Summary: I purchased this camera as a replacement and it works beautifully. I have stacks of Mini CDs both finalized and non-finalized. I figured there would be lost to history but thanks to ebay - I have retrieved them!
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 use this for close up macro shots. ideal for 'smalls'. media is cheap.probably why sony went away from it! love the fact you can have a hard copy of you pictures or videos. this camera was 1000.00 when it came out. Don't take pictures with it plugged in thru the charge cord. it will burn out the drive. took me a couple of these cameras to figure that hitch out! it a great camera for outdoor zoom wildlife too. not great for indoor shots. it's a 'specialty' camera.
Summary: This is an excellent camera. I now own two. My first one is the floppy disk F95. Great pictures and broad settings available. 10X optical zoom is handy. My new, just purchased from Ebay, CD1000 has all the same great features plus the newer CD (3" compact disk) for storage. Very large capacity for photos. Much less hassle getting at photos later. Drop the CD into the computer - it is easy and fast. I love it. I paid $1,100.00 for the 95 retail about fifteen years ago.
Summary: This is my second MVC CD1000. Bought it for a back up since I cannot be without one. Nothing wrong with my first one, but I would hate to have to buy a new (mini) digital camera as they are so small that I can barely hold them in my hand. Sony has a terrific telephoto lens on this model. The physical size of the camera is just right. I do not like mini cameras that can be easily misplaced or lost. I can see no reason to go to a 5 Megapixel camera.
