Last week CFexpress was born. Sandisk put the first of this new generation of high-octane memory cards on sale - whilst almost simultaneously Canon launched the first camera that can use CFexpress cards. Now, at IBC 2019, Angelbird has become the second memory specialist to release CFexpress cards.

Angelbird promises us two ranges of CFexpress cards from the get-go. The AV PRO CFX memory card is designed for professional cinema cameras demanding high-speeds and extreme durability in the CFexpress Type-B form factor that will be used in the first cameras.
