Thank you

A one Gig card is probably all that you need, but video will use a good deal more. Be sure that the camera is set to record to the SD card, not the internal memory. If you are concerned, you can remove the card and transfer the files to your computer and start again. This is much faster than with a cable. Good luck

How do you insert a 8 gb sdhc card into a fujifim finepix 2600zoom camera with 2.0 mega pixels


You don't. It takes a Smart Media card, not a Secure Data card - the two are not interchangeable.

Setting my Samsung ST76 to 1MB photos


I do not complete understand what you want. My fuss is, you want every picture to be about 1 MB on your memory card. I do strongly advice against this, but you own the camera and so it be. You always can make pictures with a smaller resolution from high quality pictures, but never the other way around. You better shoot highest quality on your camera and later wham the pictures are on your computer down size the ones that are less important to 1 MB.
But you can choose 5 mega pixels with normal compression or 3 mega pixels with fine compression or 2 mega pixels with super fine compression. All these pictures will look fine in an e-mail, or on the net. Even a 6 by 4 inch picture will look fine. Memory cards will cost like 1 dollar pro Gbyte, so my advice is buy a few 8 or 16 Gb cards and shoot in high def.

I have olympus camedia 4.0 mega pixel. old camera. need to know how to change the camera photo storage from 18 photos to at least 64 photos storage


Hi, jamesepatton, and welcome to FixYa.
I am going to assume that you are referring to the camera's internal storage, as opposed to the camera's removable storage card.
Obviously, to increase the storage on a removable card, one need only purchase another, higher capacity storage card.
To change the camera's internal storage capacity, one needs to reduce the resolution of the pictures one takes.
Example- your Olympus is capable of taking a 4.0 mega pixel sized picture. This size picture can generate a fairly large data file (after all, pictures- like Word documents- are only data files!) While this is what is normally programmed into the camera at the factory, you are not 'married' to this size. In the "Setting" menu of the camera, there will be an option to change the mega pixel (mp) setting. Try lowering it to the next lower setting (say, 3.0 mp) and shoot until the camera tells you it's full. You may have to try several different mp setting, but eventually you'll land on the right one. It's going to depend a lot on what is in your pictures as well, as different scenes and content can affect file size.
A quick note here: Lowering the mp setting will affect the quality (and/or resolution) of the photo. I have found that for a great majority of the photos that I personally take, a 2.0 mp setting is just fine. I am by no means shooting magazine covers or entering my pictures in contests, I shoot 'em, print 'em and save 'em. Just your basic home pictures.
If resolution/quality is important, I would highly recommend that you save ALL pictures to a removable memory card and leave the camera set on 4.0 mp.
Good luck, and let us know how you go!

Hi,
The polaroid i830 does not have a good in built memory so u cannot take more than 2 pictures at a resolution of 8 mega pixels and 16mb is as good as no memory :-)
So, either you need to buy a SD card (I have 2 GB working perfectly fine with my i830) or reduce the resolution to VGA.
Steps:
1. Switch on the camera.
2. Push the button below 'M'.
3. You will find the option of resolution, select VGA.

You can now store upto 30 images.

When I upload images some get corrupted and some says DrawingFail


drawing failed indicates that the pictures were not properly written to the card by the camera. It might be due to some problem in camera, but most likely is a problem with the memory card or the speed of the memory card. I'd suggest to use a professional memory card for cameras with 8+ mega pixles resolution.

Memory card for Olympus FE270


The larger the image, the more space it consumes, your new camera is producing files that are twice as large as the old one did. Buy a larger memory card, they are quite inexpensive these days.
