Olympus Mju 9010 | Digital Camera Review | Storage and Energy
Much has been written about the xD Picture memory card in the past years. From the moment of introduction, it was heckled by the public, and only supported by Fujifilm and Olympus, so that the xD didn’t really stand much of a chance. Especially not considering the expansion of the SD platform, and this quickly became a worldwide standard. Still, it took Olympus a long time to bite the bullet and say good-bye to the xD experiment. The Olympus Mju 9010 has been freed of it in any case, and supports SD and SDHC memory cards up to 32GB.

Olympus Mju 9010 supports SD memory cards
As mentioned earlier, the SD platform is a worldwide standard, with the advantage that these cards are available in different prices, kinds and capacities. The Olympus Mju 9010 doesn’t really need fast memory cards, a standard memory card is fine for normal use. It is remarkable that Olympus doesn’t support SDXC yet. SDXC is the newest generation of the SD platform and begins with 48GB and will extend up to an unbelievable 2TB in the coming years. Such a large storage capacity will normally not be combined with the Olympus Mju 9010. Perhaps it has to do with licensing, but you would expect that if Olympus now fully welcomes SD, that it would include SDXC.
Olympus Mju 9010 equipped with USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interface
The Olympus Mju 9010 camera has been equipped with a fast USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interface. It transfers pictures at a high speed. The speed of the Olympus Mju 9010 camera is stable and fast. If you want to make things simple for yourself, and don't want the hassle of working with a cable all the time, you might want to purchase a fast USB 2.0 High Speed card reader, which does not require connecting the camera. It's fast, easy and saves battery capacity.
Olympus Li-50B Lithium Ion battery
The Olympus Mju 9010 mega zoom camera’s energy source is a Li-Ion battery. The Olympus Li-50B Lithium Ion battery has a capacity of 3,7V 925mAh and requires about 120 minutes to be fully charged. The amount of shots that you can take with it varies, and depends on the circumstances in which you photograph (think of environmental temperature) and the way in which you photograph. You can assume that if you are to go to an important event, or somewhere that you cannot easily recharge the battery, that a spare battery is recommendable.
