Default Sandisk 512MB Ultra II Compact Flash Card

Can anybody tell me if the Sandisk Ultra II CF card will work with the Canon S400? I do not know if the Ultra II is Type 2 card or not . How can you tell?

I doubt it's a type-2 card, but I don't know for sure. Type two cards are thicker (twice as thick?)

Do you realize that that card is wasted on that camera? The camera won't write fast enough to take advantage of the speed that card offers. Now, if you are planning ahead for getting a newer/better camera in the future... or will use the card with other devices (MP3 player, file transfer between laptop and desktop computer...) then it could be worth it for you.

But any card over about 12-16x will not be fully utilized with that camera.

Thanks for the reply. I am not tied to the Canon S400. I was looking at it strictly for recreational use during my honeymoon to Hawaii. I liked it because mainly because of its size and durability. I plan on taking numerous hiking trips into Waimea and Hana. As such I was going to carry it in a Backpack or Buttbag and thought it met the criteria well. If there are other suggestions I would love to hear them.

The Ultra II cards are type 1 and will work with the S400 which only takes a type 1 card.

On the Sandisk site:
"All CF cards from SanDisk are Type I format, including SanDsik Ultra II CompactFlash cards."
