Quote from: soulshooter on August 20, 2013, 10:56:03 PMHey Ted,I'm shooting primarily on a 5D II (and waiting for the 7D ML to mature). I might be looking to upgrade to the 5D III soon so I can have 60p capability with raw.Would you suggest Komputerbay 64GB 1000x cards as the universal best choice? Right now I'm shooting raw with Sandisk 32GB 600x cards so I'm still compromising with ratios/resolution. And I work on Macs which don't have USB 3 so I'm still using a Sandisk Extreme CF reader with Firewire800.Just to be on the safe side, can you also suggest a compatible card reader so I don't blow my cards with incompatible firmware?
Quote from: soulshooter on August 20, 2013, 11:38:27 PMor wait a minute...is there any issue with connecting UDMA7 cards to firewire800 readers?

Quote from: gtsofilms on August 21, 2013, 05:15:28 AM1856x1004 (I'm shooting at 1:85) ah, so it's not the card that's the problem but the 5d2. I've tested all three cards with a usb3.0 reader and black magic's disk test and they all write at around 109MB/S. I guess I just want to make sure that those are the fastest speeds people are getting so I can decide whether or not to return them. I'll have to test the 1872 16:9 and see how long I can record continuouslythanks a lot!

Quote from: Davidos on August 27, 2013, 08:40:44 PMHi TedThanks for some seriously good ground work you've done with the KB cards. I'll be getting the 64GB x1000 cards for my 5D II. Seems like a good match. Just a quick question. I have the "Lexar Professional USB 3.0 Dual-Slot Reader (UDMA 7)". Is that one "safe" for the KB cards?Thanks
Quote from: ted ramasola on August 27, 2013, 10:38:57 PMDavidos, according to the technicians at KB, they tested several readers to see which ones are ok, the Lexar's apparently use a certain chip type that somehow is not compatible with the KB cards thus corrupting them. They recommend the kingston FCR-HS3. I got a cheaper SIIG brand USB 3.0 reader and its ok.
Quote from: Kraemer on August 29, 2013, 09:32:00 AMI'm on my 4th 64 GB 1000x card from KB. I am going to return it. Not worth the hassle! Shit-- ruined a shoot and my name!Yeah, it just did the same as the others-- crashed BEWARE!
Quote from: Karmaschinken on September 03, 2013, 01:44:26 PMHello guys! I got a 1000x 64GB KomputerBay Card and would like to try how it works on my 5D2, I´ll post my results here. But I wonder if there are already some conclusions about the various cards how to format the cards to achieve best speed results. Is there any table for that out, yet? Thanks! Martin
Quote from: Brett on September 06, 2013, 08:20:21 PMHi All,I am very new to all this but read with interest. I decided to resurrect my 5DMKII for underwater use now it seems possible to shoot in RAW.I ordered, without realising it wouldn't (according to the forum) work with the 5DMKII and asked to swap it for 2 x 64gb cards.I received the following reply today from KB:"This version of the 128GB is firmware bootable on the 5DM2. Please let us know what RAW resolutions you get once you get the card.Please let us know if we may further assist you."Can anyone confirm this is the case?
