Version 2.0 compliant and with speeds that should satisfy both pro photographers and videographers, the new Premium XQD from Delkin is specially designed to shine in the latest generation of high-end cameras from both Sony and Nikon.

Each of the new XQD card versions has undergone testing to make sure that full functionality and performance in these, high-end XQD cameras, is assured. These include the Nikon D5, D500 and D850, as well as several of Sony’s XDCAM Super 35 broadcast camcorders [e.g. PXW-FS7 and PXW-FS7M2].

In what appears to be a unique, [not to mention, impressive] offering; the Delkin XQD memory cards and others from the brand displaying the ‘48HR logo‘ come with a premium 48-hour replacement guarantee in addition to their brilliant ‘Lifetime Warranty‘ policy. They will replace any non-working card within 48 hours or less [not including weekends], prior to receiving any non-working card.
