Re: R5 Buffer Clearing

When I first got the camera I checked the buffer and it was able to clear the buffer from the CFexpress card in under 10 seconds (with the Sony Tough 128GB). Now with both of my cards (Sony Tough 128GB and Lexar 128GB), it takes the same time as the UHS-II cards, which is roughly 20 seconds. I can see why Canon might have throttled it down, but I'm curious if others are seeing the same performance drop.

Personally, I'm not sure if it just my camera or if one of the recent firmware updates have altered it.

Have you set up your R5 to write the same image to both card simultaneously? If so that is probably it because with will write the both at the same time a the speed of the slowest card. Also what is the guaranteed write speed of the UHS-II cared ( it is UHS-II I hope and a fast one) Can you provide more specific information on your UHS card?
