MS Pro Cards For F828

I just purchased the F828 and will be using CF flash (512mb) for most of my still shooting, but I want to get a MS Pro for video (640 fine). Thew Lexar cards are less expensive than the Sony and they have a read/write speed of 0f 40x (compared to Sony's 80x) - could the F828 use anything faster than 40x if I got the faster card?

As I understand, And for what others have said in this forum, the answer is no. I wanted to buy an Extreme III card, but there was an complete NO on this issue. The point is... if there is no Sony device that can use 80X, why do they sell it?????

What media card does fujifilm digital camera S7000 use

You have a choice. Your Fuji S7000 accepts both xD cards and CF cards (Compact Flash).

xD cards to a maximum capacity of 512MB are supported, and you can also use CF cards to a maximum capacity of 1GB, but in my experience the camera was a bit unreliable when using 1GB cards so it's best to go no larger than 512MB even with CF.

CF cards are cheaper, more widely available and have faster transfer rates than xD. If you accidentally delete or reformat the card or if it gets corrupted in any other way then it's far easier to recover useful data from a CF card.

512MB cards are no longer widely available in shops but are still easy to buy online. Alternatively, you may wish to ask friends and relatives or ask on your local FreeCycle/Freegle groups as 512MB is now largely obsolete and have no resale value so many folks have them lying around in drawers and dead cameras. Just make sure to reformat them by using the erase function in your camera before trying to use them. You'll find out how to do so on page 71 of this free download of your user manual. (It was scanned at two pages per screen, so you'll find page 71 on page 36 of the .pdf document).

I hope that you have found my reply to be comprehensive and useful. Please take a moment to rate the free answer I have provided for you and any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome!

New SanDisk 4GB CF Card - Coolpix displays out of memory

This is because the Coolpix 2100 and 31000 models cannot handle a card of that large a capacity. As it's only a 2MP camera anyway it doesn't need it.

The Coolpix 2100/3100 will usually accept up to a 512MB CF card, and 1GB Lexar CF cards up to and including the 24x WA write accelerated (although write acceleration itself offers no benefits on this camera). With Sandisk only a plain old and now obsolete SDFB allows a 1GB card to be used and the regular Sandisk Ultra (not Ultra II or later) will only work up to 512MB.

The camera was discontinued long before these much larger CF cards were released and Nikon no longer actively support the product so no firmware updates will be available. The hardware wouldn't support such cards anyway.

Compatibility chart for CF cards address below:-

Compact Flash adapters


try the following program:

gogle for: GParted Live Disk

With this tool, you should be able to make TWO PARTITIONS on your 1GB CF-card (cheaper then 512MB) and create a partition with 510Mb (caution! NOT 512Mb!!).

Now you should be able to use the CF-card in your SPD-S.

Further advantage, you can store backups on the second partition, by copying them (on your PC) to the second partition.

Best regards,

Roland SPD-S Flash card error

The card I have always been using is now also suddenly giving this message. I found an old SanDisk 16MB and a 1GB SanDisk that works perfectly in my Boss 864 and they also give the same message. Trying to go into formatting brings the message "no card!"

Nikon SD card for D80 / D200/ D300

You should have no trouble using the SDHC cards. SDHC stands for Secure Digital High Capacity. The images should load directly from camera to computer, without the need for any additional hardware.

Please Clarify Compact Flash

Not true. I have a 256MB CF card. I'm sure bigger cards will also work.

CF Excessive Power

Nikons and Fujis keep the CF slot powered, and "poll" it every now and then to see if a card has been removed or inserted. So yes, a camera may drain batteries much faster with a CF card than it does with an XD. But if it really does do this, then someone at Fuji deserves to be on the street, looking for a new job. Polling a card every few seconds does not have to be a traumatic experience to the camera. A Nikon can sleep for months, and not show appreciable battery drain. After what I've seen in the horribly slow CF write times of the S3, and the large artificial difference in write times between CF and xD on that camera, I'd say someone (or several "someones") at Fuji is doing everything in their power to make CF look bad and steer people into xD.

F828-cover open message

Hello, This happens when your CF cover is not well locked (or if there is a problem with the lock sensor ;-)

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.
