    Default Some newbie questions.

    Hi folks,

    I hope you don't mind. I have some questions.

    I'm getting into video. I have a Canon 5dmk3 that I use for photography. What do you think would be an ideal card for this. Also, how much memory does it eat through.

    Is there any issues with the camera overheating?

    Thanks

    It will overheat if you film continuously for a few hours. In all my years I've only had a DSLR overheat once and the new it just gave a warning. I suggest you buy class 10 64GB SD cards.

    Is there any benefit to using cf cards? They're pretty expensive though.

    Also, I have a 2010 Macook pro with 4gb ram and a ssd drive. I'm guessing it won't be good enough? I also have a PC with 8gb ram, an i5 3.3ghz processor, would that be a better option or could it be new PC time?

    Thanks for your help

    Just use SD cards. The 5D Mk 3 only does HD so any class 10 SD is fine. I got a mate shooting video with the 5D Mk 3 and he uses Sandisk Ultra 128GB the're quite cheap for the size because the read/write speed is not the fastest around anymore and you'll sooner run out of batteries than storage with 128GB
    Overheating? Nah unless you're filming constantly (as in hours on end) like Marc mentioned. Also keep in mind you have a 30 minute video recording limit... that's generally not an issue though.

    No CF cards! No benefit at all with the 5D Mk 3.
    Your macbook might struggle a bit. I'd use a desktop work station. I personally prefer to build them myself which saves me a lot of money over buying a mac for example. If you do like the apple OS you can actually load it on a custom build PC as well, you just need the know how
