I have the Konica Minolta Dimage X 60 camera. Question: What is the max size

of an SD Card can I use in this camera. I would like to getting the biggest amount

of storage so I only have to carry around 1 or 2 cards, and be able to take longer

lasting videos. But sometimes the amount of card storage is denpendent on the

camera's processor which I can't find anything about it. Hopefullly maybe someone

will know. Thanks in advance for your help !

Welcome to the forums.

I'd stick to 1GB or smaller cards in your camera. Steve tested the X60 with a 1GB Sandisk Extreme III, and it works fine with that card.

But, when you get into cards larger than 1GB with SD (even though 2GB is still using a 16 bit FAT, you have other issues with SD that can impact how the file system works), you tend to start seeing compatibilty issues. With even larger 4GB cards, you need SDHC cards, and this model isn't compatible with them.

Here's a reasonably priced 1GB card you may want to try in it:

Thanks so much for the answer. Not what I wanted to hear but you did save me

some $$$'s. How is he Sandisk Extreme III better than the regular card?

I doubt you'd see any difference between the Extreme III and a card like the Transcend. Both are likely much faster than the X60 is going to be able to take advantage of (the camera's write speed to media is going to be the bottleneck, versus the speed of the card with faster cards).
