Summary: This has to one of the best digital cameras on the market. As an employee at a community college I had the use of this camera at all activities that we needed recorded. I found it so easy to use, download the pictures, ease of transferring to the printer, and lightweight.
Summary: I am NOT a professional photographer but I do take LOTS of photos. I was looking for a digital camera that would rival a high quality point & shoot 35mm and add the convenience of digital immediacy. THIS is it. The CD300 is not a camera for the pros, it is a Top/pro camera for the rest of us!
Pros: May have more features thatn I can learn in my lifetime...
Cons: May have more features thatn I can learn in my lifetime...
Summary: This is a simple to use, but advanced digital camera with excellent image quality. While there are many digital cameras (including other Sony's) that have great image quality, the primary advantage of this camera is that it records images directly onto a mini-cd that fits into the cd drive on any...
Pros: a bit slow when starting up or taking multiple pictures
Cons: a bit slow when starting up or taking multiple pictures
Summary: This is a great camera in most respects. It's hard to take a bad shot -- as someone who wouldn't be able to deal with all the adjustments on a real SLR, this seems to be the next best thing... good lens but the camera does the work as though its a point-and-shoot. I've taken 1000s of shots with it.
Summary: Unlike what is suggested in the features ---- this is not properly supported for mac machines!!! THIS IS MAINLY DOWN TO THE SIMPLE FACT THAT VIRTUALLY ALL MACS HAVE EITHER DRAWER OR SLOT LOADING CD DRIVES AND THE MINI CD FORMAT NEEDS TO BE SPINDLE LOADED - LOADING A MINI CD INTO A SLOT OR DRAWER...
Summary: I've had this camera for 8 months and the drive has gone out. Sony will replace it under it's parts warranty, but I have to pay a minimum of [money] for labor. This is not my idea of a decent warranty. I've done absolutely nothing to break the drive, I consider this a fault with the camera.
Summary: I started out with a Kodak digital camera and when I decided to upgrade and chose the Mavica CD300 I'd have to say it was the best decision I've made photography-wise. The resolution is enough for just about any situation I've printed 8x10 photos that you can't tell from regular photographs.
Summary: I was hoping that this camera was good enough that I could throw away my SLR and stop paying for film and developing. Unfortunately, after using it for four months now, I can say that it's not that good. Here's the problem... the pictures all come out blue.
Summary: I purchased this camera because of the virtually unlimited storage capacity that eliminates the need to download images to your PC while traveling. Overall I'm very pleased with its performance and the quality of the images.
Summary: I've never gone wrong buying Sony products EVER. This is just another great purchase. The images are stunning, even in the smaller, standard resolutions. Why CD? For me, it's the final destination for the image. I don't need to go from memory stick and burning it to A CD.
