6 Reasons For

SD Compatible Memory Cards

This camera supports an SD compatible memory cards, which is typical of many compact cameras that were launched around the same time as it. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

If the memory card type of this Vivitar digital camera is not good enough for you then you might want to look at the Coolpix S9700[pl_2173237_price] (SD|SDHC|SDXC), or the Coolpix L29[pl_2124045_price] (SD|SDHC|SDXC) both from Nikon or the Fujifilm X10[plb_1150_price] (SD|SDHC|SDXC) which also has a higher rating.
