So I was right with my theory ;) Good stuff

What about trying an ExpressCard SD reader and use the new fast SDHC cards?

They're cheap And writes 30 MB/s... (sandisk)

Lexar 16Gb SSDs are available for $80-$100.

Far cry from $800 for Sony/Sandisk SxS 16Gb.

But will Lexars work reliably and in all modes, like S&Q etc.?

So let me get this clear. You are saying put a 32Gb SDHC card into the ExpressCard sd reader and then push the ExpressCard SD reader into the SXS slot on the EX1 ( leaving the door open)

Is that right?

That's the theory. Are you sure you have to leave the door open?

I think some readers allow push in push out like the readers on many laptops..

You would have to leave the door open. I thought it would fit inside the adapter.

HI Brian, is that Sony one any better than this, or just a branded adaptor, because the price difference is large.

That image probably shows the chip half way in. Would be no point to show a picture of it inside. Then you wouldn't see it.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

This could work with an ExpressCard CF reader too... With a 233x or faster CF...

There is now to topics on the same topic. We should keep to one of them!

As I wrote in the other section. I don't think the CF reader would fit into the slot.

Oh, you can get the CF adapter in there, but the camera doesn't like it very much and I'd NEVER shoot with this much hardware hanging out of the camera. I got an "Unknown Media" message on the screen....no option to format or do anything else. BTW, that's the Delkin adapter.
