Fujifilm makes some great cameras. Their low-light performance and color vibrancy can be stunning. But every review I write has to have the caveat "requires dorky, expensive xD memory cards."

No more! Fujifilm and SD are now good buds. The new high-end F40fd (March 2007, $300) and entry-level A610 ($130) and A800 ($180) feature 2-in-1 slots that accept SD or xD cards (like anyone is still going to use an xD card now). And all of their new cameras from now on will feature the SD-friendly slots.

Thank you, thank you, Fujifilm. Now, can you have a little talk with Olympus about their xD addiction and with Sony about this MemoryStick silliness.
