Default Does The Canon S50 supports +256MB Cards ?

I've recently purchased the S50, and I was wondering if the camera supports 256MB CF Cards...
i've been in a store today and I was told that the camera doesn't support more than 256MB .. :shock: :roll:
is that true ?
i've seen here on the review that you used bigger size CF's and MicroDrives... and got me all confused.

Please Help in this Question,
Thanks in advance,
Chevy.

This is directly from the dpreview.com site:

"The PowerShot S50 is compatible with CompactFlash memory cards type I and II, including the IBM Microdrive , and is compliant with FAT32 for the use of cards with a capacity of over 2GB. The camera is supplied with a 32MB CF card, rechargeable lithium ion battery pack (NB-2L), battery charger and connecting cables. "

When we reviewed the S50 we used all sorts of CF cards including 512MB, 640MB and a 1GB card - worked fine with all.

I'd love a 2Gb card!

I can't afford one right now. But when I get some cash I'm getting one

Drool, that would allow you to store about 583 RAW photos!

Or about 1250 photos highest quality jpeg.

Or about 2326 at medium quality.

Or about 4690 photos at medium quality, 1600x1200.

Drool, drool

Batteries really just depends on how long you're spending standing around without taking photos.

I don't tend to leave the camera on unless I'm shooting.

I have a 256mb card and I can easily fill it up 2 or 3 times without the battery running down.

I wouldn't imagine having to charge the batteries more than onece maybe if I had a 2gb memory card.

Really, battery life doesn't make much difference because no matter how big your storage memory is, you're always going to have the same opportunities to recharge the battery as you did before, so you're always going to spend exactly the same amount of time with the camera turned on as you did before. It just means that in that time you can take more photos. So nothing changes with regards to battery life.

I dont' think actually taking photos uses up much more power than just leaving your camera turned on.

I did not receive a battery charger with my S50.
