iPad 2 Compact Flash card reader ideal for mobile videographers [Video]

As we discovered in our review of the iPad 2, the new iMovie for iPad app turns the iOS slate into quite the portable video editing studio (you can see a demo of quite how easy it is after the cut). Apple's official Camera Connector Kit will get you going with SD memory cards, but until now if you recorded to CompactFlash you were out of luck. That's all changed, however, with the new M.I.C. CF connector kit.

SanDisk ImageMate All-in-One USB 2.0 Card Reader review

SanDisk ImageMate All-in-One USB 2.0 Card Reader review

What’s the fastest card reader out there? That’s probably one of the most frequent questions, as flash storage becomes increasingly popular in everything from digital cameras to cellphones and PMPs. Of course, the answer boils down to numerous parameters such as bus medium, interface and storage. All things considered, a Firewire 800/IEEE 1394B reader with UDMA support (for CF cards) has the edge in speed, but the standard is not widely popular, especially in PC industry. Though it’s backward compatible with its lower-bandwidth sibling Firewire 400/IEEE 1394A, itself commonly found in most PCs these days, that connection will inevitably reduce the transfer rate. With that in mind, a commoditized USB-standard multimedia card reader with the fastest possible data transfer is perhaps the most straightforward choice, such as the SanDisk ImageMate All-in-One USB 2.0 Reader.
