Question about Olympus MJU 400 Digital Camera

Mju 400 slow down with 2GB xD-PicCard?!?!

Hi. I have a Olympus 400 mju camera for almost 7 years. Everything were well until few months ago. Instead of my old 128 MB xd card which just stoped operating, I'v bought a brand new 2 GB M+ Olympus xD-PictureCard, but... From than, mju 400 starts to terrible slows down. Even if I clean up card (format) and there are no picture on it, it takes almost 15 seconds from opening lens to be prepared for action. In case when I'd some pictures on card, it takes much more time for camera to be prepared for use.
Also, from that point (starting use 2GB xD card), battery life is much shorter.
Is there something wrong with my 2Gb card?
Will 1GB card fix that boring "problems"?
I'm sure that 512MB fix it, but i can not find it in stores ;)
Thnx in advance.

It's possible that your camera, being 7 years old, was never designed for a 2gb card. You can find cards of all sizes at amazon.com

i don't know that is is usually possible to transfer from the camera memory to a card in the camera. i would offload those few photos to your computer and use an xd card from now on :).

How to activate panorama?


Panorama shooting lets you create a panoramic picture, using the OLYMPUS
Master software from the provided CD-ROM. An Olympus xD-Picture Card is required for Panorama shooting. If the card is a Fuji xD card then the panorama feature would be disabled to you.

Xd card type


A Fuji card can be used in the camera; the only function that will be disabled is if you wish to take panorama shots with the camera. Panorama in the Olympus cameras is proprietary therefore in order to shoot panorama shots Olympus requires that you specifically use their xD picture card. Otherwise the Fuji card will work just fine.

Memory card


Yes, it is likely that the larger memory card is slowing your camera down.

XD 1GB card


i think it's just 'cos of the sheer size of the memory it has to access. mine works quite quickly but when i put in a 512 it takes a lot longer i would not say there is anything wrong - just teh limitations of a device which was designed when even 128MB was a luxury ricardi, shropshire

Smart Media obsolete?


I have a fuji finepix 601 working with smartmedia cards, however the newer version of it, the 610 now has XD-cards which are even smaller. Olympus also is using XD cards for their new cameras. It looks like smartmedia is becoming obsolete indeed, as the maximum card size is 128 mb and other card form go much further. I don t see new cameras being sold with smartmedia cards, but the smartmedia cards are still sold in most shops, so it may be wise to buy an extra one if you want to use your olympus camera on the long term.
