  • The microSD / microSDHC card can be used only with the cameras compatible with MASD-1. The MASD-1 is different from the xD-Picture card in form. Forcing it into an incompatible camera or any other equipment, it may damage camera or card or cause malfunction with the equipment. The images on the memory card may be destroyed.

  • The Panorama feature does not function on the models with + when using a microSD/microSDHC card. To use the Panorama feature, use an OLYMPUS xD-Picture Card™.

  • The maximum movie length is limited to 29-minutes per movie. Using Type M, standard xD-Picture Card, micorSD/ microSDHC card, or the camera's internal memory, the maximum recording length per movie is limited to 10 seconds with VGA/ 30 fps movie mode. All other movie modes allow up to 29-minutes of recording time per movie.
