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.
