Delkin: 305x, 16GB CF Card is
Delkin today announced a 16GB UDMA-enabled Compact Flash card with a claimed write speed of 305x (45MB/sec sustained transfer speed). The previous record is 300x, so Delkin's "world's fastest" claim is just barely so. The company says the new card is the world's fastest CF card and is ideally suited for optimizing the fast write speeds of high-end DSLRs such as the Canon 1Ds Mark III and Niko D3x and D300. The card lists for $399.99.
Delkin Devices Offers World's Fastest 16-GB UDMA CompactFlash Card
POWAY, Calif. -- Delkin Devices, Inc. today expanded the outer limits of CompactFlash card storage capacity and speed for digital cameras by announcing its 16-GB UDMA enabled CompactFlash PRO card. This latest addition to Delkin's CompactFlash PRO line boosts screaming fast read/write speeds-up to 305x (45-MB/sec sustained transfer speed capability). Now photographers using UDMA enabled cameras such as the Canon 1Ds Mark III, Nikon D300 and Nikon D3x have a memory card that can maximize the full benefits of their camera investment.
"Delkin confirms its commitment to continuing leadership in speed, capacity and reliability of memory cards with this new expansion to our PRO memory card line," said Eric Richter, Delkin's Marketing Manager. "What's more, Delkin's complete UDMA solution for professional photographers is unmatched by any other manufacturer. Besides our CompactFlash PRO cards, we offer UDMA enabled ExpressCard and CardBus adapters and a FireWire reader for the fastest download speeds to the computer. That's critical for such working pros as news, sports and wedding photographers, but any photographer working with larger Raw files will benefit."
Photographers without UDMA enabled digital cameras and camera backs can apply the technology's benefits to their workflow process right away. The enhanced card-to-computer transfer times are striking. Delkin's UDMA CompactFlash Pro cards, when used with the company's UDMA enabled FireWire reader and adapters, dramatically reduce the time needed to download digital image files to a computer. The difference may be crucial for those working in the field with battery operated laptops.
Delkin's PRO memory card line combines high speed and high capacity with reliability. This is accomplished by using high grade SLC NAND flash products, advanced controller design and quality control guidelines based on ISO:9001 standards. The company has supported Lifetime warranties on its memory products for over 20 years, while maintaining its place at the cutting edge of performance. The MSRP for the 16-GB card is $399.99.
