Product Highlights
  • 64GB Data Storage Capacity
  • Max. Read Speed: 1.2 Gbps
  • ExpressCard Compliant

With a transfer rate that's 50% faster than the previous generation of SxS-1 cards, the 64GB SxS-1 Memory Card is an affordable, Flash-based media option designed for Sony's XDCAM EX line of camcorders, now including the PMW-500. Offering the same performance and reliability as more expensive SxS Pro cards, the SxS-1 has about one-tenth the lifespan (about 5-years with heavy use). These entry-level cards are ultra fast, durable, and can record up to 180 minutes of HQ video. The higher transfer speed translates to improved XDCAM workflow and faster ingest times, making the G1A an ideal media solution, from shoot to edit. See SxS Memory Card / Hardware Compatibility Chart.

An approximately 5-year estimated life when recording at full capacity once per day
Users can check the card life on their XDCAM and XDCAM EX equipment, and even see an alarm when the data rewriting limit is reached
The new generation of SxS-1 memory card is compatible with XDCAM EX equipment updated with the latest camcorder firmware. It will also be compatible with the PMW-500 camcorder, and with the PDW-HR1 field station using a PDBK-MK1 SxS Memory Card adapter

      This SxS-1 card is as great and reliable as the SxS-PRO model. I wasn't sure in the beginning. Using the SxS-PRO at least for 2 years, they appear to be absolutely reliable (rain, cold, hot, etc). The 'little bigger' SxS-1 model seems to be the same. Much more affordable. The extra reading speed (1200 against 800 Mb/sec) of this G1A model shows up while inserted in the MacBookPro for download. The software shows 10x speed instead of 6x before... Really cool. And what about the write/read limit in time ? Sony mentioned 5 years of service by using it at 1 time per day... Well, this give me some years before complaining !

              A durable and reliable card with fast transfer speeds. It is designed for about 2,000 rewrite cycles, which is more than enough for me. For cameras that can record in the UDF file format, you must use these SxS cards. If you use the card adapters, you cannot record in the UDF mode. Obviously, I wish that these cards can be priced lower.

              Comments about Sony 64GB SxS-1 Memory Card:

              I know. It's tempting to buy the adapters and SD cards to use in the XDCAM EX cameras. No one likes to spend more than they have to.

              But as a professional who works with several major national television organizations, I will not use anything but Sony SxS cards on video that counts. That means I buy the good stuff, and this is the good stuff.

              Not only is a genuine Sony SxS card far less likely to fail, transfer rates are WAY faster than SD cards. When you are in the field ingesting video into your laptop or onto a drive, those minutes count, especially if you are on deadline.

              Plus, these SxS cards are built like tanks. There's no worrying about how the fragile SD card is seated in the adapter or how the adapter is seated in the camera. Or if the card you bought is really Class 10 and really made by the manufacturer on the label.

              Sure, these cards cost more money than I'd like to spend on them. But if you want to cut corners, cut them on something else. When it comes to recording media, it's not worth the risk. If you want to gamble, go to a casino!

                                I use this card in my Sony PMW-320K and it works like a charm. If you shoot for an extended amount of time I recommend these because they don't fill up quickly so you don't have to switch cards over and over again. The file write/transfer was really fast too.

                                  Card life, used full capacity, format, once per day for 5 years. That's a great value at less than $700 compared to the Pro series cards.

                                  I teach at a state school. This SxS-1 card offers a relatively inexpensive and reliable option for student content acquisition. The cards are being used in a Sony PMW-EX1R. I have no complaints. So far as the card has been very stable. Downloading onto our Xsan system is fast and efficient.

                                    My complaint isn't with the functionality of the card. It works fine.My only concern is that I paid [$] for a product that has a limited life span.You don't see Panasonic putting a limited life span on their P2 cards! Sony is just greedy and wants you to have to buy their products time and again.I just hope I get my money's worth before it decides to die on me.Also, it would be nice to know when it plans to fail. I don't like the idea of going to shoot a film and not knowing when my media plans to fail on me. I would buy the 32g Pro cards but they are only 32g and I need the longer recording times of the 64g-1 because of the kind of work I do.

                                      The great thing about paying the extra $$$ for this over the aftermarket cards with SD card inserts is I never have to question whether it will work, format properly and run at any fps.

                                      Also, download time is much improved.

                                          Does what it says. Works fine with my MacBook pro and final cut pro. A tad pricy, but does the job and saves your camera and saves space on your desk.
