A dream come true for the beginner

 

The Mavica FD100 is the second digital still camera I've owned. I've been using this camera almost daily for 2 1/2 years and have never had a single problem. This camera has been dropped down stairs, been wet from rain and has been toted around ...

Durable, easy to use

Bulky, no MPEG sound

The Gentle Giant

 

I have now owned this camera for over two years, so this is long term use review. Even if you've never owned or used a digital camera before this one is intuitive and simple to use right out of the box as a point-and-shoot. As you become more familiar ...

Ability to view photos directly on T.V. Ability to use floppy disks for film

Large size, awkward to carry, viewfinder can washout in sunlight

Everyone needs at least one of these

 

First let me tell you buying this was a ‘no-brainer’ for me. I already own a FD-87 and would have bought another one if I could have found one. Don’t get the wrong idea, there’s nothing wrong with the FD-87. It’s just that we...

Option to store on either floppy or memory stick

Haven't found one yet

A camera everyone should have.

 

This light weight camera is the best and has come WAY down in price from when I got it for my classroom. It is easy to use, and is very versatile even for the technology illiterate

Easy to use. Can hold a lot of great quality pictures

A little bulkier then some of the smaller ones, memory cards are a little pricey

Give Your 35mm Camera To The Kids

 

I purchased this camera because I was going on a trip to mainland China and I didn't want to lug a 35mm camera with me and have to worry about purchasing and developing all those canisters of film upon my return. I also knew that I would be taking a...

Lightweight. Floppy Disk or Memorystick. Good battery life

Poor flash coverage. Shutter delay

Perfect Pix Right Out of the Box

 

If you thought a Polaroid was fun and easy, the FD100 puts you into the digital age effortlessly. Most people can use this camera right out of the box. Because it is so basically intuitive, with menus on the BIG LCD display, you get a feeling right...

Super Easy and Fun to Use. Excellent pix

A great entry level digital camera

 

The Mavica FD100 is a very good entry level camera with more than enough features to make a user happy. At 1.2 megapixels, it is NOT a super high resolution camera, but most users do not need the high resolution offered by more expensive cameras. The...

Great entry level camera with pro features
