Hi all,

Want to know what is the difference btw Compact Flash & Secure Digital card? Browsed thru lot of reviews and comparisons. But as a novice user would like to know in simple terms. I have bought Canon A95. So here follows my questions:

Canon A95 specs say that it needs Type 1 card.

1.Should I only buy Compact Flash Type 1 card.

2.A friend of mine told that Compact Flash Type II Card will work. Is that true?

3. Are there any advantages of using Secure Digital Card? I guess it is more expensive... what benifits do i get using it?

I am looking at a cost effective memory.

Thanks in Advance,

Hi Srinath, simple answer - you can only use a Type I CF card with a Canon A95. You can't use a Type II CF or a SD card.
