View Full Version : NEED Red Station Compact Flash
04-04-2011, 03:29 PM
Anybody got a RED STATION COMPACT FLASH I could rent for a 5-week low-budget feature?
Just got the gig, prepping this week and RED Store lists them as "Backordered," so who knows when one would be available.

If you can't get one, I'd suggest as alternatives:
Using a laptop:
Lexar Professional ExpressCard™ CF Reader (http://lexar.com/products/lexar-professional-expresscard-compactflash-cf-reader?category=203)
SanDisk ExtremeŽ Pro™ ExpressCard™ Adapter (http://sandisk.com/products/readers-accessories/sandisk-extreme-pro-expresscard-adapter)
Using a tower:
SanDisk ExtremeŽ FireWire Reader (http://sandisk.com/products/readers-accessories/sandisk-extreme-firewire-reader)
And if you can fine one still in stock now that it has been discontinued:
Lexar Professional UDMA FireWire 800 CompactFlash Card Reader (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/492648-REG/Lexar_RW034_001_Professional_UDMA_FireWire_800.htm l)

Thanks Stephen, I already have the FW reader from SanDisk, but the speed is always slow, hoping the eSATA of the RED STATION will speed things up a bit.
Vlad I'll call you today.
