Thanks all.  I will first try to order another card maybe two 16gb or just one 32gb class 10 extreme from SanDisk.

Also, I will search for a tutorial on how to change VBR in ML.

Best,

Jason

If you buy a SanDisk 32GB Extreme Class 10 card from SanDisk you will pay $150. The same card at B&H is $42. If you buy from B&H or Adorama, it will not be a counterfeit... The 32GB Extreme Pro is $85 at B&H.

Lenses / Re: B+W Filters compared to Promaster Filters?
« on: June 01, 2012, 02:47:26 AM »
I have a neutral density filter from ProMaster. The first time I put it on a lens, the EF 24-70 f/2.8, was at a beach on a day that was windy and cold. After using it for an hour or so, I could not get it off the lens.  When I got back home, I tried to get it off again with no luck. The following day I decided to take it to the store where I had bought both the filter and lens. Before I left, I tried to remove the filter again, and it came off easily.

I think it was a temperature effect. The lens/filter had been room temperature when I put the filter on. The lens/filter cooled down at the beach and the metal on lens must have contracted more than the metal on the filter.

One reason why I prefer B+W over Hoya (rebranded or not) is that a filter is more than just glass.  B+W uses brass for the mounting rings, others use aluminum.  Brass has a lower coefficient of thermal expansion than aluminum, meaning less chance of the threads binding.

Even so, a set of filter wrenches (~$5) is a good idea.

+1! That's why all my filters are Heliopan! Excellent German glass with solid brass rings! If you are doing any kind of work where filters come on and off (UV + Polarizer, UV + ND, UV + Softar...) you will instantly appreciate brass rings and never use anything else again!

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Huge SanDisk Sale at B&H

Thinking about getting the 128GB UDMA7 CF cards for my Mark III and the 7D.  Worth it?  Compatible?

Can't speak to the 7D - don't own one!

The 128GB SanDisk is a great deal at $609... But the 128GB Lexar 1000X is $726...

If you look at the Rob Galbraith report the Lexar 1000's are the speed demons with the Mark III...

The Extreme Pro's make up the next fastest group; with the 128GB UDMA7 at the top...

If you want to maximize the burst rate, and sustain it, they appear to be the way to go...

Aargh! They won't ship APO! It's either B&H or Newegg now...

If the order is less than $3,000 Adorama DOES ship to APO addresses

Good to know! However, the 5D Mark III is $3500 so it didn't help me in this case...

Got my body only order from B&H first thing this morning.  Sixth digit is a 3.  I feel like I just got my Red Ryder BB gun!  Looking forward to unpacking it, charging the battery, setting it up and trying it out over the weekend.  I have a definite use for it late next week.

scotta, what date did you order your body?

Old Shooter - have you tried any services like http://www.shipitapo.com before?


Thanks PhotoNoob! No, I've never used their services before. B&H and Newegg have always been my go to stores. But after nearly a month of waiting, I would like to jump on the first "In-Stock" I can find! They aren't as expensive as I thought they would be!

Ordered a body from B&H on 04/18. Waited. Waited. Never received any updates from their sales department or customer service.

Saw the body for $3445 on the AAFES (miltary PX) website IN-STOCK! Jumped on it and got a confirmation email that the body would ship 05/12!

Cancelled my order with B&H so I wouldn't end up owning two bodies.

Tracked my order on AAFES today and it says backordered until 06/15! "Oops! We're sorry! Our mistake!"

OH...MY...GOD... :o :( >:( >:( >:(

Out of bodies and kits now...

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5dM3 dual card write speed results
« on: May 06, 2012, 10:50:03 AM »
Very interesting! Your results agree with Rob Galbraith's!

http://www.robgalbraith.com/bins/camera_wb_multi_page.asp?cid=6007-12452

Basically, the fastest CF cards will write 4x faster than the fastest SD cards...

If you want to maximize your burst rate, Lexar 1000x is the way to go!

Save your money on the SD card; even the Extreme Pro's can't hit 20MB/s on the 5DIII...

Wonder how this would have worked out if Canon had enabled UHS-1 on the SD slot?
