At NAB this year, Sony gave us a first look at the new SR-D1 Memory Drive Unit, which is a single-card SRMemory reader. SRMemory is extremely fast and robust, but previous card readers offered more features then most required. The SR-D1 offers a simple downloading solution for the F65 and the SR-R1 recorder. It features eSata and USB 3.0 connections for quick offloading to both Mac and PC. To use the device you only need to install a driver and then connect the reader to your computer. SRMemory will then mount like any other external hard drive or flash memory device, which greatly simplifies the F65 workflow. Those that need even faster downloads can look forward to a firmware update coming to the SR-PC4 in the fall, which will boost download speeds even more. The SR-D1 will be available soon – watch my video for more information and updates on the F65 world.
