Mac equivalent?

After some searching I'm finding no Mac equivalent. Anybody else looking?

Cool, thanks for the tip!

But the manuals for both state that PCI Express-type devices are not hot-plug/hot-swappable, only USB-type devices are. This means SxS cards (which are PCI Express-type cards) will only work if you insert the card BEFORE turning on the PC.snip......
I am currious to know how they make hotswapping possible on laptops with the built-in ExpressCard Adapters such as Macbook Pros, Sony VAIO, HP, etc....

Ahhh...just one more workaround and one more issue for these cameras. Yay. If I had any second thoughts about trying to get this camera, they definitely all just went out the window.

I'm thinking that the logic behind all this is that the camera's main use is shooting on location, thus a laptop with a slot will be the optimum solution to ingest.

While in a studio environment, capturing via SDI to a tower would be optimum.

I'm sure ( guess ) that by NAB we will see some expresscard adaptors that are SATA, FW800 or even possibly "N" wireless devices ( tha'd be nice ).

PCI-Express and ExpressCards support hot-swapping:

And the laptops support it.

The question is why did these adapters not inclulde this feature ? To reduce cost (which is why they're inexpensive) ?

Any update on this issue? As anyone found a PCE Express card reader that support hot swapping the cards?

Thanks.
