Dear Steve's DigiCams Users,

Would someone please tell me if my Olympus digital C-700 Ultra Zoom is compatible with the Figi/Olympus xD series, especially the 1 GBcard? SanDisk is unsure, and Olympus isn't answering. I can't believe that I'd be stuck with only 128MBSmartmedia memory. Thank you very much.

Sincerely,

Matthew

No, it's not compatible. xD-PictureCard was not released until after this camera model, and it is a physically different type of memory.

Your camera model (introduced in 2001)is 4+ year old technology. It wasn't until later in 2002 that any models started using xD-Picturecard.

Thank you, JimC,for that depressing news. I guess that the 128 will have to do.

Well, look at it on the bright side. The file sizes for your model are smaller than they are for newer, higher resolution models.

So, you can fit more photos in 128mb. ;-)
