Delkin Black: SD Cards for the Action Cam Era

October 16, 2014

If your photography takes you into demanding environments, or if you’re just spectacularly clumsy, Delkin Devices’ new line of durable Black SD cards may be worth a look.

The new cards are waterproof, dust proof and capable of enduring extreme temperatures from -40 to 85 degrees C. Rather than build the cards using traditional surface mounted components and a welded case design, Delkin used a proprietary injecting molding process that they claim makes the cards “virtually unbreakable.”

To bolster their durability promise, the Black SD cards will be backed by a 48 hour “no questions asked” replacement guarantee. If your card becomes damaged or unusable, Delkin will replace it within 48 hours and send you a pre-paid shipping envelope to return the original SD card.

The Black SD cards are rated UHS-1 Speed Class 3 and will offer read speeds of 99MB/s and write speeds of 80MB/s. They’ll be available in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB capacities and sold only in brick-and-mortar camera dealers in the U.S. and Europe. Prices were not announced.
