For use with the XDCAM EX range of camcorders, this simple adapter enables the use of SD memory cards in the camcorder instead of SxS media.
Expanding media choice for XDCAM EX family
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-SD02 adapter (replacing the MEAD-SD01), to enable the use of consumer SD Card media.
The MEAD-SD02 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 SDHC or SDXC Card, which simply slots inside.
Please note, it is not recommendedthat Slow Motion recording is used in conjunction with this adapter due to speed limitations of SD Card media. The nature of the adapter and SD Card 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 might need a firmware upgrade to use MEAD-SD02 - please see specifications for more information.
