I own a fleet of Canon AE-1 Programs with enough lenses to start my own store, but for just plain fun and quick shots, it would be tough to beat the FD-90. It has a decent lens and for what I paid for it new, I'm satisfied with the resolution and the ease of operation. It's short on features, long on convenience. Flash works reasonably well, color balance is a little yellow even adjusted for indoor lighting. I love the fact that it shoots onto a floppy. (Turned out not to be such a good ...

hello, we have been using this camera for over more then a year now, and shot over 10,000 pictures with it. it's not high in resolution, but the picture-quality isn't all that bad. we make pictures on outdoor locations, for a kind of fetish-fashion style. we are somehow pleased with it, but are looking for something more because the camera has its limits. for indoor shots we find it awfull, can't seem to get the flash working well. sometimes we find it hard to get the rigt white balance ...

I've taken over 15,000 hi-res photos with this camera and it was broken in my carry on luggage on the airplane! It has suburb imaging of the top 15% of the tonal range and great zoom and macro. The flash extended to 20 feet and when I needed a fill flash I could force it. Pretty good for a light camera. I had to write my own VB software to put the time and date stamp in the filename. IF Ch Conley STILLS WANTS TO SELL HIS CAMERA CONTACT ME AT MACMARK@COMCAST.NET PLEASE! Problems: After about ...

As with everyone else, it's way too slow with the mem stick adaptor. Nowadays, it's a good deal. I paid way too much for it a year and a half ago. Seems like you need just the right lighting for outdoor shots. Any bit of sunlight in front of you will significantly wash the picture. You need to be real steady with your hands while taking the picture, or it will blur, especially in the night mode. All in all, I've taken 1000+ quality photos. I use the 550 battery, which can last up to 5+ hours ...

I bought this camera due to the rising cost of film processing. The idea was to get a point and click for family shots. I have just sold my 35 mm Nikon set up due to the fact I never use it any more. The Sony works well no problems yet!! It is slow and is not the highest resolution, but the trade off is worth it compared to 35 mm. To those who say its bulky, I like that I have Large hands and find the new breed of compact camera very fidly. Problems: No problems at all had it over 8 months. ...

I've used the FD90 for just over a year and here are some of my comments: 1. All pictures are taken at maximum resolution. Don't even consider using the 640X480 mode, the pix are lousy. 2. I use the floppy adapter with a 32 meg Memory Stick. The batteries cost $1.96 at Wal-Mart, so there is no high cost involved here. Can get over 100 hi res pix on the stick. 3. Set up to take fine and, in most cases, the flash at low. 4. Use a good editing program such as Adobe 6 or Picture It! if ...

OK, you have to use disquettes, because and old computer you don't want to upgrade. This is the best Mavica choice ofr an easy-to-use, hassle-free camera. Good: 4X disquette drive, 8X zoom, great macro feature, more than decent built.in flash, external flash connector, great TFT screen, compact body, amazing battery system, manual-focus ring. However... Problems: Lack of aperture or shutter speed controls, barrel distorsion in wide angle lens setting, very expensive accesories, too much jpeg ...
