Pre-PMA 2004: Delkin has announced an expanded line of digital camera and camcorder batteries. Among the products is the eFilm RCR-V3 digital camera battery. Many of today’s digital cameras are powered by two or four AA batteries, or in their place one or two of the popular CR-V3 batteries. Delkin’s RCR-V3 provides a rechargeable alternative in a Lithium Ion battery. Delkin’s broad line of memory card reader/writers was expanded with the introduction of the new USB 2.0 Reader-29, the only device on the market that will read and write to Secure Digital, Mini Secure Digital, MultiMedia and Reduced Sized Multimedia without the need for an adapter.

DELKIN EXPANDS DIGITAL CAMERA BATTERY AND READER/WRITER PRODUCT LINE

Poway CA, February 9, 2004 Delkin Devices Inc., maker of premium quality eFilm memory cards and other innovative products for camera stores worldwide, today announced an expanded line of digital camera and camcorder batteries. These new products will be introduced at PMA in Las Vegas February 12 through 15 at their booth C166. Chief among the products is the eFilm RCR-V3 digital camera battery. Many of today’s digital cameras are powered by two or four AA batteries, or in their place one or two of the popular CR-V3 batteries. But the CR-V3 is expensive and like Alkaline AA batteries, is disposable and presents an environmental concern with its one time use. Delkin’s RCR-V3 provides a rechargeable alternative in a Lithium Ion battery. The RCR-V3 also offers greater power output than NiMH researchable batteries, holds a charge longer, weighs much less, and is more economical over time. Delkin Devices offers the RCR-V3 packaged with a battery charger. The RCR-V3 is also sold separately.

The Delkin eFilm line of rechargeable batteries now includes five new offerings compatible with many popular cameras. The DD/BLM-1 is made for the Olympus E-1 and C-5060 camera. The DD/LIP-10/B-9519 will work in the Sony DSC-F55K, DF-1 and other cameras. Also designed for many of Sony’s digital cameras and camcorders is the DD/NP-550, which will power the DKC-FP3, DSC-D700 and D770, MVC-CD1000 and the MVC-FD-100 models among several others. The NP-100 meets the power requirements of the Fuji DS260 and several of the MX series cameras, plus a variety of JVC, Leica, Ricoh and Toshiba cameras. Finally, the eFilm DD/NP-80 rounds out this latest battery line expansion. This battery works in the Kodak DC4800, several of the Fuji Finepix MX series and Toshiba PDR series of cameras.

Delkin’s broad line of memory card reader/writers took a big step forward with the introduction of the new USB 2.0 Reader-29, the only device on the market that will read and write to Secure Digital, Mini Secure Digital, MultiMedia and Reduced Sized Multimedia without the need for an adapter. It has a true mini-SD slot, and its blazing fast USB 2.0 capability supports rapid file transfers. Joining the Reader-29 in Delkin’s product line are a value priced USB 2.0 CompactFlash Reader/Writer (Reader-28), Secure Digital/MultiMediaCard and Memory Stick Pro multi reader/writer, rounds out the new offerings and boasts the added feature of a detachable cable.
