Fasted CF cards for continues 5D III RAW
« on: July 28, 2016, 09:43:00 AM »
Hello Guys,

What are the fastest CF cards for the 5D III? As my komputerbay 1066x card can only record 1920x648(50fps) and even stops recording after 10 seconds. Could I do 1920x1080p continues with a faster cf card?

Thanks!

Write speed required in 1080p50:
1920 * 1080 *  14 * 50 / 8 = 181440000 = 173 MByte/s and that's beyond theoretical bandwidth using UDMA-7.
