I'm going to try the eye-fi card with the I pad and see how well it works together. I read some where you can do raw on the CP and jpeg on the SD card at the same time, which would be cool
yep or visa versa if you want the raws going over the eye-fi
i'm interested to hear how you go with the ipad link

I have about a dozen of these
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/330394641784?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649
they are reasonable price and have never had a problem with any

usually write raw to the CF and jpg to the SD


+1


Another +1 to these cards, I've got 2 of them, work awesome. Holds ~1000+ per card on my 5d2, depending on exact circumstances. Awesome!

Which compact flash card do I want for a 5D3?
« Reply #33 on: March 11, 2012, 03:32:15 PM »
With the 5D3 arriving in about two weeks I thought I'd order a compact flash card for it.  I'm new to them and not really sure what I need.

Sandisk Extreme 60MB per second? Is there a cheaper option?

Good question. I was looking at scan.co.uk where I got the 32GB card for my 7D when I bought the latter, and I found to my dismay that they don't even SELL 32GB CF cards any more!!! :-O

They WERE a lot cheaper than camera shops for the same cards.

16GB is no good to me for a 5D3.

So where in the UK is best/cheapest to get a good 32GB card without getting ripped off, anyone?

Amazon UK has them but I have no idea if their UK pricing is competitive.  Do we need "Sandisk Extreme Pro" 90 MB per second?

Ah, that doesn't look too bad. Thanks.

I'll probably go for the 90MB/s, then there should be no wondering "What if...?".

After about 15 minutes of google searching I found my answer.

Quote
The new 5D III also has high-speed continuous shooting, allowing you to catch up to six frames per second, while recording up to 16,270 continuous JPEG images to a UDMA mode 7 card in a single burst.

So now I know I want UDMA 7.  In the Sandisk line that means "Extreme Pro" not just "Extreme". 

On a related note, I wonder if having a slower SD card in there will slow down the camera if you're writing to both. I bet it will.

Just as an FYI I'm seeing that not all Sandisk Extreme Pro CF cards are UDMA 7. Some are UDMA 6.  The Lexar Professional 1000x cards all seem to be up to the spec.

Before jumping in and getting an over priced SANDISK, try one of the Kingston or Transend offerings off Amazon, they work great on my 7D are a bit slower than the LEXARS I use but could save you a fortune. If they do the job then its a steal, if not fast enough its a good cheap backup card.

Yeah Lexar have just announced those 1000x CF cards which are a faster speed than the SandDisk Extreme Pro. I think SanDisk will have to bring out some nice new high speed CF cards soon to stay competitive :) SanDisk Extreme Pro Happy Fast Speed maybe? ;) I bought a SanDisk Extreme 32GB (60mb/s) card when I thought I was going to buy a 5D2 haha! Bad idea, so I'll just use that until they release their new high speed cards :)

As for cheaper options, you always could, but CF cards are probably the cheapest thing you're going to buy for your camera, and definitely the most important since they actually hold your images, why skimp there?

Ive not skimped but never had a failure, my 5d is not that quick and works well with them. I use my LEXAR 200's and the they keep up in the 7D well, I had my fingers burned with SANDISK and not off ebay but Amazon, had real ones that failed and some fakes which I was amazed about in the past. So after a genuine failure of a real SANDISK I tried Kingston and never looked back with those. Video on the 7D works well on them.

I guess some of the major things to consider when choosing the appropriate card would be:


-Will you be taking a lot of burst shots? If so, speed would help clear the buffer faster

-Is the transfer speed from card to computer a big issue?

-Will you be doing a lot of HD Video in ALL-I compression?

-Being that a 128GB sized card would be really convenient, would it make more sense to have multiple 32GB cards? Just in case the 128GB card gets corrupted or lost/stolen.

Wow! How crazy! That's a shame about the real one failing! I'm just wary of cheaper memory options as in the past I've found it not worth the small saving in money for the headache in case something went wrong.
