    Hey come on now... it does the same **** as an upper end camera, just not as good :lawl: But seriously, if your good with it, the only downfalls are high ISO noise and shutter lag.

    ONE Jiggabyte?!?!

    Most MS Pro Duo cards come with a MS Pro Duo -> MS Pro adapter card so they work in all cameras. They also make adapters to use a MicroSD (I have a $7 4GB SanDisk one in my phone) so you can use 2x MicroSD in a MS Pro camera. It's all flash memory and will work as long as the camera formats the card.

    Option 1

    MS Pro -> 2x MicroSD

    MS Pro Duo -> MS Pro

    4GB SanDisk MicroSD

    You're gonna get raped on Memory Stick prices anywhere you go. It's only used by Sony, it's outdated, so it's just high priced everywhere. I had a Sony PnS and this was the reason I didn't get Sony again.

    Your best bet is to get both adapters and the 4GB card, or go the easy way and pay the same price for a 1GB MS Pro card. Since you cam is still using Pro and not Pro Duo, I wouldn't try using two cards or a total capacity over 4GB, since it likely will flip out and sh!t the bed.

    Option 2

    You buy this card and I send you my MS Pro -> MS Pro Duo adapter for free, if you don't get one and I can find mine...

    thanks for the help dude.

    so basically i could buy this...

    http://www.amazon.com/Memory-Stick-...?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1239973354&sr=1-12

    and then this....

    http://www.amazon.com/Sony-MSMT4G-M...1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1239974069&sr=1-1

    and the second link should be able to go into the piece in the first link, and it would work fine?

    andy, the MS DUO cards come with the adapter in the retail pack so you dont need to buy one separately. ive never seen a duo without an adapter packaged with it.

    in the same vein, both microSD cards i have came with adapters too...
