XQD cards via Sony SxS adapters in Alexa?

Mon Apr 18, 2016 4:49 am

Hi guys,

We've got a shoot coming up, where we'd really prefer fewer card changes to wrangle (we currently have half a dozen 32GB SxS cards).

And I'm wondering if the new 128GB Sony XQD cards are compatible with the Alexa when used with the Sony SxS adapter? We've used them on the F55 before and they worked a treat. So just wondering if they're compatible with the Alexa too?

Dear Mark,

I guess compared to some more recent media you'll have a financial benefit from choosing SxS cards, cause there are a lot lying around unused. If you're looking for longer run-times, choose 128GB SxS cards then.

We've seen SxS cards being a very reliable, rugged type of media which we've supported for six years now.
We do not support XQD cards at this time.
