Looks like SanDisk announced a new card.  If the specs hold up we should be able to record close to 4K (3840x2160) at 24fps.  Thoughts?


Will the card magically update the hardware in the camera to take advantage of the new speed?
5D Mark III -- 7D   SOLD -- EOS M 22mm 18-55mm STM -- Fuji X-T1 18-55 F2.8-F4 & 35 F1.4
Canon Glass   100L F2.8 IS -- 70-200L F4 -- 135L F2 -- 85 F1.8 -- 17-40L --  40 F2.8 -- 35 F2 IS  Sigma Glass  120-300 F2.8 OS -- 50 F1.4 -- 85 F1.4  Tamron Glass   24-70 2.8 VC   600EX-RT X3


Exactly, even the current crop of 1200X or 1050X cards aren't reaching their top speeds on the 5D3.

Turns out it's not the card...who knew?


It doesn't matter, no shipping camera supports CFast.

Even though it shares the same form factor as regular CompactFlash, they are not compatible.
