I did a bit of research and I think I am stuck but thought I would ask. I have a Mac-Book Air and the files from my 5DMKIII more a lot slower than my 1dsMKII did. I am hoping for a Thunderbolt reader but besides that I am stuck?

I have heard that different readers are faster.....also I know writing to a SD is slower but is reading? Could I transfer the data in the camera and then use the SD card to upload?

Basically I am looking for a faster way to get my images from the camera to the laptop...(MBA)

Thanks in advance!

From what I have heard there are some Thunderbolt card readers in the pipeline that maybe out later this summer. Right now the only way to do it is not cost effective, that is the Sonnet Express Card to thunderbolt adaptor and then an express card to CF adaptor. The Sonnet adaptor is $169 which for a MBA might not be a bad investment as you can then get express cards for firewire, esata, all kinds of things. http://www.sonnettech.​com …esscard34thunde​rbolt.html (external link)

I have the Lexar reader. It's very fast, but you do need a USB 3 port to benefit from it.
