Hoodman built the new reader into a ruggedized metal housing and added a new concept to readers called “Pin Guard”. Pin Guard is an innovative drop down door that keeps reader pins protected until a CompactFlash card is inserted into the reader. The well thought out detachable 36-inch USB 3.0 cable is plenty long enough to reach behind towers and still find a home on a desktop. Reinforced cable inputs, metal housing and “Pin Guard” all work together to yield the most durable card reader made.
*5Gbps transfer rates require a USB 3.0 enabled computer.
*RAW STEEL reader is backward compatible with USB 2.0 systems.
