I am shopping ASAP for a 256 xd picture card for my Olympus C-770. I know that the panoramic feature only works with Olympus cards...but it isn't a feature I need. Is anybrand faster or has other advantages or are they all exactly the same??

I have a 256mb Oly and 512mb Fugi xD card and can't tell any difference what so ever in speed between the two of them (doesn't matter if its in camera write/read or in an external card reader). They should all perform exactly the same as far as I know.

For what it's worth, I believe there was/is a utility which could mark non Olympus cards with the magic info so that the Olympus cameras could still use the panoramic feature.

I don't have one of those cameras, so I don't know what the utility is... but I seem to remember that being talked about here on occasion. You might want to ask in the Olympus section of this forum.
