Delkin Black: Rugged and Ready to Go

  By Kaitlyn Kerr

I’ve never been one to be gentle on my gear. Sometimes it’s in pursuit of “the shot,” sometimes it’s just pure clumsiness. I’ve slid down muddy mountains, dunked my gear in rivers, dodged spilled drinks at bar shows. I’ve knocked lenses to the floor and put pocketed memory cards through the washing machine countless times. I need my gear to keep up. With digital photography, ensuring that your files are safe is a top priority, and that starts with a dependable memory card. Delkin Black cards are incredibly rugged, and fast enough to keep up with the ever-increasing demands of today’s cameras.

Need for Speed

It doesn’t matter if I’m shooting high-speed action at events, or wildlife bounding out of the forest in the backwoods, my card needs to keep up. If I’m trying out a new camera with file sizes larger than I realistically know what to do with, my card needs to keep up. If I’m messing around with high-speed 4K video (that I really don’t know what to do with), my card needs to keep up. The Delkin Black lineup is designed to be top-notch, with UHS-II V60 cards to keep up with the most demanding situations you put yourself in, so that you don’t miss the shot.

Rugged, Guaranteed

I love to travel and shoot in any conditions, from frigid Alberta winters to humid rainforests in Costa Rica. I also seem to love to forget memory cards in my pockets about 90% of the time when throwing them in the wash. With Delkin Black cards, the “brains” of the card are preserved within a solid housing due to a specialized casting method, which makes them essentially waterproof, even if submerged for 72 hours. It also makes them able to withstand up to 45 lbs of impact. They’re designed to function from -25°C up to 85°C heat, meaning I can take them anywhere. Should a card fail, Delkin will guarantee it, no questions asked, and will provide a replacement.
