The MXM Express Card adapter 34 allows your Sony EX1/R/3 to record to inexpensive SDHC cards. Compliant with Expresscard USB 2.0 Standard. Suitable for desktop/laptop with Expresscard/34 slot. Compatible for both desktop and mobile devices. Supplied with a tough little case.
Note: It is now possible to successfully over crank to 60fps on the EX1R using selected SDHC memory cards (ATP Pro Max, RAW Hoodman and SanDisk).
The new improved lockable MxM expresscard/34 reader has been specifically designed and manufactured for use in Sony EX1/EX3 video cameras. The measurements of the card are comparable with Sony’s SxS media card. The design of the MxM expresscard/34 accommodates SDHC memory cards without protruding out of the adapter. Therefore, the physical measurements are closely matched to Sony’s SxS media card. Thus, it allows media chamber door to totally close on the EX1/EX3 cameras. The MxM utilizes a very reliable push in/push out mechanism and is embodied in a rugged stainless steel case, which minimizes accidental damage. The MxM expresscard/34 has been field tested and works best with the popular memory card manufacturers ATP ProMax Class 6, RAW SDHC Class 6 from Hoodman Corporation, Sandisk or Transcend. These memory cards are one of the fastest and have the best specifications for read and write for Sony EX1/EX3 cameras.
The MxM expresscard/34 will record at 1920 x 1080/50i or 60i35mb/s HQ in the same way as your SxS Pro memory card will record. This is the most popular format the majority of video operators will record at. By utilizing a combination of MxM expresscard/34 and a reasonably priced SDHC memory card, film makers and videographers on location can now shoot for days, without the unnecessary and costly need of extra equipment to safeguard their footage to laptops or pcs. They can offload at their convenience at a later stage and reduce interruptions during the filming process.
This improved version of the MxM is now lockable and features a removable latch door as well as an improved internal and external design. The new latch door can be fully disengaged if required and is easily reassembled into position by inserting the latch and turning it 90° clockwise back into the locking position.
MxM expresscard/34 in combination with the most accepted SDHC memory cards will not over crank above 720p/45fps successfully (tested with the ATP ProMax Class 6, RAW SDHC 16GB Class 6 and Sandisk). You may be able to achieve a higher rate, but only for short periods (10s - 3s long clips) as it is limited to Sony’s EX1/EX3 implementation of USB interface.
Which firmware should I have to use MXM cards?
MXM cards will only work with firmware 1.11_0531 and 1.12 on EX1. All EX1 cameras produced post August 2008 come with this update. There is no present issues with firmware on EX3 cameras, as all EX3 are made USB enabled from its release. To check which version of software your camcorder has, press the Cancel+Select+Menu buttons simultaneously and you will enter the Service Menu. Navigate down to IF and you will see the camcorders software version. If your camcorder needs to have an update, contact us at Prokit or your local Sony Authorised Service Centre.
Why should I use a MxM card instead of Sony SxS card?
The biggest consideration to use the MXM cards is the price. To be able to record using a modestly priced adapter, onto commodity priced SDHC cards has dropped the cost per hour of footage to between 1/6th and 1/8th of SxS . This has led producers to be able to complete shoots without the need to offload to Laptop. Some producers are completing several days of shooting and downloading when they return to the studio. Others are handing over the SDHC cards at the end of the shoot, in the same way they did with tape.
