p.1 #1 · SD to CF adapter


Has anyone used an SD to CF adapter when upgrading to the 7D, 5D or 1D?

I went frome the 60D (SD card) to the 5D Mk2 which uses the CF card.

I have several Class 10 SD cards I'd like to continue to use.


Anyone?

Probably better off buying a decent cf card. The adapters are pretty slow. Memory nowadays is cheap . I bought a 32gig transcend 400x for less than 40 .
Any of the decent (I mean named brand adapters ) cost nearly half that.

Ed, I use the Extreme CF Adapter when I want to download images to my iPad. The write speed is fine, it's the
download that's a little slower...no biggie in the field/venue. They have their place, but using cards specific to slots
are always gonna be better.

Will what are you using to connect that adapter to the pad?

I bought the camera connecter kit with my Ipad . you get both an SD slot and min USB . both work well and I find the SD part plenty quick enough.

I take the SD card out of the adapter and use Apples camera connector, Ian.

I have an adapter but never use it - it's way too slow.

Ah ok I thought you were using a cf adapter for the iPad. I saw a 3rd party connected that takes cf cards into the iPad.

Anyway that's getting a tad off topic

I have some class 10 SD cards, and bought a cheap SD to CF adapter, and it's WAY slow. Sure, it works if you shoot Jpeg, but if you want to shoot 21MP RAW, then you will be waiting.

Also, the SD card works for video on 60D, but when used with the adapter in the 5D2, the video doesn't work more than like a second... Too slow...

+1. And does not always work. It is useful to do some transfers but I would not use it in camera even if it worked. Risk of corruption is not worth the price of a couple of 16GB 400x cards. Sell the SDs if you need to, but use quality CF cards.

Also, most of the memory has a limited write life anyways, so its not such a bad idea to replace cards every couple of years

I have both the SD-CF adapter and the micro-SD/CF adapter and they work fine. As has been said they are slower but for the way I shoot it doesn't matter. I actually only have them as backups to my regular CF cards.

I actually just got this one yesterday: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0048W4RV4/ref=oh_o00_s00_i00_details

The good, I can click off 22 raw shots before the buffer fills on my 7D. The bad, even reads are slow when looking at photos on the LCD. Only 3 seconds of video before it stops recording. So I think it will be fine for recycling my old class 10 SDHC cards. Not as good as CF cards obviously but I think its usable for simple shooting.

Its plenty big enough for my 7D . I also find fast enough. although they also do a 600x which is supposed to work really well in the 7D . but it is a bit more.
I used to be a sandisk person but many on here rave about the Transcend cards so I thought I would give one a go. and on the whole im pretty impressed .

they also do a 16gig version of that card but at 35 its not such good value

I have the fastest there is and it has a very slow controller. The average adapters have even slower controllers. None are UDMA which is what the 7D shines with. Since you are saving tons of money not getting filmed developed, why not get the Extreme 90MB/s card which the camera makes full use of?
