Nicely timed to coincide with the launch of the Nikon Z series cameras Delkin has announced its own line of premium XQD cards that come with a 48hr replacement service. The new cards run with write speeds of up to 400MB/s, in line with units sold by Sony, and are designed to complement camera models from both Nikon and Sony.

With read/write speeds and capacities aimed at intensive data rate products, the cards are suited to recording high-resolution images in high burst modes, and professional quality video.

The company is so confident of its quality control each card has its own serial number and lifetime warranty. Delkin also promises that should a card fail it will replace it within 48 hours. Obviously, terms and conditions apply, but it sounds a neat way to differentiate its cards from those already on the market.

Delkin says its Premium 2933X cards will become available in October.

64GB - $140/£190
120GB - $230/£290
240GB - $464/£580

Delkin Launches New Line of Premium XQD Memory Cards

POWAY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Delkin Devices, a manufacturer of flash storage solutions and camera accessories, announced today the newest addition to their ever-growing line of memory-based products: Premium 2933X XQD memory cards. Version 2.0 compliant with speeds suitable for professional photographers and videographers, Delkin XQD cards are specifically designed to excel in the latest generation of cinematic hosts from both Sony & Nikon. As not all memory manufacturers are authorized to produce and sell XQD, Delkin is grateful for the opportunity to provide consumers another choice.

Utilizing a 2nd generation PCI Express interface and delivering blazing-fast write speeds up to 400MB/s (up to 440MB/s read speeds), Delkin Premium XQD memory cards are capable of capturing flawless cinema-quality footage, including DCI 4K & Full HD video at 180 fps, as well as RAW photos in burst mode. Each card has undergone extensive testing to ensure compatibility in today’s high-end XQD hosts, including the Nikon D5, D500 & D850, as well as several of Sony’s XDCAM Super 35 broadcast camcorders (PXW-FS7 & PXW-FS7M2).

As proof that Delkin’s XQD cards are built to the highest standard and full compatibility, each card is serialized, like your camera. This allows Delkin to offer the ultimate level of customer support, while providing customers additional protection and insurance for their purchase. Owners can register their Delkin Premium XQD cards at www.delkindevices.com/xqd/.

In addition to their “Lifetime Warranty” policy, Delkin also offers a unique built-in insurance policy for their XQD memory cards, called their “48 Hour, No-Questions-Asked Replacement Guarantee.” Not offered anywhere else in the world, Delkin will replace any non-working XQD card within 48 hours or less (not including weekends), prior to receiving your non-working card. Cards can also be replaced over-the-counter at any authorized Delkin XQD reseller.
