For North American folks, as previously mentioned, I'm talking to a U.S. company about an adapter. So there will be more than one available option depending on where you are in the world.

I have tried the Delkin adapter before purchased from Fry's electronics got change media error this is one on the first adapters that I tested but it was with a patriot card. I decided to go back to Fry's and try it again same thing change media error the card did not fit inside the adapter it stuck out even further than the Kensington. They must have revised the design have any of you guys tried the Delkin.

Brian, there seems to be a version 1 and a version 2 (the one needed for the EX1).
However, I have not yet found a hint how to differentiate those two version.

Edit: Just read in the other forum that the older Delkin reader has the Delkin Device logo on the front and the SDHC card does not insert flush (above called version 1).
The new Delkin card reader does not have the logo on it and the SD card DOES mount flush (above called version 2). That's the one and
only that works with your EX 1. Thx GB.

I think the best thing to do is order direct from Delkin. I have ordered but have not received
my card yet.

Card

I just picked up another Kensington 7 in 1 card @ the Marietta Georgia Micro Center store. I had heard some of you west coast EX-1 users had some luck @ Micro center in the past.

I just happened to go to their website, punched in the 7 in 1 information and what do you know, up pop,s a card in my area.

Picked it up for $39.99. Now i have 2. I see no reason to purchase anymore. As i have 4 Sony SxS cards in the 8 gig flavor and 2 Kensingtons and 2 -16 gig Sandisk sdhc cards, i think i am set for my style of work and market.

The open door issue on the EX-1 for me at least is a non- issue. I use a 2 inch piece of (Black paper gaffers tape) to avoid any foreign matter from entering the card area.

In the future, as long as the 2 Kensington cards work properly, i will just buy SDHC cards.

Thank you.

New EX3 Firmware

I'm curious...

Has anyone considered or had the thought that the alleged firmware update (December) for the EX3 may contain a "fix" that would prevent the use of the SDHC combination?

Is Sony planning a firmware update for the EX1 as well?

Or am I just being paranoid?

Just a quick post to report that my second Kensington Express card adapter arrived today and all works perfectly with a new Transend 16GB SDHC Class 6 card as expected. My EX3 just asked me to to reformat the media on insertion and then all was good to go.

My other Kensington (paired with a Sandisk Ultra II a couple of weeks back) is also still working absolutely fine (despite the few media error messages I initially got the first time I used it - see posts by me a while ago on this thread).

This is very exciting news Chris! I've already damaged the door on my EX1 by leaving it open whilst using the Kensington. An adapter that allowed the door to close properly would really expand the range of shoots that I could take on. I would pay a premium over the Kensington or another adapter in order to allow for the door to close. Cheers!
