What is XQD

Posted by VTOP-eMall on

XQD is a media card format that was designed to be a successor to the CompactFlash card. XQD has been adopted by Nikon and was first incorporated into the D4 and D4S and subsequently into the D5, D500 and D850 DSLRs and Z 7 and Z 6 full-frame mirrorless cameras.

XQD cards are based on the PCI Express® Gen 1 interface (PCIe) and support bus speeds up to 250MB/s and provides a solid base for future performance enhancements. XQD cards have begun to be deployed within the professional imaging and video markets.


XQD cards have the following dimensions

Length 38.5 mm
Width 29.6 mm
Thickness Including Label Area 3.8 mm
