Default Lexar 256mb 12x Compact Flash Card

Does the Lexar 256mb 12x Compact Flash Card work well with the Canon Powershot S400?

Is Lexar better than Sandisk?

Which is the best Compact Flash Card brand?

Does anyone know what write speed the Canon Powershot S400 has? I would like to match my compact flash card with the camera.

Thankyou for your response, it is greatly appreciated.

I use a few different brands, and other than getting a complete lemon from SimpleTech, they all work just fine. I've got a Lexar that's supposedly faster than the others, but if there's a difference, it's minisule.

The only true matching you have to do is making sure you buy cards that haven't more storage than your camera can handle--some cameras are rated for no more than a certain number of megabytes. So if your camera can only use up to 256mb, you wouldn't want to buy a card with 512mb.

Other than that, you're free to buy whatever you like. I'd stay away from unknown brands, but that's just me.

from what i know of the s400, the 12x card should be about "just right" as the industry "standard" for consumer digicams is very close to that. hope that helps
