Nikon recently announced firmware updates for the Z6 II, Z7 II and Z9 cameras. These updates focus on enhancing the video recording capabilities of the said cameras. In addition, the Japanese manufacturer announced the sale of its first CFexpress Type B memory card.
The 660GB Nikon MC-CF660G CFexpress Type B memory card features a maximum read speed of 1700 MB/s and a maximum write speed of 1500 MB/s. According to the manufacturer, this card is “optimized for intensive video and photo shooting by high-end cameras such as the flagship mirrorless Z9.
The new memory card is set to go on sale this June for a manufacturer-recommended retail price of $730. For comparison, that price is $100 more than the price of the 1TB Delkin CFexpress Type B card, which has slightly higher maximum read and write speeds of 1,730MB/s and 1,540MB/s, respectively. Pre-orders for the 660GB Nikon MC-CF660G CFexpress Type B memory card have already begun.
