Question about Olympus Camedia C-5050 Zoom Digital Camera

2 Answers

Memory card compatibility

I would like to upgrade memory on my C5050. I fancy Compact Flash memory cards of 1,2 and 4 GB. However, I was told that I have to check compatibility of such cards. Olympus tech support says that I should check compatibility issue with manufacturer of specific card. Contacting competent people of memory manufacturers seems to be extremely difficult. Would anyone else have some experience with this?

Re: Memory card compatibility

For what it's worth, I know it's not advised to use cards higher than 512kb in an Olympus E-10. I don't know if Olympus have used the same 'card' technology in both cameras, though.

Re: Memory card compatibility

Can't be much help on this one I'm afraid. I too have a C5050 and have numerous cards the largest of which is 512MB. I wouldn't like to use anything bigger than this just in case the card fails. I don't like having all my eggs in one basket. I quite often change cards on a shoot well before they are full also for the same reason. . Not so expensive to replace as well when they do go wrong. I also have an XD card loaded at the same time and swap between the two frequently That said to date I haven't had a CF or XD card fail on me as yet, but theres always a first time. I've also never had any problems with the C5050 recognising any CF cards of any type up to 512MB in size and cannot see any reason why they would fail to use a 1GB or above.

How much compact flash memory can the 5700 support


The Nikon CoolPix 5700 can support up to 1 GB CF type memory cards, but only of a certain brand. Nikon maintains a list of approved cards - those brands and capacities that have been tested to work 100%. Other cards may work too - but no further testing of memory cards is being done with this model camera.

I hope this helps! Good luck!

Should you use an 8gb sd memory card in a panasonic lumix dmc-fx3 camera ?


Hi,

The manual lists the following SD cards compatible:

4 GB SDHC Memory Card
2 GB SD Memory Card
1 GB SD Memory Card
512 MB SD Memory Card
256 MB SD Memory Card
128 MB SD Memory Card
64 MB SD Memory Card

An 8GB card may or may not work. If you try it, make sure it is an SDHC card. (Note: HC=High Capacity)

Thanks for using Fixya.

Z3 will not accept a 2g card


The Dimage Z3 accept SD cards up to 1GB (Minolta says 512 Mb, and sold it with 16Mb). This camera is 4MP , and uses less memory on card, therefore a 512MB card will be enough for it.

New memory card and the camera says its full


try doing a format with the camera. check your manual to see how to do this with your camera. Beware, formatting will erase anything on the card. i actually had the same problem with my camera, and this worked for me. Sometimes new flash cards are not compatible off the shelf--they need to be formatted. You should have at least flash cards to be sure card is not defective. Let me know if this helps!

Upgrade olympus d-560 256 mb memory to 2 gb memory


The problem is that the largest xD card that your camera can support is an M or H 512mb card. The 1gb or 2gb cards are not compatible. Due to the age of the camera Olympus has no plans to provide any upgrade for allowing a larger memory card.
