Yes, just place your SD card in a reader and use ClipBrowser to transfer the files. You may have to wait a few seconds for the card to show up, sometimes I find it quicker to shut down CB 2 and start it up again. So far no lost clips, other than the ones I didn't select whilst doing a transfer - you only make this mistake once.

When you remove one card and then put the next card in, click on the clip window then hit F5 (refresh) on the keyboard. This makes the card/clip show up faster.

Yes, I have a Mac Pro and I purchased a SDCH card reader and it works very good.

My suggestion is to carry x2 more MxR, because contacts would be the weakest element of the system and failure likely to happen just because of connectivity problem.

will not work with overcranking

Sorry for not getting this but what exactly is considered overcranking on the EX1 1080 30p?
or 720 60p?
Either, is the kensington adapter the way to go? Most reliable, etc?
Best, Craig

I've used the Kensingtons without one failure. But they are too long and the door does not close on the EX1. I sold them and have been using the MxRs with the Sandisk and Transend 16bg (without one failure).

DO you guys have as many MxR cards as you have SD cards, or do you swap them "on the fly"?

I've got a dozen adaptors now.

I've been on a four day shoot, just shoving the suckers in like fresh tapes, bag for empties, bag for fulls. No stress.

You really don't want to be fiddling about when shooting.

Compared to SxS, we can afford to have an adaptor per card. You may sell the cards on to the client post-shoot, and that's not a problem.

Just that lovely feeling of a pocket full of sticks - we'll shoot until the talent runs out of oxygen. Man, the time I asked for a little break to offload? For those who had never done this before, I got so much stink. Bad enough changing tapes. Swapping cards? Anathema. Sheesh, the shorter it is, the bigger the problem.

Before all this SDHC stuff became possible, I remember planning a point in which I would do a download while on a train between locations on a hectic day's shoot, but was worried about battery life with 2x HDs, 1 MacBook Pro and finding a fricken seat with a table on the train between locations. That's when I purchased a truck load of adaptors and SD cards.

IMHO buy an adaptor per SDHC card so you have, erm, a sort of 'clip'. Insert alternative scene of your favourite action movie here.

To me it's so easy to take the SDHC cards out of the adaptors that I get by easily with just two adaptors.

Yes,

As long as you remove the adapter from the camera first. So if you are shooting for more than 108 minutes you still have to take the adapter out of the camera and change SDHC cards before re-inserting it back into the camera. It's easier to have many of them loaded and ready to go.

I think it's all about reducing work when on location. I have seen a post somewhere that highlights that the cock up factor is not something to contemplate with this media. I have 10 MXR with Transcend 16gbs + 4 SXS 16gbs - these will normally keep me going for 2-3 days without downloading. I can mark the adaptors much more easily than the SDHC card.
