Sony has a new full size 2/3" camera that is using SxS cards and claims 50 megabits per second recording, but they are also selling 'new' SxS cards. Anyone had and experience recording at 50Mb/s using SxS cards? I understand the 10MB cards are technically capable of the speed (up to 80 Mb/s) just wanted to know if anyone has seen it.
The PMW-500 records in both EX and Optical XDCAM formats. In Optical mode it formats the SxS media with the Optical Disc file structure and can record 50 Mb 422 in addition to several of the 'legacy' optical codecs. This can be done on any SxS-branded media (SxS Pro, SxS-1A) but not to SDHC or Memory Stick. SDHC and Memory Stick can be used in FAT mode.
