    I agree with Doug. I don't think we're quite at the technology tipping point yet where there is something "better", "cheaper". One should endeavor to buy equipment at the peak of a technology cycle...

    Prodigi was the best.
    I remember him saying... Unless you have recognizable actor faces, don't use unknown actor's faces in the poster. Instead, use "iconic" imagery of what the story is about.

    If using a 32gb media, at the moment, I would only trust an SxS card as Doug mentioned. With an SDHC card, you're asking a lot in the 32gb size. Having said that, I have been successfully using...

    My most reliable SDHC cards are 16gb Transcend (have about 10). Most NOT reliable have been Patriot. Use the MxR adapter. I realize the variables include

    Yeah... Interesting. Actually I was referring to the Sony brand of SDHC cards. They're about the same price as the SanDisk's. If a Sony SDHC card doesn't work, then certainly the problem would...

    Sandisk cards seem to be somewhat suspect currently. Transcend seem to be a little more stable. Now Sony has their brand cards out too. My first guess is the card / reader combo is having a hard...

    Just a note... I would never do overcranking or undercranking on anything but a Sony SxS card. Those processes ask a lot of the the writing ability of the sdhc card and the adapter.

    I have the MXR Adapter and had few problems. Good to hear about the Sony Adapter. I have about 20 16gb cards. The best seem to be the Transcend...even the class 6. Worst is Patriot class 10.

    Bummer... I had very good service with Sony Repair in Los Angeles. I guess that can be maddening, but being without the camera for 2 weeks might be impossible too.
