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, A1 and A7S III.
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.
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.
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.
