Default Oly xD card vs. Fuji xD card

Oly xD card vs. Fuji xD card? Is there any difference between the two. Can they be inter-changed between the two types of cameras? I am going to purchase the Oly C-740UZ and another family member has the Fuji with the xD card. Should anyone know I would appreciate the feed-back. P.S. this is the greatest place for info on camereas I have yet to discover. My kudoos to all.

Thanks - [email protected]

Those xD cards all come out of the same factory - they're completely interchangeable between Fuji and Oly cameras.

As Steve noted, the Olympus and Fuji xD cards are fully interchangeable between the two brands of cameras. I have a Olympus C-730 and use both Olympus and Fuji brand xD cards - they all state that they're manufactured by Panasonic.

One minor difference between the cameras - the Olympus camera will not implement its "unique" panorama mode when using a Fuji card. If you use a Fuji card, the panorama function will be "grayed-out" as a menu option. In other words, if you want to use the panorama mode in your new C-740, you must use an Olympus xD card (any size Olympus card will work.) The Fuji card will work with all the other various modes the camera offers.
