Forgot to add that I used a Sandisk Extreme III card which, according to Sandisk, tops out at 30 MB/sec data rate.

And you are using the latest 1.11 firmware?

Nope, not that brave or rich. I can't afford any of the upgrades that 1.11 allows me to use.

No need to bring deities into this. I was simply working off of this quote from Oyvind:


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

Next thing we know... someone with 1.11 firmware will actually be able to use CF adapter to record on CF cards. Maybe?

This is all very interesting... Quite tempting to update firmware and try it out. Any idea whether sony will be able to tell/care if firmware was user-updated? guess they'd check the service history if i sent it in and realize my firmware was newer than it should be. im not really that interested in giving up my warranty.

DITTO with 8gb Pro-duo will not work unknown media .

I am done ...I am using the Lexar 8Gb express card SSd for back up SP mode Only. Do not be surprised if Sony updates the firmware again and locks out the after market cards it can be done.

guys with EX1.
Can you please test whether Lexar 16 gig express card works? Record in 25mb/sec is good enough.

Here's a thought. I wonder if you can use a Sony/Sandisk SxS in Slot 1 to record to, then bump the data over to a cheap 16 or 32 Lexar in Slot 2 in camera to off load? Might be more convenient than a laptop in many situations, and the sticks are so cheap.

Has anyone tried the Lexar cards in an EX3 yet?

I assume this is a "give it to your dealer" kind of thing to upgrade the camera?

Currently it is a "ship it to Sony" kind of thing.

firmware 1.11

Perhaps I missed it, but aside from the discussion here about memory cards, etc. Is there any real information about what's different / better in firmware v1.11?
