About this deal

For me, that was worth it (and my laptop does have a builtin SDHC reader of its own, so the lack of SDHC support is no problem for me). No Memory Stick XC cards were released to the market, likely due to domination of SD cards; its equivalent here is named SDXC and eventually became more successful than any other exFAT-based memory card format. The Sony a9 III is the world's first full-frame mirrorless camera to feature a global electronic shutter with simultaneous readout. Credit is provided by Novuna Personal Finance, a trading style of Mitsubishi HC Capital UK PLC, authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. Memory Stick Duos are available with the same features as the larger standard Memory Stick, available with and without high speed mode, and with and without MagicGate support.

mm (roughly one-quarter the size of the Duo) with 64 MB, 128 MB, 256 MB, 512 MB, 1 GB, 2 GB, 4 GB, 8 GB, and 16 GB capacities available. The Expresscard reader Sandisk SDAD-109, for example, will only admit Memory Stick Duo, Memory Stick PRO Duo, and Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo but none of the full-size variants.

However, as with the PRO Duo format, it has been expanded through the XC series as Memory Stick XC Micro and Memory Stick XC-HG Micro, both with the theoretical maximum capacity of 2 TB. Images recorded on a Memory Stick XC-HG Duo media and SDXC memory card cannot be imported to or played on computers or AV devices that are not compatible with exFAT when connected using a micro USB cable.

In line with the rest of the industry, the XC series uses the newer exFAT file system due to size and formatting limitations of FAT/FAT16/FAT32 filesystems used in the PRO series. In 2003, the Memory Stick PRO came out with a little more transfer speed and increased storage capacity, eventually reaching into the gigabyte range. This solution was fairly unpopular, but it did give users of older Memory Stick devices more capacity. A prime example was the development of WiFi transfers through a special Memory Stick PRO-Duo which was still in development as of 2011 [update].This Memory Stick Duo adaptor allows Memory Stick Duo media to be used in any Memory Stick Standard compatible hardware products. I've even tried this microSD MS PRO Duo Reader with the Sony Memory Stick Duo Adapter for CompactFlash Slot MSAC-MCF1N. With this adapter I can stop acquiring Memory Stick Duo's and simply use microSD cards for all my electronics devices.
