A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words…


Can you say rugged and dependable?

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words…. In the center of the image above is a brand new 32gb Delkin Flash card just like the ones that I use. It is flanked by the two 32 gb Delkin flash cards that I have been using for nearly 3 years now. Without failure. Without a single problem. It is not hard to understand why I use and depend on Delkin every time that I am afield (and even when I am photographing the construction of my new swimming pool!)

And on the rare occasion that a Delkin card fails it will be replaced no questions asked. No matter how old or how little paint is left on the card!

For those of you who need a few additional words:

Delkin’s UDMA 6 CompactFlash supports professional digital SLRs that can utilize its high-performance benefits but will still provide faster speed for non-UDMA digital cameras. UDMA technology, initially designed to increase the efficiency of computers, drastically lessens input and output times without hindering camera performance. Specifically, the card can receive data from the camera, where it must be initially compressed, at an impeccable rate. For photographers this means increased accuracy and the ability to process more images rapidly. UDMA also offers faster download times to a desktop or PC for the mass relocation of images. This alternative to direct-camera transfer will also prevent battery power loss and restricted camera use during transfer.

As stated, Delkin Devices is fully committed to customer satisfaction, and our memory cards are put through several rigorous quality assurance tests before being released. If you experience any difficulties or just have questions about your purchase, our US-based customer support system will provide a solution. Our team of technicians will gladly recover the accidental deletion of images completely free of charge and even retrieve files on cards that have been re-formatted or whose file system has been somehow corrupted. Proving our dedication to excellence, Delkin Devices is a member of the CompactFlash Association, guaranteeing strict adherence to the highest level of manufacturing standards.

You can purchase a Delkin card from us here or learn more about Delkin products here. If you see something there that you like we can save you a few bucks by having it drop-shipped. Please let us know via e-mail.

I was not kidding about the pool. 🙂 This is the view from just outside the French doors in my new office. The pool is 60 feet long by 12 feet wide with a 15 foot square addition for the grandkids on the left. You gotta love it.

    Re. Delkin: they also survive a cold night in a parking lot (Bosque)

    Peter is referring to the fact that I dropped a flash card in a gravel lot by the crane pools and found it the next morning at 5:45 am when it was about 9 degrees…. I have also had several Delkin cards survive the washing machine. And one spent four hours in a trash bag with discarded fat and left over fried rice at a Chinese food place near Point Pelee National Park in Leamington, Ontario Canada. It too was none the worse for wear! artie
