Angelbird: blazingly-fast CFast and CFexpress media

Austrian manufacturer Angelbird produces some of the fastest memory cards on the planet. I personally use their 512BG AV Pro CFast 2.0 card for my RED KOMODO, since it’s officially approved by RED, and never ran into an issue.

The company also produces cards that are compatible with the CFexpress Type B standard, such as their AV Pro MK2 series, which is suitable for RED V-RAPTOR, Canon EOS R5C, and Nikon Z 9 users.
