Im shopping for a 2GB SD card for my new Canon S3. I currently have (2) 1GB SD cards, Kingston brand. These cards are standard SD. The card I am looking at is a 2GB Kingston Elite 50X card.
Will my Canon S3 take advantage of the 50X card? If so, what aspects?

I can't say exactly how much faster it would be in burst mode (will increase FPS), but the Digic II processor can utilize and benefit with the faster memory.

Kingston is not exactly known for great memory cards or any other type memory, however some people seem to like them for some reason.
Why don't you have a look at "Ridata" they have cards upt to 150X, as do some other manufacturers, they are less costly and have a great reputation. There CD's and DVD's are among the absolute best you can get.

By the way, 50x is at the bottom of the speed scale.

Where do you get that Kingston is not well known for its memory cards? Kingston is one of the few companys that offer a Lifetime warranty. Ive never had problems with Kingston.

Take a look at Newegg. Almost all Kingston cards are 5 star, some are 4 star rating.
