I made the test and both cards gave me identical number of photos (75) and slowed down at same time (4.5 secs after starting).

Wopbv please do not trash your bad cards, most of them have life long warranty, just send them back for replacement!

I will later today make a test: I will shoot with the cards individually in my camera and keep the shutter pressed for 10 seconds. If at end of 10 seconds both cards have equal number of shots, my concerns are over. In any case I will pack spare cards. Am taking a laptop and will empty cards as needed.

I will set the camera to manual, ISO 800, 1/1000s.

Will update.

Thanks so much for the replies.
So do I conclude that the 1dc will work equally fast with the 128gb card? Thx

Hi friends.
I am going to Tanzania for 3 weeks in August and will shoot with 1Dc and 5D3. I recently bought 128gb cards for video on  1dc.
My confusion/question: Will the 128 gb cards be slower than the 32 gb 1000x cards? If I use the 128 GB cards with the 1dc will it slow it down? Read/write/buffer speed on the 1dc is more important to me than size of card. I am anticipating using the 12fps of the 1dc quite a bit and do not want the card to be a bottle neck.

If the 128 gb card will indeed be slower, then I will just carry the 32 gb 1000x cards.

Thanks for your time, and I will not be shooting video.

And he needs to learn to hand hold the camera properly!! Is he not supposed to rest the lens on his left palm?!??

Tell your friend clearly that you are not the best person for the job. it is your first time and the inexperience will be evident in the results and at the wedding itself.
She should hire someone with experience whose portfolio she likes and have you in addition.

Danger danger!!

Okay, I know this is going to come off as assholish to sensitive people, but I don't mean it that way, I'm just really curious why some people do reviews like this.

I have a feeling people like to hear themselves talk or see themselves on video.  This review could have easily been done as a simple web page or even PDF.  We are coming to a time when the bandwidth we use may be regulated or charged per usage, so it only makes sense to do it in web page format to reach the maximal audience.  Secondly, a written review could be read quicker, as well as if you were only interested in a certain aspect, you wouldn't have to sit through the whole video, you could just scroll to the appropriate section.  With a video, I either have to suffer through the whole thing, or just not watch it and then miss out on important points.  If I'm at work, I can't watch thirty minutes of video, but I can sure read a written review.

Could someone enlighten me?  To me, I feel as if you're doing a review "for the people", so to speak, then you should do it to "reach the people" as easily as possible.  To give an extreme example, if I want to educate people globally about proper hygiene, I'm not going to make a 4K video, because most of the people who need educating about hygiene wouldn't even have television.  Again, a bit extreme as an example, but just trying to drive home the point and see if anyone could explain to me why these types of reviews are unfortunately so common.

I understand your point but there are lots of people who would rather watch a review than read. Perhaps.

Ok... let's say my pocketbook started suggesting some chapter options... like the 300mm f4 is... a little over a grand... 420mm at

And I save nearly nine grand....
Thoughts m

The IQ of the 100-400L is a bit better than the 300/4 + 1.4x, and gives the convenience of a zoom and not having to muck about with a TC.   I'd recommend picking up a used 100-400 – that way, when you eventually give into temptation (you know you will, right??), you won't lose much when you sell the 100-400L because you're not using it anymore.

Perfect advice neuro. And this lens may be just perfect for OP for a long time….

No point over analyzing this. It is time and 7D2 (with exactly that name) and same sensor size will be announced. And I suspect it will be readily available as Canon will not repeat the 1DX and 200-400 availability delays. I hope I am not wrong in any of the baseless claims I am making… :)

i bet 800mm f5.6..... new 100-400mm will come in 2016.   ::)

Yes! The new 800…. Hoping.

I know the feeling, but unless you will be getting a commercial/financial return from the investment, it does not make sense.

I request you to reconsider. 'Make sense' is subjective. To me, spending a little money on doing creative things that makes one happy makes sense. Life is short, we should do what we can.
