Press Release:

Delkin Introduces Two New ExpressCard Adapters: The eFilm ExpressCard 54 UDMA Enabled CF Adapter and the ExpressCard 34 6 in 1 Adapter.

March 7, 2007: Delkin Devices today announced their new eFilm ExpressCard 54 mm adapter and the eFilm ExpressCard 34 mm 6 in 1 adapter. The ExpressCard 54 CF adapter is the first UDMA enabled ExpressCard adapter which allows lightning fast image transfer for photographers to their laptops. The ExpressCard 34 6 in 1 adapter offers ultra-fast transfer speeds from Secure Digital and SDHC memory cards, and others. These two adapters along with their eFilm ExpressCard 34 CF adapter announced last year give Delkin the most complete line of ExpressCard memory card adapters in the world. The new UDMA enabled eFilm ExpressCard 54 CF adapter delivers blazing high speed transfer rates of up to 33MB/s. These speeds are made possible with CF cards incorporating UDMA (Ultra Direct Memory Access) technology. The ExpressCard 54 CF adapter is also compatible with non-UDMA CF (type I and II) cards and Microdrives. The eFilm CompactFlash ExpressCard 54 MSRP will be $59.99, with shipments commencing in early April, 2007.

Delkin began shipping the versatile 6 in 1 eFilm ExpressCard 34 adapter earlier this month. The 6 in 1 works in both 34 mm and 54 mm slots, and supports Secure Digital, SDHC, MMC, MS, MS Pro, and the xD card. The eFilm ExpressCard 6 in 1 adapter MSRP is $59.99, and is available for immediate delivery."Laptops are a key component in the workflow of many photographers," said Eric Richter, Delkin's Marketing Manager. "Our goal is to provide photographers with the fastest and easiest way to transfer images to their workstation and our ExpressCard adapter line does that."

ExpressCard is the newest standard from the PCMCIA Organization. Computer manufacturers began incorporating ExpressCard in laptops in early 2006. The ExpressCard provides faster performance and smaller form factor than CardBus and PC Cards. All Delkin eFilm ExpressCard adapters are RoHS compliant and are conveniently provided with Plug-and-Play (no drivers required) and Hot Swappable capabilities. The eFilm ExpressCard 34 series works with both Mac and PC computers, and carry a limited two year warranty. The eFilm ExpressCard 54 CF adapter only fits into PCs with 54 mm ExpressCard slots.
