I have never heard of a Whiz Bang Card. My camera takes a Compact Flash Card. They are expensive. I have made peace with it. You should too. I buy mine from Walmart.

Depends on the card I have CF and SD cards. Usually Google and find the best price Amazon usually but have found a few deals at Office Depot for SD's. You need to look for the "sweet spot" in size 2-4gb cards are plenty big and cost much less than the mega cards. Also better to spread your images between a couple of cards just in case of a failure. Hope this helps.

Hi Everyone,

I am very interested in purchasing one (or two) of these cards. I have a Canon Powershot A580. It has a card in the battery compartment designated Canon MMC=plus
MMC-32MH. Is it likely that one of the flash memory cards can operate in this camera? If so which of the 4GB cards would you recommend from those on this page?

Thanks in advance for any advice/guidance on this matter. I really need extra space for photos.

Best regards,
Frank_S

I purchased 2 of the 8GB Kingston cards from Buy.com. They were $12.95 each, but I had a free shipping promo so that was total cost.

Best regards and thanks,
Frank_S
