Product description
Product Information
Sony's new MVC-CD300 digital still camera features 3.3-megapixel resolution, a 3x Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar zoom lens and extensive manual focus and exposure controls for easy use. But it also makes saving photos a snap. With the MVC-CD300, you can store more than 1,000 VGA still images on a single CD-R compact disc. For even greater flexibility, save the photos on a CD-RW compact disc, which can be erased and reused hundreds of times. Both CDs, which can also store more than 90 minutes of MPEG video, are compatible with virtually any personal computer. And moreover, the MVC-CD300 is just slightly taller than the CD itself.

    I Love My Mavica CD300

    I love the ease and functionality of the Mavica CD300. I love the fact that I don't have to download software in order to view the pictures I've taken. The camera takes quality pictures. I can either zoom in or zoom out and the picture quality remains the same. The viewing screen is large enough to effectively see what you are shooting and viewing. The only thing I had a problem with was the sun. In bright sunlight, the screen becomes virtually useless but ... I was able to find and purchase an attachable viewing device which allows you to use the camera in bright sunlight. The device is called a Viewfinder (DVAC MVc). Because the Mavica camera is no longer made, it is difficult, but not impossible, to locate the Viewfinder. I also love the fact that I can shoot pictures and recored them to mini cd's. The older models of Mavica's, recorded the pictures to floppy disks and most computers no longer have a floppy drive. I prefer using this camera to the Canon that I also have. For the money, I don't think there is a camera that can beat the Mavica CD300.

    As a one hour photo lab specialist, we tried several different digital cameras, and also developed the film from each, and I can say that the Sony Mavica CD made the clearest and most professional looking pictures we developed.
    The sony has more features that most digital cameras, as it works in Tintype, black white, and solarize, to name a few. You can also cut your pictures right on the camera, and save them in the new size.
    Being able to write your pictures to a mini cd/r/w, allows you to cut down on memory, but also lets you take out the cd, catalogue it, and store your pics this way. Being able to place a mini cd right into your computer to see your pics, is a added plus.

    Mavica CD300 Review

    This is an amazing camera to say the least. I have the original receipt from circuit city for $999.99 on 15-June-2001 and it was worth every penny.

    You can save off all of your pictures to the CD's you use to shoot the pictures so you don't have to fumble with those expensive memory cards that always get lost. You burn the CD while you are taking pictures (well the camera automatically does that for you) and you have a great media to hold all your photos. I just label mine and have years of collections.

    One other thing that I love about the CD's is that you can mail one to anybody you with to share pics with and they can just place it in the CD drive of their computer. You don't have to worry about them having the right memory card slot reader.

    One other useful feature of this camera is the CD burner option. Once you plug the camera into your computer you can use the camera as a CD burner!!! How cool is that? :)

    3.3 megapixels doesn't sound like much but I have to tell you that you can take some really stunning pictures with this camera in nearly any condition. I have taken photos and framed them; when visitors stop they are asking where I found the great picture. :)) (I am not anywhere close to a photographer to say the least) That is how easy to use this slick device is to use.

    I would give this camera a 10 - 10. In fact I with they still made the CD cameras like this one.

    Sony Mavica MVC 3.3 Megapixel Digital Camera

    What a great piece of technology! If you care for it properly, it will care for you. I use a Mac format at home and a PC and work and it functions seamlessly between formats with a little practice. Look at my web site at www.myspace.com/lexingtonareac​hamber and see the photos I've taken around town with this beauty. I've had Chamber of Commerce members come to me asking if I would set up their website and take photos for them because they have been so impressed with the quality of the pictures. I've worked in bright sunlight, low light and the dark and it just doesn't get any better than this. I had to purchase the mini CD's on ebay because they were unavailable at WalMart or even the local Radio Shack, but it was worth the trouble for the results you get.

    If you're an average photographer, you'll feel like a pro. If you're a good photographer, you'll get raves with what you can do with this machine. It was an amazing $150 investment and worth 10 times the money.

    Sony Makes the Best Camera's

    I have owned this camera for 3 years and I haven't had one problem with it. I bought it used off ebay for $380.00 and it was worth every penny. For what I do with it 3.3mp is more then what I need. In fact I rarely even used that as most of my pics I send over the internet or do websites with and 3.3 would be to large of a file to send over the net. The best thing about this camera is that I didn't have to bring around a cable with me to get my pics off the camera and onto a computer. I just burned a cd and dropped it in the computer and off I went. Talk about convience! Piture quality is great and it has a ton of features like movie making and filters. I would highly recommend this camera to any one even if you are compairing it to a 7.2 megapixel it doesn't matter because your never going to use 7.2mp. Sony's lense the carl Zeiss take a great picture with no blurr.
