Brian, Robert - I think for overcranking, we'll simply use the 8Gb SxS card that comes with EX1 anyway, included free with the camera.

For everything else, there's Masterca... I mean, SDHC.

Received my order for the Kensington 7 in 1 express card from Amazon.com today. This being my second order. It will now be my last.

I also received my order of 2 Delkin 6 in 1 express cards from Adorama also today. I must say i am very impressed with this set of cards.

I installed the Ultra 2 card in the Delkin, put it in my EX-1. The camera recognized the card. Asked if i wanted to " Format" the card. Which i did. Works perfectly.

Now with my latest order, i have a total of 4- 8 gig Sony SxS cards. 3- Kensington readers with 3- 16 gig Ultra 2 SDHC cards and 2- Delkin readers with 2- 16 gig Ultra 2 SDHC cards.

Lol. I think i,m set. 144 gigs.

BTW...
I have a feeling these Delkin cards are hit and miss for working.

Out of the two I bought. One had an unknown media when I first used it.
It started working, but then stopped again. It may be the internal contacts.
I played around with it, but it's not working.

I heard another similar report.

If you find a source, you may want to order more than needed to replace the ones that don't work.

Steven, in my view, Delkin is probably worse than IOC adapter. IOC at least will work reliably, but initially requires fumbling around, reinsertions, etc. until recognized by the cam.

Bottom line, it looks like the only 100% solution is Kensington right now.

I think, whatever the new adapter Chris is working on, he has a leeway of beta-testing it with people on this thread before mass-marketing that new adapter. And it better be reliable like Kensington :)

We'll have to test the Delkin more. Right now, it appears a quality control issue.

It may feel like the SxS card that came with the camera is free but it isn't. You paid for it.

I have 3 on the way and I assume a good number of people jumped on the Dekins last week as well when there was a good deal of evidence these things worked. In any event, we'll know in a few weeks once people run them through the paces.

I bought 2 Delkins at the beginning of the week got them Thur., 1 worked the other was bad from the getgo. The one that worked worked flawlessly but it's a bit picky how you insert the cards. If you hold it by the flat sides the SD card won't insert properly and will give you errors but if you hold the adapter by the narrow sides then the card inserts properly and no problems. Works every time! I can't wait for more stock so I can get 4-6 more Delkin adapters plus get my bad one replaced.

I talked face to face today with one of the top people in that company (can't name them just yet... they'll issue an announcement when they're ready, that's their own call to make and not mine). They're perfect for the job -- it's just a matter of how quickly they can do it what with the end of the year and all. And yes I certainly will recommend to them that certain key contributors to this thread have the opportunity to beta-test it and put it through the paces. Keep your fingers crossed,

Chris is the new card a full SXS type or an adapter card?

i had kensingtons on order from 3 places, cancelled them all once I got the
Delkins, that still leaves me only with 2. I might dump some of my Lexar SSDs
for some more adapters.

Dean, I think Chris is working on the adapter just like Kensington, but SHORTER so it'd fit inside EX1 compartment with the SDHC card in it, allowing EX1's door to close properly.

That's right -- a reliable, no-guess, no-fail working Express card adapter short enough to fit in an EX1 with the door closed. These guys already make high-quality SDHC cards, and they already have a world-wide distribution network, so they're perfect for the job. Should know more this week.
