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.
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: This camera has all the options that i was looking for and the ease of use.The camera will almost run itself and with the dual storage system you have a number of ways to take and share your pictures on it. The 20X telescoping part is very useful when viewing birds and other animals out in thier natural invironment really helps so that they are not agitated in any way. This is a very affordable and economy minded camera.
Excerpt: es muy buena, y muy fácil de usar la resolucion es bastante buena para el modelo de camara y la antigüedad solo que ya es un poco vieja su tecnología de disquettes y aunque acepta el adaptador de memory stick como quiera se alenta la grabacion de fotos con la maxima resolucion. otro pequeño detallito es que con el adaptador de memory stick solo permite grabar 15 segundos de video, en cambio con disquette permite mas tiempo de grabacion.
Pros: es muy sencilla de manejar
Cons: es muy lenta al grabar fotos de maxima resolucion
Summary: Die Kamera liegt preislich im oberen Consumerbereich, bietet aber schon einige Profifeatures, die man jedoch nicht nutzen muß. Hier paaren sich Sony, was für einfache Bedienung steht, und dafür eine ausgewogene Mischung zu verkaufen, also keinen Schrott einzubauen, ohne daß es richtig teuer wird, und ein hochwertiges Carl Zeiss Objektiv, was man nicht wechseln kann, will ich auch nicht.
