5D3 Feature Request: Copy images between cards

Hey,

 

I don't know if i've overseen something, but in recording settings, you can change, where images should be stored (1 card, both cards at the same time etc.).

 

But it doesn't seem to be possible to copy or move images between the two memory cards. That's not good, because when you forgot to set up recording settings beforehand, you will need a laptop and a card reader to fix your mistake. It's really annoying if you have a buggy card and you want to backup your files to another one. Murphy's law then occours: It happens, when you don't have a laptop with you Smiley Sad

 

So would it be possible to add a feature in a future firmware, that enables the camera to copy single/all files from one card to another?

If you need "backup" most of the time, why don't you let the camera write files in both cards at the same time?

Yes, actually you have overseen something. The 5D3 can copy image files between cards.  It's called Image Transfer (blue menu).

As mentioned above by Mike921 you CAN copy and move files between cards, the option is in the blue tab.
