With the 1DxII, can you use the CFast alone and then transfer the files to a Compact Card?

THE IDXII WITH CFAST CARD ONCE FILLED, CAN THE FILES BE TRANSFERRED TO THE COMPACT CARD INSIDE THE CAMERA?  THIS IS POSSIBLE WITH THE 5DIII.

 

ALSO IF USING BOTH THE CFAST AND THE COMPACT CARD TOGETHER FOR RECORDING RAW IMAGES, TO WHAT FMS WILL THE DRIVE DROP TO?

Hello Edward, 

 

There are two functions which you may be confusing together.  There is the option to copy/ transfer files within the camera from the Cfast to the CF card.  Then there is the option which is known as auto switch where when one card fills up it switches to the next card.  It does not work in the manner you suggest though, where the camera would stop, copy the files from the CFast and dump them to the CF.  

How many frames per second (and subsequent burst speed) it's 14 with the viewfinder.  Burst shooting for RAW with Cfast is approx. 170 shots, with CF it's approx. 73.
