128 meg for C2100UZ
Hi all...

I just was lucky enough to find a remaining C2100UZ (new in box) at the local WalMart. It was clearanced priced at $359. What a deal!
anyway... my question is whether the C2100 will work with a 128 meg SM card. The manual only states up to 64 meg. I assume this is because 128 meg was not available when this camera came out?

Yes, on the 128 meg. I use one in my Uzi.

It knows all...

Good shooting,

Thanks, Bill and Gary. That's what I'll get next. I found 128 meg SM locally for $49.95.

Amazon has 128MB Smartmedia (Viking Brand) for $49.95 + Free shipping, so you could always get that too.

One question I've got.. since SM is going out the door, is 128MB as high they're gonna make them? At this point should we begin stocking up on 128MB cards over the next year or so?

I think 128 is going to be the limit for smartmedia, period! There's talk about phasing it out eventually, espeically with Olympus and Fuji (probably others) coming out with the new Xd format...there's talk about the new C-730 having an Xd slot as well as a smartmedia slot.

Industry is forcasting a surplus of flash memory(9/02), look for deals later this month. Wondering if the 730 will have a CF slot that would allow use of adapter for xD memory and also allow use of readers already on market?????

With oversupply worsening, global flash memory chip prices are likely to tumble another 10% in September, reported compact flash card makers, citing information from flash suppliers.

Despite a rise in digital camera shipments, flash prices have been on the decline as market demand has still not been able to keep up with the continuous expansion of flash capacity worldwide, compact flash card makers indicated. Now that Toshiba, a leading flash supplier, has completed flash equipment installation at its plant in Japan, supply has shot up further, they said.

Moreover, many DRAM module makers, repelled by unpredictable DRAM module prices and attracted by better gross margins for flash products, have increasingly turned toward manufacturing compact flash cards and related products, said the card makers. As more companies enter the flash arena, the fierce competition for market share has inevitably driven prices down, they note.

I just got the C-2100uz about three weeks ago and I love it. I don't foresee wanting another camera any time soon, so I think stocking up is a good idea! I've found the service and prices at Memory Suppliers to be excellent. See Memory Suppliers for their selection of SmartMedia cards and accessories.
