I understand the argument going here but when the canon 45megapixel comes along aren't those of you with the slower 400x cards going to regret it?


When Canon come with a 45MP camera the 1000x cards only cost 1/3 of their prices today. Never buy a card today because you need it a few years later.
And we don't even know if Canon use CF cards then. Maybe they use CFast cards

Is the download speed from a card reader more closely aligned with the reading or writing speed, or neither?

most readers I have owned are tilted towards the read cycle. writing again is more power consumptive.

I'm planning to get a 1DX soon, and was pondering this very question. I doubt I'll be filling the buffer as a lion has lunch (the zoo where i live seems to give them calorie controlled meals...), but I would like to experiment with video. will the 800x handle video or should I bite the bullet and go 1000x?
thanks.

Nearly every card from the brand names have the VPG-20 sign on them. You don't need a fast card for video. Lexar 400x, Transcend 400x or Sandisk Extreme is fast enough

Thanks. Writing speed in the camera is key for me. I can be patient while downloading (up to a point), but not while the buffer is full.

if you have a 1DX and fill the buffer while shooting still images you need to reevaluate your shooting method/style as you are going to bury yourself in way too many unneeded images that look a whole lot alike.


If you're shooting raw, then depending on the card and ISO, it may be around 50 frames with the 1DX. At 12fps, it doesn't take long to hit the buffer. With fast-paced action, there can be significant changes occurring each 1/12th of a second. Therefore it's up to each of us to tailor how we shoot to what we shoot, rather than be blindly told we need to change what we're doing. Obviously one consequence is a lot more editing work, but isn't that worth the tradeoff of more selection? And, apps are available that can make short-shrift of high volume editing, if you know what you're doing.

You will still get a rather good number of shots for a selection. Pressing the shutter button for 30 sec with my 1DX will give me about 160 images with a good card.

Not blindly, with experience. But then some are never or will be never satisfied. For those there is the black magic.
