I'm not really sure what you mean by that - would it make your subject line any less dumb? :-) Maybe you're just thinking that you could make up for a lack of forum etiquette by sitting on me and squashing me? I can't imagine!

I'm guessing that you thought that since the content of your post contained a question, that it would be a perfectly appropriate, and poetically finger-saving idea, to put the subject as ???

I'd also guessed that with > 90 posts, you might have already realised what might happen if everyone on this forum was equally clever and lazy and put ??? as their subject line, but I guess no.

So anyway, I thought I'd point it out with a feebly almost-humorous comment, in the hope that others won't follow your inspirational lead, and maybe, just maybe you'll think twice next time you start a post here containing a question. :-)

Still, It's not every time someone propositions me on a forum after one post, asking to meet up with me - I'm very flattered, but I have to point out - you know I'm a straight guy, right? :-)

Buba...

What Chris is trying to say is you're more likely to attract the right people to your post if your subject line reflects the information you're trying to provide or the question you're trying to ask.

A string of question marks could be anything. And perhaps the person who might have been able to provide you a useful answer simply blew past it without giving it a second glance.

The forum is about sharing information, and it all starts with a clear and concise subject line.

That Tiget Direct price is interesting ($390), as the transcend USA web site lists it at $203.

I believe the write speed is 64Mbs (Megabits/sec), the 8 is 8MBs (MegaBYTES/sec). Nearly 2x the data rate of the EX, but I also suspect it won't work, but for reasons other than absolute speed.

Looks like USB type rather than PCIe type. EX1 needs PCIe type.

Nothing outside of Sony and Sandisk will work until EX1 firmware update. I believe at that point Sony will certify additional 3rd party cards. Sony has said this but I haven't heard a date for that firmware update.

Actually the Transcend data sheet says it supports PCIe and USB. Cannot tell by the 'look' of the card.

But unfortunately, Sony is excluding all except it's own cards, and presumably Sandisk.

Firmware in the camera. Obviously something in Sony (and Sandisk) SxS card is detected by the camera.
