  3. Re: UDMA Cards - which Canon camera models will benefit?

    So far, I haven't been able to get over 28 shots in a row before it slows to a crawl. I'm just trying to figure out what card Canon was using when they rated this at 40 shots at 8.5 shots per second....

    Re: Canon EOS 5D Mark II Review Discussion

    Thanks for the feedback. I got to try a 5DII this afternoon with the 70-200L IS USM and had three of the neighborhood kids run straight toward me from about 50 yards away a few times.
