This is a nice feature, but not a feature most of us use often; for example, on a recent two week trip, I took 220 shots of which only 12 were panorama. If you are going to purchase multiple SmartMedia cards, you might be able to do with just one or two Olympus brand cards - especially since they cost more than other brands. I use two other brand SmartMedia cards, and save my Olympus brand cards for when panorama shots present (since you can switch the cards out at anytime - unlike traditional camera film).
Also to realistically determine what the price premium is, check prices for Olympus and other brand SmartMedia not only here, but also at other popular commercial sites.
I bought this SmartMedia card many months ago (right after it came out) but I waited to write the review because I wanted to have some real experience with it first. I'm very satisfied with this product and I highly recommend it. Here are some comments that you might find helpful in the decision-making process. Some of these are answers to questions I originally had, but learned the answers to after using the project.
First, I required a SmartMedia card with lots of memory and support for the "panorama" function of my Olympus C-2100 digital camera. (This function guides the user through taking multiple pictures, panning slightly to one direction after each picture. The photos are automatically "stitched" together by the Olympus Camedia Master software that comes with the camera.) I also wanted a card that would work with my Creative Nomad MG MP3 player, but when I bought it I wasn't sure it would be compatible.
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Thin plastic card with gold contacts. Measures 45mm x 37mm x 0.76mm. Weighs in at 1.8 grams. The package I got included a small, clear, medium-hard plastic case and a thin soft plastic sheath. Also included a label and a write-protect sticker. Apparently it offers a tolerance of one million program/erase cycles and zero-power data retention up to 10 years.
STORAGE: At 128MB, this card provides a great deal of storage space - the most to date (Sept 2001) of any SmartMedia card. Olympus was one of the first manufacturers to release this capacity and they did so with full support of the "panorama" feature of the camera. As far as photo storage is concerned, it was the only card I needed for a 10-day Caribbean vacation. At (mostly) 1280 x 960 resolution, I fit nearly 500 pictures on the card before it finally filled up.Read more ›
I'm going back to Olympus cards. Memory is not all created equally. (BTW, I also had a SanDisk USB memory card reader. That was a piece of junk too - the memory card got stuck and wouldn't come out! Their tech support said "Push down real hard on the card with the reader upside down and it will come out" - I kid you not! Stay away from anything those pinheads manufacture.)
Tangent to the 128MB Olympus Smart Media Card is their Card Reader. I opted out of that option, because the only benefit of it seemed to be the convenience of not having to plug your camera into a USB port.Read more ›

Accessories for out of date merchandise is hard to come by; if you can't find any it means getting rid of perfectly good merchandise so it's best to keep searching a little longer.Published on August 18, 2012 by Frank Nap
