| p.3 #3 · Anyone use SD card as back-up in 5D3 for weddings? |
I shoot with both types of cards in the camera permanently and write RAW to both cards. The SD card is the 95mb/s version, (even though I realise that at the moment it is not being used to anywhere near that speed in the camera).
Have never had a slowdown during a wedding.
I also shoot basketball with the camera and generally shoot at the fps rate the camera will allow. More often than not I'm only shooting in bursts of 5-7 images, sometimes a few quick singles before that burst and sometimes one or two after the main burst. The camera hasn't slowed the frame rate, but the 'working' light is lit for maybe 5 seconds or so after a run of action like that. So, I can still keep shooting. Can't see that sort of thing coming up too often at a wedding. That said, the example of repeated smaller burst building up in the buffer over time, like during a grand entrance/exit, does seem more likely to occur. But whether it would cause the camera speed to slow down is another question.
