Sony Mavica FD-71 review
Great starter cam, but I outgrew it fast. The 640 x 480 resolution is great for web use, but I needed more. The battery system is unbeatable, so stuck with Sony for my next digicams. I now have a DSC-D700 and DSC-F55.
Photos taken with the 71 are often grainy, and fine detail more than 14 to 20 feet from the camera is usually lost.
If you're in the market for a beginner camera, and intend on using it for the web the FD71 is one of the best solutions. However, if you need to print... look for more resolution
640 x 480 resolution
Poor Low light performance
