    I'm about to buy a new 256MB Compact Flash (CF) memory card for my Canon
    IXUS 400. I've heard that there is a speed difference between different card
    types. But will this speed difference be noticable? Will I be able to take
    several pictures in a row quicker with a faster CF card? Otherwise what's
    the benefit of buying one card instead of another?

    Finally, if there is a diference between different CF cards, which one
    should I get? Sandisk, Dane-Elec, Lexar, or some other card?

    Thanks in advance!

    It'll be somewhat faster... However, probably not worth the extra price on
    a camera like the S400.

    I'm currently using a highspeed Lexar as well as a cheap Mr. Flash card,
    both work equally as well.

    Not in your camera. It might be a bit faster in a fast computer
    1. See above.

    2. Bragging rights.
    The cheapest you can find, albeit with a decent return policy and warranty.
    FWIW, my own no name (A-1 Flash) CF card works just as well and as fast as the
    brand names.

    I found a cheap one with 10 years warranty which I'll get. Thanks for
    helping me save some $$$!
