This is a re-visit for me to shoot wasp's again, although this time it was using Magic Lantern software to shoot in 14bit raw. I used Canon's EOS Utility software to control the camera from inside my house so that I wouldn't get stung. I had limited success with this software. At time's it would lock up and I would need to restart the application. It was also sometimes hard to know if we were still recording or not as you needed to listen to the beep from the camera. The Lexar Card was great. I was able to record for several minutes at a time without any drop frame issues that I could notice. I didn't test the record times beyond what I needed. It took a long time to get the Magic Lantern software to install correctly in the beginning. It was hard to find one instruction video or list that covered everything that was required to know how to install it on to my camera and having it sit on the SD card and not on the CF card.
