Best brand/size for SD memory card

After poring over the many choices and seemingly infinite amount of useful advise out there, I have just purchased my first digital camera: Canon PowerShot SD400 (5mp). So. Now I need a bigger memory card than the 16MB provided. We will be traveling and I don't want to carry tons of stuff (thus the purchase of tiny camera vs. lugging the big 35mm SLR). I have been reading some of the comments and noticed that it might be better to get two 512MB vs 1GB... Any help with a preferred brand of SD memory cards, size would be appreciated. I tend to take lots of shots of the kids/scenery and would like to try the video clip mode. (Tired of carrying many different cameras for 30sec of video here and there) Also, any other recommended accessories for travel. Thanks!
