Default Compact Flash Card Compatibility

I'm considering buying a second portable digital camera for travel, but I would like to continue using my exisiting CF cards on both cameras.

If I format a CF card on my Canon G3 can I use the same cards on a different brand of camera (e.g., Nikon 3100)?

Dano, Yes you can use your CF cards in different cameras as long as you reformat it. I have switched between Canon and Nikon many times, and only had to reformat the disc in the camera for it to be good to go. Just make sure you have downloaded and saved the images before you reformat or its gone forever.
Good Luck! Bob
