when i first moved to a 7d and then 5d3, i opted for a couple of 16gb CF cards...

my "large" jobs mosty consist of high school football, my daughter's marching band, and high school and semi-pro hockey...

my regular jobs consist of a lot less images being created. that said, i have ONLY ONCE, filled a cf card to capacity. it was a local art fair/music festival where i was shooting pretty much non-stop from 10am until midnight...

does video eat up a considerably larger portion of memory, than stills? i could get away with a couple of 4gb (although they would be really close to fill) cards vs the 16s so i wonder what kind of need there is for a 64gb or 128gb memory card? i could see if they were being run in a 50-60mp camera, maybe but most cameras arent close to that much resolution...

There are too many variables such as frame rate, compression, image size, etc. I suggest you check the manual and apply your specific shooting techniques. See http://gdlp01.c-wss.com …8/06/eos5d-mk3-im8-en.pdf (external link) for the 5DIII manual which is searchable but look around page 230 more or less. Shot below is page 234.

FYI - as I have both canon & nikon rigs, I recently added a nikon D850 with a 45MP sensor and 100MB files (JPG + RAW).

It arrived with dual 256GB cards. that's > 1/2 TB.
