64MB SmartMedia Camera Memory Cards
SmartMedia cards were produced in 1995 as an alternative to floppies, and have been used as storage devices for digital cameras. They were produced regularly until 2002 after reaching their peak in 2001, and are still available in 5v and the 3.3v formats. If your compatible digital device is available, you can use a 64MB SmartMedia card and easily shuffle your favorite photos from camera to desktop in a matter of minutes.What brands of digital cameras are compatible with the card?
Whether you have a generic model of a digital camera or a name brand, the 64MB SmartMedia memory cards will work with them. The devices may work with brands such as:
- Agfa: With an output of no more than 1.2 megapixels, you can store over 50 pictures in your 64MB cards.
- SanDisk: SanDisk cards for digital equipment are available in both 3.3v and 5v formats. They can be used with both Mac and Windows PCs.
- Olympus: A 64 megabyte card for an Olympus device will hold approximately 50-75 pictures, depending on the size and quality of your picture.
- Yamaha: As with SanDisk, Yamaha cards are compatible with both Mac and Windows. They feature 3.3 and 5v formats.
Even though the SmartMedia cards weigh just a little over a quarter of an ounce, they will store between 50 to 100 pictures. This depends on the camera itself and the size of the picture, as well as the quality. These cards hold up to 64 megabytes of information and are just over an inch in height and length. You'll recognize them by the chip on top of the card, which is gold in appearance.How do you transfer pictures from card to computer?
A reader hooks up to your desktop or laptop computer through a USB port, and you insert the card into the reader. A digital connection creates the transfer from the memory card to the computer. This connection takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes. Once the transfer is complete, you can then print the photos or simply store them on the PC.What materials are used in this item?
The black memory card is created from a very thin plastic, and the flash chip is embedded within the internal section of the card. The chip is made from a combination of silicone and graphene. These materials combine to create an effective method of transferring memory through conduction. You may also see some versions of the SmartMedia card that have multiple micro-chips linked together.Content provided for informational purposes only. eBay is not affiliated with or endorsed by SmartMedia.
