Where did the 5D Cap out card wise?
Jul 22, 2012

I've been away from the forum for a few years. I still have my trusty 5D, though I've found myself wanting to upgrade from the 1GB cards I have to something newer/larger as 60-70 per card is annoying when you're hiking.

Obviously, things have changed since I bought my camera and the Extreme 1GBs. I don't need anything crazy, was looking in the 8GB range. Where did the 5D cap out performance wise on its read/write? I don't want to get some 1000x card that the 5D only writes at 400x to or whatever. There isn't a lot of detail for 'hey I ignored the technology and just took pictures for a few years'

Though I might just get a 5d Mk3 and call it quits. That being said, I don't like spending gobs of money. 5d is working for me.
