Lexar launches Professional CFexpress Type B USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Reader
For many home consumers, when they need to access files from their camera's memory card, they just insert it into the reader on their computer. This is typically an SD card reader, although many newer computers are doing away with card readers entirely. Instead, you are expected to purchase a USB reader -- they are plentiful on sites like Amazon and very inexpensive too.
But what if you are a professional photographer? Well, then -- you might not be using SD card at all. Instead, you could be using CFexpress. Popular company Lexar has a new CFexpress Type B card reader that is sure to excite professional photographers. The all-new Professional CFexpress Type B USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Reader connects using USB-C, but it also comes with a USB-A cable in the box. Best of all, it is quite fast -- it can read cards at speeds up to 1,700MB/s.
"The Professional CFexpress Type B USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Reader offloads a tremendous number of high-quality images and RAW 8K video from your CFexpress Type B card to your computer at USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 speeds, supercharging your workflow from location to post-production. This professional-level reader includes both a 2-in-1 USB Type-C to USB Type-A cable and USB Type-C to USB Type-C cable for seamless port-to-port connection with your laptop or PC, and its compact and portable design allows you to quickly slip the reader into your pocket and go," says Lexar.
