Hi, we are a storage device manufacturer! We already make a prototype of a low cost SSD to CFast / CF and more all in one solution. See you soon in the market! Welcome to ask for more information ;D

Hello guys, got this feedback from the folks at CBOX
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/648471422/rig-friendly-c-box-system-use-any-ssd-on-your-cfas

My original message

"Hello,
I've been using Magic Lantern on a Canon 5DIII for a few years now and am very happy with the results, I use the setup for professional jobs and it works very well.
Just one down side,   I would love to be able to get stable 50 to 60 Fps raw video at 1920 x 1080 but CF card speeds max out at just below 100 MBps,
this speed limit also creates a bit of a bottleneck when offloading.
Have you looked into making a product similar to yours for Compact Flash that has high transfer speeds?  If so, please let me know.
Thank you,"

and very prompt reply

"It is our understanding that the CF bus on the 5D3 is limited to around 100mb/s so even with a faster media storage option you'd likely not get better results. Clifton uses ML raw on his 5D3 frequently and he's looked thoroughly into this very issue.

It really is a great camera and the ML raw files are awesome. But without some pretty serious hardware modification, the camera likely won't perform the way you're looking for.

 
Sincerely,
 
Jayne
Atoch C2S Support"

599$?. Too expensive. I can get Blackmagic Video Assist for lower price. This records 108[email protected]

I written this already: CBOX is nothing more than overpriced two connectors and nice case. CFast is just SATA in different form-factor. They won't help you as they designed nothing, and all they are writing about possibilities and costs is just PR.

What you need here is somehow bridge CF IDE implementation with SATA drive, that requires creating some custom circuits.

Did we ever get a cf card extender to work? Can we use raspberry pi as the controller to both act as a cf card to the camera and unload it to the ssd inside a USB 3.0 enclosure attached to the raspberry pi? Pi can power the drive so we only have to worry about power to the pi.

Since when RPi has USB 3.0? And no, you can't do it.

Something I came across the other day (but probably nothing)..

The Red One CF module seems to be some kind of CF -> SSD converter?

Does it work as an UDMA-7 device emulating a CF-card?
The video lacks some information but it looks like its connected to an SATA output port and CF-Card is the storage media.
The people here are looking for the other way round.

Standard IDE-SATA adapter inside. I have similar one, identical from-factor.
And yes, it's definitely CF card -> CFast (SATA) adapter.

Hello,

So there is still no solution ?
Me too I love the raw feature of ML but I can't use it if I have to change my card every 10 minutes for 2K recording on 64Gig card (which is not cheap).
This is really what lacks this camera.

Buy a 256gb card. Use 10bit or compressed 14bit and get up to 90+ min recordings one one Card.
