        An amazing solution for fast downloading or even using the XQD cards in the F5 / F55 cameras!

          Comments about Sony XQD ExpressCard Adapter:

          Does pretty much what it is supposed to do. I use my USB Sony XQD card reader that came with my D4 at home on my desktop. I bought this ExpressCard adapter for my laptop at the office. I have not run them head-head to see if there is a speed difference, but i can say that this ExpressCard adapter seemed just as fast. It worked flawlessly with my Thinkpad.

          There was no storage case for this adapter, which would have been nice to store in my laptop case, but it seems sturdy enough to hold up in the long run.

            Comments about Sony XQD ExpressCard Adapter:

            Totally disappointed with this product; I use Lexar XQD 32 GB card; when mounted on this express card adapter, my MAC BOOK PRO (running on mountain lion OX) did not recognise the card at all; Not only that, afterwards, my Lexar XQD card became non usable in my D4; I had to re-formatt the card in the D4 and then it is now working fine. .... I am not sure how this adapter will behave with SONY XQD card... I haven't tried .... totally waste of money. NO, I do not reccomend this to anybody.

                Great product at a reasonable price, this adapter allows XQD cards to be used in place of SxS cards in professional camcorders.

                    Leaving cardreader behind at the office is a nightmare for a photographer working in the field. It will not happen again with XQD ExpressCard Adapter in the computer. I do not have USB 3.0 and ExpressCard Adapter seems to work faster than my USB 2.0.

                      The express card adapter is much quicker than using the USB XQD adapter that came with the Nikon D4. I gave the USB card reader a try and it was super slow to get pictures off the XQD card especially when converting the NEF files directly to DNG format in Lightroom.
