you don't need a massive one for the 350D, i use to get by on a 2gb for my old old 300D...

thing is nowdays its impossible to get anything below 4gigs haha so you might actually want to have a look at like courts or harvey norman that kind of deal and see if they have some older, smaller cards..
speed isnt really important i wouldnt say since you shooting at most what like 3fps? and i don't reckon the 350D is umda compliant anyway... so like 133x maybe even 300x if you can find should be fine..

Try Best Bargain @ Sim Lim, among the cheapest for memory cards. I'm not too sure if there is a limit for the 350D, but my friend has used an 8GB on it with no problems.

can be used no worries, but its not really necessary... the camera was designed and created in a time when 4gb was pretty much the highest capacity you can get so if you want to be practical just use that...
