WHY PROGRADE DIGITAL?

PERFORMANCE

ProGrade Digital understands the stringent requirements you set for yourself and offers CFexpress memory cards and memory card readers to support you. When your livelihood, client trust, and reputation are dependent on how well your gear performs, you need the performance, quality, and reliability ProGrade Digital offers.

QUALITY

To ensure our cards have the lowest possible field failure rate we perform time-consuming and rigorous testing processes. By the time our cards hit the market, they have undergone hours of testing that our competitors do not complete. When you purchase a CFexpress card from ProGrade Digital you will have the highest level of assurance your card will perform flawlessly.

RELIABILITY

We test all of our CFexpress memory cards to make sure they operate within thousands of camera models and exceed the quality compliance standards the manufacturers set. Our cards are verified to operate within specific camera models - just browse our compatibility sheets!

CUSTOMER SUPPORT

We strongly believe that our customers come first, so if you have any issues at any point in your buying process or ownership of our cards we will be right there to assist you. Our customer support is second to none and we look forward to introducing you to it!

REFRESH PRO ENABLED

To maintain maximum performance of your CFexpress memory cards you need Refresh Pro. Refresh Pro ensures your cards are up for the high-speed photography and video capture you throw at them. Our memory cards are Refresh Pro enabled meaning they perform two key functions: health monitoring and sanitizing. The health function measures the overall health of the memory card and provides feedback on the remaining life of the flash memory. The sanitize operation performs a deep clean, restoring the memory card to its original factory performance. Sanitize has been a function of CFast(TM) cards since they were introduced and ProGrade Digital now brings this functionality to SDXC(TM), microSD(TM) and CFexpress (TM) cards.

TESTIMONIALS

WHAT OTHER SAY ABOUT US
ETHAN R.

The fastest most reliable memory card I have ever bought
This has to be my favorite customer service experience I have ever had. I went on the website and found the product I wanted was sold out. I called the phone number on the website and Ed, the VP and Co-founder answered the phone. He was able to find out a new shipment was coming in the same day and had his warehouse set everything up for me to have it next day shipped. A very professional and kind person.

On top of this the quality of the memory cards are amazing, I have a GH5 and I needed the reliable read and write speed. These cards delivered perfectly for my trip to Bali. I will be buying more products from Prograde.

Thank you again Ed!

Different. Genuinely different.
This isn't just a private label. Somehow, they got a factory to tool up with an improved polymer, improved PCB, lower resistance, higher power handling...
I was wondering if these things were worth it, or even good at all. They are.
All the real specifications are right there in your face. No nonsense. You know precisely what it's going to do, and it's built to last and endure all those high data rate cycles.
People don't think about that. This stuff does wear, and heat is how it happens. This card can take a beating, and is worth every penny. I know where I'm getting my cards from now on.

Fast, Reliable Cards, Won't be Buying Any Other Brands
I've been a professional full-time photographer for more than ten years and I know that the most important thing from every shoot, the reason the clients are paying me, is for the photos and videos that I create from that shoot. Ever since the release of the Canon 5D Mk III, I've been duplicating data for my still images during every shoot, writing each image to two cards which made me feel confident that I'd never lose an image (and I never have), but this last year I started shooting video for clients and purchased the Canon EOS R, which only has one card slot. Since the content I produce is the most important thing and I could no longer duplicate it on the spot, I knew that I had to get the most reliable SD Cards I could. In the past I've used Lexar cards for my entire career, but from online reviews, it appears that their quality has gone down in the last few years (the company was also sold during this time), and I cannot afford the risk of losing any content. I had heard of Prograde from a friend, so I started researching them and through my research was convinced that they make superior cards to other manufacturers an I ended up purchasing one of their v90 cards. The card is so incredibly fast and I'm very confident in the safety of my data on this card. I have a Lexar card that's rated fast enough for me to shoot 4K video on it, but in reality it won't buffer fast enough and can't keep up with the camera, so I was forced to shoot in 1080p with that card. I've never been able to out shoot my prograde card, or seen it bog down or slow down in anyway. I'll be buying only prograde cards from now on.
