Storage
  • 16 MB internal flash memory
  • Slot for memory card
  • This camera supports both Secure Digital (SD) and MultiMediaCard (MMC) memory cards 16 MB and larger. Only MMC cards that have been verified compliant to the MultiMediaCard specification are supported. Compliant MMC memory cards have the MultiMediaCard logo on the card or package.
  • SD cards are recommended, as they are faster than MMC cards at reading and writing data.
  • This camera supports memory cards up to 1 GB. A high capacity card itself does not affect camera performance, but a large number of files (over 300) does affect the time it takes for the camera to turn on.
  • The number of images that can be saved in memory depends on the Image Quality settings.
Audio capture
  • Still pictures - audio clip length depends on the amount of available memory.
  • Burst - audio capture not available.
  • Video clips - audio is recorded automatically.
