    Can anyone tell me what the max size SD card is you can use with this
    camera? There is no information on Canon's website regarding this, which I
    thought was strange.

  2. There's probably no limit.

    Cameras that use MMC media have a maximum size card, because the card is
    just bulk storage with the controller in the camera, and the controller
    is designed for up to a certain maximum size.

    But SD cards, like CF cards, behave like a disk drive and have their own
    on-board controller. So they're not affected by the same limit as MMC.

    Some older Canon cameras couldn't use a single card larger than 2 GB
    because that's the limit for the FAT16 file system. But all recent
    Canons, starting with the G3, can handle FAT32 and thus essentially
    unlimited file size.
