7D card not using full power?
« on: February 19, 2017, 07:00:30 AM »
i have a lexar 64gb 1066* 160mb per sec card.
i use it for raw recording.but some how when i check bench mark or shoot the raw video,it dosnt do its full power.
the bench mark said that is writing 90mbs and read 60mbs.
is it because the camera cant give it fast?or the card has problem?

please help me.
thank you.

About 90 MByte/s in write mode is 7D limit. Real life numbers for recording are lower because of overhead.

Max write speed is about 78-82 Mbyte/s while recording.
