Kingston’s new MobleLite Plus card reader is made to complement the high-speed Canvas Plus cards. It supports USB 3.2 Gen 1 speeds for even higher transfer speeds – which is essential for many of us who are working on the field. It is also especially useful since higher-quality videos tend to have higher bitrate which means larger file size, despite having the same frame rate and resolution.
