I have alot of 8GB cards that i normally use in my 5D Mark II. I was wondering how many shots (sRaw) do you get when using 5D Mark III at ISO100 on 8GB cards and 16GB cards.

If you put the cards in the camera it should tell you how many shots you have left to take to fill the card, and the number increases when the file size is lowered

unfortunately I don't have a 5D Mark III to know this answer, that is why I am asking.

Depends on what kind of RAW file. I'd say 200-225, something like that on the highest setting

I don't see how it could be much different than the Mark II.

awesome. i just dont want to be running out and spending more money on buying more 16/32 cards, at least not right away. spending $3500 is enough for now.

You can get SD cards to compliment your 8GB CF cards from your 5DM2. :) SD cards are mega cheap, 32GB (not the fastest cards but good enough for video recording) for around $25.

producing cleaner / less noisier files, I would not be surprised if you're able to store MORE with 5D3...

If your spending $3500 for the camera, tossing in a 16GB or 32GB card should be painless.

FWIW I used 16GB with my 7D and 5D2, never shot anything except full resolution RAW images.

hmmm, not a bad idea using the SD cards for video recording only.

maybe one or two 16GB or 32GB is fine. but another dozen or half dozen - nah!

Not every image needs to be captured in full RAW

I use 8GB CF cards just aboute exclusively. If a card goes bad, I don't want to lose the whole batch of photos. It's rare, but why risk it? It would happen the one time I really didn't need it to happen, so I just remove the possibility.

I don't know about a 5D3 but my 1DS3 (21mp) when set at ISO 100 shows 300 raw and 530 sraw on an 8 gig card.
