I meant airmail-stamp size, which is rather larger than a first-class stamp
;-). Anyway, I am sure that CompactFlash is what I have; I prefer it to the
other standard because I have a Sandisk CompactFlash reader that works great
under kernel 2.4.18 and a few flash cards. The smaller size of the SmartMedia
cards is appealing, but then they seem to be more expensive at large
capacities, easier to lose, and likely less durable.

Sorry for the confusion :-).

Anyway, I am now leaning to a Casio QV4000 camera, which appears to be
supported by a USB mass storage kernel driver:


as documented above. No word on the above page about Casio's
Linux-friendliness, but there are no complains from the developers posted
there either.

I also like the Casio because it is an unobtrusive black, rather than an
eye-grabbing silver, like most of the rest. Silly, I know ;-).
