Icy Dock introduced a compact adapter CP130, which allows 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 their entry into free sale was not disclosed.
The CP130 adapter has dimensions of 55 x 130 x 20 mm and weighs approximately 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, making it easy to install the adapter to a DSLR camera, camcorder, tripod, or other mount. To expand mounting options, the design features a 1/4″ to 3 /8″ screw ” adapter sleeve.
No screwdriver or other tools are required to use the CP130, as a locking mechanism holds the removable drive tray in place. This simplifies the process of changing drives while interacting with the camera. The disc tray is equipped with a thermal pad to help dissipate the heat generated. In addition, the design offers an LED indicator, thanks to which the user knows when the drive is in use.
The CP130 is compatible with M.2 NVMe drives in 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 all DSLR cameras and camcorders equipped with a CFExpress Type-B interface.
Icy Dock hasn’t announced the availability and retail price of the CP130. According to the source, the cost of the adapter could be around $200.
