London, 10 August 2006 - Olympus has announced the introduction of a Type M-series xD-Picture Card™, allowing photographers to take approximately 1000 shots using an 8 mega-pixel camera in HQ mode.
This advanced ultra-compact memory card will enable users to take a year’s worth of photo shots and store them onto the same memory card. It will also allow users to keep more videos on their cards without having to worry about filling up the memory. With a data-storage capacity of 2GB, the M-XD2GM card has the largest memory in the xD-Picture Card™ range to date.
The new card will be available from August 2006. For stockist information call 0800 0720070 or visit www.olympus.co.uk.
The development of advanced video-recording functions in digital cameras, along with the desire for higher digital picture quality, is calling out for digital camera memory media with greater data-storage capacities and higher performance.
The Olympus M-XD2GM Type M-series xD-Picture Card™ packs 2GB of memory in to an ultra-compact media card measuring just 25.0 (W) x20.0 (H) x1.7mm (D) in size. Using an 8 mega-pixel Olympus digital camera in HQ mode, the card will enable users to take and store approximately 1000 shots.
The Olympus xD-Picture Card™ not only supports the exclusive Olympus Panorama option but also the popular 3D, oil painting, watercolour & cartoon art effect functions by inputting the access code to the Olympus Master software (Version 1.4 or later). A pair of 3D glasses are even included in all Type M boxes!
The M-XD2GM has been designed using the latest high-capacity storage technology, based on the Multi-Level Cell, which will be used to develop all capacities of the xD-Picture Card™ Type M series.
