Manfrotto has announced a new line of professional CFexpress Type B memory cards boasting read and write speeds of 1730MB/s and 1540MB/s respectively, to meet the cutting-edge demands of burst shooting and 4K, 6K and 8K video.

Available in 128GB or 256GB options, the new Manfrotto cards boast industrial strength and reliability, being built to withstand the most severe extremes. They're rated for temperatures from -13°F to 158°F / -25°C to 70°C, so they're good to go if you're shooting in the Sahara or the South Pole.
That robustness is matched in the cards' performance. With their PCle 3.0 interface, they boast ferocious read and write speeds that will keep up with you no matter what you're shooting, whether it's 4K video on the Panasonic S1 (opens in new tab), 5.9K Cinema Raw Light on the Canon EOS C500 Mark II (opens in new tab), or lightning-fast stills bursts on Canon and Nikon's professional DSLR cameras.
The Manfrotto Professional PCle 3.0 CFexpress Type B Memory Cards are available now, with the 128GB option costing $199.99 / £159.95 and the 256GB version $399.99 / £319.95. In the UK the two cards are sold exclusively through Manfrotto, and can be purchased here (opens in new tab).
