DELKIN ADDS SD & HIGH CAPACITY GIGABYTE MEMORY CARDS TO ITS HIGH-SPEED EFILM PRO CARD 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 some major new additions to its high-speed eFilm PRO Card line. The new eFilm Secure Digital (SD) PRO Card meets todays need for speed for the new wave of video cameras and mobile camera phones requiring high-speed SD memory cards. Initial eFilm SD PRO Card capacities will be 256MB and 512MB (with SD PRO 1GB coming in Q2) and are expected to be among the fastest Secure Digital memory cards on the market. Transfer rate speeds up to 10 MB/s can be achieved. A 512MB SD PRO Card can hold approximately 4 hours and 20 minutes of MPEG4 video, 4 hours of MP3 audio (128 kbps), and 1,041 JPEG photos (standard/1600x1200 pixels).
Delkin is also increasing the storage capacities to their already popular eFilm CompactFlash (CF) PRO Cards for high-end SLR digital cameras. High-capacities of 1 and 2 Gigabytes (GB) now join the existing PRO Card capacities of 128MB, 256MB, 320MB, 512MB and the unique straight to CD-R capacity of 640MB. eFilm PRO cards are Delkins premium series of memory cards designed to quench the professional photographers thirst for speed. As digital cameras continue to evolve into sophisticated tools, Delkin has positioned the eFilm PRO card as the state of the art high-speed digital memory card. The eFilm CF PRO Cards are solid-state, and designed to be fast and durable for extensive shooting in the most extreme conditions.
The time required to capture an image has been among the main concerns with professional photographers since the birth of digital photography. The eFilm PRO Card significantly reduces capture times compared to standard consumer memory cards. To achieve this standard in quality, Delkin developed an innovative new technology called DQD (patent pending). The eFilm PRO cards are the only product on the market currently with DQD technology. DQD is a design and quality verification process that improves the performance of CF cards and is a Delkin exclusive. Innovative ideas like DQD enable Delkin to offer the best warranty in the business. All eFilm PRO cards, as well as Delkins consumer line of Digital Memory Cards, are backed with a lifetime warranty.
eFilm PRO cards are sold at independent photography stores worldwide and online at Delkins website at www.delkin.com. The MSRP for the SD PRO 512MB is $ 299.00, with the 256MB at $ 129.00. MSRP for the CF 2GB is $ 649.99 and 1GB at $ 339.00 (plus VAT in some countries). With prices on the street expected to be significantly lower, the eFilm PRO cards are among the most affordable professional grade memory cards available.
Delkins eFilm PRO cards (especially the straight to CD 640MB CompactFlash) have become the memory card of choice for many of todays most well-known and respected professional photographers. Delkin produced a 2004 calendar last year highlighting the top images taken with the PRO cards. The Images of Distinction eFilm PRO 2004 Calendar featured some of worlds most recognized photographers from the fields of nature, portrait, sports, entertainment and people photography including Douglas Kirkland, Monte Zucker, John Paul Caponigro and Arthur Morris.
