PMA 2010 Report
Delkin expanded their line-up of Compact Flash card storage by announcing four new blazing fast Delkin 420X PRO memory cards capable of transfer speeds up to 63MB/s. The new UDMA enabled flash memory cards comes with a remarkable San Diego based customer service team as well as a lifetime warranty, and is available in capacities of 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. For a working photographer, the reliability and service support behind a memory card can be just as crucial, if not more so, than the digital camera itself.
We also spotted Delkin's Sensor-scope system at the PMA 2009. The cleaning set for DSLR image sensors, awarded with various Awards, has been enhanced since the last Photokina 2008, with support for three sizes of sensors: 24mm, 20mm, and 16mm sensors. I must admit I have not tried out the set personally, but colleagues that have are all very enthusiast about this (rather pricey) cleaning system. I fear the Sensorscope system will not remain a sales hit much longer, since gradually more and more digital SLR cameras are appearing on the market with a built-in anti-dust system. An expensive solution such as offered by Delkin will become unnecessary.
Delkin Devices announced the new Snug-It digital camera skins. These attractive camera skins take protection far beyond the competition. Snug-Its incorporate a revolutionary new design feature. Intricate molding results in flexible silicone petals that protect the lens itself. Other skins only have a cutout to allow the lens to expand and retract - the exclusive Snug-It lens petals open and close over the lens as it moves in and out. No other camera skin offers protection this complete. Snug-It skins are custom molded, ensuring a perfect fit and full functionality for every camera model. All controls are molded into the skin, which makes using the camera simple.
