* Although I use the XQD card as my main card, I do the obvious thing and set the D4 to backup to the CF card for every shot. This works fine for everything but shoots requiring high frame rates, e.g. sports.

* If I am traveling extremely light and don't have an ultrabook available, I just copy from the XQD card to a CF card, making as many backups as I want, as Linwood suggests. Although this is slow and uses battery power, it works well if I am able to fit an entire day's shooting onto XQD cards. It might not be practical for anyone who has just the 16GB XQD card that came "free" with some D4s.
