  1. Interesting. Didn't know that. I know that the limitation still exists for Apple's ARM chips, but that shouldn't be here nor there. Apple is dropping all native support for VP9 with the current OS update, as it relied the now deprecated 32-bit functionality of QuickTime and is not supported by Apple's current AVFoundation (anything that uses FFMpeg or other codec library, like VLC, will still function). I'm sure there are a lot of details that I'm not privy to as far as licensing and royalties (or lack thereof), but I guess the reasoning now likely lies with that.
  2. My understanding is similar to what @Video Hummus mentioned above. One probable reason Apple doesn't support VP9 is that VP9 can't be accelerated in hardware like H.264 or H.265 can with Intel 6th gen and later processors as well as most modern GPUs. That leaves only the option for software decoding. Software decoding of high-resolution VP9 video is pretty resource-intensive and would drain batteries quickly, especially on mobile devices and lightweight laptops. Also, while VP9 is royalty-free, it's developed solely by Google, as opposed to the upcoming AV1 which is being developed as part of a consortium for broader support.
  3. Angelbird has their "wrk" SSD drives that somehow support the OSX trim. See this article below for more. http://www.macrumors.com/2014/10/31/angelbird-ssd-trim/ Angelbird SSD drives are available here. http://bhpho.to/11jAtXU
  4. I'm sure new higher speed stuff will come down the pipeline from Lexar, Sandisk, etc... that will help with the 5d3 raw video.  Too many people are using CF for the companies to just kill it, but it's limitations are becoming more obvious.  Also with the new design, no more bent pins!!!
  5. These cards aren't backwards compatible with CF cards or cameras that use them.  These are part of a standard that was announced back in 2008 as a successor to CF.  They use the faster SATA architecture as opposed to the PATA architecture of CF and have SATA connectors.   The 256 GB ExtremePro card that was just announced is the conventional CF type not CFast so those read/write times are not reflective of the new CFast cards.   So unfortunately, while it is good to dream that you will get great raw video framerates with such cards.  The hardware is not compatible with the 5d3.
