picking a memory card

by moo182 / November 22, 2005 8:56 AM PST

i just bought a Nikon Coolpix 4600 and now i am wondering what kind of a memory card to buy. I've looked in the info book it came with and cant seem to find anything... except for the page where it shows you how to insert the memory card (it shows a memory card that says sd 128mb on it) .... i'm confused is that the only memory card i can buy???

next, how many pictures could i get on my camera with a memory card???

my last question is, is the Kodak Z700 (i'm pretty sure thats what it is...) that comes with a docking station better than the Nikon coolpix 4600... i'm considering bringing back the Nikon back and getting the kodak that comes with the docking station instead (its just $50 dollars more)... would this be a good investment? is the kodak a better camera than the nikon??? i need some help with this.

thanks!

Your camera taakes a SD card. I just bought a 1 GB for my HP a few months ago, and I think they now sell a 2 GB. On the highest resolution I get 377 pictures, and on the lowest I get 785. Many people recommend several smaller cards rather than 1 large one, so that if a card dies on you, you don't have all your eggs in one basket.

SD card for Coolpix

Hi,
your coolpix will accept SD cards (Secure digital).In SD card market Sandisk is good one.There are also lot of SD card makers in the market. How much photo u can save in a card depends on various things viz.what MP u r using,what type of copression r used and off course the capacity of the SD card etc.It is better to go for two or three cards of size 256 MB or 512 MB than to purchase one 1GB or 2GB card.Kodak docking system will help u to charge the kodak NIMH rechargeable battery as well as one touch transfer of photos to your PC through Kodak Easyshare software.If u use card reader for transfer of photos then this utility will no use to u.Then it will be used for charging the Kodak rechargeable batterires. Now, the decision is yours.
