Canon 5D Mark II: CF or SD/SDHC + adapter?
I just made my foray into the world of Canon, having bought a second hand Canon 5d Mark II a couple of days ago. We (husband and I) have a Fuji X-E1 (and an X-T1 on the way) and thus we have a vast collection of SDHC cards. We're also avid Apple consumers. Both owning a MacBook Pro w/Retina each.
My question is: Do you use CF cards or SDHC cards with a CF to SD adapter with your Canon and why?
The SDHC cards seems easier: less space, SD reader within the macs, can just carry one lot of SDHC cards between us, wouldn't need a card reader, less likely to be corrupted on the go (card reader can be knocked from USB port), etc.
I understand (in principle) the benefit of Compact Flash over Secure Digital in regards to speed, however, I really would like to know what people do from a practical standpoint.
Are there huge limitations to the adapters?
Is the "lag" really that noticeable, and if it is, is it "unworkable" (meaning: is it often impossible wait a few extra seconds to preview your work)?
