CF cards are definitely much faster than SD. The CF BUS in the 5D3 allows for a much faster transfer rate than the SD BUS. It is a well documented quirk of the body.

Agree! CF card much faster and the buffer never seems to be reached on mine.

Thanks Maxdave and Nqjudo. I'll check that link out.

So, even though both cards are 1000x (128GB SD & 32GB CF) doesn't mean they perform the same because the camera's bus speed might be the limiting factor? Putting camera into high speed continuous and shooting until the buffer fills up would be a good test to see how quickly the days can be written to each card.

Since this won't be my action camera (birding, etc) it shouldn't hopefully matter that much. I have a 7D for that. One day to be a 7D2.


I'm in Canada. Isn't that weird!

A recent trip to Tibet proved 5d3 a great one for portraits

CF cards are definitely much faster than SD. The CF BUS in the 5D3 allows for a much faster transfer rate than the SD BUS. It is a well documented quirk of the body. You may still find using SD adequate. I guess it depends on how you shoot.

I'm sure I read it had something to do with the processor/electronics within the 5D3 not natively supporting dual card interfaces and thus it had to be "botched" a bit, whereas this was rectified on the 7D2.

The upshot is that the 5D3's SD card slot doesn't support UHS-1 and is actually limited to around 20MB/s - getting a card rated any faster than this is a waste of time, although would aid transfer speeds to a PC later in a suitable reader.

The SD speed is actually shockingly slow if shooting RAW. I use it for backup when shooting weddings, with RAW to both cards which does limit burst speed significantly but then that's not really important at a wedding.

Thanks, Renata. I worry that I just keep repeating the same old scenes over and over even though the weather, clouds etc. are always different. The sunset today was really orange but not as dramatic as a few nights ago.

Just in case anyone is wondering why my ISO and SS are so high, it's because it was a pretty dull day but mostly because the wind was blowing at somewhere between 40-60 mph and when the big gusts came IS was useless and it took me all my time to hold the camera up. However, the ptarmigan were going about their business as usual except that they did not fly away. I think they were grounded!

Beautiful, Annie. I love the way the telephoto compresses the scene.

This is an amazing photograph. I hope you have it printed and hanging prominently in your abode somewhere.

I am now part of the club. I just purchased a 5D3 with grip. Such a huge step up from the 5D2. And boy, are SD cards that much cheaper than CF memory cards.

I've set up the focus system already. Any other tricks I should know about? I've been trying to read up on the body to see what people are doing with it.

Cheers.


I found this fairly useful:

https://www.atrero.com …-5d-mark-iii-af-settings/ (external link)

- using the the "SET" button and "Main Dial" for on-the-fly ISO adjustment without having to search or look for ISO button on top of camera
- Joystick press for going back to Centre focus point
- Holding DOF Preview Button for momentary swapping between "One-shot" and "AI Servo"
- Displaying ONLY cross-type focus points.

rocks were super slippery due to foam all over the beach, fully stacked it after taking the shot. luckily camera and lens weren't damaged in the fall but filer holder and cpl died taking blunt of the force :(

Nice soft tones on the first shot. LOL at "fully stacked it", not laughing at what happened or the damage, just laughing at your Aussie description of it.
