    Hi Guys. A friend of mine has a Canon A70, and for a gift I would like to purchase a memory card for her. Are all SD Cards the same, and are they all compatible with the all cameras? I know next to nothing about the digital camera world, and would greatly appreciate any help. Thanks in advance. :)

    If the memory card is the bottleneck, you can realize better performance with the faster "Extreme" or "Ultra" types of SD's. The real-world instances where you'd notice performance gains is if you do a quick multi-shot sequence and have to wait for the buffer to dump to the card. Or when you're dumping the files from teh card to the computer. Beyond that though, any brand card will pretty much function like any other brand.
