Although they are generally interchangeable with SD cards, they are not the same.
Stick to SD and (if you upgrade the firmware) SDHC cards. Took about three weeks to decide on going for the fuji s700, it has arrived along with the 4gb card I ordered with it, but i have no idea how to do the firmware update without another blank formated card before hand.
As always be very careful to follow the instructions exactly, as a misstep could cause the camera to become inoperative.
Here is the link for the update: SDHC cards are physically the same size as regular SD cards. That is why a camera must have software (called "firmware" when it is built into hardware other than a computer) that can read/write to them .
My son will help me but he doens't know if it is possible without another formatted card?
