Summary: Rating due to Errors messages lately. I have multiple Mavica Cameras from when they first came out using the 3.5 disc. Love, loved loved them. 300, 250, 400 and now 500. HOWEVER. Lately I am getting error messages in the midst of taking pictures. I was taking pictures at a graduation and had three Mavica with me.... error messages on every single disc I am using. I truly don't know what is going on. Suggest you research this issue before purchasing. Just a suggestion.
Summary: i bought camera because my other one was broke so i had all the other stuff that went along with the camera. i just needed a camera. and it works fine. they said the flash didn't work but i found out why. and it works fine now.
Summary: The Sony Mavica was suggested by a colleague for product photography. I still have not used the camera because I continue to grab the small Kodak digi cam that I planned on replacing. I have gotten so spoiled with the small size and ease of use of my Kodak that I am finding it difficult to pull out the Sony with all the bits and parts that I purchased to use with it: slave flash, several filters all the stuff like I had for my Canon SLR.
