Best inexpensive way to off load CF in the field
« on: July 31, 2013, 01:59:08 AM »
Hi all,
I am using the 5D III for wildlife in RAW and only have 2x 64 GB CF cards. I would like to get a device to which I can off load one card while using the other one and finish off loading in 10-15 minutes max. I know I need a good card reader with USB 3 and a device which has USB 3.
My question is whether a laptop such as this will do the trick or I should look into a more expensive one or a different device:

Thanks,
Ofer

In theory. one of these:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-Port-USB-3-0-Laptop-Notebook-34mm-PCMCIA-Express-Slot-Expansion-Add-On-Card-/121141924676

will work in any old laptop with the fitting. Kingston do a good card reader on Amazon for £20.

Define cheap, 20 bucks is pretty cheap.
