Hi there.

i have recently purchased a 512mb xd card for my Olympus mju-300.
so far i have always used the included 16mb card, wich could keep 67
pictures at 1024x768.
i therefore expected the new card to hold 67x512/16=2144 pictures, but
currently it says 1876 pictures left (wich is the capacity i would
expect for 448mb).
if i connect the camera to the pc it is actually seen as a 512mb
drive.
the manual also says the camera is compatible with 512mb cards.

so what's going on? is the 1876 figure right or have i maybe reached a
software limit in the camera?
had i known this before, i would have bought 2x256 instead...

thanks
davide

Davide,

You will find that the 1876 is an estimate. as you fill the card with photos
you will find (most likely) that you fit 2000 odd photos.
I have a 64MB card and when it is empty the camera (not an Olympus Mju 300)
says that I can take 128 images but often I manage to fit >130 images. Every
picture is a different size depending on the contast of colours and light
etc.
