Do the SxS cards get very hot during operation?

Just wondering if SxS cards get very hot during operation in the camera? (EX1)

I'm actually using aftermarket cards in an adapter and they get very very hot. All seems well except for the heat.

Do the original sony cards do the same thing?

Is this normal?

Warm, but not hot. Yes, it's normal.

When you say warm, do you mean as warm as most other electronic items such as TV's can get?

My aftermarket cards get a lot warmer than that, leaning towards hot. I've never felt 'electronic' equipment as hot as these cards.

Hot enough for me to wonder what's going on.

SO the SxS you say, don't get as hot as I'm describing then?

I wonder how bad this can be.. Hmmm.

"Hot" -- the stove is hot! Hot to me means capable of causing burns.

As I said, what you are experiencing is normal. The SxS cards get nowhere near as warm as computer memory or CPUs or hard drives. It's all the same.

Nothing to fear.

When shooting 720p60 on a 8 GB sxs or 16GB sxs the cards become about as warm as they would if you held them in your fist for a few minutes. I have shot continuously for hours and it did not change the amount of heat.

I wish I was good at one thing rather than average at many, but oh well.
