  • Excerpt: If you can live with the extra size, weight, and cost, the MVC-CD1000 is an exceptionally versatile device that can outperform professional cameras. Besides a long list of functions and features, which includes a 10X optical zoom lens with electronic stabilization, what makes the MVC-CD1000 truly exceptional is its ability to save images to the safest, most stable medium going–recordable CDs.

  • Conclusion: Here's my rating of the Sony MVC-CD1000: (2 megapixel ultra zoom class) A few other reviewers have been as brave as to say that mini CD-R will be the future of storage in digital cameras. I'd have to place myself on the other side of that fence. Don't get me wrong, there's a place for it and I'm sure the CD1000 will sell well, but there's lots of things holding mini CD-R back, not least the physical size of the CD-R mechanism (and thus the camera), its speed and battery...
  • Pros: Good image quality, typical 2 megapixel, Cheap storage, Ease of image transfer (once finalised disc will work in almost any CD-ROM drive), Big image stablised 10 x zoom lens, Excellent available controls on outside of camera, Interesting LCD viewfinder, Silent focus & zoom mechanism, One-push manual white balance, Fly-by-wire manual focus ring on lens barrel, Good selection of program modes: Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, Night, Spot etc., Excellent InfoLithium ...
  • Cons: Price ($1299) (relative), Design, Size & Weight (subjective), Slow startup, focusing and shutter lag, Auto Focus lack of "focus priority" (random focusing problems), Poor LCD frame cover (86%), Aperture priority crippled by minimum 1/30s shutter speed, Tripod Mount, Barrel distortion at wide angle, Fairly nasty chromatic aberrations at full zoom
