Sonnet SF3 Series – RED MINI-MAG Pro Card Reader – Thunderbolt 3


When you shoot on RED, chances are your footage is captured to RED MINI-MAG® media, known for their quality and durability.

The Sonnet SF3™ Series – RED MINI-MAG Pro Card Reader is the ultimate tool for the job.

Featuring a dual-port, 40Gbps Thunderbolt™ 3 interface, this RED APPROVED reader ingests footage from RED MINI-MAG memory cards to any Mac®, Windows®, or Linux® computer with Thunderbolt 3 ports—on location, in the studio, or in the edit suite—at the fastest speeds the cards will support.
