Should the "tail wag the dog" i.e. Is a common storage chip an important choice?
Jan 19, 2005

I would like to know if when choosing a digital camera for my first one, how important is consideration of the storage format such as choosing the most common ones such as compact flash and the other common formats versus xDPicture Card? I have been seriously considering the Olympus 7000c with the 7.1 megapixal CCD, and it uses a rather odd ball memory chip, the xD Picture Card. Would I be making a mistake in buying it versus a camera which uses a more common chip?
