I have a Best Buy gift card burning a hole in my pocket. I've researched the SD ram for the 7630 and all I have found about ram was in the manual... 512 was the top end.

Can the DX7630 handle 1GB? I figure that should be the only card I'd need.

Should I be concerned with write speeds? I'd be using the video function about as much as the stills.

I can't answer that, but i do have a thought about that. from when i was buying cards for my other camera...

I would rather have 2 512 disks (or even lower) then 1 1-gig disk. If for some reason something went wrong with that disk you would always have a back up ready to go. Just my 2ยข... plus I am intersted in what people say because your camera is the one I want to buy.

I`ve been told the 7630 will take the 1gig SD ..but,,,consider this ,,,,if it fails when full,,,you`ll lose about 800-1000 pics,,,,i`d go with 512 or 256,,,get a bunch,,,and they are cheap as dirt now.....

And the 512s are easier to get- at least Best Buy only offers the 1GB online. I need instant gratification.

I'll have to pin a brick to the loose SD card... It's so small, I'll lose it for certain!

I use a 1 gig with my 7630 without any issues. I do have a extra SD card but I have not used it with this camera yet.


Also, with the 7630 set to "fine" compression and the largest pics (6.1 MP) you get less than 400 pics with the 1 gig.

I went on and bought the 1GB card.

I did find that with the video mode, the camera only registers 80min of video time available on the card. It may max out at 80 since I should see 120min. I recorded 10-15min and the meter never moved from 80min.
