Hi,
I would like to ask about differences between Sandisk Extreme III cards.
I wonder if Sandisk Extreme III cards work with Canon Powershot G9.
Is it better to have 8GB or 4GB cards, does it affect the batery life?

Also, I am confused about differences between Sandisk Extreme III cards(
SDHC http://www.sandisk.com/Products/Item(2525)-SDSDRX3-8192-901-SanDisk_Extreme_III_SDHC_8GB_Card_with_MicroMate_R eader.aspx

and
Compact Flash

thank you,
kris.

They are two entirely different cards. One is a SDHC and the other is a CF.

All camera that use a SD cannot necessary use a SDHC, chech the literature that came with your camera.

The CF is a completely different card altogether.

I checked Sandisk website for compatibility and both cards are compatible with Canon G7.
Canon G9 is not listed maybe because it is a new camera and Canon didn't update the website.

I still don't understand the differences between the cards. I just orderered the camera so I don't have any manual.
thanks for reply.
