This may be the year of the 4K-compatible CompactFlash card, the latest coming from Delkin. The new 1050X UDMA 7 Delkin Cinema card targets videographers, particularly those shooting 4K on DSLRs such as the Canon EOS-1DC and C500. This is Delkin’s fastest card to date, featuring write speeds of up to 120MB/s and read speeds up to 160MB/s.
As Delkin explains, the Canon EOS-1DC, for example, requires UDMA 7 cards with a minimum write speed of 100MB/s in order to record 4K footage at 24 frames per second without dropping frames or stopping recording.
The 1050X is also compatible with digital file recorders such as AJA’s Ki Pro Mini.
Delkin’s CF Cinema cards are available now in three capacities: 32GB, 64GB and 128GB.
