Delkin Devices, Inc., has introduced inkjet printable versions of its popular
eFilm Archival Gold "300-Year" CD-R. The advent of good quality, inexpensive
consumer printers such as Epson's Stylus Photo R200, R300, R320 and others
drive more and more people to look for CD-Rs they can print their own designs
on. eFilm Inkjet Archival Gold CD-R's incorporate patented Phthalocyanine (thalo-sy-a-neen)
dye and a 24k gold reflective layer into every CD-R. The innovative materials
found in eFilm Inkjet Archival Gold CD-R's make them among the most reliable
storage media available. Results of an accelerated aging process used to test
the longevity of CD-R media show eFilm Inkjet Archival Gold CD-R's may safely
store images for more than 300 years.

The 8GB SanDisk Ultra II CompactFlash card satisfies the need of those using
high-megapixel digital SLRs, those producing large files with every shot. Ultra
II cards offer a minimum sustained write speed of 9MB/sec and a read speed of
10MB/sec. SanDisk also produces their Extreme III CompactFlash lineup, which
has about double the read/write speed, but because the Extreme III uses a different
type of NAND flash memory the maximum capacity of that lineup is 4GB. In tests
with a variety of digital SLRs the Ultra II performed flawlessly, and it sure
was handy having that amount of memory on trips where lots of images were made
during the day's shoot. For Raw images with an 8MP camera we could get
almost 600 images on a card. Retail price for the 8GB card is $999.99, about
what a 1GB CompactFlash card cost three years ago.

Those seeking secure memory cards will be interested in Lexar's LockTight
cards and reader. The system encrypts login access to the LockTight card, but
not the file data. This means that the full 80X speed of the card is available.
Lexar says that the card cannot be accessed on any camera other than an authorized
LockTight camera or any computer that lacks the LockTight access and a correct
username and password. The system is comprised of four components: the LockTight
CompactFlash card (512MB or 2GB); a Lexar Professional CompcatFlash reader;
a LockTight enable camera; and the LockTight Admin and Access software. The
system has been designed to have what the company calls "zero impact"
on production workflow and requires only one-screen access.
