I used to use hand straps but found they get in the way more than help if you try and shoot portrait
I just use rapid straps now

Thanks for all the feedback!
I haven't seen the issue again this weekend. I did an in-camera erase/format and have been trying to tax the setup with full RAW and JPG; and shooting bursts.
I am glad that it seems to be more of a card issue instead of a camera one.
Sounds like SanDisk cards are on the nose-what recommendations are there for a replacement? What I would really like would be a Eye Fi CF card (if only they made one!).
This camera is a 5D mark 2 (not mark 3) so there will only be one card slot. I only bought the mark 2 after the 3 was released. A mark 3 purchase had a green light but I could not justify the additional cost for this hobby.
I am just loving the mark 2 (despite this 'card' issue). The image quality and new lenses are amazing me every day--it is a great step up from the G9!
I had a Tamron. I sold my Tamron. Would take a lot of great reviews for me to go back to a Tamron.+1 I'm in the same boat once bitten twice shy, I am looking forward to seeing how the 24-70L II is going to perform
Sorry I was wrong, this guy does tooI've never seen anyone co-ordinate their wardrobe with their teeth before
It's late, and am defending my dissertation on Friday so I should be asleep, but I just lost my S___ on that comment.
It will fire them all, just make sure your drive mode is not in single shot and is in high speed mode. It's an indispensable and well thought out feature saving you from having to lug around a shutter release for long exposure brackets.
Holy Hell. I've been out shooting with the 5D3 and I just have to say that the IQ rocks. I think I love everything about this camera except the reach. Personally, I think it knees the 1D4 in the groin. Now, if they could just give me this level of IQ with a 1.6 crop, I would be a happy man, though I think it'll probably be about until the 7D Mark III until we get there.
I think it's more been that they've been limited by processing power, since processing only cares about total MP count and not density, than not wanting high MP on FF, I think. 18MP on APS-C or FF requires the same processing power. But 48MP on FF takes a LOT more processing power than 18MP on APS-C (48MP is 18MP APS-C density scaled to FF).
nuther related note, I think processing requirements go up somewhat if people also select in-camera hi-iso NR. Sure can slow down the shooting speed if I accidentally turn that on... clogs the buffer faster anyway. I reduce in-camera overhead with all processing off, raw only, no jpgs either... unless I need really long bursts at full speed then raw gets turned off and jpg compression to minimum.
if sensor density goes up, not only does the size of the data array increase but the required noise reduction processing going on, even for the raw files, will add a bit more overhead compared to a larger pixeled (lower noise) sensor. Yet another reason to wish for less sensor noise at all sensitivities.
