Continuous recording from SXS to SDHC card.

Sorry, if this has been ask before but I'm wondering if its safe to let the camera record till the SxS card is full, then continue recording (non stop) to a SDHC card in the other slot.
Will it record right through to the other slot without throwing up error messages.

Thanks in advance.

I do this often with SDHC. It's never a problem.

In fact that's the first test I do to make sure the SDHC cards are good. Two cards and I run them straight through in one long record.

I have done this over a dozen times with no problems. It's been over a year and I have not had one failure with SDHC cards. EX1, MxR, Sandisk Ultra II 16GB, Transcend 16GB, SxS 16GB, 8GB.

Yes, I mix SxS and SDHC cards on LONG continuous shoots all the time. No problems. Ingest time is much better (of course) with SxS so I use these first and then use SDHC cards with adapters when I run out of SxS cards.

Thanks Craig, Kevin and Andrew.

Andrew, thats what I might have to do today, if I run out of SxS Cards. I've a wedding today and the bride has asked me if I would stay for a wee bit of the disco. I never do this but I said I would do, this time, ONLY.

I have plenty of SDHC cards so thats why I asked.

Thanks all.
