  • CF compatibility

    Hi All

    I'm struggling to get a definitive answer for this. What CF cards will the E-410 accept.

    I'm aware it'll take up to up to 8gb TypeII. What about the faster III and IV cards?

    Also - anyone know the write speed? Will there be an advantage using type IV or the new Ultras over Type II?

        Re: CF compatibility

        Wish I'd seen this thread earlier last week; I've bought 2 Hama CFII cards, 1 x 4Gb & 1 x 8Gb, which are completely unsuitable. :/

        I now have the Sandisks on order.

          I think perhaps they might work OK as the specification for those CF cards is - [Suitable for terminal devices with CompactFlash type I & II slot.] (but make sure the camera is at Firmware 1.2) which is what the E410 takes as seen in the E410 Manual, page 119.

          If you have also ordered the Sandisk CF cards then you should be OK with them anyhow.

            I checked my firmware on Friday last, & it reported up-to-date ... don't know how reliable the firmware updater is these days??

              My SanDisk has arrivd, & works first time! Excellent.

              So ... 1 x 4Gb Hama & 1 x 8Gb Hama CF cards to be listed on the woks noticeboard.

                That's good news! I assume you formatted the card in the camera before using it?

                I should power up my (son's now) E410 & take some shots with it. It did produce some nice detail (actually more than my E520, I think because of the stronger AA filter in the latter).

                Now all we need is to see your great photos.

                  Awesome news And the SanDisk worked without the need to format, but I have anyway, just to be compliant with the advice.

                  With the 3x2Gb M+, the 1x2Gb M, the 1x1Gb H & this 4Gb CF card, I don't think I'll need to buy storage for a while.

                  Now to getting back to photography in a way like never before.

                  Thanks all!
