shots. Images can be
downloaded to either a Mac or PC via USB connectivity, which means the
camera can be connected to any USB-based Windows 98/Me/2000/XP and Mac OS
8.6 or later computer without installing any software.
You can capture far more than still images with the MPEG Movie VX
function. Most digital cameras' movie modes are limited to 30- or
60-second clips, but the Mavica CD350 can keep shooting until you've
filled the CD-R/RW, approximately 6 minutes at full VGA resolution (640 x
480, 16 frames per second).
Though simple enough for a novice, the Mavica CD350 model includes
advanced multipoint autofocus and multipattern exposure systems to capture
the shot properly the first time. The camera's new auto fill-flash
function can even sense when a subject is in shadow and automatically fire
Other features include:
Large 2.5-inch TFT LCD
Built-in flash with auto, on,
off, slow, and red-eye reduction modes
Scene modes include twilight,
twilight portrait, landscape, beach, snow, fireworks, and fast shutter
Two-shot burst mode and
multiburst mode of 16 images sized at 320 x 240 pixels

I love my Sony Mavica 350. I am a college student, and although the camera
was a bit on the expensive side, it has never failed me. I have never had
problems with other CD's and all of my pictures turn out beautifully. Like
some users have said, it is not hard to use, and the manual is very well
layed-out. The only downside would be the camera's size. Since I am in
college, I take my camera to many parties, and it can be a nuisance
sometimes to carry it around unless you have a carrying case. However, the
quality of the pictures definitely makes up for it!!

Reviewer: Trevor J. Hall (PERRY,
A truly magnificent product. The mini-CD format is robust and so
convenient - no longer any need to download pictures to the computer en
masse - just view and select them one by one to e-mail, print or modify -
they are safely stored on the CD, which fits in the DVD or CD-Rom drive of
any computer that I have yet met.
The camera is easy to use and captures superb images either singly or in
bursts and it will even take sound movies!
There was no problem with using SONY 200Mb Mavica miniCD's a available for
mere pence. Easy to use and store away as one fills them up - there is a
noticable tendency for one to take many more pictures with so much storage
The camera is robust and light and easy to use both outdoors and inside it
gives superd quality images. The battery seems to last, on average for
about 240 images but one can always carry a spare. It has performed well
in subzero and warm sunlight outdoors with never a glitch.
This is a camera which embodies everything that I need, I wholeheartedly
recommend it to anyone as a valuable general purpose camera for both work

I absolutely love this camera...very easy for an "old gal" to understand
and use, and reasonably priced. I'm enjoying my family's pictures as a
slideshow on my desktop, and I learned how to do it myself!!! Not bad for
someone who's "older than dirt."
