Re: Using 5d mark 3 to film soccer game

300x CF is slow (=45MB/sec; mine are just 30MB/s, but then I use an old 5D2). While good enough for video, you want faster than that for pictures (for faster performance once the buffer is exhausted).

fyi, I just placed a call to Canon, they say video is more demanding than digital pictures and said..
if a cf card, needs 300 mininimum
if sd card, needs class 6 or higher.

This may well coincide with with what you suggest, but thought I'd post Canon's take.
