Your Canon S50 is a 5megapixel digital camera and can take high quality digital images.

See this link for the memory usage:

On a Large/Fine setting it captures files @ 1.395 MB giving you 88 images on a 128MB CF card and 177 images on a 256MB card.

Like a hard drive on a computer the larger the memory of the Compact Flash (CF) card the more images you can store on it.

Thank you David.
Still do not know the Type I, Type II difference? Which one is a better choice?
Sandisk, Kingston, or so on...

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
