Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

The xD-Picture Card is a new type of ultra-compact memory media that has been developed jointly by Fujifilm and Olympus. It meets the demands of new camera technologies that deliver larger image files and in some cases have the ability to record high-quality movie footage. By adopting a very small footprint (of only 20 x 25 x 1.7mm and around 2g in weight), camera designers also have the flexibility to produce more compact and innovative models.

The name 'xD-Picture Card' was derived from eXtreme Digital and was chosen to reflect the excellence with which the new format would be able to record, store and transport audio-visual information. With a capacity for up to 8Gb of data, the format is set to meet the demands of data storage in digital cameras and other devices well into the future.

As well as the potential for large capacities, (increasingly larger capacity cards will become available through 2003 and 2004), xD-Picture Cards have a high read/write performance. The new media boasts data transfer rates of around 5Mb of data per second. This makes them ideally placed for recording image 'bursts' (i.e. large numbers of images over a short time interval), high-resolution images and high quality video, (such as the full frame, full frame rate movie mode offered in some FinePix cameras). It also greatly enhances the user's perception of the product. The waiting times, as images are written to the card, or read from it, are also minimised.

Despite the higher performance in terms of capacity and speed, xD-Picture Cards are also more economical with battery power. User's will benefit immediately from enhanced battery life and fewer recharges.

Product Description

The xD-Picture Card is a newly-developed ultra-compact storage media that is set to be a standard in the future of digital imaging. Despite its tiny dimensions, it boasts incredible storage capacities.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tiny card, huge capacity 20 Oct 2003
Verified Purchase
The XD memory system was developed by olympus and fuji, which means that the fuji card is compatable in an olympus camera(I have a 3.2 megapixel camera). However the fuji card is £20 cheaper than the olympus card, the only difference in the cards being a lack of a panoramic facility on the fuji card (don't think this function is similar to the panoramic function on an APS camera, it involves 'stiching' photos together) which if I ever want to use I will use the 16mb olympus card that came with the camera.
With this card you can take from 326 photos on the default setting (3.2 megapixels) to a staggering 1598! photos on the lowest resolution setting all on a card the size of a thumbnail.
Worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars 256MB XD Card - Superb Value 17 Mar 2005
Bought this card before my holidays and took over 200 pics plus (3M resolution) and some mini video's on my Fuji F410. Still had room for approx 100 photos. Superb value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fastest I've owned 3 April 2005
Verified Purchase
I've got a Fuji S5500 and bought this chip because, as usual, Fuji only gives you 16 megs. I've used CF and SD cards and this card leaves them standing. I realise that new chips and circuitry also help but interms of sheer speed at allowing me to "Snap away" this card really is all that the Fuji and Olympus people say it is. And this card REALLY is as small as a postage stamp. For some reason it's made by Panasonic.
Highly recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fujifilm 256Mb xD Card - Caution 28 Sep 2006
Verified Purchase
Be aware that when you order this card you are likely to receive a type M/H card and not the the standard xD card as illustrated! Type M/H cards are compatible with most - BUT NOT ALL - xD digital camera. Check out the Fujifilm (or Olympus) website to check compatibility for your particular camera. Digital cameras over 3 years old may not be fully compatible. I was lucky, the card works in my 3 year old Olympus C750 - although it is a bit slower that the standard xD card.

If you enlarge the picture of the xD card you will see an illustration of the standard card that you should receive - not the type M/H that you will actually receive. Amazon should update their page for this item as soon as possible. You have been warned!

4.0 out of 5 stars Big capacity and fast download speed but pricey 21 Oct 2003
Great storage capacity! 256MBytes is big enough to store up all the pictures I can shoot on trips away from home. For example, I can hold hundreds of shots taken at high resolution on my Fuji Finepix 3800 camera (200 shots taken at 3 MPixel resolution, or 640 shots taken at a still respectable 2 MPixel resolution). Pictures download rapidly from this card to my PC, much faster than from a smartmedia card I used in a previous camera. And of course xD cards are so much more compact than smartmedia cards. On the downside, these xD cards are so pricey compared to smartmedia cards, so card format is definitely something to consider if you're still deciding on which digital camera to buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Product! 30 May 2006
By KJ3000
I bought the 256MB XD Picture Card for my now ancient Fujifilm FinePix A210 and it works perfectly. At 3 megapixels it holds a very acceptable 325 images (as opposed to 33 on the supplied 16Mb picture card), and 550 at 1 megapixel. It also comes in a little plastic case for safe keeping which is extremely handy considering the size of the card! Highly recommended product for people who don't want extreme amounts of images, but enough for taking photos at high quality and still have plenty left.

5.0 out of 5 stars A useful piece of kit 4 Jan 2006
What can I say? It's XD, it's Fuji and it works. 256Mb is getting small these days, but it holds a good number of photos even on my 6Mpixel camera. A good compromise between price and capacity.
