Delkin Devices, Inc. announced their ruggedized, waterproof CF memory cards said to be the fastest read and write speeds in the world. The new cards are available in capacities ranging from 8GB up to 64GB and are capable of transferring pictures, video, music and more at speeds up to 685X, or 103MB/s. In addition to impressive speed performance, the cards are fully compatible with advanced HD and 3D video recording modes including slow motion recording.
"Since we launched our initial CombatFlash lineup of CF cards in 2010 we've had fantastic success among professional photographers and videographers," explains Marketing Manager, Anna Lopez. "Unlike a traditional CF memory card, the CombatFlash PCB is protected with a Tekta infusion process that enables the card to achieve phenomenal reliability and performance in environments where a normal CF card would typically fail. The card is protected from underwater submersion, solid impact, corrosion, rust & more. That reliability equals a day of production that doesn't need to be reshot, or a climb up Mount Everest that is captured reliably. It equals invaluable peace of mind."
