Anyone having issues using Sandisk extreme CF 120 MB/s??

This is the gold coloured CF card with 85 MB/S write speeds for 4k video?

I typically use Sandisk Extreme pro but since my dual card backup Extreme Pro SD card is only 90MB write speeds. I'm just curious if it's worth spending more money for the Extreme Pro CF card.

Gotta admit I do enjoy the 5d4. Extremely painful for Canadians to buy this body in $$$$$ CDN funds!!!

I REALLY liked the 5d4. I have to send it back to CPS tomorrow :( I didn't like the 5D3 and I only had it for 4 months before selling it. I can't wait for the 5d4 to get down to $2300-2500 on the used market. Then I'll pick one up. I can make do with what we currently own for the time period.

Is $2799 too expensive for your budget?

...+ tax puts it over $3k and right now, off wedding season, yes it's too expensive for my budget.

The DoF is so deep here that the background looks like a poster and/or the couple looks like they were photoshopped in.

Totally agree with this, the sun is coming from the far right of the pic, yet your light is coming from nearly dead on the subject. I think a more natural approach would have been to have your softbox or octabox whatever far left of your subject, match the sun then have 2 kickers. One camera straight for some fill. Left of camera to soften the shadows. IMO would work a lot better.

2 things. First, I had 7 minutes to get a few shots with the dog. I shot in TTL because of speed and that was with only 1 light. I sure wasn't going to set up 2 kickers. Dragging multiple stands, lights, sandbags around the property(by myself) wasn't happening as we were finishing up formals after the 1st look and needed to get to shooting the bridal party before guests arrived. Second, putting the strobe camera left would not have made it match the sun as the sun was coming across, from camera right. You can see I had the light camera right (shadow under her nose) but it was close to my right because of rocky/unflat ground along with the fact that the dog is dark and I knew if it was too far camera right he'd be WAY underexposed related to the couple. Again, didn't have the time to setup another light stand.

I appreciate your comment though.

I think you may have misunderstood me, i said put your main light to the subjects left, not camera left. I think even with one extra light it would have looked a lot more natural.

I don't know why you would speak from the subjects point of view. Keeping with continuity of the shooter makes more sense being as I'd be the one setting up the lights. I always view the image from the viewer's pov(everyone does lol) so speaking about where to place a light makes more sense to me as camera right/left. And my light was camera right.

I appreciate your opinion, but it's completely irrelevant to this particular scenario as the main focus was to expose for them in heavy shade with limited time.
