The S1 IS can use the faster CF cards like Ultra II or Extreme, or even the cards from Lexar WA. dpreview's write speed tests were done on a Ultra II card.

Hmm....i checked the review. He said this "With write times averaging around 1.6 seconds for a Super Fine JPEG the S1 IS is very fast for a compact camera, though at around 1MB/s it is hardly pushing the capabilities of the Sandisk card"

Of course, whether or not you need this capability is another matter (but I do)

Get anything about 20x for ur VGA Fine video mode should be ok.... other than that...i think any CF for shooting of jpeg is fine.
Don't really need the Fastest card for S1... its better to have....i would consider it as a "DESIRE" not a "NEED"
Tested SD card on CF adapter for S1.... working great...lol....
