Sony SD/SDHC: the other shoe.

Following Sony's announcement of a line of SD/SDHC cards, it isn't a big surprise that they announced new consumer camcorders some of which include a hybrid memory card slot—compatible with both Sony brand Memory Stick PRO Duo cards and the more standard SD/SDHC cards.

The hybrid memory card slot explains how the HXR-NX5U, also announced yesterday, supports both Memory Stick and SD/SDHC cards (something I had been puzzling about.)

I still don't completely understand why the HDR-AX2000 didn't get the same slot as well, but maybe someone will ask Sony at CES.
