Default Best CF card for the Canon G3?

Just bought the new G3, and the mem card that comes with it is not sufficient for me.

Which CF card brands are most compatible for the G3?

Looking for around 512 mb.

Is type I slower than type 2?

Please advise.
Thanks!!!

Default CF cards

The compact flash that I use for my G3 is a Sandisk Ultra. With the speed of the G3 and other digital cameras that can shoot continuous frames you want to go with a fast card. With a camera that is 4 meg or bigger you also want a lot of storage.
With a 256 Ultra and the G3 on the highest setting (not RAW with RAW 64 pics) I am getting around 125 pics.

Hope this helps.

Look at the Ridata CF cards. They can be found on Ebay. Super fast and reasonable!

I agree with the above guy about the Sandisk CF card. I have a Sandisk Ultra 256; its very quick at reading and writing images. Got mine cheap from digitaldepot.co.uk - if u are in the UK.

I have a Lexmark 256 12X card. Works fine - as does the 32mb card that came stock with the g-3
