Sony Mavica FD-200 review

For the type of camera this is, it's pretty decent. Even though it's only 2 megapixels it takes pretty good, sharp photos with good lighting. Very easy to use with floppy disks and the memory stick slot is great for when you want to store alot of photos. Battery life is about 80-90 minutes with constant use.
Since it is now March 2005 and this camera has been discontinued by Sony, you can find great deals on it as I did.

Problems:

Every once in a while when zooming out, the zoom button doesn't seem to "catch".
The white balance seems to favor the cooler side with auto white balance.(Whites look a little blue) Lens is dark. (f3.8-f3.9)
Camera is pretty big and floppy disks don't hold many photos.(4 in highest quality mode)
All in all, this type of camera is great for someone that doesn't take alot of pictures and would prefer the convenience of storing the photos on a floppy disk.
