I'm expecting a Nikon D500 today and for the past couple days have been trying to locate XQD mem cards for it... B&H, Adorama and my local guys are all back ordered/out of stock...(Lexar 32 & 64 GB 2933x XQD 2.0) Can I, or will I be able to use it with just the Lexar Pro 1000 cards being I can make it the primary card? I have a Soccer game to shoot tomorrow eve and would like to use it if possible. I ordered a Sony card in the mean time but not sure if it'll get here in time. I have my 7200 to fall back on if needed.
Thanks for any help.
Doug

Yes, it just will be slower. The buffer will load faster but the burst speed will be the same. I own a D500.

Note: Do not forget a dedicated card reader for the new XQD card.

amazon (in stock)

Your D500 will work well with ANY XQD card on the market, I have used several 1000X, 1400X, and 2933X cards in mine with no issues whatsoever. Be sure to check the Firmware when you get your camera, the latest is 1.10 and 2.013.

Thanks Rong, That's what I figured. My other FF bodies worked fine with only one card. Yeah the XQD cards are for sure faster, but I'm sure you know, we gotta play with new toys right away. They had the card reader in stock, which is coming with the Sony card, hopefully it'll be here tomorrow...

Thanks again.

Thanks MT...I have on order a couple Lexmar 2933 32 GB cards, (out of stock) so for the mean time I should be getting a Sony M series 32 gb tomorrow. As far as the firmware, it one of the first things I check. But thanks just the same.

I have a D500. I started out using it with SD cards before a got an XQD. I got a Lexar 2933 card and Lexar XR2 professional workflow XQD card reader. That's a real nice card reader.

Same here you can use either or in the D500 but the XQD cards are faster

Why would you need a dedicated card reader when you can connect the camera directly to a computer?

Okay I own a D500 are you stuck on using Lexar XQD cards? I myself am pretty anal about the brands I use, but B&H does carry and have in stock the Sony XQD cards and being anal as I stated before I figure Sony sensor Sony cards only negative is that they are more expensive

Simple: Convenience.

For one, I don't need to bend over, climb under my desk every time I need to plug in a camera wire which would be often, if it were just one camera and didn't need the cable for tethering, maybe I'd leave the wire plugged in. Second, all my USB ports are spoken for, (8 or 10 in total) one of which is for a SD card reader and the other spare I have will be for the XQD card reader when it comes later. They sit at a convenient within reach place on my desk...and I had a spare $24. Oh, another reason, and an off the wall once in a million odds type thing, let say I get a voltage spike and my APC units don't protect my system while my camera happens to be plugged in and my computer shuts down, burns out, frys, or maybe spikes the camera. I think Id rather take a chance on a $24 card reader or a $59 mem card becoming corrupt than taking a chance on one of my $2,000 - $6,000 cameras. And another reason, Lets say my camera is plugged in and sitting on my desk, I get up and catch the cable with my foot and either rip the cable from the camera, or worse, pull the camera off the desk... the more I think about it and if I had the time, the more reasons why I use one. Already I've wasted to much of it.
