Icy Dock has introduced a compact CP130 adapter that will allow you to use high-performance M.2 NVMe solid-state drives in digital SLR cameras (DSLR) by connecting via the CFExpress interface. Information about the cost of new items and the timing of its entry into free sale was not announced.
The CP130 adapter has dimensions of 55 x 130 x 20 mm and weighs about 300 g. The device is made of durable plastic. The adapter can be used with any modern DSLR on the market. The design includes a 1/4″ screw, due to which the adapter can be easily installed on a DSLR camera, video camera, tripod or other bracket. To expand the mounting options, the design provides a 1/4″ to 3/8″ adapter sleeve.
No screwdriver or other tools are required to use the CP130 as a locking mechanism holds the removable drive tray in place. Due to this, the process of changing the drive during interaction with the camera is simplified. The drive tray is equipped with a thermal pad to help dissipate the generated heat. In addition to this, the design provides LED indication, thanks to which the user will know when the drive is being used.
The CP130 is compatible with M.2 NVMe drives in the 2230, 2242, 2260, 2280, and 22110 form factors. CFExpress connectivity provides a PCIe 3.0 x2 equivalent connection with transfer rates up to 2GB/s. According to the manufacturer, the CP130 adapter is compatible with Canon EOS R3, R5, 1DX, C300 Mark II and C500 Mark II, Nikon Z9, Z7II, D500 and D850 cameras, as well as Fujifilm X-H2S and Panasonic Lumix GH6. It is also noted that the adapter should work with any DSLR cameras and camcorders equipped with a CFExpress Type-B interface.
Icy Dock did not disclose the availability and retail price of the CP130. According to the source, the cost of the adapter could be about $200.
