I read that the olympus does the panormic stitching..But I am buying hopefully A fuji FinePix S-5100

Should I stick with the fuji digital card or does it matter? I know I must have 2. (just incase I leave one in the computer or forget to unload a card...) So I was planning to get a 256 card and maybe a 128. This is what I currently have for my Samsung, which of course is and SD card....I am planning to buy this camera either tomorrow or with in the next few days....

Any input on cards would be GREAT!

Thanks

Cutting to the quick... it doesn't matter which brand of xD card you get. The Fuji can't use Olympus's panoramic feature. I would look at a 256 or even 512 mb card whichshould give you plenty of storage. As point of comparison, I have an Oly C-730 (a 3 megger) and 3 xD cards - the original 16, a Fuji 128, and an Oly 256. I generally shoot with the Oly 256, only because of capacity; I can get ~140 "best" quality pictures on it. The Fuji 128 is first string backup while the original Oly card that came with the camera is definitely 2nd string due to limited capacity.

Enjoy your new camera!

Doesn't matter...I have used both the Fuji and the Oly xD cards in my S5100. I have two 256 cards, which works fine for me. If and when the price drops on the 512 cards, I will probably pick one up, just in case I want to take some extended video clips.

You can do panoramic stitching without internal software...for example, try:

(it's free)

Good luck with the new camera.
