I understand that we cannot utilize the highest speed of 5d3 if we setup the camera to write files into both cards at the same time due to the limitation of the in-camera SD card speed. So my question is if it is possible to take photos and save as RAW into the CF card first and then do a Jpeg conversion through the camera later to save the Jpeg files into the SD card? I know how to do a single file conversion but would it be possible to select a batch of RAW files and do a batch conversion through the camera? This workflow is very useful that we can do batch processing without a PC especially during travelling. I have to admit that I did not read the manual completely. Any help on this would be appreciated, thanks!
Yes, and that is the only way that I have used the SD card so far (intentionally at least). I shot dozens of pics in RAW to the CF and then batch converted them to jpgs onto to SD card. I was then able to move the SD to an iPad and display the photos from there. I hate how the iPad is unable to display RAW 5D III files (works with 5D II).
Hello Random Orbits, can you show me how to do batch convert in 5D3 or point me to any on-line references? I had just tried again with my camera but still have no clue on how to do it. Thanks!
Actually, I can't because my memory is faulty. You can batch copy but not batch convert. Sorry. I must have converted them one by one...
