The 128MB card holds 169 images at the HQ (High Quaility 3 MegaPixel setting) in the Olympus 3000/3030 and so far so good, but I am still waiting on that rebate check from Viking. :(
Also, there is a "hack" to enable the panaorama feature of the Olympus camera's... It has to do with formatting with "Olympus PAN" in the header :) ....
From research, I found that there are only two companies that produce smartmedia cards and that the only difference between the two is the country in which they are produced. The Viking media comes from Japan, which is supposedly better.
But it turns out these cards are fragile, and fingerprints can short them out or cause problems with the camera or reader being able to access their contents. So the best way to keep them around forever is to get a 128 MB card and never remove it! Ideally, then, this should be a solution coupled with the purchase or ownership of a camera which interfaces directly (USB or firewire) with the PC, so there won't be a need to remove the card. Ever. That security, and the ability to store over a hundred 8x10 print-quality pix on one wafer-thin card, makes the bigger sized card easily worth the extra cost if you're getting a Fuji or other-brand digital camera.
As for brand...well, after trying a Fuji and a Viking card, and checking the wiring stats on both, it turns out the brand names of Smart Cards have almost nothing to do with quality -- these are, for all intents and purposes, interchangable -- so buying the cheapest one out there is the best bet. And, with rebates, the Viking card IS the cheapest Smart Media brand on the market -- by a factor of about 10% or more. Order now before the sale price changes!
Not much to say other than it is a 128MB SmartMedia card that works perfectly. I have purchased the Viking cards before and never had a problem with them either. Viking is a truly wonderful company that manufacturers only the best quality products and amazingly low prices.
I use this card in my Olympus C-3030 without a hitch. It even can utilize the panoramic feature.
According to Viking this is not the case I checked Vikings website 7 April 2001 and at this time Viking confirmed (under FAQ) that only Olympus's Smartmedia has panoramic functionality, due to proprietary software used by Olympus.
If you are buying this card for Oly pano functionality check with Viking first!
Just for reference, my Olympus tells me I can put 46 shots on a blank 128mb card, although I've been able to get as many as 61 shots on the card shooting at 4.1 megapixels and SHQ mode on my camera (highest JPEG resolution).
I have a 2 megapixel camera, and in HQ mode each photo is approximately 500K, and in SHQ mode 1MB. This means you can fit 256 or 128 photos in the respective modes. In my brief experience I have found the HQ mode sufficient for most photos, so for me this card stores the equivelant of 10 rolls of film. For my 2 megapixel camera, this has been a convenience. For those who plan to save even larger files, I would say that the 128MB size is essential. And with the falling prices on these cards, it makes more sense than ever to invest in a card this size.
