[magiclantern] CF Cards read write speeds

time for a short test with the komputerbay 64gb 1000x CF card. if you dont wanna read more, i can say, 32gb and 64gb versions have nearly the same specs on a 5DIII. its not only useful for the raw-movie mode, but for photography as well – it expands your ability to shot about 29 cr2-raws on full speed, but it does not stop after writing/filling the cache, its only slower, 2-3fps with hickups i assume.

its the slowest of my 1000x CF cards. it cant deliver pleasant datarates for movie or picturemode. saying this, because the komputerbay-cards are hell of a bargain. so, tested with ATTO, on an internal usb3-cardreader its quite fine, read datarates ~127MB/s are really fine. but thats all, sorry. i conceive, the 32gb-versions could be significantly faster. dont have them.. the 16gb version costs about 45 Eur.

Komputerbay 32GB 1000x CF

here are the stars, shining thru the dark clouds. fast cf cards dont have to be expensive. havin such a card is helpful for the just-photographer and clearly for the magiclantern-user, exploring and filming in the worlds of mlv/raw. it just costs ~47 Eur for the 32gb card. here are the benchmarks. ATTO on the computer and movie-benchmark inside the body.

Komputerbay 64GB 1000x CF

nothing to say, sir. its nearly the same power, double the storagesize for about 82 Eur. the doublepack, 2 cards 64gb 1000x komputerbay, costs ~140 Eur. tested as well with ATTO and inside the body. creamy 90MB/s for fullHD at 24fps.
