  • SDHC card reader?

    My camera uses SDHC cards and it seems to take a long time to transfer video files to my system.

    Can someone recommend a high speed card reader? Mine is USB 2. My system has USB 3.

    I just received this Iogear reader but haven't had a chance to use it yet.

    I have USB 3.0 and a good number of photos that I need to read off of it.

        You'll get the best transfer speeds using USB 3.0 and a UHS-1 compatible SDHC card and card reader like the Transcend TS-RDF8K.

        There are even faster UHS-2 cards and card readers available from Panasonic in the Micro P2 line, but they are expensive.

          I have a low cost LANTEC USB 3.0 reader and use Patriot 64G SDHX UHS-1 Class 10 cards in my NX5U , NX30U and CX700. Transfer speed to my PC for a 2 hour show is about 6 mins per camera. For comparison the internal memory of the NX30U or CX700 connected to PC USB takes over 30 mins and the FMU128 from my NX5U takes about 8 or 9 mins for the same file sizes.

            Yes, using cards with 95 MB/s read speed over USB 3 is amazing.

            64GB cards with 6 hours of footage take less than 1/2 hour (26 MINUTES actually). My, how times have changed!

            Cheers,

                I just ordered two different brands of USB 3 cardreaders off Amazon. One internal and one external. Will let you know how they perform.

                  Did a show last evening of 2 hours 25 mins with NX5U, NX30U and CX700 . Transfer from the cards took about 8 mins 30 sec each, backup and compare to LTO3 data tape took 48 mins. So in just over an hour I had transferred and backed up 7 hours of video. Even as a hobby I am glad I do not use video tape any more !!! No tape changing, no battery changing just stopped for the intermission and had a drink !!!
