About: Sonnet SF3 Series SxS PRO X Card Reader

Supports SxS PRO X Cards at Full Speed. Superior Dual-Slot Ingest Performance

SxS™ professional memory cards are used in many past and current Sony® and ARRI® pro digital video cameras and camcorders. Sony’s latest cards—SxS PRO X—take a performance leap by offering nearly 3x the maximum read speeds over previous generation cards. While Sony Venice Cinema Camera and PXW-Z750 XDCAM exploit SxS PRO X cards’ enhanced performance capabilities, even users of compatible Sony video cameras, such as PXW-X400 and PXW-Z450, can take advantage of the cards’ read speed potential.

When it’s time to ingest footage to your computer, don’t settle on any old card reader—for the shortest ingest times, SxS PRO X cards require a card reader designed to support their maximum ingest speeds (and, for even greater efficiency, a dual-slot card reader that can ingest two cards simultaneously). Get a Sonnet SF3™ Series – SxS PRO X Card Reader; it’s the fastest tool for the job.

Designed to be Stacked and Daisy Chained

SF3 Series card readers feature rugged aluminum enclosures that are designed to be stacked and daisy chained, enabling multiple SxS PRO X, CFast™ 2.0, CFexpress™/XQD™, and RED MINI-MAG® readers to occupy the same footprint, while connecting to your computer through a single cable. You can take advantage of Thunderbolt’s up to 3000 MB/s of PCIe® 3.0 x4 bandwidth to ingest four, six or more cards simultaneously!

Thunderbolt 3 Cable and ThunderLok 3 Included

Sonnet includes a 0.5-meter Thunderbolt 3 cable that supports Thunderbolt's full 40Gbps bandwidth, and is fully compatible with Thunderbolt 4 computers. Sonnet also provides a ThunderLok 3 Thunderbolt connector retainer clip that prevents accidental cable disconnections—just slide it over one end of the cable, and then plug in the connector and secure it to the reader by turning a thumbscrew. Because of its unique design, ThunderLok remains on the cable so it won’t get lost when not in use.
