Delkin press release:
Delkin Ships Fastest CF Memory Card in the World.
Poway, CA. August 24, 2011 – Today Delkin Devices, Inc. announced their much anticipated ruggedized waterproof CF memory cards boasting the fastest read and write speeds in the world. The new cards are available in capacities ranging from 8GB up to 64GB and are capable of transferring pictures, video, music and more at speeds up to 685X, or 103MB/s. In addition to impressive speed performance, the cards are fully compatible with advanced HD and 3D video recording modes including slow motion recording.
“Since we launched our initial CombatFlash lineup of CF cards in 2010 we’ve had fantastic success among professional photographers and videographers,” explains Marketing Manager, Anna Lopez. “Unlike a traditional CF memory card, the CombatFlash PCB is protected with a Tekta infusion process that enables the card to achieve phenomenal reliability and performance in environments where a normal CF card would typically fail. The card is protected from underwater submersion, solid impact, corrosion, rust & more. That reliability equals a day of production that doesn’t need to be reshot, or a climb up Mount Everest that is captured reliably. It equals invaluable peace of mind.”
The new CombatFlash685 card includes the same ruggedized qualities as it’s 625X predecessor, but adds more than 10MB/s in speed performance and the ability to shoot in over cranking mode (or slow motion recording) with Canon’s XF series HD camcorders, including the trending XF305, XF300, XF105 and XF100 models.
Lopez states, “Sophisticated cinema recording applications like Slow & Fast Motion and HD infrared capabilities are increasingly being utilized on a regular basis. Delkin’s US engineering staff is consistently heightening their standards to not only keep up with the evolving equipment, but to also anticipate future breakthroughs that will require exceedingly fast and high quality memory.”
Delkin’s CombatFlash memory remains the only consumer flash storage brand built to comply with MIL-STD-810 specification. Extreme environmental testing has rated the CombatFlash CF line to remain fully operable anywhere between 0°C to 70°C, while soldered and sealed internal components and advanced wear leveling & error correction features manage data continuously to ensure data integrity and card longevity.
CombatFlash685 CF memory is supported by Delkin’s trusted lifetime warranty and U.S. based support center, available by phone on working days between 8am-5pm PST. This innovative product, along with Delkin’s complete lineup of imaging accessories, can be found at digital camera retailers worldwide, as well as direct from for retail prices ranging from $149.99 for an 8GB card to $899.99 for a 64GB card. CombatFlash 625X memory is also available for purchase for a limited time, with 4-16GB capacities retailing from $79.99–$229.99.

Breaking News: I'm sitting at my desk in central Pennsylvania with 6" of concrete under me. The concrete just rippled enough to very noticeably shake my heavy glass and steel desk. Fortunately there appears to be no damage here.
I was on the phone with my Adorama rep at the time and conveyed to him what was happening. He was in disbelief until moments later it hit New York City also. Twitter is alive with the news.

Rob asked me to share his Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L USM Fisheye Lens Cap modifcation with you:
Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L USM Fisheye Lens Cap Modifcation
" ... I modified the lens cap of the 8-15 4.0L fisheye lens with two small pieces of Velcro (only the soft part). The result is very satisfying! The lens cap won’t fall of anymore even when one presses one or both clips." (thanks Rob)
Rob modified his original Canon EF 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye Lens cap in a similar way - using much more velcro for that mod.

Some of you have expressed the desire to have the complete site index shown at the bottom of all pages as it had been. This feature is now optional.
I added a small on/off icon (Show complete site index at bottom of page) beside the "Site Index" menu option on the navigation bar at the bottom of each page. Clicking on this icon toggles the bottom-of-the-page site index on and off. The sample image just shown is live - it will enable the index.
The site should then remember your choice on all pages except the home page, which does not include this feature (due to technical difficulties).
