Re: 1 gig Lexar 80X cards are $99

My understanding from reading the manufacturer's specs is that the 40X and 80X cards use a technology called Write Acceleration. If your camera doesn't have it you don't benefit in any way. And Canon is not listed as a compatible manufacturer on the Lexar web site. So save your $$

For the difference in price - and you get a $20 rebate now until
the end of the year - why get a slower card? Shop the web.
