I have a

Canon PowerShot S3 IS.

I received it as a gift.

I am going to use it mostly for taking pictures of my son's baseball, basketball, etc games.

My wife also wants to use the movie feature for putting together a video of the inside of homes she is selling in real-estate.

I have read that SDHC Memory cards are a good option for what I need.

Any comment on the type of memory that would be good for this type action that will not be too pricey?

I found this on the Canon site.
click faq's on this link and then go to 10. What size or type of memory card can I use in my camera?

I'd buy a Sandisk microsd card 2GB for $40-$50

Hopefully someone else will have an opinion too.
I have the Canon Powershot A700
