Magic Lantern has changed the world of Canon EOS 5D Mark III – the ability to record 14-bit RAW video. And that also push the limit of CompactFlash card. You need a very fast CF card in order to capture 1080p RAW video. So what is the best CF card for 5D3? Is 128GB Lexar Professional 1066x CompactFlash Card the one? It has the ability to deliver a read transfer speed up to 160MB/s with UDMA 7 technology. Supports Video Performance Guarantee specification for professional-quality video (VPG-65) which mean 65MB/s writing speed minimum. Does Lexar 1066x CF really that great? Let’s find out…
Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Lens was introduced back in June 1993. It is an old lens but many photographers still like it included me. It is sharp, light, and fast. It contains two high-refraction lens elements and one Gaussian optics. It becomes 80mm equivalent with attach to 1.6x crop SLR camera with APS-C sensor like Canon EOS 400D Digital or his brother Canon EOS 40D Digital. It is a wonderful portrait lens.
