Best CF Cards
on Feb 12, 2011 at 6:48:37 pm


I'm looking to buy some more CF cards for my 5D. What difference does the speed make? I'm currently using SanDisk ExtremePro 90Mb/s cards but I feel like that may be overkill.

I have heard that distortion in motion (such as quick pans) is increased with slower cards. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Thank you,

Hardly overkill , We use SanDisk 8GB 60mb/s * 400x , even the Extreme IV UDMA 45MB/s 300x are good, and we use 10 of these. Do not try the ULTRA II it is too slow. The jellow on panning horizontally is caused by too fast a pan and maybe a bad video card in a slow computer. It no longer occurrs using Canon IS Lens preferably the Canon EF 70-200mm which according to Canon Australia has a better anti-stabilizer to handle faster horizontal movement although the EF 28-135mm F3.5 is also an excellent choice, we use it hand held nearly all the time , the Canon f2.8 25-70mm L Series and NO IS is too heavy.
