SanDisk CFast 2.0 Cards Corrupt Some Canon 1D X Mark II Photos

Canon has released an official service advisory for the 1D X Mark II that you’ll want to pay attention to if you’re one of the few already using the new camera. Apparently, some SanDisk CFast 2.0 cards might corrupt some of your images.

If a SanDisk CFast card is inserted into the camera or a card reader, the bottom part of still images recorded may be corrupted.

This phenomenon is confirmed in images recorded in both the RAW and JPEG formats. In the RAW file, the image corruption may appear in the bottom right corner of the image. While in the JPEG file, the image corruption may appear in the lower third area of the image.
