For use with the XDCAM EX range of camcorders, this simple adapter enables the use of Sony Memory Sticks in the camcorder instead of SxS media.
Sony's innovative XDCAM EX professional product range is specifically designed to exploit the ultimate high speed performance and reliability of SxS PRO and SxS-1 media. However, SxS media is a professional format and not available from retail outlets, so in situations in the field where additional media is required or for cost-conscious users, where this ultimate performance is less important, Sony have developed the MEAD-MS01 adaptor to enable the use of consumer Memory Stick media.
The MEAD-MS01 adapter is the same shape as SxS memory cards so as to fit within the media slots on XDCAM EX camcorders, with no protrusions, allowing the media cover to be in place during shooting. The adapter can accept one high speed Memory Stick which simply slots inside.
Sony Professional recommends only the Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo HX Series for use with this adapter.
Using 8-, 16-, or 32-GB media, approximately 35, 70, or 140 minutes of recording (in SP mode) can be achieved.
Please note, it is not recommended Slow Motion recording function be utilised, due to speed limitations of Memory Stick media. The nature of the adapter and Memory Stick media will also mean slightly less reliability than SxS media - caution should be exercised when turning off XDCAM EX hardware during recording. XDCAM EX hardware may need firmware upgrade to use MEAD-MS01 - please see specifications for more information.
