    what camera? A dlsr that uses high speed frame rates and large files would benefit from a ultra II or similar. A P&S would only need a regular. Microdrives are old and busted, they tend to break down faster and easier for the drive to go bad, where as a solid state CF card won't. Micro's use to be popular because they held so much more stoarge, but now with CF in the 4-8gig range, theres no reason.

    Costco has the ultraII for 80-90, check pricegrabber too

    just get a lexar 40x or the regular san disk, unless you do a lot of video, there no need for the ultra II really

    I dunno where you're getting your prices, but I can get a regular Sandisk branded 1gig card for $79 canadian or ~$60 US...and with your camera that's what I'd recommend.
