Just recevied the Kensington adapter. I had a Transcend 16Gb Class 6 SDHC card already. Short tests gives me this:

720/50p: ok
720/25p: ok
1080/25p: ok
720/25p at 50 or 60 fps: media error after 10sec

Note that this is only a few minutes recording. Right now I have the camera running at 1080/25p and hope fill up the entire card. I'll get back with the result.

Using the Kensington adapter with Transcend 8 gb card in EX3 has worked fine in preliminary tests. Will really try to beat it to death later today, but so far recording fine in 1080i60 and 1080p24

Thanks Marten.

Did you try it on an EX1, or EX3?

Well, I looked at your previous posts and determined it was probably and EX3.

More testing with the Kensington 7-in-1 and Transcend 8 gb card.

Filled just about the whole card with mostly 1080i60 footage. Not a single media error and footage was all fine-- no glitches.

this is the bomb. I am anxious to see what the other card does (the one that fits
flush). I am ready to jump on two of those.

please call me a moron (thank you). So what we you are saying is the Kensington 7 in 1 Media Reader for ExpressCard Slot" model number 33407EU with The 8Gb Transcend class 6 SD cards seem to work in the EX3 on most modes? Again is anyone reporting any problems in any of the modes of shooting on the EX3?

Obviously this is huge news. I am just about to order and the reason I ask is that I see a couple of Transcend cards one cheaper than the other both class 6. Do you have the model number of these cards? I am trying to get this thing up and running and this looks like a great option. This forum fascinates me...Thanks for the info guys!!!

Well, as Ned and I discussed at the local FCP meeting last night, I wouldn't rush to use this solution on paying gigs until things are more certain. You don't want to be the one explaining to the client that the shot is gone because you used an 'inexpensive' solution to record with.

I think this is really cool and has huge potential!

Just a thought regarding the expresscard compactflash adapter...

The expresscard interface is useful due to it's potential high speed data transfer. Indeed Delikn push the adapter for use with UDMA cards. The UDMA is up to 2 times faster than standard (non UDMA) cards. So the expresscard CF adapter may work best if used with a UDMA CF card. Anyone tried that?

On another note... this is not a setup I would want to use on my EX1. That CF card hanging outside the body is very vulnerable.

John.
I tried the Delkin Expresscard 34 CompactFlash adapter yesterday with RiDATA 32GB 233X CF.
The EX1 would not recognize this combo and throws an error message (Unkown Media type. Please Change) as soon as you power up. If I remove the CF card from the adapter, it does not show an error message (For whatever that's worth). I had an old 512MB 66X CF card kicking around which threw the same error message.

It appears the card does not work with the EX1.

With the EX1, If I can get the AFX 7-in-1 or the Kensington 33407 7-in-1 adapter to work with hight speed SDHC, such as the EXtreme III 30MB/S 16GB I just ordered, this would be awesome news.

I'll know about the SDHC and expresscard adpater combo in about 2 weeka or less. The Extreme III 30MB/s card will take almost 2 weeks to ship.

Indeed it would because yesterday, SanDisk also introduced a 32GB Extreme III CF card claiming to operate at 30MB/s for $299 US. To ship in October.
