Exteranl SxS Card Reader Availability

Looking to pick up a SxS card reader asap.

Anyone know of it's availability? Made a few phone calls and it doesn't look too promising. Abel just informed me that they haven't seen any since the cams first arrived and even then they only had a few.

Thanks!

Bump...

Just a quick bump to see if anyone's sourced a card reader.

I'm traveling to Austin to cover SXSW and am going to be needing to dump cards on the fly and I'm on a 12" powerbook. I've made the rounds of the big shops and there's no sign of these card readers.

I called a major shop down in LA today and they said they had only 4 in stock since the camera was released last year. Sounds like Sony might have grossly underestimated the need for these...or maybe I'm overestimating it!

Any help is appreciated as always.

Hey Raymond,

Can you PM me your local dealer's info. I might see if I can purchase one ahead of my trip and pick it up when I'm there.

In regards to Austin, I actually hired two great shooters off the DVInfo boards last year and it worked out great. I'll most likely post on the boards as soon as I solidify which gigs will require a second camera.

Thanks!
