Default what is this panorama that olympus has on it's xd cards.

I want to buy at least a 128mgs xd card, and I see that Olympus offers a 256nm with panoramic.

What is that for and does it work on a c740??

Also do I really really need to have that? The Oly is considerably more expensive and I could get a 256m fuji alot cheaper

I need an answer ASAP...

Thanks.

Well too late now... went ahead and got myself a 256 Fuji for $66 Us... free whipping.

I gather that If I want to use the panoramic shot I can use the 16Xd card that comes with the camera and save myslef some bucks.

I felt the same way when I bought my Olympus. I keep the 16 MB card for the off chance I want to make a panorama picture and use the aftermarket for everything else. There have been threads on the Oly board on how to format a card for panorama but its not worth the time and effort to me.

That's what I thought too.


Why bother with it when I was able to get a 256Megs XD card for $64???

Is that an awesome deal or what??

The annoying thing is, the Oly card does not produce panorama mode shots by magic. They are generic Oly branded cards, but the camera looks for the hidden brand name on the cards format, before it lets you into the camera's pano mode.

Can I ask where you bought the card from since even with the exchange rate thats cheaper by a decent margin compared to what I can find fugi's cards for up around me. Thanks for the information in advance!

Ebay...

Some guy was selling two of those because from what he told me he bought a camera and two cards and for some reason returned the camera and couldn't return the cards because he had lost the receipts, so he sold at a loss on Ebay..

Oh yeah free shipping as well, that dude was awesome.

Very nice catch Hammerjoe! I guess I will have to keep my eyes peeled for a deal like that!
