I don't know what is the difference between the two types but there is only $9 price difference from dell, http://accessories.dell.com/sna/Prod...ctlisting.aspxand http://accessories.dell.com/sna/Prod...ctlisting.aspx . I plan to use the card to take pictures and maybe movies. I would hope the card would like the card to last for a few years.

Also there is another regular one listed that is $20 more than the other regular one. http://accessories.dell.com/sna/Prod...ctlisting.aspx . Is there a difference between the two.

speed prolly.

i.e. how fast can your camera write out data? my canon 350d can use ultra IIs or extreme IIIs sandisks. I use 2 gig cf cards in it. at hi res I can put 518 on a card. at normal res I can write around 900 photos to it.

I don't know how fast the camera writes out data. This is my first digital camera.

I use a regular speed 512mb SD drive with my S2. Although the camera can write faster than the card can handle, I have never experienced that I wish my card was faster. The buffer only fills up after 25 or so max detail images, after which I experience a slowdown. 640x400 30fps video also poses no problem

Are you using a SanDisk card in your S2?

If is $9 difference, get the UltraII. Canon needs high speed cards for Movies files, though UltraII could be an overkill, its better then to get a normal speed card thatMAYcut shortthe moive recording.....Also if you download to PC via card readers, it will be fasterif your card reader is also fast. Cheers.
