    Does anyone know if the American spec charger for the 300D/Rebel, is 110/220v dual voltage?

    Off to the US in 3 weeks time, and plan to get one and a lens or two.

    Being a bit blonde regarding cards for the camera!

    Whats the differance between SD anc CF?

    regards

    I don't know about the charger but if its like the one for the 10D then yes it is dual voltage.

    The difference between SD and CF is that they are totally incompatible (totally different sizes). SD cards kind of look like the old SmartMedia cards. SD = Secure Digital and is nowhere near as popular a format as Compact Flash.

    So the 300D uses Compact Flash Cards right?

    I found the answer to my charger question, Canon UK and Canon USA list the charger as 100 to 220v, Model CB-5L
