    I don't think it is that easy. I gather that the technologies are very different.

    Perhaps photo dealers do not want to compete with video dealers who are able to shift lots of XQD stock
    It may not be easy with existing chips, and the market would be very temporary.. I would think that the development effort would not be worth the reward. The main market for XQD is video and micro-SDHC would not be fast enough for that.

    I have to disagree - the principal market for the XQD was photography, in general - SDHC manage to get the images off the camera and onto the card pretty fast, and in my experience with pro video photographers, their equipment is not shifting over to XQD yet...

    Here in France I have yet to see CFexpress cheaper (let along half the price) of XQD, but it will no doubt come one day....

    I paid £100 for an XQD card recently*, I have seen them marginally cheaper but CFExpress cards are currently considerably more expensive, probably just as well that Nikon haven't updated the D4 firmware to accept them.

    *I need another one too. Compact flash is 1/4 the price.
