[Ron Shook] "That would certainly be good if it works out to be the case.

It's always been understood that once an SxS card is inserted into a laptop's Express 34 slot it will show up on the desktop as a device like anything else: hard drive, etc. So, at least for the Mac people, once the media's been transfered using the Sony software you can start up Disk Utility, select the card from the various choices and format in FAT32. Should only take a few seconds.

I've no idea what the PC people will do (I'm not a user) but everything is FAT32 for them anyway. I think. Also, since FAT32 has a 4GB file size limit I suspect the camera will start a new clip when that limit is reached.
