Delkin Devices has announced a new range of CFexpress Type A memory cards. Not to be confused with the more common Type B format, the smaller Type A cards are used in select Sony cameras like the A7 IV (opens in new tab), A1 (opens in new tab) and A7S III (opens in new tab).
Until recently, only Sony produced Type A cards, with fittingly exclusive pricing. But since then ProGrade Digital has entered the Type A market, and now Delkin is launching its own Type A offerings.(opens in new tab)
Its new 8K-ready BLACK-series CFexpress Type A cards are available in 80GB or 160GB capacities, boasting 880MB/s read speeds and a maximum 790MB/s write rate - comfortably fast enough to enable 8K 30fps recording with the Sony a1.
The cards are also speedy enough to support high-res RAW continuous shooting without slowdowns, and each BLACK CFexpress Type A memory card 'has undergone extensive testing to ensure full functionality and performance in today’s high-end cinematic hosts, including the Sony a1, a7S III, a7 IV, FX3 & FX6.'
Delkin's BLACK CFexpress Type A cards are backed up by a unique serial identification number, as well as a lifetime warranty with 48-hour Replacement Guarantee, whereby Delkin will swap out any non-working BLACK card within 48 hours or less (not including weekends, and only in the US and UK), prior to receiving the non-working card. Cards can also be replaced over-the-counter at any authorized Delkin BLACK reseller.(opens in new tab)
In addition to the BLACK line-up of Type A cards, Delkin is also launching a POWER range. These cards are identical to BLACK cards in terms of capacity and performance, but don't benefit from serialization or Delkin's 48-hour Replacement Guarantee.
The Delkin Devices CFexpress Type A Black cards will cost $195.99 for the 80GB version, and $364.99 for the 160GB.
The Power version of the cards will cost $184.99 for the 80GB version, and $349.99 for the 160GB.
Delkin will also be releasing a two-in-one CFexpress Type A and SDXC UHS-II card reader which will retail for $79.99.
