Pricewatch Deals / Re: Huge SanDisk Sale at B&H
« on: May 18, 2012, 02:07:10 PM »
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?
