Site Information / Re: Canon Rumors in Costa Rica

Enjoy your travel.
My wife is coming from CR and we are living in France. But, each time we can, we go to Costa Rica (almost every year).  Right now she is there too enjoying the summer.
Aprovecha del sol, la naturaleza y la calidad de los ticos !! Pura Vida!!

Is there any way to low level format a cf card in a 5DIII?

As said before, it's better to do it from your computer than from your camera. It's long enough to use a lot of battery. And maybe down your battery before finish to format.

You can do it looking in your menu and do "format".

But maybe you will prefer to use it to shoot than to format  ;)

other thing, you will probably change your processor. Intel specs shows that it doesn't manage more than 8Go (have a look on intel's website).
I7 will be perfect and manage 32Go (I5 3rd generation manage 32Go of ram as well). Depends on how much you want to spend.
Ram disk will be necessary if you want to work on very large film. As videos.

+1 for Ram. You have only 4Go of ram, this is enough if you use your windows and smalls applications. If you want to win a little bit of time, increase your ram, 16Go can be enough if you don't work all the time with photoshop or editing video. The more you will do the more time you will loose if your system is not enough.
Another thing is your OS. You need a windows OS working with 64Bit. If  not you won't be able to use so much memory and so you won't win anything putting more RAM.
So first : OS system in 64Bit
Second : put more memory. look how much you can put on your motherboard. More is better, but you will really feel a difference between 4 and 16 Go. If you can more it will be easier as well.
Later you can change processor I7 is faster and will increase the power of your computer (but needs memory too).
Hope that will help you.

Some attachment  from my shoots in Costa Rica.
Some of them made with a sigma 105 f2.8 macro and other ones with sigma 100-300 f4 (not stabilized).
first one : 105mm, 1/400, Iso 400, F3.5 (sigma 105 f2.8 macro) : Gray-tailed Mountain-gem
Second one : 105mm, 1/320, Iso 400, F5.0 (same lens ) : Scintillant Hummingbird
then : 137mm, 1/640, Iso 400, F4.5 (Sigma 100-300 EX f2.8 ) : Green Violet-ear
And last one : 300mm, 1/400, Iso 800, F4.0 (same lens)

You can recognize the mytical Quetzal You can see this one in the rio savegre mountains (Costa Rica) where i have made the others pictures from the Hummingbirds.

All the pictures made without tripod (I don't have stabilization on these lenses), that explains why i used a 400 or 800 Iso, and so fast shutter speed.

Hope you'll like it, this is my first post.
