Default Yay! I found my Sony Mavica!

After my HP Photosmart Camera recently took a spill and died, I had no camera. Just today i remembered my old Sony Mavica that I bought a long time ago. So I proceeded to tear apart my closet and VOILA! I found it! Once I figure out how to get it to work with the Mac, I will be able to take pics again! It'* a MVC-FD75, and is VERY beat up. May need a new battery.

Yup! Bought it from a school liquidation sale back in '03 for $25. Was complete in the box, beat up all to hell. Now it'* even worse looking, all the paint on the plastic is nearly worn off.

Well..... this sucks.

Doesn't seem to be working. Picked up a new battery at Radio Shack, charged it, popped it in........ no worky. There WAS a floppy disk in it though, has super old pictures on it from 2002.

Which probably has better resolution and especially dynamic range than most digital SLR cameras still.

I'm not kidding! My sig was shot on 35mm... I scan negatives at the equivalent of 7MP and I do so only because the limiting factor is the scanner itself and NOT the film/lens. I get tack sharp pictures with great colours and dynamic range/tonality.
