Hello Asit :)

Do you know if they've integrated compact flash or memory stick technology with the Sonys yet? I agree, you can't beat that optical zoom, and the tendenancy to make pictures green can be easily edited in any graphics program. However, the floppy memory is a *serious* disadvantage, and one that would drive me ape. I really like to be able to shoot a whole vacation in hi-res on one card. :)

Was there a user/password we needed to use to view your photos? I was unable to view them and I'd really like to see them :)

Hi All
The following pictures were taken by SONYs bottom of the line
digital camera, MAVICA FD-73. This camera uses only 3.5, 1.44 MB
floppy disks for recording media. Since this is from the days before
the ever-increasing MegaPixels, this one is capable of giving you a
maximum of a mere 350 KPixels.

However, when it comes to taking pictures like the following, e.g.,
very close objects under the most compromising lighting conditions,
very few cameras really come close to this one. The reason, a 10X
Optical Zoom.

Very few cameras are equipped with a 10X Optical Zoom these days. Not
only had SONY just discontinued the production of the FD-73, none of
its models now has a 10X Optical Zoom.

All of the following photos are untouched.

1) Flash, automatic, low setting (Bream)

2) Flash, automatic, medium setting (Pleco)

3) Flash, automatic, high setting (Albino white Catfish)

4) Flash, automatic, low setting, Close-up (Crawfish)

5) Flash for fill,daylight,automatic,low setting(Walking Catfish)

6) Fluorescent aquarium light
