Question about Olympus Camedia D-510 Zoom Digital Camera
I have a Olympus D-510 digital camera which I love and it uses Smart Media disks. I heard that they are going to be obsolete. Has anyone heard that? And what do do if they are? What media is the new and upcoming thing to buy?

There are an awful lot of devices in circulation that use that media. I think you can count on being able to find it *somewhere* for the next few years, at least. And you'll probably be able to find some on eBay for more than a decade. Besides, how many do you need for a camera? I have an Olympus 2020 and each 64 meg card gives me over 128 high-res shots. One card will be enough for most users. Few people will wear them out (they do have a limited number of writes they can do.) Buy a couple of extras as replacements for lost cards and that should last most people forever. Really heavy users might splurge for six or eight of them if they see the prices start to rise as they become more scarce a few years from now. But that should be a very rare person that needs to be concerned about that.

I have a fuji finepix 601 working with smartmedia cards, however the newer version of it, the 610 now has XD-cards which are even smaller. Olympus also is using XD cards for their new cameras. It looks like smartmedia is becoming obsolete indeed, as the maximum card size is 128 mb and other card form go much further. I don t see new cameras being sold with smartmedia cards, but the smartmedia cards are still sold in most shops, so it may be wise to buy an extra one if you want to use your olympus camera on the long term.
