| p.1 #6 · Quick Question on 5D mark iii dual card write times |
I just got my Lexar 1000x CF card and have a 16GB 30MBs SD card. What I have found is with Raw -> CF and M JPG->SD I get no improvement over my 7 shot buffer spray.
1. Removing the CF card and simply writing L or M JPG->SD card could shoot 80 shots before slowing.
2. Removing the SD card and using just the CF Card I can shoot 20 RAW shots before slowing.
It appears the camera itself is impacting the performance when using dual cards not the cards themselves. My guess is due to writing 2 different format types concurrently the processing slows significantly. Only way to verify would be with a 1000x SD card but 5D3 can't handle those, if they exist.
Yeah , probably in much the same way as the 7D was .
Same card/s . I would get 7 raw+jpeg (VF said 6) before the firmware update . And after the update I get 18-19 .
And none of my cards are that quick . The quickest is a transcend 400x but I've tried very old sandisk ultra cards and the result is Basicly the same .
So I'm pretty sure the 7D was artificially hamstrung by canon and wouldn't be to surprised if the 5D3 is to some extent either
