Will a 2GB 150x card work in Kodak P850 ? ? I'm considering purchasing this camera and Iopened the PDF file from the Kodak website and could not find out if the camera will support such an SD card.

No problem with a 2GB card :-)

I guess that begs the question, would a larger card also work in the Kodak P850?

Simply no because you won't and never could find such cards.
This whole so media sexy SD-card becomes soon "walking ghost" thanks to its 2GB size limit, actually already 2GB cards are jerry-riggs overcoming original 1GB size limit.


Only future proof card is CF, current size limit is 137GB.
(but that exactly didn't limit size growth in computer hard drives)

Just to share, here is the response I received from Kodak. It is curious that Kodak sells a high speed SD card on its website but their e-mail reply states that there is no advantage to using a high speed card in a Kodak camera . . .

Yes, the KODAK EASYSHARE P850 Zoom Digital Camera can support a 2 GB SD card but it is not recommended. Please note the larger the cardcapacity, the longer it takes to access the card. Regarding the speed, our cameras are designed to operate, write and read SD cards at set voltage speeds. Therefore, there is no advantage to using faster memory in Kodak cameras.
