So I'm In this meeting today about xf305...

So I'm In this meeting today about xf305 and this person chips up with you can't shoot continuously from one card to another with the 305. I say oh yes you can that's the whole point of the two flash cards & they say no you can't they tried it and they lost 3 seconds of footage. Anybody else have any experience about this or Know what they are talking about.
Love to hear your thoughts.
Mark

It splits the video beautifully and gracefully continues on the next card. No problem.

Re: So I'm In this meeting today about xf305...

Hi Mark,

I haven't done any long events with the XF, but in one interview I conducted, the interview began in one CF card and ended in another (meaning I filled up the first CF card, then the cam started recording the second as Bill mentioned). In the Canon XF Utility, I believe it showed up as two different clips. I was a bit worried at first.

But in Adobe PPro CS5, I looked for both clips, imported them, and appeared seamless on the timeline.

Hhmm. I wonder if it was a type of CF card model that person used? Maybe the card reader? Or...?

User error when ingesting e.g. not using the XF Utility.

Seamless. FCP and in one case tried it without the XF Utility. 2 Separate clips that became one on timeline.

Sandisk Extreme Pro.
