Just a few days ago, SanDisk announced a new, high-speed and high-capacity CF card for cinema work. Today sees Delkin doing the same, announcing a new line of CF 1050X UDMA 7 Cinema memory card, rated specifically for 4K video.

The cards are capable of 120MB/s write and 160MB/s read speeds, with UDMA 7 support, and VPG (Video Performance Guarantee) profiling. According to Delkin, the cards are designed to keep speeds above 100MB/s so as not to drop frames from high capacity filming:

The 1050X is approved to work in high-end cameras that support 4K UltraHD recording, such as Canon’s EOS-1D C and C500; undergoing thorough testing to ensure compatibility and flawless performance. To record footage in 4K at 24fps, the Canon 1D C requires memory cards that are UDMA 7 and have a minimum write speed of 100 MB/s. Cards with a write speed less than 100 MB/s will either drop frames during filming or stop recording. The 1050X also works on digital file recorders, like AJA’s Ki Pro Mini.

The cards are available in three capacities: 32GB, 64GB and 128GB for $139.95, $299.95, and $639.95 respectively. You can pick them up through retailers, or through Delkin directly.
