currently using Sandisk Ultra (probably their slowest card now ) on my 5D1.
i find this combo to be very slow for writing speed (don't really care for reading speed).
and seeing these Extreme (not Extreme Pro) CF cards goes for $35 for 8GB at B&H, wondering if running one of these faster CF would benefit me at all? or is it limited by my buffer? which seems to be small?
I shoot Jpeg most of the time now becoz of this, shooting Raw is really lagging.
i assume the 5d2 and 5d3 has larger buffer, wondering what user with older Canon body like mine are using and want to hear their experience.
Yes, You should get better cards. I used Sandisk Extreme 16gb cards on my 5Dc and I Never hit the buffer much and when I did, It was cleared quickly.
