The Sony Mavica MVC-FD75 is an easy-to-use digital camera that offers a 10x optical zoom lens not normally found on an entry-level model. The nearly universal floppy is the storage medium of choice. The 640 x 480 resolution is great for e-mailing, posting on the Web, or making small prints (no larger than 3-by-4 inches).

There are a number of programmed exposure modes that help you take pictures in just about any circumstance, and an auto white balance makes sure your colors remain true. For macro lovers, there's an integrated auto macro mode, which lets you take pictures up close. Images are captured in the JPEG format by default, but you can also record uncompressed bitmaps.

The people who gave this camera 1 star reviews for poor hardcopy print quality should be rating themselves a 1 star, not the camera!
This camera is not built nor, has it ever been advertised as having enough pixel capacity to create great detailed hardcopy photos. This camera, because of its limited resolution is strictly meant for use to make quality jpeg pictures which can be quickly e-mailed or uploaded to a webpage. If you want detailed, crisp hardcopy pictures you had better be looking at a 3.3 meg camera at a minimum and a very high quality color dpi printer as well and the cost of those two together will run you 2k!
This camera does EXACTLY what it is meant and advertised to do - provides superb jpeg quality pictures for web and email purposes. You'll never get great hardcopy photo quality with a 2meg camera, there is no such animal!
If you are strictly looking for a camera with incredible ease of use and simplicity to post pictures on the web without hassles, usb cables, downloading software BS...etc... then this is your camera. If you are looking for great hardcopy photo quality pictures try something along the lines of the Sony MVC FD95 or better.
I strongly suspect the people who have written bad comments about this camera did not do their homework before buying it. Had they done so, they would have known that there is not a 2 meg camera on the market which produces true hardcopy photo quality pictures which even come close to 3.3 meg picture quality because there simply isn't enough pixel resolution available. Blame yourself, not the camera dummies. :-)

This is my first digital camera. It's terrific. I really like the fact that it uses floppy disks. Using default resolution I get 25-30 images per disk. No extra software, no cables, just put the disk in your floppy drive and use explore. Easy easy easy! And lets face it, if you forget to pack disks you can get them ANY where. The picture quality is good. The camera is very easy to use. If you are not a professional photographer, and just want to point and shoot vacation pics family stuff like most of us, you will NOT be disappointed by this camera. I like it.

If you are looking for a digital camera to use for professional purposes or for print work, start searching elsewhere. BUT, if you are in the market for a digital camera that will present you with excellent quality photos for use with email or posting onto Web sites, this camera is a dream. It is very simple and straightfoward to operate which makes it great for beginners. The storage mechanism is a simple 3.5 inch dirt cheap floppy disque that holds between 20-30 default setting images. I use this camera on an almost daily basis and as a professional Web designer I recommend this camera wholeheartedly for this kind of work. But remember, do not purchase this camera if you are planning to use it primarily for printing photos. You WILL be disappointed.

This is my first venture into the world of digital cameras so I don't have any comparisons but I CAN tell you how easy it was to use this camera with minimal learning. I sell on the auctions and asked other sellers....the Mavica was the camera of choice for online selling. This model has great zoom and the perfect quality for internet use (I was told that it wouldn't do very good quality home prints, for that you need a higher model). I found this camera VERY easy to use after just a quick browse through the manual and it was the first time I'd ever touched a digital. I love the fact that the images are stored to regular floppies, no climbing under my desk to hook into the back of the computer. The pictures are a nice quality and the snaps and the download was quick and easy. Wonderful little digital at a GREAT PRICE, I wish I'd done this sooner! A++ in my book!

This is the digital camera par-excellence for any beginner. It is also the perfect camera for an experienced user whose needs are web-based. The Mavicas use floppies that are not only dirt cheap, but reuseable. The standard 1.44 floppy will hold about 24 (in default resolution) pics that can go from the camera to your PC without cables or cradles in just seconds. These images are more than adequate for emails or for posting to a website, though they will barely make for good 4" x 6" photos (the available higher res setting will allow for adequate 5" x 7" prints). The camera is sturdy (albeit a bit heavy), the optics & zoom are very good, the flash is better than average, and the battery life is acceptable. If you're considering a digital for non-professional work, this is a fine choice.

I purchased my FD75 for the birth of my second child as I have not captured too many images of my firstborn and I knew I just needed a gimick to get going. Well, it worked! I take pix almost every day of my family, friends and everyday objects. Living in a different state than the rest of my family has been hard but now we all feel a lot closer sharing pix all the time (my parents have a FD75, too.)
As for prints, I have gotten good 4x6 prints from Ofoto.com and have been very pleased with the quality. Only upon colse inspection do they look less than lovely. As a dedicated scrapbooker I am really quite pleased with the quality. I've even gotten some nice 5x7 Sepia toned prints.
I have only good things to say about this camera. Disregard the reviews of "one star" as it seems that these people did not do their research and wanted pro-quality prints from this little (low mega-pixel) wonder.
GREAT CAMERA!
ps This format works really well with my dinosaur of a computer... I don't have a UPC port and the floppy disk was a deciding factor for me. Very nifty feature.
