The CR-5300 in action - Image 1

Tipster Hitori Futari is back with more info, more pictures, and more booth babes for you to look at. He got wind of the popularity of the previous post we had about the PSP memory card adapter, so he decided to go back to the Photofast booth to, as he put it, “pump them for more information and updates.” Luckily, in addition to the picture he himself took, the Photofast people actually gave him their press kit, the pictures of which are viewable below.

According to Hitori Futari, the CR-3100 and CR-5300 memory adapters are planned for mid-July, though pricing info hasn’t been decided on yet. The adapters themselves are still undergoing testing and design changes, so the final look of the CR-3100 may change depending on how that goes. As for the mounted adapter, our intrepid tipster also mentions that “there’s a thin umbilical cable connecting the mounted adapter with the PSP memory slot. It’s not implemented on the prototype and almost not visible on the prints.”

For those wondering about MagicGate compatibility, Hitori Futari also had this to say: “MagicGate works because these are just adapters. It depends only on whether the inserted SDHCs feature MagicGate or not.”

Additional tech was also taken care of by Hitori Futari. He cited Photofast’s largest Compact Flash Card, the Extreme Pro 333x (45MB/s), which has 32 GB of capacity, with a 64 GB version soon to be released. Photofast also has a 128 GB capacity SSD Drive, as well as a handy (though probably overkill) 80-in-1 card reader (20 MB/s).

HItori Futari’s pictures, as well as the press kit shots, can be found below. We’ll do our best to keep you updated on this intriguing development in the scene, so keep checking QJ for updates.


UPDATE:

Hitori Futari sent us an email to clarify some stuff about the pictures and give an update. The device shown inside the PSP in the picture above is the single-slot CR-5300 memory adapter, which is actually already on sale. There weren’t any of the dual-slot CR-5400s on display, unfortunately, and those are the ones (instead of the CR-5300) he was actually referring to in the release date portion above.

Speaking of release dates, it seems a contact Hitori Futari made at the event emailed him to let him know that the CR-5400 MS Pro Dual Slot adapter will be on sale (for the Japanese market, at least) by the end of June. If you know anyone who’ll be in Japan in the coming months, you may want to ask them for a favor, because the dual slot adaptor is looking like it’ll be a hot commodity when it comes out.
