My olympus c-5060 camera is coming in tomorrow, and I am wondering which type of memory card i should get for it?

CompactFlash is cheaper and slightly faster in the 5060. I have a 256 MB CF in the CF slot and the stock 32 MB xD in the xD slot. I think of it as a reserve tank.

Alright thanks for the quick responses on both topics :).

about how many pictures do you get with that card on highest resolution?

On the SHQ setting I get around 80 photos on a 256 MB card.

Did you mean Sandisk? If so, they are one of the major card manufacturers in the world, I've never had a problem with their products.
