Product Highlights
  • 32GB Data Storage Capacity
  • Max. Read Speed: 1.2Gbps
  • Min. Write Speed: 240Mb/s
  • ExpressCard Compliant

With a transfer rate that's 50% faster than the previous generation of SxS-1 cards, the 32GB 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 140 minutes of HD 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.

ExpressCard Compliant
The SxS-1 memory card is fully compliant with the ExpressCard industry standard, adopted worldwide by PC manufacturers to replace the legacy PC Card format. ExpressCard technology provides improved performance, simplicity and reliability over traditional PC cards.
High capacity of 32GB, plus super fast data transfer speeds of up to 1.2Gbps read and at least 240Mb/s write, making for quick file transfers and optimized workflow
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.

    so far, only used this on a couple of shoots, but it works. I don't know why anyone would economize on media. OTOH, this isn't the top-of-the-line Sony memory card, and I wonder why there is a distinction. My understanding is that the card keeps a record of the number of times it's been used, and starts giving warnings to replace it, after a certain number of cycles.

    So I'm rating a 3 simply because of my faith in Sony Products. As often happens, I ordered these cards the week I needed them only to learn that my early generation Sony PMW-EX1 camera needed a firmware upgrade in order to format and use them.

    The remainder of my comments have to do with Sony requiring these early EX1s be shipped to CA to upgrade the firmware and not publishing the shortcut to access maintenance menu in the camera so you can locate your current Firmware version. It's not in the manual and it took me three calls to Sony service to actually speak to someone who could help.

    I guess this all falls into the category of "it is what it is…", but thought readers who plan to purchase these cards would like to know that firmware upgrades may be required.

    What could have been a difficult down-time without my camera was salvaged by a very helpful Regional Sales Manager for Sony who has gone out of her way to make a Demo camera available for some work I have coming up.

    works Sony XDCAM EX-1

          Comments about Sony 32GB SxS-1 Memory Card:

          I shoot with a Sony XDCAM EX-1 and in order to use this SXS-1 card the XDCAM firmware must be version 1.30. I installed firmware version 1.30 myself, with care, following all instructions and not shutting down or being impatient during the process - otherwise the camera might lose its functionality.

          The card was recognized, recorded, played back a shot and showed one minute less capacity than my older SXS (now called "PRO"), which is less than a 1% difference, which is negligible.

          I have yet to reformat, or shoot at a higher frame rate, but I have little doubt the card will continue to perform as advertised.

            Use the 64GB card for corporate video, shooting 2-3 times per week. Worked over the last 18 months fairly well until now. Starting to have transfer problems from the card. Some files won't transfer, and give error messages. Sometimes they transfer without the audio. Have lost a few files. I have to make multiple tries, one file at a time to eventually get everything.

                              I do not own a camera that accepts SXS cards, but I rent them quite often. Recently I did a broadcast shoot and dumped the footage to the clients drive. I confirmed with the client that I was deleting my back-up. A few days later their drive crashed and the footage was lost. If I had returned my rented camera with the rental SXS cards it would have been very bad.

                                    Comments about Sony 32GB SxS-1 Memory Card:

                                    There are cheaper options out there (SDHC cards with Expresscard adapters), but having reliable media is priceless. Also, transfer speeds are incredibly fast.

                                    If you have bought an XDCAM recently then you need an SxS card buy 2 of these and you might be able to shoot 2 hours.

                                            For the price I might recommend the new 64GB SxS-1 card but either way you go, these cards will not dissapoint! high storage capacity and up to a 9:1 import ratio will leave you wondering how you ever recorded to a tape in the first place.

                                              These things really stream line all projects. They are the best media out there to shoot on.
