Have owned the 95 for 4 months, shooting over 1,000 pics in that time. Traded from 71 and 81 (occasional availability). Ease of use is about normal, the 5-way control button (4 arrows plus middle to confirm) is not my favorite, but it reduces clutter on the camera. Otherwise, the function controls are about average. AE features and white balance move this camera into a higher class of unit, adding versatility and power that a novice point-and-shoot user may not initially take advantage of, ...

I've had my FD-95 for about a week now. I toyed around wth many other thoughts and ideas about other cameras, but kept coming back to a Mavica for the floppy format ease of use. The CD-1000 was actually the best thing that could have happened to the FD-95 -- by dropping the price of the FD-95! I must admit that the CD-1000 made me stop and pause -- but I really wasn't interested in the extra time it takes to record each image -- and not being able to delete a photo made no sense. ...

I have moved through the Mavica series from the 51 and this is my 5th model. It is a major let down from the FD-91. To say the least I am disapointed. I have used the camera since June, taken at least 5000 pictures, and figure I have waited 13.8 extra hours for the file to process. The goods and bads for me are: 1. Loss of the flip up wiewer for odd angle pictures. A major set back. 2. Very slow picture to picture speed with the memory stick. About 13 seconds. If there is action, it gone by ...

Wished they would have kept the FD-91 features and just added to them. Down side: Sutter Speed-unfortunate that it only goes up to 500, 14x1 optical zoom much better than 10 optical 10 digital, Non real time view thru View finder and LCD just to slow and jerky for action photography. Up Side: Higher Quality photos, Video out, Memory stick option, external flash sync. Problems: NO Problems, just miss the faster shutter speed and 14x1 zoom.

This is an upgrade from an FD91. Seems to handle better in most situations. So far having 1/500 vs 1/4000 has not been an issue. The 4x floppy drive works well, and in most cases, the FD2 Memory Stick adapter performs very well, too. The biggest differance I've noted is an improved flash system. Problems: None.
