Re: F55 - Memory Stick Limit? MPEG Frames per Second?

I don't know what the exact frame rate is, but it's fairly low. I reckon about 8-10 FPS, which is more than good enough to put on a web page or to email to someone. If you need anything higher quality wise, then you're better off looking at a mini-DV camcorder ;-)

Re: F55 - Memory Stick Limit? MPEG Frames per Second?

The official line from Sony is that all devices that take memory sticks will be compatible with future sizes of memory stick. This was a major design consideration for them. If that is the case, then I applaud them for that as it pretty much future-proofs the devices as far as memory is concerned (Sony say that they'll have 256Mb memory sticks by 2001, i.e. in the next 14 months or so!). So I would say yes, the F55 should be compatible with all the new memory sticks that are coming out. Regards,

Can I use memory stick duo adaptor with memory stick pro duo on sony dsc s85


The DSC-S85 works with the original Memory Sticks, 128MB or smaller. Even with an adapter, you'd still be limited to 128MB.

I have a Sony digital camera model # DSC S75. I would like the largest memory stick available for still photos. I get confused with GM and MB. I found one for 32 GB, is that the lrgest and about how much...


I did a bit of research on this, and you're going to have to be very careful. Your camera is only compatible with the very first generation of "memory stick". That sounds like a generic term, but it's actually a Sony specification. Please take a look at the wikipedia page on memory stick, and note all the newer versions. Also note that the 'memory stick' is no longer manufactured. Here is a list of memory sizes, I agree that the Mb and Gb are confusing. Each one is double the size of the one before.

8 Mb
16 Mb
32 Mb
64 Mb
128 Mb
256 Mb
512 Mb
1 Gb
2 Gb
4 Gb
8 Gb
16 Gb
32 Gb
64 Gb

Now, you will have to find a genuine Sony "memory stick" and not the Pro, or Duo, or anything like that. When they were manufactured, the largest one was 128 Mb, so that is the limit for your camera. Anything in "Gb" or Gigabytes cannot be a memory stick. I did find 128Mb memory sticks on Amazon. The review page on DPreview will tell you how many pictures you can store on a card half the size, just double it.

Where to purchase a memory stick for Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P71. Every card I have seen is not the same size as the current one I have


Hi,

The DSC-P71 Camera is compatible only with the 32MB / 64MB / 128MB Memory Stick Duo only. Standard Memory Stick media cannot be used with this Camera.
It's bit hard to find out these Memory Sticks as most of the Companies discontinued manufacturing low capacity Memory Sticks. However you can try contacting a Sony Store or any Sony dealers near your area to get one.

Why does my DSC-P31 Camera won't accept Sony memory MSAC-M2?? and what are the list of memory stick that compatible to DSC-P31?? thanks


It is an old camera. It was introduced in 2002. The spec's I looked up just say memory stick, and memory included "8MB Memory Stick". I looked the MSAC-M2 up on line and it looks a like it's a "Memory Stick Duo Adapter" not a memory stick. I'd try one that is sold as a "Memory Stick".

Shutter speed won't go over 5 frames a sec. on d300


Even if your camera is rated at shooting more than five continuous frames at a time, those are stored in a memory buffer in the camera, when the buffer is full the camera writes the images to your flash memory card. How fast the memory card can accept the data will determine who fast space is made available in the buffer for a sixth or seventh shot.

The main limitation on how many images can be shot in continuous mode is based on the storage capacity of the memory buffer and also how fast images can be written to your inserted memory card.

So, the higher the resolution the image the more space it takes in the memory buffer. Should you shoot in a smaller resolution you should be able to shoot more frames continuously. However, there are a few variables involved. If the Camera is preset at the factory to not store any more than five images no matter what the resolution than there is no way around this encumbered feature. And, or the speed at which the memory card you use can accept written data will also decide how fast the buffer is cleared for new data.

The highest speed flash memory conforms with Version 6 and has a write speed of 188x.

So, the things to double check is if a limitation is built into your camera of five images and no more than five no matter what the resolution. This is not uncommon. The second is the speed at which data can be cleared from the buffer and written to the memory card, less common but a newer standard now that faster flash memory cards are becoming available.

Now, all that being said, There are 'firmware' updates released from time to time that make adjustments to camera features than can change these variables

Most Nikons use Compact Flash so see if you can get a high speed card that is version 6 compliant. But, first, check the sony support site for your camera and see if 5 is the limit no matter what. And if so, see if there is a firmware update under downloads at the support site that increases the number of shots that can be stored in buffer while being written to the flash memory card.

I have a client wtih a D60 who when she switched over to 133x Compact Flash was able to shoot more frames faster in continuous mode.

Please don't hesitate to use the comment text box below for any further assistance, such as the support page at Sony for your camera if you don't have in in yoru manual. Or any information you may need regarding shooting in high speed mode and what format to use. Most Pros that consult with me are using JPEG uncompressed. If you have questions please provide more detail on how you have your camera setup and under what conditions you are shooting in when attempting to capture more frames per continuous mode shotting.

Worldvet

Memory card


Hi - no, the DSC-P7 isn't compatible with Memory Stick Pro, only original Memory Stick, meaning you're limited to 128MB/stick. Having said that, the P7 is only a 3.2MPixel camera, 128MB will hold quite a few pictures, even at full resolution.

What size of flash memory card do you recommend me using with my PENTAX digital camera?


The answer depends on your personal needs and your budget. Memory cards are available in many sizes 8MB, 16MB, 32MB, 64MB, 128MB, 256MB and 512MB. The larger the card size, the more storage space and the greater the cost. One recommendation is to select a card that allows you to take images without having to worry about changing cards or downloading images very often (one of the advantages of digital photography). Among the most popular are those in 64MB, 128MB or 256MB sizes. You may want to purchase a second card to use as a back-up or replacement card that can be used if you run out of space on the first card or to use when the first card is unavailable (you may be downloading or printing images from the first card.)
