    Which SD Card Reader do you guy's recommend for the Pocket Camera? I come from the tape side of things and I'm not sure if there really is a huge difference between the readers themselves along with the option to format at higher speeds. Looking for a quick one at an affordable price of course.
    I've done some research but of course there are so many different opinions I figured I would ask the experts here.

    Thanks!

    Got a 5 in one USB3 reader from Transcend (around 15 bucks) works pretty well.
    Usually the SD card is your bottleneck, not the reader.

    Thanks Frank for your quick response! Unfortunately I don't think I have USB3. My Settings show "enhanced host controller 3a3a" which I think is USB2.
    Do you think something like this would be sufficient?

    USB 3.0 is backwards compatible, so if all you have is usb 2, it'll still work, just at 2.0 speeds. And if you're ever offloading to someone else's machine, you can utilize 3.0 speeds. That being said, ses, the one you linked to will work just fine also

    I've got a Lexar USB3.0 reader. Works great.
