5D3 - Recording Video on CF Card?

Speed is not an issue for me. I currently have my 5D3 mirroring everything on my CF and SD cards. I understand that I can't do that with video because of the speed requirements of video record. Still, I can find anything in the menus to let me select the default storage location for videos. It mostly records on the SD card, but occasionally it has recorded videos on the CF card. I can't make much sense of it.

I would like to set it to default on the CF card because my SD card reader is much slower. Does anyone know how to set the record location for video when I am mirroring the storage for stills?

Thanks, all!

I don't have the camera but would bet it is settable. I also seem to remember that the first card in becomes the default. So turn the camera off, move both cards, turn on, insert CF card, insert Sd card.

I thought something like that would work, but I forgot to turn the camera off while trying this. Let me try your method. Seems pretty silly that Canon doesn't have this option in the menus. I mean... they have 5-6 sub menus on just autofocus.

Thanks!

Isn't video recorded to the card selected for playback?

Stop the mirroring and have it record to the CF by default.

That only works if I can turn the mirroring back on. I am a "tinfoil hat guy" with backing up my images. I hate relying on one point of failure.
