SxS adapter for PMW-F5

Post by TNT_Films » January 29th, 2016, 1:33 pm

I've recently upgraded from the F3 to the F5 (4K enabled) and despite my asking the question "Can I use my MxM adapters and Lexar 150MB/sec cards with the F5"? received no answer and was forced to order to take advantage of the 0% fiance deal. For 4k, we will record onto a Pix-E5 but for day to day 2k or HD I'd like to go on using my media from the F3, especially when the two shoot together. I gather the MxM interface isn't suitable for the F5 but are there other that will? I've growled at the dealership but while I wait their opinion, I thought I'd throw it open to the real experts out there!

The only cards you can use in an F5/F55 are SxS or XQD cards with XQD-SxS adapters. Nothing else can be used.

Thanks Alister. I'm cross with the dealership for failing to address that point!

Just for your info, it seems the 2933x Lexars don't work on the F5. Sigh.
