5Dmk3 - Shooting VIDEO simultaneously to CF and SD?

I presumed this was possible, but I just read on a youtube comment that it was not. Is this correct?

Thanks,

Ben.

Not possible. Sucks, doesn't it?

The SD bus probably doesn't have the bandwidth to handle 5DIII video. If you've worked with ML Raw you know how slow the SD bus is. SD cards can be fast enough; hopefully Canon will come up with a faster bus for future cameras.

I record video all the time to the SD card in my 5D MK3. It works fine. You just can't record simultaneously to the CF card.

Cool. I've always used the CF card.

I like being able to just stick the card in my iMac. I need an adapter and USB with the CF card.
