Zippy, What price are they offering on that Kodak card? I've seen many good prices on Fuji and Olympus 1 GB cards recently. I've used Olympus XD cards in my Fuji Finepix S5000 & S5200 cameras with no problems at all and I don't see why Kodak cards wouldn't work although I've never tried them.
Kodak has a limited time sale on a 1G picture card. I have a Fuji Finepix550 camera and have been using 512 Fuji cards.
I've read the forum caveats about using a larger card generally speaking (all chickens in one basket, too much data for subsequent storage on one CD, etc.) but am concerned whether a 1G would be OK (even recommended) for safe use in this camera period (ie no puff of smoke during the first exposure)?
Also, I've never used any but the Fuji brand card and am now also wondering again if any non-Fuji card will work as well, or at all (Kodak, Olympus, etc.)in this camera? Salespeople seem to think so, but I've stuck with the Fuji in case. Is there reason for me to stick with the Fuji cards (or anyone with different make cameras to stick with brand to brand cards)?
If brands are interchangeable, is there any discernable difference in quality between brands (best/avoid)? If buying, should I switch from Fuji?
Thanks a lot. Zippy
