Sonnet Technologies unveils its SDHC Adapter for SxS Camera Slot designed for use in Sony XDCAM camcorders—which uses SxS memory cards—and which enables those camcorders to use Class 10 and faster SDHC memory cards in place of SxS memory cards.
The Sonnet adapter supports the performance required for HD recording modes while allowing users to save money on the purchase of Class 10 and faster SDHC memory cards in equivalent capacities, Sonnet Technologies, of Irvine, Calif., says in a written statement.
Sonnet’s SDHC Adapter for SxS Camera Slot is the same size as an SxS memory card and, unlike standard memory card adapters, allows the SDHC card to fit flush inside its shell. This critical feature makes the Sonnet adapter interchangeable with SxS cards, and it ensures that the camcorder’s memory card slot door closes completely with the adapter inserted, Sonnet says. Because SxS cards share the same form factor and interface as ExpressCard/34 adapters, the Sonnet adapter can be inserted directly into a notebook computer’s ExpressCard slot to read the SDHC card. For users whose computers lack an ExpressCard slot, the SDHC card can be read in any SDHC card reader.
Sonnet’s SDHC Adapter for SxS Camera Slot offers Sony XDCAM camcorder users an affordable and useful alternative to using SxS memory cards for recording. Available at the price of a single SxS card, the Sonnet adapter and several high-quality SDHC memory cards empower users to shoot longer without having to offload footage, reformat, and reuse the same SxS card, Sonnet says.
