Sorrie, but never heard of any places that rent out SM cards.....photography equipments, yes....digital storage media like SM/CF/SD/MMC/MS, no.

A 128MB SM card costing $90 (relatively cheap, IMHO) can easily take up to 250 moderately-compressed JPEG pix @ 1600x100 resolution, more if at lower resolution or higher compression rate.

So unless u r using those 3.3MP/4.1MP DCs and taking ur pix in those high-MP settings or using a very low JPEG compression rate, then u'll need lotsa 128MB SM cards.

If not, my suggestion is to acquire one or 2 more of your own, cos you'll definitely be needing them in future.

Oh I see...since u r using an Oly C-40z then I'll incl. ur name in our Olympus Club (http://forums.clubsnap.org/showthread.php?s=&threadid=2207).

Go to Sim Lim Square......Alan Photo on the ground floor should be selling no-brand 128MB SM for abt $90....most comes with warranty of 1 week to 12 months.

Or if brand is important, go upstairs and ask the pc hardware shops, a 128MB "SANDISK" brand 128MB SM card goes for abt $120 with a 5 yrs warranty.

The writing/reading speed of a SM card is determined by the I/O mechanism on the DC. This is unlike a Compact Flash (CF) card whereby the I/O interface built-into the card itself.

By the way, I'm now using a no-brand 128MB SM, had taken 1000+ pix and reformatted numerous time...still going strong, but I would suggest that u buy at least two 128MB in addition to whatever u have so far....running out of storage capacity when trying to take the pix of ur lifetime can be REALLY painful.

Try the image tank, basically a SM/CF reader attached to a laptop HDD.:

They also rent (IC etc needed) if you're not willing to pay $259+cost of HDD for the kit. Kudoz at SLS is a convenient location.

If you use a 20G laptop HDD (~$180), you can store over 155x128mb SM worth of data... you can even save on having to buy more than one 128mb SM (maybe with a 32/64mb as backup at most).

Highly recommended method for anyone going on a mid-long photo vacation... :)

Now if only the price can drop to a more reasonable rate for wat is basically a deluxe SM/CF card reader... :D
