I have just purchased a Canon Powershot A520. Any tips / tricks / advice
regarding use of this digital camera to either take or download images would
be appreciated.

I was talked into spending an extra $10 on a "faster" 128Mb card. Does such
an upgrade exist or was I just another gullible victim of a sneaky sales
pitch?

Thanks, Steve T

You may find the review at the following site
to be useful. Also you might want to look
at the accessories section where rechargable
batteries and memory cards are discussed.

Hi John and thanks for those links.

It looks as though there are different SD card speeds, so maybe I wasn't
sold a "bill of goods" after all. :)

You're welcome. In addition to rechargable
batteries (which I think you'll find to be a
worthwhile investment)...you may also want
to consider a USB card reader if your
computer or printer is not already equipped
with one.
