I bought this 12/24/01, and have taken some gorgeous pics with it. I used it to take shots of electronic equipment for my web site. Fairly easy to use, likes a lot of light. The disk feature is nice in that you can snap a pic of your buddy's kids playing ball and hand them the diskette - nice touch. However, there is a price to be paid in reliability for having the disk mechanism.... Problems: This camera started giving me "format error" messages on perfectly fine disks after 7 months, which ...

I have had this Camera since November 2001. I'd bought it for selling things on ebay, but soon photography grew on me like moss. At first, the camera did seem a bit big to fit in my hands but gradually I got used to it. The image quality is pretty good, good enough for me at least. This camera is nothing professional but with the right view a beautiful photo can always turn out. This camera is my friend, and a tool for my creativity. In some ways, I do like the idea of a floppy disk but it ...

I am a new Sony Mavica 87 owner. Problems: Why can't I get the time to lock in on the screen after following the "setting the date and time" instructions? I have spent a lot of time on this but must be missing something.

This is an OK camera. Using a floppy disk for storage is nice, but doesn't work out quite as well as I'd hoped. I can get only 6 pictures per disk at the highest resolution. I bought this camera for convenence while traveling. Might be better advised to get a camera that has a lot of memory. Problems: Long lag time between pictures as camera writes image to the disk. Best you can do is about 1 picture every 3-4 seconds.
