With the increasing popularity of professional digital cinema cameras from Canon, ARRI and Blackmagic Design, the use of CFast 2.0 memory cards has soared, and the need for a truly high-speed card reader is undeniable. With current CFast 2.0 cards' rated read speeds near 550 MB/s, it's clear that USB readers don't fill that need. Sonnet's SF3™ Series - CFast™ 2.0 Pro Card Reader does.
