Hello I just want to know anyone here got the Canon SD300 and using the NEW, STANDARD Sandisk 1 GB SD card? does it work good when the movie mode (640x480, 30fps)? or should i get the ULTRA II card? I know I know this topic keep repeating on the net over and over.. but still no one can confirm that...Thanks! :)

I purchased a 512 Sandisk Ultra II card to go along with my new SD200 and I have been nothing but happy with the results. Try to remember that the read/write speed of your card DOES factor in to how quickly the camera will be ready to take the next shot/continue filming. Also helps enormously in the fast frame rate movie mode (60 fps, cuts off at 1 min. though...arrgghh) I have read that the slower cards have to "catch up" to the camera, possibly interfering with movies? I know that a comparable card would have been cheaper but it was worth the extra 20 bones. Hope this helps!
