    How much memory should I get?

    I won a ebay auction for a Canon G5 powershot1!!

    $467 shipped from a amazing seller, but there is no memory card included.


    Im thinking about a 128mb or a 256mb flash card for it, this camera takes movies and stuff, so would a 256mb be better? Should I buy a flash card USB reader too?

    I say get the 256 or even 512 for that matter. Believe me, there's nothing worse then taking your camera somewhere shotting a few vid clips and going to take some pics and to find out your card is full. Happened to me a few times.

    for you the difference is marginal. the ultra II can theoretically sustain up to 9-10MB/sec, but that is only if the camera can keep up. if you want to save $10, you won't notice a difference. if you buy a DSLR later on (eg the Digital Rebel), you will.
