Default Max Memory Card sizes for Canon 400D & 40D

Sorry if this is a silly question, but I had been led to believe that the Canon 400D could only take up to a 2GB MC. Is this true

Also, is there a limit to what the 40D can take. There are some mammoth cards appearing on the market now

No it's not. Should be able to swallow a 16 GB easily, although earlier models (5D, 30D) could only format those in-camera to 8 GB. They worked OK with the card if formatted in computer IIRC.

all canon cameras that support fat32 will let you use 12/16gb cards, but only 1dmkIII and 40d will format them. i used a 12gb in my xt (good for 1500 RAW files) and in my mkIII (good for max of 850)

I can use a 8gb Sandisk Extreme III in both my 400D and 40D with no issue. Only problem with it in the 40D is it only shows 3 digits in the top info screen so for your first few hundred shots it will say [999] which can get annoying however pressing INFO brings up the remaining number of shots on the LCD screen.

I wonder if that new 64gig card I just ordered will work in my 40D... it's for the 7D, but it'd be nice to know.

I just put a 16GB card in 20D and it's working fine as a 16GB one.
