Is SmartMedia camera-specific?

Just purchased FUJI MX-1200, but I want to get another SmartMedia chip for it.  Do I have to buy FUJI SmartMedia, or will any brand work?

Also, I want to buy a USB SmartMedia reader - any leads or tips?

Please advise - I'm new to SmartMedia.  Thx!

BTW, anyone ever seen this USB SmartMedia reader?  It's at BUY.COM for $60 and supports 1.5mb/sec:


Thanks again!

SmartMedia is SmartMedia.  Any vendor's SmartMedia branded module will work.

BTW, it's too bad you bought a SmartMedia based camera.  Compact Flash is less expensive and available in MUCH larger sizes!

Thanks for the info - that was my gut instinct but I didn't want to chance it.  

Yeah i noticed CompactFlash was cheaper but SmartMedia is smaller, and the camera I got is small and weighs 7 ounces.  I figured for the price I got the camera, I'd save more since I plan to buy only one more large memory chip anyway ;-)
