  1. I need an adapter card to use some of the new fast sd cards on my panasonic HPX300

    what do I have to do to get there and are there any real disadvantages in operating my HPX300 in that way?

    please help me learn about this.


    • hello Clay,

      I am not familiar with your model but from the specs it seems to use SD cards natively as it has an SD slot.

      Not sure why you would need an adaptor?

      Your camera will record in DVCPRO HD so can be edited in Final Cut Pro by connecting the camera direct to the computer.

      Sorry I can’t be of more help.
