    Hi,

    I want to purchase a 1GB Compactflash card for my Canon S410 and have heard
    varying opinions about the speed of compactflash cards. Does anyone have
    experience with Sandisk or Kingston in terms of speed difference?

    Thanks

    What versions? SanDisk makes several models in each capacity (as does Lexar)

    Any card over about 32x will likely be faster than your camera so you probably
    won't see much if any difference.

    http://www.robgalbraith.com/bins/multi_page.asp?cid=6007 has performance data
    for 20 cameras with a variety of cards (though not the S410) ... look at the
    data and you'll see that say doubling the card speed from 40x to 80x might mean
    as little as 5% increase in speed since the card is just waiting for the camera
    to finish.
