SDHC card to SxS adapter

Sonnet Technologies has introduced an SDHC Adapter for SxS Camera Slot, for use in Sony XDCAM camcorders that use SxS memory cards for recording. The adapter enables the use of Class 10 or faster SDHC cards in place of SxS cards, giving the performance required for HD recording modes while allowing users to make big savings on the purchase of memory.

The Adapter costs $49.95, so users could buy multiple large capacity SDHC cards for less than a single SxS card, allowing them to shoot longer without having to offload footage, reformat, and then reuse the same SxS card.

Unlike standard memory card adapters it allows the SD card to fit flush inside, which means it is interchangeable with SxS cards, and it ensures that the camcorder's memory card slot door closes completely with the adapter inserted.

Because SxS cards share the same form factor and interface as ExpressCard/34 adapters, the Sonnet adapter can be inserted directly into a laptop's ExpressCard slot to read the SDHC card, or the cards can be read in any SDHC card reader.
