  • Images Good as the Photographer that's Taking Them

    Sep 5, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Amazing range of options, good image quality
    Cons: Big. Floppies can be good or bad feature.

    Summary: Not too long ago, a friend of mine was in some deep trouble at work. Her boss wanted a website, and he wanted it fast. Little did he know that Terry didn't know the first thing about building websites and she didn't have the time to learn it as fast as ... read more

  • 4 Star Digital Camera!

    Jan 26, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good Versatility, Lots of Options, MPEG Recording Ability, Floppy Drive (No PC Hardware Needed)
    Cons: Big & Bulky, Battery Life Short

    Summary: I was given this camera for Christmas of 2000. I instantly fell in love. The camera didnít need software... it uses a floppy that just inserts into any computer so that you can view instantly. You have several options when taking pictures with this ... read more

  • 2 Years Experience

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Full features of most SLR's. External flash option
    Cons: Disk access time is horrible with floppy or memory stick adapter.

    Summary: This camera is quite versatile and excellant for portrit photography. However, the negatives far outweight the positives for this unit. The disk acces time is so long after the shot is taken that you end up missing others. This is especially ... read more

  • Any Sony Digital works!

    Jul 31, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: This camera is a great step up from the Sony MVC 71 series
    Cons: Like anything else, it's behind technology once you walk out the store.

    Summary: The first digital camera I had experience with was the Sony MVC 71; from there I moved to the MVC-91; and now, I have added the Sony MVC-CD1000 to my digital arsenal.Even at all of their original prices, they have more than earned their salt. ... read more

  • Simple, Compatible, Fun.

    May 15, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use, 3 1/2" Floppy compatibility.
    Cons: Slight auto focus lag, kind of expensive.

    Summary: I bought one of these at work for use in plant maintenance. I had a hard time convincing the IS department that we should make an exception to the corporate standard (a Kodak Digital Science Camera) and allow me to purchase this camera. I finally won ... read more

  • After one year of use...

    May 12, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great SLR features & unparalelled zoom
    Cons: Bulky, not the best resolution

    Summary: I am still in love with it. The rotating 2.5" LCD is convenient & accurate for previewing pictures or showing movies. It makes it much easier to get a picture at knee height, or with out alerting your subject. I have been able to fit well over 30 ... read more

  • PICTURE THIS

    Apr 2, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Takes great pictures, comfortable to operate, and the functions are clear.
    Cons: Over-all shape could be better.

    Summary: I started out in photography when I was a kid with one of those $14.95 cameras that used 126mm film. From there I progressed to (cheap) 35mm, then to (expensive) 35mm and, with a modestly price Ricoh, digital photography. The Ricoh didn't ... read more

  • ANYONE can use this!

    Dec 12, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Versatility, economical, easy to use, quality results
    Cons: LCD screen vulnerable to scratching.

    Summary: I've had my Sony Mavica FD91 for about a year now and couldn't be happier! The high cost of film and developing pictures was preventing me from taking all the photos I wanted and my kids were growing up fast. Even though the camera seemed expensive ... read more

  • Best optical zoom!

    Dec 10, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great zoom, good colors
    Cons: big, low resolution

    Summary: This camera has one of the best optical zooms in its class. Its Digital zoom is good as well, but it is not near as clear as when you are using optical. The camera itself is great, with a very large screen to see everything you are looking for. ... read more

  • FD-91 Worst of the Best

    Dec 3, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good storage medium like all Mavicas, good compatibility.
    Cons: Bulky, reserved mainly for professionals in a climate controlled environment, fragile.

    Summary: I have been impressed with the Mavica digital cameras that I have used in the past. They have all been very easy to use with more features than you can shake a stick at. The storage medium of the 3.5 floppy is incredibly versatile, and a little easier to ... read more

  • Awesome quick movies and gret quality

    Nov 22, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Tons of options, and great quality, motion video recording, floppy disk storeage, see the pict and erase if you do not like!
    Cons: cost and a bit bulky

    Summary: I got this camera almost 2 years ago now, as I wanted a very good digital camera that had lots of features, and would allow me to share the picts with anyone, anywhere, anytime, so I needed one with a floppy disk storage. I love the quality of the ... read more

  • Is it user-friendly?

    Nov 16, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use
    Cons: Too large and heavy for travel

    Summary: This camera has a lot of good features but it is much too large and heavy for the average tourist to pack for transport or carry around while sight-seeing. For that one reason only, I would not recommend it to anyone who may want to use it while ... read more

  • Great Camera - Now all I gotta do is get the CD one

    Nov 16, 2000 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Writes to floppy, Large Zoom
    Cons: Camera is physical large compared to other digital camera

    Summary: I needed a digital camera. I needed one I could use anywhere. I needed one I could take on a two week long trip and not worry about filling up the memory. Sony Mavica was the only was. Cause it stores images on readily available floppy disks, I could ... read more

  • You Don't Need The Manual to Make It Work!

    Oct 7, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Rugged, dependable, excellent photo quality, intuitive and easy interface with PC.
    Cons: I find the camera a little bulky and thus not "handy" when afield. Otherwise, no complaints.

    Summary: At the recommendation of a friend that also collects antiques, I bought my Mavica to take to Antique Gun Shows in order to capture details of finish, condition and engraving on historic weapons. It is a great companion to a lap top computer and the ... read more

  • Well, I was impressed!

    Oct 7, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lightweight, good quality picture, no special software.
    Cons: Somewhat complicated to set up, but not bad.

    Summary: But then, I'm no real camera expert. Usually when you get beyond the Polaroid One-Step, I'm lost! And forget about all those fancy 35mm thingys! I'm totally lost then!! But when it comes to digitals, I've learned a bit. I never have been one for ... read more

  • Take it from a beginner, this

    Sep 27, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Light weight, killer zoom, high quality pics, video capability
    Cons: Not so good in low light, may be bulky for smaller hands

    Summary: I am a fair weekend photographer, but had no experience with digital photography. The main attraction of the FD-91 was the floppy disk storage system. To be able to take large quantities of pictures without taking out a mortgage was tempting. ... read more

  • Longtime 35mm User

    Aug 14, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Ease of use.
    Cons: Some grain in low light.

    Summary: I wanted a digital camera with focal length (zoom) and filters comparable to 35mm SLRs with which I have had much experience. The Sony FD-91 was the first to meet my needs. Great photos and easy to use features. I download pictures to Thinkpad on ... read more

  • Sony Mavica MVC-FD91

    Pros: Removable diskette and quick charge battery
    Cons: Don't know of any

  • The Sony FD-91 is a pleasure to use ...

    Jul 31, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fantastic lens, easy to get to manual operation
    Cons: Floppy doesn't hold much, low light photos can be grainy (but often fixable)

    Summary: The Sony FD-91 is a pleasure to use. I've used other digital cameras, and my biggest complaint was that they don't "feel" (or "look" for that matter) anything like a good 35mm camera ... but the FD-91 has changed all of that. While I ... read more

  • Great for the 35 mm enthusiast

    Jul 18, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: very versatile, many options the 35mm enthusiast will enjoy
    Cons: 1/60 second shutter speed too fast for low light conditions.

    Summary: I am a 35 mm enthusiast, and this is very similar in size and feel. The 14x optical zoom (35 mm to 490 mm) is great. Incredible range for a single lens. The 52mm filter ring makes the many standard filters available for use, and many could carry ... read more
