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.
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: 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.
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.
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. Overland Park, Kansas
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. Sony rechargeable battery packs and chargers that come with them seem to last a longer time
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.
Summary: When asked to take pictures at work, my wife requested the use of my FD97. Not going into a lot of detail, the first comment out of a supervisor's mouth was "look at the blood glistening on the barb wire." That says it all in picture quality.
