Is there any difference in speed between Olympus xD Card (http://www.compuadds.com/product.asp?prodcode=W-200859P) and Lexar xD Card (http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproductdesc.asp?submit=Go&DEPA=0&CMP=OTC-Froogle&description=N82E16820171504) ?
Can they both used for Olympus C-770UZ?

Hi Casper,
You can use any brand of xD card in your camera. The panorama function will not work with the Oly Camedia Software if you do not use an Olympus branded card, however you can use other software to stitch a panorama if you want to. I have never heard of a speed difference in different brands of xD cards.
Happy Snappin',

Just to add to the above post: Lexar xd cards are actually Olympus branded (as are Sandisk xd cards), so I believe the Panorama function does work with them. It just doesn't work with the Fuji branded kind.

Another point to note, I've now seen 1Gb cards for sale.
