    Hi all,

    I'm going to be purchasing a Canon PowerShot G5 soon and figured that I wanted to pick up another memory card (Currently, I have a Nikon Coolpix 775 (around 2MP) in which I bought a Lexar 64MB card and have another 8MB card by Nikon, totalling 72MB all together). Both of those cards are CompactFlash, and I figure I should get another one. Because this camera is expensive, I'm wondering if there's a favorable brand of memory cards that are considered better than others? If so, which ones? I would like to spend no more than $100 on a memory card -- is it possible to get a 256MB one for that much? Or maybe 128MB? Keep in mind I'm going to use my current 64MB card also, and I don't think I need 512MB or 1GB cards because I'm not a professional -- just someone looking to learn more about photography.

    Thanks

    I use a Kingston and Lexar Compact Flash cards with my Nikon 4300 and Canon S230. Both cards are 256mb.
