Internet Protocol -- think web-cam
According to page 54 the 5D Mk 3 manual, you can use SDXC cards with higher-than 128 GB:QuoteCards with 128 GB or lower capacity will be formatted in FAT format.
Cards with a capacity higher than 128 GB will be formatted in exFAT
I didn't find any hard limits mentioned in the manual.
Kailhp, thanks for finding that for me. Good to know about the difference after 128GB.Hi Robert.
No idea about your question as I don't own anything canon that uses SDXC. Just a thought to perhaps temper the urge to go huge! Why not go for two smaller cards, probably cheaper and many less photos to loose due to corruption or plain damn where's that card gone!
I'm a wedding photographer and use dual cards with one card as backup. I like to leave the SD card in the camera for multiple weddings, just use the CF card as my main card. I use 16GB-32GB CF cards, and have been using a 32GB SD card, but have just been saving JPGs to the SD card. I'm thinking of going to RAW files to both cards, which means I'll need a bigger SD card, otherwise I'd need to swap out both cards between weddings. Since I'm writing to 2 cards, I'm not so concerned about card corruption, in fact that is the reason for writing the same files to both cards.
I'm the edge of 50% mirrorless and 50% DSLR. If I'm 100% commit to DSLR, there should be no hesitation for 2nd 1Dx. Speaking of 7D II, mine will arrive this Saturday. Can't wait to use it with 100-400 II
One obvious direction for the C500 mark ii would be to take it full frame.
This is also a point I'd make -- Canon has a huge full frame lens arsenal which will fit perfectly with full-sensor cameras. I bet Canon is in the midst of strategizing when it comes to their hi-end cameras.QuoteYa gotta love how everyone is talking 6k/8k as the next wave, when 4k has almost no support with the general public (or even in the theatrical distribution system short of a few select theaters).
Well, keep in mind that 8/6/4k is currently not for the consumer per se -- it's for the post production. E.g., shooting at 4/6/8k is like shooting with several focal-lenses at the same time since you'll then have more leverage to push in, pan across, stabilize and tweak it beyond any regular HD footage -- no matter if its final destination is only 1080p.
