Difference between Sandisk Extreme and Extreme compact

I have been researching for a few days and just can’t seem to find the difference between these two cards other than price.

I just got a new camera, Canon SX260 HS today and it has the “burst” feature on it that I specifically was looking for in a new camera. 

Will I be able to use the compact card in this camera? 

Are both cards the same size?  From the pictures I see it appears that the compact is bigger.

Any help would be appreciated.  I know that the Extreme card will fit for sure, but not sure about the Extreme Compact and I would like to order a new cared as soon as I can.

Thank you.

This camera uses SD cards not compact flash. You will need to get SD cards. I have linked the sandisk compatibility tool for your reference. sandisk recommends Extreme cards also linked below. The tool says you can use cards up to 64GB.
