Default What's the max CF card size that will work with Nikon CP990?

I've heard that the CoolPix line uses a FAT16 directory system and will not be able to handle storage greater than 2 GB. I have a time lapse application where I need the highest possible storage capacity. Before I shell out $1000 for one of these 2GB or 4GB cards, does anyone know whether they will work with a Coolpix 990?

Although 1, 2, and 4 GB CF cards have been announced, I have not seen any info on whether these hyper capacity cards will work with available digital cameras. That's an area where Steve could help us.

Thanks--Steve's pages are great! A real resource

I can guarantee it works up to 1GB - used my 1GB SanDisk and Transcend card in the Coolpix.

Definitely will NOT work with FAT-32 cards, only the Nikon pro SLR cameras can talk to FAT-32
