NEW KomputerBay *1050x* 128 GB Card
« on: July 03, 2013, 08:54:22 AM »
I've been talkiing with the guys at KomputerBay and we decided to do a test with their newest 1050x 128Gb card.
All I can say is wow--  It ate up over 35000 frames without skipping one frame!  35000 frames at 24 fps is 00:24:18:08 

I'll admit the camera did get a bit warm, the card was on the verge of hot, but as soon as it came out from the camera it cooled off in about 20 seconds.  The Quality is really noticeable in this test.  I rolled on about 6 different shots and compared the All-I compression with the RAW--I also shot some using the 3x Crop mode.

I shot this at 1920 x 1080.   Using a mac and raw magic software, I batched these shots and flipped them all into after effects.  Very little was done there.  Rendered Apple Pro Res 1920x1080, then downconverted that to 1280x720 for vimeo.  The original Pro-Res 1920 x 1080 the differences are more striking.  I wasn't able to record beyond 1920 x 1080 in size however.  It took about an hour to flip the raw file to a series of .dngs.

See it here: 

The differences on between the original canon All-I compression and the ML RAW are amazing.  Huge files, but the KomputerBay 1050x Card did a superior job rolling along.  Here's the benchmark tests from that new 1050x card (compared with the 64 Gb 1000x ):





For some reason the speeds at the beginning of the test were slower..not sure why..but
--It was nice being able to roll continuously with no problems for over 30,000 frames, thats 24 minutes!

Since it only does 1080 at 24fps, probably bits slower than the 64GB version.
How about 48p, whats the max resolution? Compared to the 64GB.

What about warm up? Does it need to warm up?

Great NEW KomputerBay *1050x* 128 GB Card

These cards in my tests so far are fabulous no dropped frames at 1920x1080 for 10 minutes of continuous shooting, June 27th build, 5D Mark 3 Global draw turned off.   So thus far it's been no dropped frames with Transcend 64 GB 1000x and now with KomputerBay 128 1050x,

I will buy one of these for sure.  Don't get fooled by the expensive cards.  Those manufacturers should be sued for their bogus speed claims just to take our money.

I guess these 1050x cards will eliminate any problems with any inconsistencies with shooting continuous 1080p RAW, like the 1000x cards have.

Still no 25fps 1920x1080 tryout? Come onHow hard can it be??
Would the 1000x specs been right from the start like most 64gb cards we wouldn,t be needing any 1050x cards to begin with, don,t you think?

Sounds like a volunteer to buy one and test since it's so easy!

Well, I don,t know what you actually mean by that but if people already have a card and manage to record 24fps on their 5d mark 3, it,s actually not that hard to set the camera to 25fps and do a little testing. A little help

What I mean is that you seem to be yelling at someone else for not having time to test it.  If you're that upset/anxious, you should buy one and test it.

I must say how hard is it to go into a menu and flip a wheel one increment? No pressure though. If he doesn't have time, I understand, our lives don't revolve around the ML Forums.

This is a good question. If the 1050x card (or any 1000x card, for that matter) is capable of recording 2+ minute clips at this resolution, the potential for organic looking 4k output is more likely. I've messed around with uprezzing a few 5D3 raw 1080p stills to 4k in AE and have been mildly pleased with the results on my friend's 65" Sony display.

The price already went up $20 on amazon.  Went up $50 on ebay.

I knew I should've bought one last week.
