Re: SD or CF for 5D Mark III For Video
In reply to CameraCarl, Feb 11, 2013

The problem is very clear I believe. The maximum speed needed for full HD video transfer is 20mb/s. A SD card that suports this speed is very cheap: 125 $ for a 45mb/s San Disk Extreme 128Gb. The CF version with the same capacity is 650$. So it makes sens for people shooting only video to use the SD slot. For photo also I find it usefull for events where I don't shoot in burst and need a back-up. Of course if you shoot sports professionaly and need the speed burst and the back-up, Canon expects you buy the 1Dx
