Proof #3: Nikon D3x leak from Delkin

Is this the third proof for the upcoming Nikon D3x or another typo (see proof #1 from SanDisk and proof #2 from Adorama)? It smells like a proof to me. Why would three different, independent companies make the same typo with the same letter x?

Here is the official press release (I am sure it will be corrected very soon after this post):

Delkin Devices Offers World’s Fastest 16GB UDMA CompactFlash Card

December 6, 2007

Poway, CA. December 3, 2007 – Delkin Devices, Inc. today expanded the outer limits of CompactFlash card storage capacity and speed for digital cameras by announcing its 16GB UDMA enabled CompactFlash PRO card. This latest addition to Delkin’s Compact Flash PRO line boosts screaming fast read/write speeds—up to 305x (45MB/sec sustained transfer speed capability). Now photographers using UDMA enabled cameras such as the Canon 1Ds Mark III, Nikon D300 and Nikon D3X have a memory card that can maximize the full benefits of their camera investment.

“Delkin confirms its commitment to continuing leadership in speed, capacity and reliability of memory cards with this new expansion to our PRO memory card line,” said Eric Richter, Delkin’s Marketing Manager. “What’s more, Delkin’s complete UDMA solution for professional photographers is unmatched by any other manufacturer. Besides our CompactFlash PRO cards, we offer UDMA enabled ExpressCard and CardBus adapters, and a FireWire reader for the fastest download speeds to the computer. That’s critical for such working pros as news, sports, and wedding photographers, but any photographer working with larger RAW files will benefit.”

Photographers without UDMA enabled digital cameras and camera backs can apply the technology’s benefits to their workflow process right away. The enhanced card-to-computer transfer times are striking. Delkin’s UDMA CompactFlash Pro cards, when used with the company’s UDMA enabled FireWire reader and adapters, dramatically reduce the time needed to download digital image files to a computer. The difference may be crucial for those working in the field with battery operated laptops.

Delkin’s PRO memory card line combines high speed and high capacity with reliability. This is accomplished by using high grade SLC NAND flash products, advanced controller design, and quality control guidelines based on ISO:9001 standards. The company has supported Lifetime warranties on its memory products for over 20 years, while maintaining its place at the cutting edge of performance. The MSRP for the 16GB card is $399.99. Delkin’s PRO line of memory cards and other innovative digital camera accessories may be found in camera stores and distributors worldwide, as well as the company’s website at
