Summary: This product is actually pretty stright forward in its operation. Read the manual to understand the different settings but once again it was actually pretty simple. Seems a little bulky to look at but feels comfortable and stable in hand, elimiating the shaking you sometimes get with other cameras. Alsa has a setting to eliminate the shaking effect.
Summary: We have owned this same camera for over 5 years and enjoy the ease of use and the quality of picture it produces. It has all the features we need. The weight is sufficient to keep the operator from shaking the camera when pressing the shutter release, unlike the light weight palm cameras do.
Summary: The Maveca is an excellent camera, which takes great pictures. The zoom and steady cam features make great shots easy to execute. The recording process vice a shutter release takes some getting used to, particularly when taking action shots. All in all an excellent value in a digital camera.
Summary: Wow! This camera is so easy to master. Just follow the instructions. It takes the most amazing pictures. It's a little slow processing using floppys, and if you use high resolution settings, you only get 2 to 4 pics per floppy. If you're not interested in real high resolution pics, you can get 20 to 30 pics per floppy. Memory sticks are the way to go. They process quickly, and depending the size of the sticks used, you can get hundreds of high resolution pics per stick.
An affordable digital SLR with top of the line features. What a workhorse!

Summary: The FD97 is an older camera, but it was the top of the line then and today is a digital SLR that's affordable on an entry level budget. The CCD is large, even though its not very high megapixel, and the lens is truly amazing. It produces very high quality shots, and has features like external flash sync, manual modes for most everything, and the eyepiece you'll only find on an SLR - great for sunny outdoor shots. Put auto stabilization with that and I've fallen in love.
Summary: Excellent easy to use camera, perfect for taking picture and selling on ebay, If you are considering setting up to sell on ebay without spending big$$$ This is my third Mavica,previous ones were a 91 and 95, the model 97 is the last production model and the best of the Mavica series
Summary: I have been looking for this type of camera since I droppoed mine and it quit working. The gentleman that sold me this one is the type of person with honesty and integrity. I would buy anything from this man if he stated it was good quality! Greg Denk Sr.
Summary: This is one of the best as it has a memory stick in addition to the floppy disk. These Sony cameras take real clear pictures and can take clear distant shots both from their zoom and their anti-shake ability.
Summary: I've had this camera since 2001 and it still takes great pictures (it's also nice to see the price (used) is close to what I paid for it new back then). The only drawback I'm now finding is uploading pictures to Windows Vista. Sony hasn't (at this point) made updated drivers available for this particular model, hence my Windows Vista-based laptop doesn't recognize the camera when attempting to upload images.
