    [FONT=tahoma, verdana, arial, helvetica]Hello,

    I'm new to the world of photography and to this forum.

    I just bought my first real digital camera - a Canon Powershot S2. I hope it's a good buy and I will be pleased with it. I also bought a Kingston Ultimate (x133) 1 gigabyte flashcard for it as well.

    I was wondering how much of a difference the speed on the cards actually make? Is there a big difference from say x 50 to x 133?

    I was also hoping that someone here could point me in the direction of some good web-site's where I can buy some of the accessories that is available for the S2? Like lenses for example.

    By the way - I paid 460$ (USD) for the camera - including post & package. Is that too much or is it a fair price?

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    the X 50 X 133 i believe could be the read / write speeds, these determine how fast your camera will be able to record data to the card and how quickly your computer takes data off it...


    as to where to get accesories im afraid i have no idea
