Irvine, Calif. - Sonnet Technologies has introduced an adapter for Sony XDCAM camcorders allowing SDHC memory cards to be used in the cameras' SxS memory card slots.
The SDHC Adapter for SxS Camera Slot enables the use of Class 10 and faster SDHC memory cards in place of more expensive SxS memory cards while supporting the performance required for HD recording modes, the company said.
The adapter retails for $49.95, approximately the price of a single SxS card.
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.
