Nikon DSLR shooters have another option when it comes to memory cards. The company has announced that the D5, D500, and D850 now all support Type B CFexpress cards.
Nikon D series cameras have always been a favorite among photographers, and until the Z series came along, the D800 line was favored among video shooters. In fact, shows like FX's Wilfred and Showtime's Dexter shot on Nikon D800. With the D850 replacing the D810, it shows Nikon's commitment to the DSLR as it combines a 45.7-megapixel sensor with 4K UHD video in a body that's not much bigger than Canon's EOS R5.
The D5, D500, and D850 now join the newer D6 in supporting Type B CFexpress cards, so if you happen to own multiple models, it will allow you to use the same memory card across each camera.
Other updates in the firmware include selectable 2.4 and 5 GHz bands when connecting to wireless networks, and fixes to the shutter release function.
