Casio EX-Z500 memory: internal vs card

Discussion in 'Casio' started by Jeffrey Kaplan, Jun 23, 2006.

  1. I just picked up this camera new last week. It has some internal
    memory space which I'd like to use to permanently store copies of some
    photos. I've found how I can copy a photo from the card into the
    internal memory, but what's in the internal memory does not show in the
    playback mode unless I first eject the card. This also makes it
    impossible to copy such an image +back+ to the card later.

    Am I missing something? Or is this supposed to be a one-way procedure.

    What if I had taken these pictures without a card in the camera, how
    would I get them onto the card?

    I +can+ connect the cradle to a USB port on my computer (USB hub,
    actually), but I'd rather not.

    Why not? That's your solution.

    There's always someone who wants to do what things are not designed to do.

    Because that would mean removing the card.
    I think that's my point: Why can I, with just the camera, copy a
    photograph from the card to the internal memory, but not from the
    internal memory to the card?

    there. I will not wait until the troops break into my inner sanctum to
    attempt this.

    Ask the camera manufacturer.

    Also, I can't understand why you want to use your camera's limited
    internal memory for permanent storage. Wouldn't a CD be better?

  6. It is alleged that MartinS claimed:
    I'm trying to NOT connect a bunch of things to my computer. The more
    items I connect to it, the more drivers it self-installs. The more
    drivers it installs, the slower the system gets because the more
    overhead there is.
    If no one else can answer the question, I will.

  7. It is alleged that MartinS claimed:
    Because I can't just whip out a CD and say, "...and this is a picture I
    took of X." Since this camera is small enough to fit in a pocket, it's
    with me most of the time. As such, I +can+ use it as a mobile photo
    viewer. So I figured that since it has an internal memory, to retain
    as much space as possible on the card for new photos, I'd put ones I
    want to always have available in the internal memory instead. I then
    discovered that with the card in the slot, stuff on the internal memory
    isn't visible.

    It feels like a half-finished feature.
