Delkin ExpressCard Reader
Delkin today released a swath of new card adapters aimed at frequent photographers. Topping the announcements are CardBus and ExpressCard 54 adapters designed for the new Ultra DMA CompactFlash standard. Each transfers data from the new flash memory as quickly as possible, peaking at 40MB per second and 33MB per second respectively. Both work in Windows PCs and will ship in April for $60, with the CardBus adapter also supporting PowerBooks using Mac OS X 10.4.8 or later.
The accessory designer also revealed today that it has begun shipping the ExpressCard 34 6-in-1 adapter for smaller card formats, including regular SD cards and the newer SDHC format, Memmory Stick and Memory Stick Pros, MMC, and xD. The adapter works in any ExpressCard slot and works with both MacBook Pros and ExpressCard-equipped Windows notebooks. It too sells for $60. [via DPReview]
