Kondor Blue has released a new PRO-BLADE SSD handle that makes recording from a camera’s USB-C output to an SSD drive much easier and more efficient. In this video from Video Brand, Hoby from Kondor Blue provides a detailed overview of the product and its features.

The PRO-BLADE NVMe drives fit seamlessly into the handle, providing up to 1000 megabytes per second read and write speeds, ensuring no data cap or compression issues when recording Blackmagic RAW. The handle is equipped with a USB-C connection that has built-in protection to keep the data secure.

The handle features a NATO rail on the front and bottom, providing users with plenty of adjustability when mounting. The front rail is compatible with their NATO-to-NATO monitor mount for easy and quick functionality with monitor mounting. The handle can also be used as a side handle, allowing for versatility in use.

The handle can be purchased by itself or as a kit with the SSD included. The SSDs come in sizes ranging from 1 to 4 terabytes. Prices for the handle without a drive are expected to be around $100.

The handle comes with NATO rail connections, making it compatible with several different cages. Kondor Blue’s website provides more information on their products, including the PRO-BLADE SSD handle.
