Note that the Camedia models appear to continue to use the abomination that is xD memory cards. Why, oh, why, would they come up with yet another standard?!? (hint: it's because they hate Panasonic)...

Surprisingly, it appears that the μ1020 uses microSD... which seems an unusual choice for a camera, but at least I have a reader for it!
