knows about the success of the Sony Mavica line of digital cameras.
People love floppy-based cameras for the convenience of a cheap,
universal storage format. They forget about the slow read/write
speeds, and minuscule size of the floppy, and plop down nearly $1,000
for the privilege to own a floppy-based camera. Panasonic caught
on, and said, "why not use Imation's SuperDisk format, which
holds 120MB per disc!", and the PV-SD4090
was born (see our review).
Pros: SuperDisk media - low cost per megabyte, Uncompressed TIFF mode, Movie mode with sound
Cons: Photo quality disappointing, Slow access speeds, Clunky menu interface, Overpriced at $1099, It's too big and heavy, Unsure of SuperDisk benefit (aside from cost/MB)
