looks like the right model number:

Delkin Devices DDEXP34-MULTI-1 - OneCall.com


You may want to call before you order.

Ordered 3 Delkins on December 1st from Adorama and the order was just fulfilled today, 2 days later.

I wonder how many of the older Delkins were snatched up over the past as a result of this forum.

Brian,

Despite the picture, I thought that DDEXP34-MULTI-1 was the one that didn't work and that the model that works is model # DDEXP346IN11 ? Look at yesterday's post by Robert St-Onge.

The one that works is the old model that has eFilm legend on it not DD.

Understood, however I think OneCall has either the wrong picture or the wrong model number shown.

My guess is that it is the wrong picture and that you will get the one that does not work if you order it.

Yes, the one with MULTI in the model number is the one that does not work.
It appears they have a picture of the older one.

I just received an order update from Amazon.com US. The 2 cards i ordered on Nov 22nd have been shipped.

I also placed an order for 2 of the Delkins from Adorama 2 days ago. Order has been confirmed and shipped. The card manufacturer # is Mfr. Part: DDEXP346IN11.

Yesterday 2/03/08 i had the chance to use many Kensington 7 in 1 and SHAVED down Ultra 2 card in a real world scenario.

I shot a 30 commercial for DIY channel. This 2 camera shoot involved a lock off shot using the EX-1 in timelapse mode. Set @ 1 frame every 15 seconds, for 9 hours.

Both the camera and card combo worked flawlessly.

You can't go by the picture on the packaging. They may use the same packaging for both. You have to see the actual card inside. The correct card has "e-film" on it, not the "DD" logo. Here's a scan of the back of the packaging for the correct card - note the product number.

Since most sources for the Delkin have dried up - has anyone used the ebay card on the EX1? Laptop ExpressCard SD SDHC MS MMC Express Card Reader > Laptop ExpressCard SD SDHC MS MMC Express Card Reader - eBay (item 220322602498 end time Dec-06-08 19:04:34 PST)

Even Meades reported it works on EX3 with Sandisk 16gb Ultra 2's although the door doesn't quite close.

At $17.50 shipped it seems to good to be true.

Even do you think the door will close if you do the 'shave' cut?

Brian I will take several of your Kinsingtons!

I just got in 2 of the correct Delkins from Adorama today but one of them doesn't work. It records for a minute or two then up comes the error message Restore Media. I am using Transcend 16GB cards. I have a couple of the Sandisk 16GB Ultra II cards coming I might try them to see if it makes a difference.

At least I have 1 working adapter and I have a shoot on Monday.

This is not good news!

The AFT 7-in-1 works for 5 to 10 minutes in HQ then also gives the media restore errors. It seemed as if the problem was thermal related. The AFT was determined not to work.

Let's hope this was a "one off" on the Delkin. I have a couple on order myself.
Regarding the one that works. Can you run some overcrank test at 40FPS 24P and see if it fails?

I received 2 of the correct Delkins from Adorama 2 of the wrong ones from Delkin direct. I have started testing them you can not Hot Swap the adapters with the cards in them. The adapter has to be put in first , then the card if not you get a restore media error. The door does close but there is no clearance maybe .05mm. I do a lot of long shoots so if you are hot swapping the cards and opening and closing the door on the EX1 the door will sometimes hit the top of the card producing a restore error be careful. This want be a concern for me once the 32GB SanDisk SDHC cards are released.

What's the verdict with using cards other than the SXS ones, from Sony?
I have read most of the posts but man 80 pages. I have also checked out the link and the Kingston card seems out of date now.

Regards

Even Meades reported it works on EX3 with Sandisk 16gb Ultra 2's although the door doesn't quite close.

Hi Kevin, well, all I can say is they work flawlessly with my EX3.
Guy says on his page that it was a bit hit & miss with his EX1 so not sure about EX1's.
Anyway, maybe take a chance and get one to try as they are so cheap!

ps, I use Sandisk 16gb Utra 11's
