    Does canon S3 supports 4Gb card and also SDHC?

    Hi,
    I would like to know if canon supports 4GB or higher cards as well as SDHC cards?

    I called canon support and they told me that it can only only 2GB and no SDHC support. but they have put in the website that it will support sdhc.
    the representative told me that its not and the site has wrong info.

    Did any one actually used 4GB in their camera?

    Thanks
    Venkat

    I've used 4 as well as 8GB SDHC in mine, and they've worked perfectly. Ignore the rep, they didn't know what they were talking about.
    I have a camera. It takes pictures.

    The rep was wrong on the SDHC cards. The S3 officially supports SDHC - http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/co...&modelid=13077

    I believe they officially only support up to 2G on regular SD cards, but it will work 99% of the time. You could run into a problem if you need to do a low level format.

    This is the 4GB card I bought for my S3 a few months back. It never leaves the camera and never had any issues.

    That's the same one I bought when I got my dad his S3. He's never had any problems with it at all.

    I know someone who has purchased a 4GB SDHC Dan-Elec card from Buy.com for $28..$23 after rebate and it works fine with his camera.

    However, your computer may have trouble reading the card so if that happens you will have to purchase a card-reader..less than $10

    ^Yeah, I did need to get a new card reader, because the one I had didn't support SDHC. I could've used the camera, I just prefer not to. But I bought one that acts exactly like a thumb drive for $6.

    Check my sig. Currently using 2 150x 4gb SD cards (not SDHC). IMO this is the best setup.

    It does support SDHC cards as well, but there isn't much point when they are slower and cost more.

    4 gb cards and a Mac

    quick question: I think this has already been alluded to, but is the ability to read a high-capacity (4gb) sdhc card dependent on the card reader? If I plug the camera into my computer directly, no problem. If I use a USB or expresscard reader on my MacBook Pro, the card isn't recognized at all.

    Just wanted to make sure it's a reader issue and not a card-Mac compatibility issue...

    Yes, you would need an SDHC reader.

    Me, I have never used a card reader and really don't see the point.
