I did just buy a 64gb SD card to use for 4k video - which I will only do rarely.
People blasting Canon for not putting in CFast but to me there's no need and they saved me a bunch of money. I suspect over 80% of the market is in the same boat - so Canon chose to go with the market.
Cfast would of sucked. The fact the UHS-1 Sandisk Extreme Pro cards work on 4K means I just bought a 256GB card for $123! Thats cheaper than I paid for my 64GB 1066x card just two years ago. CF and SD cards are cheap. The sandisk cards are inexpensive and WORK on 4K. This series: https://www.amazon.com …PA-256G-G46/dp/B00NP63XGE
Thank you canon for releasing a new camera so I do NOT have to spend 500 on new cfast cards: https://www.bhphotovideo.com …ast_2_0_cfx650_flash.html
$500+ for a 256gb Cfast or $123 SD??? cmon' people what are you really griping about????
I also don't understand why cfast is so desirable. What is the cf card not doing for folks?
They want unlimited buffer and they "could" have but since when has Canon ever done that?... oh the 1DxII and it's a new feature and they want it in that camera and probably in 4 years that will be done and we will have unlimited buffers for all cameras from that point on. I surely am not missing anything.
