Am considering getting an Olympus 6000 (or 8000), when I noticed the 6010 was recently announced.
Using the product comparison on Olympus's site, it would seem the 6000/8000 does -not- support SDHC cards (but the 6010 does).

Can anyone with a 6000/8000 confirm this is true? That you can't use SDHC cards (and effectively are limited to 2G only... or are there non SDHC cards >2G?) or have you actually been successful in using a 4/8G SDHC card in your camera?

Also, if I'm limited to 2G cards only, what is the maximum number of photos i can take with the highest quality/resolution?

Thanks.

(*) I'm just looking for a simple waterproof P&S camera that I can use outdoors and not worry about bad weather. Started out looking at the Z33WP, which seems rather unawesome from reviews. Am looking for something between $200-350 or so, and will probably buying it from the US.

PS:Also wondering, anyone knows how much Olympus charges to change the rubber gaskets of this camera?

Hi Just bought the 8000, and it came bundled with a free SDHC card and a XD adaptor for the SDHC card.

Thanks for the info.

Have one other question about the 8000; does the USB on the camera use a 'standard' cable?
I noticed the 8000 charges via the camera, and travel would be much easier if I could just charge it with my laptop an a regular USB cable...

(The 6000 provides an external charger instead...)

Was asking about the seal as it's recommended you replace it annually if you use it underwater a fair bit. (Olympus quoted $100+)
