New Transcend Express cards 32 Gb

I found in the Transcend web site a new Expresscard of 32 Gb for $99.
It does not clearly say if that card is compatible with the XDCAM-EX1.
Have someone already tried it ?
For that price, it would no longer be interesting to buy SDHC cards that go in a slot of the MxR Adapter...

I don't think it ever will say if it is compatible for EX cameras as this MxR/SDHC is actually unapproved at the moment. I tried finding the this cards but I had no luck. Can you post the URL? Depending on if it is like the 16 gig class 6 I think it will work.

This question has been asked atleast dozen times... trancscend cards are old news and will not work. Currently no other than official SxS express card (sony, sandisk, jvc) work in EX1/3. Not working express card SSDs include transcend, a-data, delkin or belkin or both, verbatim.

Tuomas,
The TRANSCEND 16 gig class 6 SDHC cards together with the MxR work perfectly. I am using them and before I used them for hire I tested and tested them and the Transcend brand is a great SDHC media solution. This is a good source for purchasing.

I found this new Delkn card cheaper than the Sandisk, in the B&H Video Store
Delkin Devices | 16GB PRO Secure Digital (SDHC) | DDSDPRO2-16GB

Can someome confirm that it works well with the EX1 and the MxR card adapter

Yes, you are right. I bought one of them. But before deciding to buy about 6 of them, I wanted to choose between Transcend and Delkin which is cheaper and also SDHC Class 6.
So I am waiting for someone to tell me that it does work as well.

I just purchased a dozen (12) of these Transcend 16 gig Class 6 SDHC cards. I will testify that yes they work and they work as expected, I ever have a few that can sustain overcranking 720p 24 to 48 fps

The original poster is not referring to Transcend SDHC cards. He is referring to Express Cards. None of these cards work.

sustained overcranking 720p 60 fps

I also bought 4 of these Transcend 16 gig Class 6 SDHC cards.

They work as expected, I even have sustained overcranking 720p 60 fps, I know it should NOT be possible, but I did it with a few of my cards.
Had the Sony 8 GB card in the other slot and thought I was using that when I set to 720p 60 fps, but it was the Transcend card and they worked fine for an entire 25 min helicopter ride.

There good have ordered more.

Are you sure you overcranked?
720p60 is not overcranking.
720p24/60 or 720p30/60 is overcranked.

Thanks

Ronnie, that's not a Transcend card, it's a Kingston card.

"Transcend" is the manufacturer, just like SanDisk or Kingston.
