It really doesn't matter. I've used everything from very small brands to the big ones. I personally like Lexar the best as I've never had any trouble with them.

What I'd recommend is if you want a 2GB card, get 2 1BG SD cards instead. I never like to keep all my photos on one card because if something goes wrong, you're screwed. So anytime I was going on a big, long trip where I knew I'd go through hundreds of shots, I'd take several smaller cards with me.

I agree. I took about 2GB worth of cards with me to Africa b/c I was so paranoid one would become corrupt or get lost or stolen. Also, if you use a card reader, then if your card is out and you want to quick snap a pic, or if you forget that the card is in the reader, you have a second card to keep inside the camera.

Went with the Canon Powershot 550. Hope it was a good move. Couldn't pass up the $140 price.

Thanks for the tips on the cards. I never would have thought of it. I will probably order them sometime this week

Sheesh! You can get 1GB SD cards for $9.99 on newegg. When I bought my camera three years ago, I got a 1GB card for $60 and that was a deal.

I know - it's shocking! That's why I posted to make sure I was not going crazy. I think I'll pick up a couple of 1GB SD's at $5.69. Can't go wrong there!

Maddy took some pics on the 4th. When I have time, I will have to load the software and her pics. Probably a few days, as this is my main work computer

Lila, I also posted this for Maddy in the pics thread....

You can also do it without the software. My new computer hasn't had the Canon software on it yet. You can plug the cord into the computer and a box should come up...choose the Microsoft Picture Viewer and then you can load the pics. Or, if you go into My Computer, you will see your camera there, double click it, then click Get Pictures From Camera in the top left corner.
