Reminder post.

Want video > 4GB on your cards? Dump FAT32.. If you have CF >= 256GB the camera will format exFAT filesystem, but you don't need a card that size to use exFAT. Place CF card in your PC reader and format it direct to exFAT and your done. The camera will create the folders when it see's them missing.

Only thing you have to remember is not to format in camera.

now start shooting your video... :D :)

Update.

I’ve had the 5d4 since Sept 2016. I have no regrets at all. In fact I purchased another one as my second camera as I have drifted into professional photography as a wedding shooter. I am surprised how much I like it and how much my clients love my work.

I tried a Nikon along the way (D800e) and I just did not like the way the photos looked out of camera. They some out with a green cast and skin is magenta looking in comparison. The camera was fine worked great and sharp as hell. I think I am a canon guy, everything just seems a little easier on the canon.

I have zero desire to go to Sony. For me IQ is the main thing. I do not mean measurable specs like DR and that sort of thing I refer to simply how they look and the quality of the files. I personally think even just the raws look great. PPing bulk files is a pleasure.

I am looking forward to Canons alleged foray into Mirrorless pro gear. The one thing I really want is to be able to see exposure in the viewfinder. I am obcessed with manipulating light and that would be a big help. I think it would help me work faster. Silent shooting and IBIS would be cool as well.

Do you guys use a 64gb CF card or a 128gb?
What's a decent CF card to use?

I'm ordering my 5D 4 tomorrow....

Personally I use 32 and 64GB CF cards. I do have a few 128GB SD cards, since with SD the price per MB remains more consistent. With CF it seems to go up with the bigger cards (at least last time I checked)

I use both sizes, but need that capacity as I shoot a good number of time lapses. The Lexar Professional 1066x series cards are one of the fastest out there, good for keeping the buffer low, and never had problems with them. Recently on sale at B&H and Amazon, don't know if they still are.

I have some Lexar 1066x CF cards from before they got sold to the Chinese. I don't know what that's done to the quality. I only have one 128 GB card that gets used when I know I'm going to be machine gunning it. Otherwise, I use 32 GB cards.

I also use Lexar 1066x. I've purchased before and after the Chinese takeover, and I don't see any difference. I use 32GB and 64GB. I don't do video.


Image editing ok; C&C always welcome.

Thanks all, I'm probably not going to shoot proper videos with it but I sure will play with it once in a while....
How many shots can I take with a 32gb card?

This is 3 years old so I don't know what has changed. I remember people said UDMA 7 and Max Read Speed (#3) where important. Scroll down to see the explanations.

Canon say:
Large JPEG 3280
RAW 680

But that's just a guide. There are variables.

If you use HTP, the RAW capacity will go up a bit.

Sadly, high-ISO RAWs could be much, much smaller than they are without visible IQ loss. This can be done by reducing precision, or by using lower gain, which has *very* little noise compromise at high ISOs, and increases highlight capacity. Manufacturer's silly standards are a pain.

I've seen that enabling Dual Pixel RAW raises file size pretty substantially (it essentially has two images, so is double).

Thanks all. I might get a 32gb for the time being then... Just received my 5D today... need to get familiarized with the menus first! Never seen so many options!
