Delkin Devices, Inc. today announced its new UDMA enabled line of CompactFlash PRO cards is now shipping to camera stores, distributors and international channels. These new memory cards deliver industry-leading read/write speeds with a minimum sustained transfer speed capability of a blazing 305x (45Mb/sec) in all capacities of 1Gb, 2Gb, 4Gb, and 8Gb.
"This new performance increase propels Delkin to the forefront of memory card manufacturers," said Eric Richter, Delkin's Marketing Manager. "Even better, Delkin offers a complete UDMA solution for professional photographers. Besides CompactFlash cards with speeds over 45MB/sec, we offer UDMA enabled CardBus adapter and FireWire reader products now shipping, with an ExpressCard version available soon."
Photographers need not wait for the expected arrival of UDMA enabled digital camera backs and digital SLR cameras to apply the technology's benefits to their workflow process. The enhanced card-to-computer transfer times are striking, and benefit photographers in the field now. Delkin's UDMA CompactFlash Pro cards, when used with the company's CardBus adapter or FireWire reader, dramatically reduce the time needed to download digital image files to a computer. The difference may be critical for those working in the field with battery operated laptops. The application is immediate for such working pros as news, sports, and wedding photographers, but certainly any photographer working with larger RAW files will benefit.
Delkin's PRO memory card line combines high speed and high capacity with reliability. 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 cards are $79.99 (around £40) for 1Gb, $109.99 (around £55) for 2Gb, $179.99 (around £90) for 4Gb, and $299.99 (around £15) for 8Gb.
