Just Tried 3 Transcend 32GB SDHC Cards - All Good

I ordered 3 32gb Transcend SDHC cards and they arrived today.

Put them in a separate M&R reader each.

Turned the EX-1 on, it asked to format the card, went from 0% to 79% then done in a few seconds.

Started recording 1080p30.

I will be testing longer form recording but these cards look like a winner so far.

Glad to hear that the 32 gig cards are working properly. Where did you get them?

I am interested in trying them also.

Thanks

I did not purchase them from a DVInfo sponsor, so it is not proper to name the merchant here.

They were $104 each.

So if the low price is $104 for a 32GB card and the Transcend 16GB cards average around $35-$40, they seem overpriced since I can by an extra 16GB card for the same price and have 48GB. They are pretty easy to switch since I have six express card adapters for them and keep them preloaded.

looks like you pay a premium for the ability to have the high capacity. If you need it, then it's worth it.

I prefer the 16g because I can sell them to the client much easier at $50 each.

I have a couple of 32gb SanDisk cards and they came in very handy when I was shooting many hours of continuous talking heads at a conference. Otherwise, it is certainly much more economical to use multiple 16gb cards.

Pardon my abysmal ignorance, but what's an M&R reader and who sells them? Also, what firmware is required to make the Transcend cards functional in the EX1?

Thanks.

You will also need firmware version 1.11 on the EX1 for the MxR solution to work.

My 32GB Transcends shipped today. Just in time for my return to Bangkok next week.

Don't the MxR cards stick out a bit and prevent the card door from closing? Or was that one of the other formfactors?

Nope that was another type of adapter.

The MxR fit in the cameras without sticking out, as the SD cards slide fully inside the adaptor.
