CF or SD for 5D3?
Apr 1, 2012

Since receiving my lovely 5D3 last week I have discovered that my old 4GB CF is way too slow and will not worth at all with HD video in All-I setting.

I need to get a new, faster one, but I am wondering whether to go for SD or CF. I am not aware of any material differences apart from the package, am I missing something?

Interestingly the manual shows different minimum card write speeds for CF and SD (20 vs. 30M/sec IIRC).

What is the experience of the others on here?
