DELKIN e-FILM UDMA PRO CARDS

 

As most of you know, I have used Delkin e-Film Pro Compact Flash Cards for more than 5 years now and have found them to be fast and dependable. I have been using the Delkin the 2gb, 4gb and 8gb cards exclusively now for more than four years and have experienced only one card failure, that with a very old 2gb card. Delkin promptly replaced the card. I have not had a single 4gb or 8 gb card go bad ever.  Do remember that I take tens of thousands of images in a given year. We have joined with Delkin to ensure that we can offer you the great e-Film Pro Cards at very low prices in any quantity that you might need.  Note: Delkin cards may not be compatible with some  Minolta cameras.

       2gb Delkin e-film Pro Card: $46.48

 4gb Delkin e-film Pro Card: $79.94

8gb Delkin e-film Pro Card: $146.94

16gb Delkin e-film Pro Card: $294.94

Delkin’s Compact Flash e-film Pro Flash Cards deliver industry-leading read/write speeds.  

Please add $7.00 per order shipping and handling. Florida residents please add 7% sales tax to the cost of the cards only.

DELKIN RECHARGEABLE AA BATTERIES AND UNIVERSAL CHARGER

 

As Linda Robbins’ High Speed Flash Hummingbird Guide is (finally) nearing completion, we are beginning to add the products that folks will need.  Here are two great products for folks using either or both BP 511 batteries in their cameras or AA batteries in a single external flash unit for general bird and nature photography.

 

If you use four AA batteries in your flash and discard them after use you get to spend another $8.00 or so for four more quite often.  Switching to rechargeable AA batteries is dozens of times less expensive over the course of a year or two of photography and in addition is much, much kinder to the environment.   Delkin Extended Power Rechargeable AA Batteries are top-rated at 2900mAh.  Delkin understands that purchasing high quality batteries for your equipment is important to you, and therefore, they hold themselves to the highest standards of manufacture, service, and professionalism. Working only with highest grade materials to prevent short circuiting and to maintain a safe and accurate charge, these batteries are crafted with your safety and the safety of your flashes in mind. And all Delkin Power batteries undergo rigorous quality testing before they are sent out to the consumer.  Delkin Extended Power Rechargeable 2900 mAh AA Batteries come with a limited 2 year warranty and are 100% compatible with anything that takes AA batteries.

 

You can save a ton of money by ordering your Delkin Extended Power Rechargeable 2900 mAh AA Batteries right now from BIRDS AS ART.  I have been using these batteries for my hummingbird photography for more than a year and have found them to be both powerful and 100% reliable.

 

Delkin 2900 mAh AA Rechargeable Batteries/four pack:  $14.99 each plus $4.00 shipping per order in the U.S.  (Compatible with all Nickel Metal Hydride AA chargers.)

After having three out of four Ansmann AA battery chargers (two different models) fail within four months of purchase I decided to try the Delkin Universal Charger with AA Battery Plates.   You purchase the charger and two AA battery charging plates and you are able to charge 8 batteries quickly and efficiently.  If you use a Canon camera that uses BP-511 batteries you can purchase two plates for these batteries and charge them two at a time.

Delkin Universal Charger:  $52.99 plus $7.00 shipping to US addresses. 

AA plate (one in a pack): $9.99 each plus free shipping with the purchase of a Delkin Universal Charger.  

BP511 plates (2 in a pack):  $4.99 plus free shipping with the purchase of a Delkin Universal Charger.

Discontinued

NP-E3 Batteries

Delkin CardBus 32 Adapter UDMA

 

If you have an older computer with a PCMCIA slot, this is the reader that you need.

Now, faster than ever, this UDMA enabled CF card reader achieves transfer speeds over 45 MB/sec. (when used with the new UDMA cards)

The incredible CardBus 32 Adapter, the world's fastest card reader, was  sold out within days of its introduction in November 2003.

 

When I first heard of this product, I was quite skeptical: downloads to your laptop in one-quarter of the time than it took with a PCMCIA card reader???

 

Then I tried one and was amazed.  Downloads that had been taking me 10-12 minutes with a PCMCIA card reader now took less than 3 minutes even when the laptop was not plugged in, and closer to 2 minutes when it was plugged in.   I can download my images at lunch while waiting for service and placing orders and be editing the images and sharing them with the IPT groups while waiting for the food to come!  (Note: high transfer speeds guaranteed only with premium memory cards such as e-film Pro cards.)

 

The use of a card reader rather than an external USB or FireWire device is more elegant as there is nothing to plug in or two carry on your travels as the reader remains in the PCMCIA slot.  Serious photographers on long or overseas trips will wish to have a back-up system in place should their primary system fail.

 

Please read the specs below before ordering:

The BusCard 32 Adapter is for PC and Mac users. 

 

System requirements:

1: CD Rom or internet connection for driver installation.

2: 32-bit CardBus Type II (PCMCIA) Slot--standard on most post-1998 laptops.

3: Windows XP, 2000, ME, 98/98SE OR download Mac drivers here: http://www.delkin.com/delkin_support_drivers.html

 

We are pleased to offer the Delkin CardBus 32 Adapter for $59.99 plus $3.00 shipping = $62.99.  Shipping will be by first class mail/delivery confirm.  Florida residents please add 7% sales tax for a total of $69.19. Please make all checks out to "Arthur Morris" and send to the address below.

Delkin Fire Wire 400/800 UDMA Compact Flash Reader

NEW:  I ran across someone who was downloading their images directly from their Nikon camera because their Mac “did not have any slots.”    Yikes!  It was taking them more than 45 minutes to download a single 8gb card.  I suggested a Delkin Fire Wire 400/800 UDMA Compact Flash Reader and bingo, downloading times were reduced almost 90%.  (Transfer speed of over 45 mbs with UDMA cards.  Mac or PC.  Fire Wire 400 & 800 compatible.)   As the transfer speeds for this reader are 50% higher than for the Express Card 54 that I am currently using I plan on bringing one of the Fire Wire 400/800 UDMA Compact Flash Readers to San Diego and Bosque and will report back in early December. 

 

Each of the above adapters is available from BAA for $59.99 plus $3.00 shipping = $62.99.  Florida residents please add 7% sales tax for a total of $67.19.  To Canada please add $5 and for overseas orders, the shipping will be $9. Paypal, credit card orders by phone (863-692-0906), and checks made out to “Arthur Morris” are all wonderful. 

 

 

 
 
 
 
 
Enables you to see and inspect your camera’s sensor magnified, with focused ultra bright light. This patent-pending Delkin exclusive fits all digital SLR cameras with no adapter. The safest thing you can do is NOT clean your sensor if it doesn’t need it. Find out with SensorScope. One (1) SensorScope and two (2) CR2025 batteries included.

SENSOR SCOPE ALONE AVAILABLE

About 30 seconds after I first looked through a SensorScope, I knew that the ideal situation would be for us to be able to sell the SensorScope alone, rather than as part of a kit.  I immediately called the great folks at Delkin, Martin Wood and Alan Parry.  They agreed to make that happen and we should be receiving our first shipment of SensorScopes this week.

If you are using a Lens Pen with success as so many thousands are, but are tired of making test images to determine whether or not your sensor is clean, then you cannot live without a SensorScope, and now that it is priced to be sold as a stand-alone item, you can and should order one ASAP.  With a SensorScope in hand, it takes an average of about one minute to clean the sensor of my Canon EOS 1D MII, and I have cleaned the sensors of all other Canon cameras (as well as a few Nikon cameras) with equal success.   In the past, when I had to make test image after test image, it took me anywhere from five to thirty or more minutes to clean a sensor.  And with a SensorScope, you never have to clean your sensor when it is clean to start with, you can often get it perfectly clean, and when you do need to use your Lens Pen, you can clean only the small area with the dust spot. Since you will know exactly where the dust speck is, you can often remove it with a simple, well-placed flick of the Lens Pen…

You can order a SensorScope today for only $79.98 plus $7.00 shipping and handling in the

Until further notice - $59.98 plus $7.00 shipping

From Delkin:

The World's Most Reliable CD.

Delkin, manufacturer of quality eFilm memory cards and other innovative products, recently introduced the eFilm Archival Gold “300-Year” CD-R. eFilm Archival Gold CD-R’s incorporate patented Phthalocyanine (thalo-sy-a-neen) dye and a 24k gold reflective layer in every CD-R. The innovative materials found in eFilm Archival Gold CD-R’s make them one of the most reliable storage medium available. Typically CD-R’s are known to deteriorate quickly due to ultra violet light, heat, and humidity. Using an accelerated aging process to test the longevity of CD-R media, eFilm Archival Gold CD-R’s have been shown to safely store your images for more than 300 years.

“Consumers are now taking more pictures than ever with digital cameras,” explains Martin Wood, CEO of Delkin Devices, Inc. “Our research has indicated that the number one reason consumers take digital images is to preserve their precious memories. eFilm Archival Gold CD-R’s ensure that your precious memories are safe for years to come.” The patented Phthalocyanine dye is the most critical component of the CD-R because it is where your data is stored. Your CD burner creates pits in the dye layer when it burns a CD-R and your digital information is stored in these pits. The Phthalocyanine dye reacts quicker to the writing laser than dyes found in most CD-R’s on the market, thus making sharper pit edges and making your CD-R easier to read by CD drives. Compared to Cyanine and Azo dyes found in the majority of CD-R’s on the market, Phthalocyanine dye lasts significantly longer when subjected to the harmful effects of UV light, heat, and humidity. Gold is one of the most inert elements on earth and Delkin incorporates 20˘ of 24k gold into every eFilm Archival Gold disc. Gold’s inert characteristics prevent oxidation, a common cause of failure to most CD-Rs. Along with the Phthalocyanine dye and gold reflective layer, eFilm Archival Gold CD-R’s provide the most extreme protection for your digital images from environmental degradation.
