I was going to buy a larger compactflash card for someone who owns the Nikon Coolpix 950 digital camera. However I just noticed that maximum size listed is 256mb.

Does anyone know if larger compactflash cards would work in this camera? Such as 512mb?

You're probably fine with anything up to 2GB (limitation of 16 bit FAT), but I don't have a 2GB CF card to test with.

I just tested a 512mb and 1GB card in mine with no problems (formatted in the camera and took a photo with each one). I normally use a Lexar 4x 256mb card in it. LOL

I just happened to have fresh batteries already in the camera since I was at a party over the weekend so I put a couple of larger cards in it real quick.

PNY 512MB, Sandisk Ultra II 1GB both work.

You may want to make sure you're running the latest firmware in the camera. I'm on firmware version 1.3

Ok thank you for the all the replies. I'll probably get a 512mb card.
