Does the camera have an default memory that will write a limited number of images before the warning appears ?

If so, then how are these images accessed ?
I think that model might have a 2GB internal memory (I might be thinking of one of the ultrazoom P&S in our house). I'll check the specs & manual. Edit: Nah, I just checked & there is no internal memory. Sorry.

I did that the other day with my E-M5 of some birds (the feathered kind ), only to discover there was no card.
I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
