You said it was a museum piece, and while it may not be "state of the art" these days the image samples I posted still give it better IQ than plenty point and shoots released to this day, so that comment was nonsense. As a cheap pocketable P&S it's still a great little camera.

I said it was well behind the state of the art. It uses cards that you can only buy in a pawn shop. That makes it a museum piece.

XD cards are very easy to find and cheap, so that statement would be great if it was even remotely true.

40 bucks for 2GB here in Canada.

I can get a 64GB SDXC card for less.

Of course, no doubt you meant at the local pawn shop as discussed earlier.

You've never heard of ebay then?

We will have to agree to disagree. Enjoy your museum piece.

If you can't get great images out of an F31fd it's not the camera that's the problem.

Another specious comment. I have already stipulated that. Please spend more time reading and thinking and less time trying to sound clever.

Yes but you're contradicting yourself because if the camera is still capable of excellent image quality then it's not a "museum piece" is it, and anecdotal evidence from other posters just confirms it isn't, that's the point.
