Having problems with your HP Photosmart 618 Digital Camera ?

I want to know if i can use a 8 gb cf card for a hp 618 camera

Answers :

Definitely not. When your 2.11MP camera was designed even 1GB CF cards hadn't been released. Your camera will be completely unable to address the memory of large capacity cards and is limited to an absolute maximum of 512MB.

Cards of that size will slow the camera down though and some brands may not even work, so I recommend that you go no higher than 256MB, which even at highest picture quality settings will still allow you to store 240 JPEGs at the best quality level and about 900 JPEGs at the good quality level.

256MB and 512 MB CF cards are regarded as obsolete now and are hard to find in shops but are still available from online retailers. Alternatively, just ask on your local FreeCycle or Freegle groups as the resale value of such cards is zero and many folks have them lying around in drawers and in dead devices.

My Lumix DMC FZ30 use to work using a 4gb SDHC SanDisk card, but now says, "Memory card error please check the card". However, the card works fine in any other cameras.

When I put the memory card in the camera it says 'cannot read' it. How do I format the card? I know it has the right 'size' memory.

Shutter Lag All, I have an Olympus 5050 Digital Camera that I have been using for a while now for home use and I am quite happy with the results. The only complaint I have is with the capture speed of the camera. The shutter lag seems to be about between 3-5 seconds which becomes quite obvious while taking pictures of moving objects (moving kids). I don't know if the issue is with the shutter speed of the camera or with the slower memory cards. I am using the SimpleTecg 256 MB Compact Flash card

Card speed won't interfere with shutter lag.\015\012\015\012The lag is much less (near non-existent) if you pre-focus. Or use manual focus with small enough aperture to get lots of depth of field. Make sure your kids are in the focus zone and just sn ... Olympus Camedia C-5050 Zoom Digital Camera

Pictures missing some (not all) of pictures taken end up missing from the camera ; they can't be viewed on the camera or loaded into my pc. I know the pics were there but missing later. this has happened with two separate memory cards so I know it's not a card problem. I've had the camersa a few years and this is the first problem. One of the memory cards intermittantly comes up with a "memory card error" message but not the card that was exclusively in use when the problem first showed itself.

If you haven't done so yet, take one of the cards, reformat it correctly (please ask again if you need info on how to do this) and see if you get any change.\015\012\015\012Are you using a PC card reader to transfer the photos or a USB cable?\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera
