To further increase the security, a loop has been implemented, allowing the silicon case to be hooked to camera cases and even lanyards, assuring you won't lose it. Total weight of only 14 grams makes the Scythe CF-Reader the best choice for portable usage. Total dimensions of 26 x 75 x 10,8 Millimeter underline this statement furthermore.
