EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon 5D Mark iii and 64Gigabyte SD card
« on: January 14, 2013, 07:57:48 PM »
good to hear someone responds here and the site is alive and kicking,

 i have a friend who has high expectations from CF cards, he wants to know if they are able to snap photos while shooting a video with out any notice, on a 5dm3too,  i yet to see that on any DSLR but i also never tried it with the newer cards, i do see a freeze in video for a whole sec and usually you shoot about 27-30 frames a sec so i will have to try it myself since i will have a lexar 32GB 1000x cf card in my hands within a week, also a 64GB /95mb SD card so ill try those.

If anyone here has tried to take photos while shooting video with a fast CF card do share the info, as far as i know with the SD card i have which is a sandisk 64GB/45mb atm  it freezes the video for a sec.

Rob's Tests reveal all and the other dudes statement is bunk. I have extreme III's and newer Ultra II's both 30 mb/s. The buffer from shooting raws gets jammed up and the progress light is glowing for a bit after the shooting stops. Shooting with my new Sandisk Extreme Pro 32 gig 95mbs, that sucker is done writing after i stop. The main thing i hated when testing my 5dm3 for a solid month after getting it was using the 30mb/s card i couldn't immediately review the newest image taken and i'd always be displaying an older photo. Now when i want to quick view the image date, its just there already and i don't have to skip ahead to the last image because when i hit the review button the last image shot is what i see.
if you still have a chance to read this post can you confirm if a 64GB Sandisk SD card at 95mb can fly or are you referring to a CF card?

I love my 60D.  And the 70D as listed isn't an adequate upgrade... I really don't want to pay for a 5d mkiii, but it looks like that is what my upgrade path will be.

That seems to fit with Canon's strategy.  The 60D was an upgrade path for Rebel/xxxD owners, and for 50D owners, the 60D wasn't an upgrade - the 7D was a better choice.  These specs are consistent with the same: xxxD -> 70Dor 6D, 60D -> 7DII or 5DIII.
i did exactly what you just said, i got the mkiii; NO REGRETS

EOS Bodies / Re: Error 80 - 5D Mark III
« on: January 04, 2013, 08:04:10 AM »
Yep..  Seems to be Eye-Fi related.. Regardless, if it's being used for writing or not.   I removed the Eye-Fi and have probably shot 3000 frames or more and have not received the error again.   I also low-level formatted all my cards in my PC...

FWIW...
i know the post is old but i just got a eye fi card and experienced this error 80 too, removing and re installing the battery got it back up and running

I was referring to both SD and CF with regard to the 5D3. I have recorded video on the 5D3 on both types of cards and have noticed no difference. Not to open another can of worms, but if Magic Lantern can provide higher bit rates, then SD vs. CF might matter more and, in this case, a fast CF card is likely to be preferred.

I really like the Hyperdeck Shuttle. It is elegant in its simplicity and provides a nice choice of codecs. It is also inexpensive compared to others. However, if your purpose for getting one is to use with the 5D3, you should wait to buy one until tests are done to verify that it mates well with whatever Canon comes out with in April.
the ninja 2 seems so tempting, zebra stripes, pass through video, high res screen, expensive but nice

Anyone here try a 128GB SD card with the mkiii?

Hope the title was not too vague, im trying to piece together a professional looking RIG, i got this cheapo unit http://67.222.47.190/ldmedia/product/PK008W/PK008W_show.jpg but when i went over to meet a friend who works for Raleigh Studios i told him i forgot it since he had a redrock micro unit for $2000 dollars, whatever, they are over priced if anyone asks me because we have a dremel set up and can drill into things, design them  myself all bt the matte boxes and smaller pieces like screws and bits for camera tripods.

Long story short, can anyone share their solutions with Professional looking, feeeling reliable rigs, so far it looks like a Cage rail support system is the best option, will allow me to attach a matte box with 4x4 filters (not the cheap small ones on ebay), then a nice shoulder pad with weights or battery pack, ebay seems to have some ok choices but i rather ask people who had their hands on units, i am in the south of france atm, i speak pigeon french if at all, i went to a few camera pro shops with sky high prices so its better i try on the net.

any advise welcomed, thanks in advance

I favor the faster CF and SD cards mostly because I can download them via my USB 3.0 card reader faster. Slower (Class 6) SD cards would cause problems with other Canon DSLRs (like the 550D/T2i and 600D/T3i). I stick with Sandisk Extreme (not Extreme Pro - though I have nothing against the "Pro"). Never had a problem with the camera writing to Sandisk Extreme's.

I'm looking forward to April's clean HDMI firmware update for the 5D3. I have a BlackMagic Design HyperDeck Shuttle (a very budget-friendly device, but with no monitor - only passing through to another monitor). It records from the 5D3 fine now, except that it isn't at full resolution and is only clean using Magic Lantern's Alpha release for the 5D3. There are some issues that remain to be seen with the firmware update. The biggest issue is how the HDMI output will treat the 24p framerate and whether it will have 24p out or if it will be embedded in the 1080i out. If you don't already have an external recorder, I'd wait to see reports of how each external recorder pairs with the 5D3 when the firmware is updated in April.
Thanks for the replies, are referring to Sandisk Extreme CF or SD cards in your post?

I was surprised to even hear about having to choose between cf and sd for performance, i will be using the mkiii 85% out of 100 for video, the rest for portraits, with the 6D, Nikon 600D and who knows what else is around the corner to wait till April sounds like bullocks, not very cool, obviously Canon is playing into the market and like Apple and other major players they probably have great stuff but holding back to see what everyone else is willing to put out for the price range, this is a drag because the only investment one can be sure of is glass here.

 
i am also looking into the BlackMagic Design "hyper deck", decent price, but again, new stuff around the corner means prices will drop.

Has the hyper deck given you any issues?, is it solid?
For the price of CF cards i cant see why anyone would not get this and rig it with a matte box and all.

EOS Bodies - For Video / CF or SD or ext for video on canon 5d mkiii?

Hey there everyone, new here, just checking out the site and asking around if any of you tested CF/SD and external gear like the Ninja etc with the Canon 5D mkiii

I just ordered mine from ebay in Hong Kong, http://cgi.ebay.fr/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110845014774&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

My first SLR btw, i have used a mkii and loved it, so now i am looking forward to my saved moneys worth and need to know what memory cards work fast, so far people online seem to suggest Lexar Professional 1000x cards and for external HD recording there are wifi options at 4:2:2 like this http://www.teradek.com/collections/cube and also direct like this http://cgi.ebay.fr/Blackmagic-Design-HyperDeck-Shuttle-SSD-Field-Recorder-/180692809706?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a122177ea

so please let me know anything, im also looking for a decent rig and already got this http://cgi.ebay.fr/New-DSLR-Rig-Shoulder-Mount-for-DV-Camera-Sony-Canon-550D-600D-60D-50D-1D-7D-5D-/221151420031?pt=UK_Tripods_Heads_Stablisers&hash=item337da6de7f yeah i know its BUTT UGLY, so im looking around at something with a matte box, fallow focus that i can put on my shoulder and tripod, possibly a cage, i like to get that cinema camera look for weddings.

hope to hear from you all soon
