Type II is thicker, and is actually a mini HDD (hence with moving parts).
check your cam's manual to see if it is compatible with CF type II. If not explicitly stated, then most likely it's not.
Reliable brands are lexar, sandisk, transcend....not in order of reliability, and of cos there are others.

CF Type II is not necessary a mini-HDD or MicroDrive. Flash memory CF Type II is also available, but they are rarer now. So you don't have to worry. Most of the sub 4GB CF cards you get in the market are CF Type 1.

(Warning: Not all digicams who can take Type II CF can take a MicroDrive, check ur manual)
The MicroDrives are mini Harddisks and generate more heat. the camera may not take it.
Compact Flash Cards? Most of us call it "CF" for short.
or the last meaning of CFC i know is
Chloroflurocarbons. (CFC) the things that harm the ozone layer of the earth...lol
CFC used to stand for California Fried Chicken too, years back. yummy.
for S45, you will not need a expensive high speed one, so rule out sandisk Ultra II and Lexar, unless ur rich....then thats a diff story.
Hagiwara and Kingstons are pretty good. Transcend is good too.
I dont like NCP for personal reasons. but I guess since they are RAM makers the CF they make cant be That bad.

Type I = thinner size of type II. <- corrected.
Type II = Credit size length, old regular name call PCMCIA card use for notebook peecee. 32bit spec version is call CardBus. U can buy a Type II adapter to insert a CF card to insert into your notebook without the need of a USB reader etc. <- corrected.
Type III = double the thickness of Type II. Eg. Xircom use to have a ethernet/modem PCMCIA card that use 2 PCMCIA Type II slot or there are type III flash memory HDD that occupied 2 x type II PCMCIA. The thickness of Type III is roughly about the thickness of 2.5" HDD.

The sandisk 'extreme' is build for colder situation. Pay a bit more for such specs rather than getting the normal ones. The battery is another key weak point. Do bring extra - they do not last as long when cold.

I think you're gonna get problems with batteries etc, you better research on cold weather photography, as well as condensation issues, sudden temperature differentials (eg; from the cold, open in a warm log cabin)
