Sony Mavica FD-85 review

I've had my FD85 for over a year now. It has worked without problem from day one and I've taken over 2000 pictures with it so far. Occasionally the jpeg compression will create some noise in the picture details but the vast majority of my pictures have come out very crisp. My next camera will most likely be another mavica, maybe with a more powerful zoom and a built in memory stick option (fd92??).

Since this model is now discontinued I thought I'd comment in case someone finds one used or on Ebay.


Make sure you get good floppy disks and keep them clean. I've only ever lost one or two pictures out of a couple thousand taken at that was due to the floppy disk having a file system error on the disk media (not the camera).
