Weird, right? That's what I thought.
To date, only one camera has come with a card slot as an option, and that would be the the Nikon D4. Apparently the switch over to a new card format won't come quickly. But the new format is supposed to be faster, and more secure with far fewer failures.
On Amazon, the new card can be found in a 32 GB version that writes at 125mb/s for a little over $200. Expensive.
Well Sony, the only real manufacturer that is pushing them now, just created and even faster version. The new S series card transfers at 168mb/s. How fast is that? Well you could dump a gig of images to your computer in 6 seconds. That is fast, my friend. Of course, you would need a XQD card reader with a thunderbolt connection to take advantage of that. AND (your going to love this) a 32GB version card will cost you $500. A 64GB version will cost you $750.
Never lose anything on your computer again.
Even if it a virus wipes it out,
your kid sets it on fire,
or aliens kidnap it for ransom
