p.1 #1 · How fast of a CF card for Raw+Jpeg?


I need a new CF card for a event, and I'll be shooting Raw+Jpeg. I don't have much experience with CF cards. I'm currently thinking about a card with a 25mbps write speed, but I'm not convinced that'll be fast enough.

I'll be shooting with a Canon 20D.

Well since the 20D only writes around ~6MB/sec I don't think it really matters except for downloading them to the PC with a card reader.

The card won't be a bottleneck. The camera will.

Fear not, as the 20D will still deliver some nice files within it's limits
try to stay below ISO800
the AF tracking is not a strong point but for stationary subjects you'll be fine.

I have an entire portfolio in 11x14 shot with the 20D and it still holds up nicely.
