    Be sure you have USB 3 for import. The difference is MASSIVE.

    - USB 2.0 can transfer data at 60 megabytes per second (MBps).

    - USB 3.0 can transfer data at 640 megabytes per second - OVER TEN TIMES as fast as USB 2.0

    I wouldn't be surprised if DJI ships a ThunderBolt 3 SSD reader in the future, btw. Would dramatically cut ingestion time.

    Absolutely. I agree it is way faster.

    Yup, USB 2.0 going by way of the dinosaur... I very highly doubt they will manufacture a Thunderbolt reader though... Apple is very closed off to others using their interface, you won't see it on any other camera manufacturers hardware.

    Someone needs to knock up a sata adapter for this, shouldn't be that difficult. Most PC's can hot swap sata these days and theoretical speed is in the range of 6T/sec.
