Yes, you can, but MMC cards are generally slower than SD cards. Also, MMC cards do not have the write-protect tabs on them like SD cards do. If you don't do a lot of burst shooting, then the speed difference probably will not matter to you. If you need a faster card, thjen you whould check into SD cards.

also, with the mmc you might not be able to shoot movies at 30fps.

As the FZ 30 is a fast camera with 8mp capacity, I think the popular concensus is to go with something with a fast read/write speed. The 50x speed cards about 10mbs sec, the 150x are about 20mb sec. This makes a difference for burst mode shooting and video in highest resolution mode. Some of the regular speed cards only write 2mb sec, so you can see that there will be a bottleneck while waiting for your camera to send the images to a slower card.

If you can afford it, try for the higher speed cards for faster write times for your large files.

The prices are not too bad for the high speed if you shop around

Thanks for the info
