Title: Fuji XD Memory Card
Post by: GillE on June 13, 2019, 19:43
Does anyone know where I can get a Fuji XD memory card at a reasonable price (ie much less than 20!) ?  It's for my old Fuji Finepix camera which boasts 3.2 mega pixels!  :laugh:

Olympus XD memory cards are not compatible.

They don't seem easy to come by, do they?  Have you tried on eBay?

Sadly, eBay isn't much of a help.

I did see one or two on there, but they seemed very low storage capacity.

I'm guessing they're proprietary to Fuji equipment so they can charge what they like. Probably a lot cheaper to get a newer camera and a modern higher capacity SD card.

My Finepix A330 is an astonishingly good camera for its age.  I've also got a Nikon D3300 and a D850 plus my iPods, so I'm hardly short of cameras.  I think I might keep the A330 in my bicycle paniers, just in case a decent piccie presents itself when I'm out riding.

BTW, I found an old 128mb XD card at the back of a drawer, which is handy  :) .

I was thinking more of the storage price Gill. High speed high capacity SD cards are very cheap these days. 128 Mb is not a lot by todays standards even with a relatively low res camera. As you say if you use it for a few ad hoc pics great, I just think you'll get shafted trying to upgrade the storage (as per your original question) on a legacy camera.
I've binned off several very good cameras for the same reason..lack of capacity.

I wondered if 128Mb was a misprint, considering 128Gb cards are now quite cheaply available.

Okay, so it's only a JPEG as opposed to a RAW file, and it only has automatic settings, but for a ten-year-old 3.2 MP camera it still makes me happy.

By the way, the dog nested in the flower pot of his own volition.  I was trying to dry some chillies and I suppose the chihuahua's Mexican urges took over.

If you plant them, do you get more?   :)x

Oh, he could make more without any effort on my part!  Thank goodness hes had the snip or the UK would have been overrun with his offspring! 🐶
