    Well...it depend which cam u using....if u using just a norm P&S cam, just get a norm speed card can liao....coz even if u purchase a super high speed card, u also won't be able to utilise the full speed actually...

    My opinion....
    1) Sandisk, Lexar
    2) 1G
    3) As cheap as possible....but eastgear got quite a good price for the cards...

    btw some cams like Ixus 30/40/50/700 will need a high speed card (> 40x) to record unlimited videos....so it also depend whether ur cam got this function and whether u want to take videos also...

    like you i thought my Dynax 7D will max out using a 80x Lexar WA 2GB, but i was quite stunned that the new Sandisk Ultra III 2GB dunno whats the speed rating... when i shoot continuous on the Dynax 7D, the buffer actually clear off very fast, something like Lexar takes 4 sec, Sandisk takes about 1 sec to clear of the buffer. my next card would be an Ultra III, provided i got money..

    that's right.. the ultra III has a higher transfer speed than Lexar. Not many reads datasheets like me and most depend on advertised numbers like 80X. If I didn't read the datasheets.. I won't even know

    But it's my job to read datasheets almost everyday...

    PS: it's rated like 133X some where on the web. Taking DCA's rough estimate for an example (sandisk vs lexar), 133/80 = 1.7 times faster (approx 2). From about <4 secs to clear buffer down to 1sec odd.. is also close to 2 times faster. I would say the 133X rating is pretty accurate
