I am going to purchase a Canon S2 IS. If I have a 512MB card how long of a video will I be able to record? Also, about how many pics will fit on this card if I take them at the best quality?

If your camera has a VGA video (640x480) and @30fps you can get about 8 or 9 minutes on 512 meg. That's if your camera allows continuous video. some cameras only allow 30 - 60 second video capture.
