View Full Version : Memory cards in Olympus C5000Z

I'm a digital camera novice. Recently bought my 1st - olympus C5000Z. Bought a Fuji xD 128MB card to go with it. Opened the camera box and there was a note saying only to use olympus memory cards in the camera. Is this true?

Nope. It's BS. My dad had a C-2020 and the manual said to only use Olympus batteries. They'll do their best to sell you overpriced accessories.

I think Fuji and Olympus are the only major manufacturers (or mabye the only ones at all) who are using the xD picture cards. I have seen some cards in the store that say "Fuji" on the cardboard packaging and "Olympus" on the card itself. I don't think there is too much, if any, difference between them. I have heard that some cameras are temperamental about taking panoramic shots with any card but their own brand installed.

Thanks for your help - I'll put the Fuji card in and give it a try.
