    I have been thinking of buying Canon A80 camera and 256-512 Mb
    Compact Flash memory card depending of the price.

    My "needs" for the camera:
    - price group 300-500 euros
    - 4 Mpix
    - good size
    - movable display
    - necessary manual functions in addition to automation
    - pretty good optics in this price and size groups (I assume?)
    - also possibilities for video recordings

    Now I wish some comments about the camera; do you have any good
    "competitors":

    * Now the lowest price for the camera is 417 euros in Finland, are the
    camera with that price ok in your opinnion?

    I also need a new Compact Flash memory card. Does the Compact Flash Ultra
    card work with the camera (Canon's web says the memory card type for this
    camera is Compact Flash)?

    I have understood that Sandisk memory cards are some sort of slow... (?) I
    also want to record video clips with my camera without any errors and
    problems because of lousy mem card. Can you recommend some memory card
    manufacturers which don't have this "being slow -problem"?

    Thank you for your time!

    - Olli
