5D Mark III, save video on SD??
« on: May 21, 2012, 09:43:57 AM »
My workflow (when traveling) is that the 5D Mark III saves to both cards, and after that I use the SD slot on my MacBook Pro for importing to lightroom. I then use the camera to format the cards.
For some reason the videos are only saved the CF card.

Because of that, unfortunately I deleted a wonderful video from the metro in Paris, of people playing music.

Is there any way to make the camera save videos to SD as well?

Yes you can save to the CF, but you have to have a card that's fast enough and change some settings.  You can look in the manual for how to do so, too many people are making threads with a single question that is easily answered by the manual.  Check page 116 and the following few pages

I want to save to SD, as I wrote.

It seems that you even though "Rec. to multiple" is selected, the "Playback" determines witch card the video is stored on.

Since I changed the "Playback" to the SD card, it now only stores the video to the SD.

donjensen - the problem I have is Lightroom, on a PC, doesn't download the MK III videos. LR 4 downloads and imports raw and jpg stills but not the video files. I have to use Zoombrowser or Windows Explorer to download the videos from the card.

Since I changed the "Rec", I can now see the files in LR4, on my SD card.
