    Can anyone advise me what is the speed of a 32 Mb (FC-32MH) Compact Flash
    card that is supplied with the latest Canon Ixus 5 Megapixel camera? The
    card has "high speed" written on it but doesn't say what speed. I notice
    that Lexar has a card they say is "4X" and others up to (I think) 40X but I
    want to make sure that if I get one it will match the spec of the camera -
    i.e. no point in paying top dollar for a super speed job if the camera won't
    support the additional speed. On the other hand, I am happy with the FC-32MH
    speed and don't want to buy a card that is slower than it - just more

    Any help would be appreciated.

    You can make use of the extra speed by buying a stand-alone
    card reader. These usually attach to a USB port. In many
    cases they are a good bit faster than the camera at download.
