that of the best SDXC cards, in a similarly compact body. With write speeds up to 700 MB/s and professional-level durability, Sony CFexpress Type A cards open up a wide range of new imaging possibilities.
Beyond its speed, this TOUGH memory card also has a reinforced physical design to withstand falls from up to 4.6m and has been rigidity tested to 70 N of force. It's also resistant to extreme temperatures, X-rays, electrostatic, and UV lighting. Offering further protection, File Rescue recovery software can be downloaded for recovering lost or even accidentally deleted files and Media Scan Utility can be used to automatically scan CFexpress cards and inform you of the flash memory condition.
Partnered with professional equipment like the α7S III, CFexpress Type A memory cards are perfect for the unpredictability of sport and location shoots or the hazards of outdoor expeditions. They are designed for extended professional use in the most challenging environments—from snow-covered mountains to sand-blown deserts—so you can shoot, swap and store with total confidence.
Dramatically expand your photographic possibilities, with uncompressed continuous RAW shooting for fast-moving action such as motorsports and wildlife. Writing speeds of up to 700 MB/s far outperform even the best SDXC cards, ensuring ultra-fast camera buffer clearance for responsive, continuous shooting.
Dramatically accelerate your workflow with the optimized MRW-G2 card reader and ultra-fast read speeds of up to 800 MB/s for data transfer and backup.
Sony CFexpress Type A cards are optimized for continuous, high-bandwidth data writing, making them ideal for professional high-bitrate video recording such as 4K 120p capture on cameras like the α7S III, where dependability is critical. For extra reassurance and video recording stability, they also carry the VPG (Video Performance Guarantee) 400.
Thanks to Sony's unique TOUGH card design, these CFexpress Type A cards offer over 10x greater bend resistance than standard CFexpress cards. Designed for absolute dependability, their rigidity is tested to 150 newtons to protect your card data during drops from up to 7.5m — 5 times that mandated by the CFexpress Type A standard.
