The data port on the underside of the 7d...
« on: May 13, 2016, 01:01:18 PM »
Hi new to the boards...
The 7D has a max CF speed of 80MBps from what i read, so that really limits how much you can shoot raw 2k on... even with a fast CF card that maxes out the bus speed...

Im not a deep level hardware expert, but what is the port on the underside of the camera?

I know its for extension kits like geo tagging and wifi data linking... But does it has a faster bus for data storage?

Could some one in ML dev team do a crowd fund to design and build a this port to sata/ssd interface? Maybe something built into a grip extension?

Can this port save data faster than 80MBps or is it also limited by the CF data bus speed?

Just my two pennies worth...

It would be great to be able to shoot 2k for longer than a few seconds...

Oh and this might be a silly question... Why not 2k compressed to h264? It is a limit of the hardware compression chip?
