How long for 1 RAW processed in DPP? Can you try this please?
Jan 25, 2009

This is a question for 50D users using Sandisk Extreme III or IV cards. I'm very interested in knowing how long it takes YOU to process (download) each RAW image from the cf card to the hard disc.

Currently, if I process RAW files without any adjustments in DPP and I download them at maximum Jpeg quality, 12, using a Lexar UDMA capable (for the Exteme IV, old style) Firewire 800 card reader, each RAW file takes about 13 seconds with either card. This is better than the 18 seconds it takes with a Sandisk USB2 12 in 1 card reader (model SDDR-89 V4), but it still seems a little slow. Sometimes I have 800-900 shots to process and it takes 3-4 hours.

I would be very grateful if you could all try the method above for 5 or 10 RAW files and let me know what size and type of Sandisk card, what reader, and how long each image takes.

I would also be very interested if anyone uses other cards (at least 8GB) which are faster.

Many thanks in advance.
