That suggests that the SD card would fit deeper inside the card allowing the door to close.

I cannot recall reading about anybody testing this adapter yet, or am I wrong?
All Expresscards have the same external dimensions. This allows them to sit flush when inserted into a Expresscard reader. The picture looks a lot like the casing of the AFT adapter, which does allow the door to close but I've found is flakey. There could be different firmware / chips in the card that might make it work better than the AFT. If you do order it, please let us know the results.

I ordered 2, I plan on using them together. I'll keep a SxS card handy though. Since this topic is directly related, I am still learning Vegas... how to you under and over crank through software? I heard you get better results that way anyhow.

Since the Extreme III does not work at all in the AFT expresscard adaptor, maybe you forgot how it failed.

Until I hear from someone regarding using the SanDisk Ultra II SDHC in the AFT, I would not trust the AFT adaptor.

My AFT works good for about 20 minutes before it fails. It seems like it may be a thermal problem, but without buying another or hearing from someone who has the AFT and Ultra II, I'll never know.

I can say that I've been testing the Kensington with the SanDisk Ultra II 4GB SDHC and the SanDisk 16GB Extreme III 30MB/s version SDHC for about two weeks with NO errors!

i wish these tests were conclusive before i bought 8 of the Lexar SSD cards. oh well, at least I can close the door, and still have 6hrs worth capture time, even if it is at 1080i60
(since my other camera is a Z1)

Steven,
You mention Ultra II 4GB in your previous, post, however I believe you mentioned the Ultra II 16GB in other posts. Are you have error free results in the Ultra II 16GB?

Since I'm using both the 16GB extreme III and 4GB Ultra II, I may typo the 16 on the wrong card... ? Hope not..

I mentioned it was the 4GB a while back.

http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/943222-post169.html

Well, if so. I'd say there's a very good chance that the 16GB Ultra II will work equal to the 4GB Ultra II in the Kensington. They both claim the same spec. I will know soon.

In fact, someone just posted at the other forum that the 16GB Ultra II is working fine with the Kensington reader.

I am new to the expresscard media so please excuse me if this is a totally different beast. I saw this Lexar 16GB express card for $77 at newegg. Could this work in the EX1? Has anyone tried it? It is 1/10 the cost of the Sony and Sandisk express cards.

Thanks Brian

Let us know how the SanDisk 32GB Ultra II 15MB/s SDHC card works with the Kensington.
If it can overcrank repeatably at 40FPS this will be great news.

When will you receive the 32GB Ultra II SDHC cards?

As Brian indicates:

If this works, why not use it instead of an adapter that does not allow the door to close? Does this allow the door to close? I would think it is a standard size and would.

Re-reading Brian's info, does the following mean the Lexar only works in SP mode with both the EX1 and EX3? Or does the SP limitation only apply to the EX3?

Yes I have the Lexar 8GB card and the size is identical to those Sony ones meaning the door can be fully close

I have ordered the SanDisk 32GB Ultra II 15MB/s SDHC card and it's due out this week in the UK. (The website says last week September so I hope there's no delays)

I have already got a Kensington so will post my results as soon as the Sandisk arrives.

LEXAR 8GB SSD speed test with Crystaldiskmark:

33.53 - 8.46
33.41 - 1.68
6.53 - 0.016

This card errors even in HQ mode - only reliable in SP mode - not recommended !
