Re: Digital cameras



I've got the Mavica with 10x zoom and hi res image capability (and the
ability to take movies with sound as well) and must say that the ease
with which I can download images is the real deciding factor for me.
All I have to do is take the disk out of the camera, pop it in my
computer and grab the image in whatever software I need to use.  It
saves as a jpeg image.  Now, for most uses, including printing, that is
just fine, especially at the higher resolutions.  Don't forget, the
quality of the image has as much to do with the printer as it does with
the image...I printed an image I took of a bench on photo paper,
enlarging the image to 11" x 14" (I have a large format printer) and it
was great...not grainy or pixilated...looked like a film photograph.  I
don't eat up batteries because the Sony has a rechargeable battery with
it's own charger.  My experience with other cameras (and I do have it)
is that they save the file as a weird extension that requires special
software to download images off of the camera and save as a usable file.
I just pop the disk in and go.  I like it.  Just my opinion...
