I have used my FD-95 since I first bought it. Not sure of the year, but it was soon after they first became available. I LOVE this camera. Although it is a little bulky, I don't really mind because it LOOKS like a much more expensive camera (I paid just in excess of $2000, including taxes, here in Canada). However even though by today's standards, it has a very low megapixel rating, I am able to take the most fabulous pictures with it. You can see some of them at my photo website: ...

I have done just about everything with a full 35mm outfit. I was looking for something that was comfortable and compatable. I found this camera to be great. It does everything I need. I still use the 35mm but I will grab this first and put it to use. It lacks in speed shooting and low light but all its other features make up for it. Problems: The Mpeg mode leaves alot to be desired. I have yet to find it of any real value. Still shots and landscapes as well as family photos makes this ...

I have owned the FD-95 since Jun 01 - I have found it an excellent camera for vacations and family get-togethers. Excellent image quality which lets me print 5x7 pictures that match 35mm quality. A couple of handy additions are some close-up and wide-angle lens adapters and a set of Cokin filters - the adapter screws into the lens threads which lets me get some nice "effects" shots - soft-focus, center spot etc. Problems: The manual is about as skimpy as it gets - and it read like japanese ...

I've had this camera for about a year and it has performed flawlessly. The image quality is extremely good considering the compression of jpg to about 350k in high res mode. I do alot of nature photography in the Rockies and the drawback or nuisance issue is that because of the intense sunlight at high altitude, you have to cup your left hand over the viewfinder as you look through it to prevent the peripheral light from turning the viewfinder off. A feature I miss is not being able to ...

I purchased this camera about 3 months ago and I just love it.I rented a 5 mega pixel camera before I bought this one and I just cannot tell the difference in print quality as long as I use a memory stick. I usually do not use floppy Discs because the image quality really suffers. It is true that it takes a very long time to take a picture, but I take pictures of flowers or landscape pictures, no action shots, so to me it does not matter. I would buy another one in a second. Problems: absolut ...

I have been a photographer for several years. This is my first digital camera after looking around I thought it was the best for the money. I have taken some unbeiliveable shots. something I didn't expect from a digital. I have taken shots of Miss Budwiser the racing boat at 150 mph and got good shots. I like the idea of the floppy disk Problems: I would like to see an adaptor to use studio strobes and I would be super happy with the camera.

I have had this camera for almost 11 months and still love it. I also have a Nikon Coolpix 990 that I won with a shot that I took with this camera. I almost bought the 990 when I was looking at it and the FD-95. I picked the FD-95 because we already had some memory sticks for our Sony DCR PC100 Digital Video Camera that took 1.3 mp stills and I really liked the zoom. Since then I have also appreciated the image stablizer which the 990 does not have. I have been able to take shots ...

I have had this camera for 8 months now. After doing research on this and other SLR digcams, I chose this one. It does everything I ask it to do. The image quality is great for printing up to 8x10. LIKES: Ease of use-my 8 year old nephew had no problem using this camera despite all the features it has FLOPPIES FLOPPIES FLOPPIES Image quality-great quality overall Macro setting works very well Problems: No REAL problems, however do not like: Record time-takes too long to record the image Shu ...

This is my first digital camera so I don't have anything to compare to. I love everything it does, for what I use it for (I publish a magazine and coinciding web sites). The quality of the pics are fantastic and the ease of the floppies are just killer! Problems: The problem I'm having is that the resolution doesn't exceed 72dpi and the print outs are not very good ... of course I may be doing it the wrong way also - anybody got any suggestions?
