Hi All,

I've been clearing out/throwing away all my old photo's but came across my very first but old digital camera I bought in 2001. It's a Fujifilm Finepix 1300. It used a Smartmedia card, still in the camera too, but how do I go about looking at what's on the card ? It's large & incredibly flimsy.
I'm sure I have some old ship photo's on it but can't find any equipment that is compatible.

Regards,

Before you go out and buy a card reader cant you view whats on the card by viewing the photos via the camera ?

Thanks guys,
Appreciate the responses. @Paul - The camera no longer works despite replenishing with new batteries and the screen is no bigger than Apple's new iWatch, so for someone with failing eyesight (me) means it makes it difficult to view the resolution. The days of one's youth is long gone.

@Peter the card reader looks fascinating - didn't realise such a device existed.

Looking forward to seeing what's on it. I both the camera in St Maarten when I was 'touring' the Caribbean/Panama Canal.

I used to use a "PCMCIA SmartMedia adapter" for reading my SmartMedia card, still got it in my desk draw but have just realised I need a computer as old as the card to slot it into  Huh
