Excerpt: Sony Mavica MVC-CD1000 digital camera is my favorite camera.I have had and have many different cameras. I love photography and I am really into taking pictures. I like to add special effects and do many different things with my photos. I do not like the conventional film camera where you have to have the film developed to get your pictures. I love the convenience of this camera.
Summary: I love this camera. This is the camera that has converted me from using standard film to "going digital." Without the cost restraints of standard film or the space restraints that digital camera memory place upon the number of pictures I take I feel free to take as many pictures of I want at no risk. This results in far more pictures per event than I would normally have taken. The automatic aspects of the camera work great.
Summary: I'm digitally challenged yet I opened the box and was shooting within a careful hour's worth of reading. A few more days pratice gave me the nerve to put Sony's Big Mama into the hands of my high school students. It's frustrating to see them learn in minutes what took me an hour to learn...but.. They did! And they started discovering features I hadn't yet mastered. I short, I love this camera!
My Sony Mavica MVCCD1000 Digital Camera...Still is Best...!

Summary: Although I have had my Sony Mav CD1000 for only a few months, I have learned several important things... It is very good for stills, but action shots are left better to chance. The shutter seems to be delayed about one second, therefore, your moving object will not be in the picture as you first saw it (in "Still" mode). Email format is good, while maintaining full JPEG file sizes. Still images are wonderful and the digital zoom is incredible.
Summary: You can't believe it! The looks of envy from other camera owners is just the start. Using this camera is pure joy. I've taken 293 pics so far on the 1st of 5 discs included.I've found that the 640 x 480 resolution looks perfect for emails, web site use and printing, and at that resolution I can get over 1000 pictures per disc.
Summary: I've had mine for over a month and shot 4 disks full. Many of the shots are amazingly good (I'm the one amazed) and the instant feedback so you can show your subject the picture is a real plus. We took the grandkids for a Christmas tree light tour the other night and when we got back, we just connected the CD1000 cable to the TV set and there were the Christmas lights for my daughter and son in law to see, with the grandkids filling in the play by play.
Summary: The Mavica CD1000 is as good as it sounds. The 10x optical zoom is terrific (don't bother with 'digital zoom'. If you want pixelation, you'd be using a low-res camera). The 'steady shot' works well, the 'twilight-plus' flashless function is no less than magical (although you will need a tripod). And it's just plain cool! The best thing about it is the cost/picture. You need the battery that comes with it, (maybe a backup -I got a 4 hour for less than ...

Summary: I,myself, use to take photos with 35mm film-based cameras a lot since I was 12. I had a chance to test and try several digital cameras from 1 Megapixel to 3 Megapixel but never own one. I prefer something similar to my SLR cameras not an instant camera. So I decide to buy this sony,well, I have this camera since May 2001. At first, I had to adjust myself to get along with control panel, electronic viewfinder.
Summary: I've had this camera for 4 months now and could not be more delighted. Recording photos on the 3" disc is what separates this camera from the rest. At the highest reolution you can take 150 pictures on one disc - amazing. You now have a permanent record without any need to take up any computer space. You can put it on "picture show" and look at every photo on your projection TV and they all look great. If you don't like the angle-rotate the photo.
Summary: Welp, I have owned a few cameras in the past couple of years and once I saw this one writing onto little compact discs, I was ready to jump all over this one. I must admit, at first I was a little dismayed by the reviews I saw in here about it being horribly slow at recording and so on. I was also dissapointed to see the 15-60 second limit on recording time. However, as soon as I pulled this one together and took it out, I was absolutelty thrilled.
