panoramic mode on Olympus digital camedias

Recommended Posts

Having problems selecting the panorama mode on the Olympus camedia

digital cameras with the Multi media cards. and yes it does have the

P designation on the Olympus card.

1> Does anyone else have this issue?

2> Will any alternative MM cards work with the panorama mode.


I guess I am asking whether Olympus is having a branding issue to

make money. I mean it is memory, not film size right???


Any help always welcome

Non-Olympus cards can be "re-programmed" to enable the panoramic mode.

I discovered a gentleman in NY who will do this for about $10 per card on the www.dpreview website (Olympus forum). Well worth the cost savings over Oly cards.

I had him do his trick on a 128mb card that cost me a total of about $30 after rebates.

If you e-mail me I'll supply you with his name and address.

You may also find on the forum mentioned (in the archives) how to do this on your own, but I found it too involved to justify the possibility of screwing up my card.
