Hello from Denmark,

I'm pretty sure that I will go for the Canon Ixus 860IS/PowerShot SD870 IS

My question is, can aynone recommend a good memory card for this camera?

And thanks to Gordon for a fantastic review on youtube. Thats how I came to this forum :)

Thanks,
Steffan

If they take SD cards I think if you buy san disk you can't go wrong.

My Stepdaughter had this camera as a Christmas present from me it came with a "Freebie" 32Mb card from Canon told her not to bother with it just put in a drawer somewhere in case of emergency and use the Sandisk ones that she already had, and yes they are SD Cards.

Thank you very much for all your answers..

What about the speed for the card? Does Someone know how fast the camera is? I guess I dont need a very fast card, if the camera dont have the same speed? I have been looking at SanDisk Extreme III, but maybe that is to extreme for Canon Ixus 860IS

I just want the best card/speed for the camera..

Thanks again,
Steffan

The speed at which the Extreme III can have data written to it(20+mb/s) probably exceeds the speed at which the camera can write data so for the Ixus, the Sandisk Ultra series should be more than enough.

You dont need an extreme speed one as the camera cant take advantage of that anyway with regard to continuous shooting. If you want the speed for transfering files off the camera, then fair enough.

Thanks.

I bought the camera yesterday + extra battery + bag + 4 GB ultra II, so I can start taking pictures, and record small movies tonight when I receive it :D
