At Professional Video we like to do business the old fashioned way, face to face and voice to voice. That goes for our customers and for the manufactures we deal with. When it comes to memory cards there are lots of brands. We could sell Sandisk like everyone else out there. Sandisk makes good cards. But we’d prefer to do business with a company that we can call on a moments notice and speak to a real human. That company is Delkin. Based in the USA Delkin makes some of the best cards out there. The Delkin cards are used by Canon’s support desk for the Cinema EOS camera line and the Delkin cards are one of the only cards qualified to work with the Blackmagic Design Pocket camera. That makes us super excited that a brand we believe in and have been selling for years also has the testing to prove they are the right choice for the professional video world. Post by Eric C. Petrie
Delkin has announced a new line of CF 1050X UDMA 7 Cinema memory card, rated specifically for 4K video. The cards are capable of 120MB/s write and 160MB/s read speeds, with UDMA 7 support, and VPG (Video Performance Guarantee) profiling. According to Delkin, the cards are designed to keep speeds above 100MB/s so as not to drop frames from high capacity filming.
The 1050X is approved to work in high-end cameras that support 4K UltraHD recording, such as Canon’s EOS-1D C and C500; undergoing thorough testing to ensure compatibility and flawless performance. To record footage in 4K at 24fps, the Canon 1D C requires memory cards that are UDMA 7 and have a minimum write speed of 100 MB/s. Cards with a write speed less than 100 MB/s will either drop frames during filming or stop recording. The 1050X also works on digital file recorders, like AJA’s Ki Pro Mini.
The cards are available in three capacities: 32GB, 64GB and 128GB for $134, $294, and $639 respectively. You can pick them up right here at Professional Video. Post by Eric C. Petrie
