Lumix dmc-lz2 how high can the sd memory card go and which brand should I buy?

SD cards max out at 2GB. The manual states 1GB as the maximum size, but 1GB SD cards are getting very hard to find. You should be able to use a 2GB card.

Getting memory card error when I install an 8GB Sandisk card

Some digital cameras can handle large memory cards as they are unable to format or manage that size of memory. Check your user manual which will tell you the maximun size allowed.

Fuji Fine Pix S602 Z Memory card formatting problem

Looking at the original advertisements for that camera, it is only advertised as having memory cards up to 1Gb. You might find that the problem is that the camera doesn't support a card as big as 4Gb. You can probably check this in your manual.

Nikon coolpix 2100- out of memory- After installing 4gb CF card

4GB requires FAT32. Camera firmware only supports FAT16. 4GB won't work because FAT16 has a 2GB maximum size limitation. 1GB CF card is Nikon's "approved" maximum for this camera.

Catch: 22 1GB -and lesser capacity- CF cards are no longer manufacturered or generally available in 2010. When the current CF card dies, the still working camera also becomes throwaway unless you can source a CF card 1GB or under. 2GB may work, but with 'issues' per caution below.

CAUTION: Anecdotal evidence suggests the final release -& current- firmware for cameras of this generation is also encumbered by with a maximum picture number limitation of 999, realistic at the time of original manufacture when 256MB was a the largest capacity CF card but completely nonsensical now.

Summary: This is my first NIkon Digital camera and also my last.

Apart from the noteriety of the ubiquitous broken Nikon plastic battery latch, a major design flaw Nikon refuse to acknowledge or accept liability to rectify -since self-repaired better than OEM, Nikon policy on firmware support is complete abandonment of product within an unacceptably short service window. ie: a deliberate poilicy of enforced obsolescence.

Suggested Problem Remedy: Do buy a new camera supporting SD Cards of current capacities. Don't buy anything branded Nikon.

What is the maximum memory C/F for sony DSC-F828

On the Sony website it says 4G is the maximum "capatible" size. However from my understanding about the description, 4G is the file size limit on the FAT32 format, the camera should be able to use 8G card. Puls 8G cards often provide higher speed. If you wanna be safe, use 4G, if capacity is an issue, use 8G

What is the maximum SD memory card size that a Canon 510 and 520 Powershot can use?

Recommended by factory is up to 512 MB, that will work for sure.

It should support up to 2GB card, supporting cards thet have SHDC technology.

Before buying a 2 GB card, I would go to the shop and test it on the camera, so that you are sure it works.

Largest capacity SD card for Pentax Optio S5N

The maximum supported size is most likely 2GB SD Card. Cards with 4GB and more are following a new (incompatible) standard called SDHC (SD High Capacity), SDHC cards work only in devices specifically supporting SDHC. The Optio S5N uses the old SD standard where 2GB are the maximum size.
