Hi all

I shoot dancers and am considering a move from Sony to the Z9 for a few reasons.

......

On a separate issue, I am still trying to weigh up the Z8 vs Z9 - I think I have to go Z9, just for the dual CFE-B card slots. I would probably prefer the lighter Z8, but need redundancy. I'd be happy to write raw to the cfe card and emergency jpegs to the SD card on a Z8, but I am guessing even writing smaller files to the slower card will be slower buffer clearance than writing raw to both cfe slots on the Z9? I have never been able to find empirical data that compares that specific setup?

Thanks for any advice.

See this write-up on the Z8 by RC Jenkins. About half-way down is the answer...

It is a great review of the Z8 overall...
