Dave the camera is the bottleneck . you can stick as fast a card in as you like but it won write any quicker
If you look at the RG database (i know its not upto date) you will see at what point the camera just cant write any quicker.
and then it can actually be worse with new cards. Most/All cards are UDMA now but old bodies cant write to UDMA so the cards are also backward compatible . but if that compatibility is not so good the speeds can actually be less than with the old 'slow' non udma cards...Show more →
One of my problems is that I use Breeze to view my shoots( I don`t want to change) with the 1ds if you don`t have the camera set to raw+Jpeg and you want to view the larger file then you have to wait each time for BB to convert the raw whereas if you shoot raw+ j peg it uses the J peg to give the large view. What I`ve got used to doing is shooting raw+ L fine J peg. I just did some testing Sandisk extreme 1V 8 Gb raw + L J peg takes 20 secs for the red write light to go out but with raw + S J peg it goes out in 12 secs so that will have to be the way I go I suppose. Out of interest my 32Gb Duracell 60Mbs card only beats the sandisk by 2 secs on both configurations so you are on the button with it being the camera that bottlenecks. Don`t get me wrong, I knew this camera was a PITA for everything but IQ but you have to try
