    Hi all!

    Technology is going at a crazy speed today, and i need your enlightenment.

    Can i transfer files from a Red CF card to a Micro sd card through an iPhone?
    With a card reader like this, that is technically possible :
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07RVCM99M..._t2_B077VC79FZ

    But i'm not an iPhone guy and i don't know if IOS allows to transfer unrecognized files (or folders) from a card slot (CF) to an other (Micro sd)..
    That could really help with the 16gb Red cf card limitation.

    Thanks in advance!

    You can’t with an iPhone, but you can now with an iPad with the new iPadOS beta. I’ve been transferring files through my iPad Pro no problem. You just can’t play any .r3ds yet unfortunately. All you need is a USB-C hub to give you multiple USB ports.

    Thanks for your answer! But you are talking about unloading .R3D files to a hard drive right?
    What about transferring from a CF card to a MicroSD card with the USB-C card reader i've linked below?

    As for your technique, do i need an iPad pro or all iPad/ipad mini can do the job? Is there a particular app needed?

    Thank you!!

    Sure you could I guess I just don’t know why you would want to. SSDs are cheap, fast, and small already. MicroSD sounds like a bad idea for media to transfer footage to.

    Yes right now it’s just the native files app, to my knowledge there isn’t a robust transfer app yet like hedge or shotput. Hopefully we get something like that soon.

    Well this is great news. I'm interested in not re-upping on a laptop in the future and just going iPad Pro and owning a tower. I'm hoping we can get like a Hedge or something for iPadOS. I only ever need my machine for dumping as a backup anyway. Cole, are you doing a "finder" style transfer or are there apps already that will do verification?

    Is it fast? Cause if it is.... that’s my new offloading setup.

    With the setup mentioned above. I was able to copy a 1GB R3D (.RDC folder) to the local iPad storage in 6.5 seconds. Copying same clip to G-Tech slim SSD direct from mini-mag reader took 35 seconds (probably due to cable being used or possibly power?, took the exact same time to copy from local storage to SSD, with or without the hub). Copying the same file from mini-mag reader direct to G-tech SSD on a MBP took 25 seconds. Copying direct to the internal MBP PCIe storage took 4 seconds. Would definitely be interesting to test more of the USB-C SSD storage devices on the iPad Pro. The speeds when copying to the internal storage are pretty impressive though!

    Didn't try copying to SD card as that isn't really a setup I would ever really consider.

    The one thing iOS 13 is missing for large file transfers is a good progress bar. You will see a greyed out version of the file until it is finished copying to its location. I would love to see the people at Hedge put together a nice dedicated app and do some testing to see which external storage devices work best.

    I just tested again today on the latest iPadOS 13 beta on the latest iPad Pro and connecting up a mini-mag reader over USB-C works fine in the Files app. Very easy to transfer them to the internal iPad storage. Even copying to iCloud Drive works fine on a good connection, it transfers to internal storage and then they get uploaded just fine. There are some good USB-C hubs out there that work well with the iPad Pro if you need to charge and transfer files from a mini-mag to another external storage device and also power the device.

    Would love to see Red develop an app that allows R3D playback of some sort. I would imagine an iPad Pro is capable of playing back some R3Ds at some resolutions. Or as others mentioned maybe something like Hedge for iPad.
