PNY ANNOUNCES THE LAUNCH OF ITS NEW 2GB xD-Picture Card™ BY OLYMPUS

With the emergence of higher performance xD-Picture Card™ compatible digital cameras and thanks to its Olympus partnership, PNY Technologies enlarges its xD-Picture Card™ range launching the 2GB capacity.

Introducing 2GB storage capacity in its xD-Picture Card™ range, PNY now meets all customers’ needs: digital camera owners can now take 1,000 shots (with a camera resolution of 8 megapixels) with an Olympus digital still camera in HQ mode (the default high-quality image setting).

The development of advanced video-recording functions in digital cameras and the desire for higher digital picture quality means a demand for larger memory. Olympus plans to apply this high-capacity technology to develop the xD-Picture Card™ for Olympus digital cameras with memory capacities eventually reaching up to 8GB.

PNY xD-Picture Card™ Type M can be widely found both online and on the highstreet.
All PNY xD-Picture Cards™ offer the exclusive Olympus panorama option.

Recommended retail price incl. vat:
PNY xD-Picture Card™ Type M £61.00
