Very Fast CF card, doesn’t seem to be faster than the 1000x but that’s ok, April 14, 2014

This review is from: Lexar Professional 1066x 32GB VPG-65 CompactFlash card (Up to 160MB/s Read) w/Free Image Rescue 5 Software LCF32GCRBNA1066 (Personal Computers)
So I got this card and it was immediately apparent that it was faster than my older 400x cards. I guess that is to be expected. Anyway, I started to wonder just how fast it was. I guess it’s pretty new, there were no official reviews on the internet of this card

I did find this thread on the Fred Miranda Forum. […]. Unfortunately there was no data available for this particular 1066x card. So, I decided I’d add my own. (I’m vw151 on FM) Here is what I found.

1DX
17-40L @ 24mm
F/5.6
1/4000th
ISO100
fresh battery
manual focus
12FPS
RAW

Lexar 32 GB UDMA 7 1066x ————156 shots in a 30 sec burst

I did the test 2x got 155 once, 156 once

Another metric I thought might be useful in this thread was total size of the files produced to account for the difference in file size made by different cameras. The 1Dx vs the 1D4 for instance.

Anyway in both cases, my combined total file size was about 3.19GB Do the math and that works out to about 106MB/second. File sizes are about 21MB per image. I think the frames recorded plus this data gives a clear picture of the card’s performance.

I have 2 cards. I’m gonna run the test 2 more times with the other card.

********************************************

OK

I did 4 more tests on the 2nd card but changed up the parrameters in the 2nd 2 tests.

155 shots 3.23GB RAW 12FPS Avg. 5.16 FPS 107.67MB/sec
148 shots 3.11GB RAW 12FPS Avg 4.9 FPS 103.67MB/sec

312 shots 1.57GB JPEG 12FPS Avg. 10.4 FPS 52.33MB/sec
324 shots 1.63GB JPEG 14FPS, Mirror Locked Avg. 10.8 FPS 54.33MB/sec

The interesting thing was, Jpeg @ 12FPS, It didn’t sound like I ever got off the buffer but Jpeg @ 14fps it got into the buffer hard at about 10 seconds in. but it still made more pictures in 30 seconds.

I also see file transfer rates from the card to an SSD or RAID0 at around 115MB/sec.

Please keep in mind these are real world benchmarks, not lab tests. None the less, if I reproduced the test on the FM forum reasonably well it seems the write speed in a 1DX is no better than the 1000x which the tester managed 160 shots in 30 seconds. Nothing wrong with that as the 1066x is just the successor to the 1000x and it seems we are reaching the maximum of the CF interface with these cards.

If you need the speed this is it., March 31, 2014
By

This review is from my perspective as a photographer.
So there are times when “it’s happening” (I shoot mostly concerts) and I cringe when the buffer on my camera fills and the shutter stalls and I see “that shot” being missed. If you have a camera that can take advantage of UDMA 7 (I shoot a Canon 5D Mark III and it can) and you need to make sure you get “that shot”, then spend the dough and get this card.
It writes to the card fast enough that you can shoot full speed continuously – forever.
Spending thousands on a better lens doesn’t mean a thing if the shutter doesn’t click when you need it to.

If you shoot in burst mode or high ISO, this card is worth it., July 14, 2014
By 
somedude74 (Elko, NV) –

Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
I purchased the 16GB version, I was previously using (mostly) a pair of 16GB Lexar Professional 400x (60MB/s) cards.

I did a test to see how much faster this card was than the 400x. Lexar states that the 400x is rated at a guaranteed 60MB/s rate, where the 1066x is rated up to 160MB/s.

I am using these cards in a Canon 5D Mk II. During my test, I used manual mode with the following settings:

1/125 sec
F/4 @ 24mm
daylight WB
AF off
IS off
continuous shooting mode
ISO, see results below

I was shooting in RAW with all in camera corrections turned off (which is how I normally shoot anyways). I used a 10 second burst timed by using a timer. This was not scientific, so allow for +/- 1 frame margin of error.

400x
27 Frames @ ISO 100
25 Frames @ ISO 800
24 Frames @ ISO 1600
21 Frames @ ISO 3200
20 Frames @ ISO 6400
The burst would slow at 14-12 frames, depending on the ISO.

1066x
34 Frames @ ISO 100 (21% faster)
32 Frames @ ISO 800 (22% faster)
31 Frames @ ISO 1600 (23% faster)
29 Frames @ ISO 3200 (28% faster)
26 Frames @ ISO 6400 (23%faster)
The burst slowed at 17-16 frames, it was very consistent no matter what the ISO was.

Now, a 21-28% faster card may not seem to be impressive, but in practice it is very noticeable. One thing I did notice was that the buffer was clearing out 4-5 times faster with the 1066x over the 400x and when the shots started to slow, the 1066x was very consistent and slowed from about 4 frames to 2 frames a sec, in contrast, the 400x would slow to 1-1.5 and would hesitate sometimes.

Also, here is another thing to keep in mind; I’m using a camera that was designed and sold in 2008 If you are using a newer model DSLR, your results will most likely be more impressive.

I also did a download test to see how much faster it would download. I used a USB 3.0 SanDisk ImageMate all-in-one on a computer using Windows 7 64 bit. I shot 30 images of the same scene onto each card. The 1066x had 604 MB of info and the 400x had 603 MB. The 1066x downloaded them in 6.01 seconds and the 400x did it in 7.60 seconds.

My download test showed the 1066x being 21% faster, which is pretty consistent with the in camera results.

*An interesting side note; when I was shooting the 30 frames for the download test, the 1066x rate of fire stayed consistent all the way through the 30 frames, the 400x slowed considerably at 25 frames and was maybe doing a frame a second until the 30th frame. *

If you don’t shoot action, weddings, wildlife, or some other fast changing or moving subject, this card will probably be over kill. If you do use the burst mode with any regularity, I would most definitely recommend getting one (if your camera supports this card).
