Card readers are a simple necessity, and their role in the photographic workflow is understated. Essentially insert your memory card, copy the contents to your computer or storage device, and that’s it.
The Pergear CFE-B Card Reader does exactly that, with speed and reliability.
As is becoming more common with card readers, the Pergear CFE-B Card Reader features a single card slot for a CFexpress type-B. Connection to a computer is provided through a USB Type-C port which is backwards compatible with older USB formats.
The aluminium alloy casing gives the small (72 x 50 x 10mm) reader a bit of weight, tipping the scales at 80g. It also means that it’s perfectly suited to be thrown into a kit bag and will stand up to a knock or two. A nice touch is a rubberised base that means it happily stays put when you have it resting on your leg or laptop during the download process.
