what CF card for a canon powershot s60

Archived from groups: alt.comp.periphs.dcameras (More info?)

ok just got my hands on my first digital camera, the canon powershot
S60.
Very nice impressed so far, paid £319 p.a.p all in from
www.cameras2u.com
Anyway i'm looking for a larger CF card like 1gig if possible, like i
said this is the very first digi cam and first time using CF cards so
need some help.
Can anybody point me to a nice big 1gig card that can be used in the
powershot S60.
I've also heard there is 2 types of CF cards type I and type II
can anybody tell me if the 2 types of cards will work in the powershot
S60
I've been looking at the Lexar 1GB 80x Professional Compact flash Card
from ebuyer

as to be a uk site if i'm ordering anything
any feed back is welcome

    I don't believe the S60 can make use of fast CF cards such as this. So save
    yourself some money and buy a slower 1GB card like:

    canon love micro drives, a 512 micro drive will set you back £45 on
    e,bay it will give you 212 full quality pictures ! and they never lose
    the pictures, unlike some cheap cf cards

    Thanks alan for the fast reply.
    The S60 can still use the Lexar 1GB 80x Professional Compact flash
    Card but doesnt get anymore benefit from it right??????

    Anybody got anymore insight on this subject
