Volker, what exactly are the make/models of the adapter and cards that you use?

Links to online product info would be appreciated, thanks...

Please let us know the exact model number for these cards?

Can you run all HQ modes without any errors?

Also, can you find out the highest overcrank FPS at 24P without an error?

The Kensington/Ultra II 15MB/s SDHC combo can overcrank to 40FPS at 24P without an error.

Volker is talking about an sxs card made by transcend, not an sd/adaptor combo.
I've also tried the transcend sxs card in my EX1, it works ok as long as not overcranking.
I can get them from the same supplier as my sdhc cards.
The sdhc cards work out cheaper though.

Actually, Transcend do NOT make SxS cards (yet). They do make SSD cards like the cheap Lexar SSD cards that work in the SP mode only.
I imagine these are the cards mentioned:
http://www.transcendusa.com/Products...No=0&ModNo=162

So I'm really interested in if these SSD cards (especially the 32GB) will overcrank 24P higher than 40FPS without errors.

Yes you're correct, sorry, i know they're ssd (solid state drive) cards but some people do not know what that is, so i just refer to them as sxs cards so as to avoid confusion, ie we're not talking about the combo but one physical card, similar to sony's.

I actually think that calling SSD cards SxS creates MORE confusion. :-)

kensington adaptor

With either sandisk extreme 3
sandisk ultra 2
or transcend class 6

I've been using the transcend,8 & 16gb, no problems so far.

All you have to do is shut the camera off, then turn it back on.
Having said that, it may error again. The PNY may not be fast enough.

Remember you guys suggested keeping the card in the adapter, and just pulling/inserting the whole thing, just like SxS card?

Now you can :) Just got a Buy.com promo, Cables Unlimited IOC-9750 adapter is under $8 (after rebate) with free shipping.

So I guess now you can get a couple of them with equal number of Sandisk Ultra II 15Mb/s cards, and each set gets you about 1hr of HQ 1080p recording time in EX1. For $68 instead of $800. (It won't do overkranking over 40fps, of course, but everything else is the same as SxS card.)

I own it, and in all my tests, this IOC-9750 adapter never produced any errors, so seems like it's as good as Kensington (which is $36.)

Enjoy :)

So which, if any, of these functional adapter combos allow the EX1's card door to close?
