@taperoo2k: I love that 2nd photo, the arms blurred in the foreground makes it feel more immediate and more like I'm there

5 shot HDR @ 1.4
Did not see this one until today (June 18th).
Great photo - it makes me thirsty and wanting to drink one. So the HDR effect works
For Video Drizzt is right (long live the Forgotten Realms and Greyhawk). However for rapid fire stills here is the difference between UDMA 6 and 7.

UDMA 7 26 3.5 sec

Or, if you're paranoid, have it write the same image to both cards simultaneously.
That's not paranoid, that's just good sense. Personally, once the images are transferred to the computer they are immediately backed up to an external drive. Before the 1D X, the only time there was just one copy of the images - and thus, increased risk of loss - was on the card after capture but before transfer. That's one reason I'm glad the 1D X has dual CF instead of CF+SD - I can write RAW to both cards simultaneously without a big hit on buffer clearing speed.
I have three 32 GB 90 MB/s cards, with simultaneous writing to both. Slot 1 gets swapped out for image transfer, and the card in slot 2 gets formatted only when all images are backed up to two external drives in different physical locations. Ok, maybe a little paranoid.
Get an UDMA card! You won't regret it. You will need speed for video especially!!!
Add a few decent lenses (50mm f/1.4 is a great starting point) and you can get started producing great images.
I don't use spot metering, and with the instant feedback of an LCD i don't know why anyone would. I really don't know why i would want it linked to differing AF points either. But i'm weird....
Thanks guys. I will go for Lexar Professional 1000x 32 GB CompactFlash Card LCF32CTBNA1000. I will get one card to test it and take it from there. I would rather get 64GB but it gets pricey.
I do shoot pictures of running horses often so I need to clear buffer as fast as possible. Coming from 1D Mark II N I am sure I'll be happy with this upgrade. I want to use full writing speed of the camera..
I hear ya! Try shooting rapid fire on your 1D Mark II or worse, the 1Ds3, rapid-fire RAW. I locked mine up once for 30 seconds while the buffer cleared, lol!
