5Dmk3 raw buffering with different CF card speeds?
Jun 19, 2012

The faster shutter on the 5D3 is great, but running out of buffer after 2 seconds is making me miss shots. I'm using an older 300x CF card, which is rated at about 45 MB/s.

Has anyone experimented with raw buffering and different CF card speeds? If I upgrade to, say, a 90 MB/s card, how many more raw shots at high speed before will I get before I run out of buffer?

Just trying to make sure it's worth it before I upgrade.
